KBShimmer What's Your Damage? Neon Matte Mani

Hey guys!

I apologize for not being around the past couple of days, but anyone who follows me on twitter may have read that I recently sprained my wrist. It's not a bad sprain, but it's bad enough to bum me out. I had to cancel all of my client appointments this week to give it time to rest/heal and I've been unable to do much in the way of creating blog content. Needless to day, I've felt extraordinarily unproductive these past few days.

I was feeling good enough to paint my nails last night, and it didn't hurt too much, but holding up my chunky camera to get photos of this mani was the biggest issue. Oh what we wouldn't do for an awesome manicure. So hopefully you like this one considering the pain I went through to get the photos, haha.

KBShimmer What's Your Damage is from the new Summer 2013 line. I already own three of the shades from this collection (and I showed you swatches here) and I recently placed an order for four of the others. I can't wait for them to arrive!

What's Your Damage? features a milky white jelly base with lots of black, hot pink and neon green glitter. The glitter comes in varying shapes and sizes; there's hexes, squares, circles and small shards. To create a fun and coordinating mani, I decided to paint What's Your Damage? on only my index and middle nails while I used China Glaze Hang-ten Toes on my ring nail and China Glaze I'm with the Lifeguard on my thumb and pinky nails.

We all know that neons typically dry to a semi or completely matte finish, so the two China Glaze neons had pretty much dried and were looking fairly matte. I decided I liked the matte look, so instead of adding Seche Vite to the mani like I had planned, I instead used my OPI Matte Top Coat. I'm really glad I decided to go matte because I think this looks pretty cool!

I read recently that KBShimmer is releasing another new collection! My god this brand is absolutely murdering my wallet!

KBShimmer polishes are available directly from the KBShimmer website for those of you in the US. But don't worry if you're not in the US because they're also available from Harlow & Co. They always sell out pretty quickly from Harlow & Co., so be sure to keep up with them on Facebook for restock info.
