First of all, I have to say Happy Canada Day to all of my fellow Canadians! It's a bit of a dreary day here in NL, but at least I have a super exciting post to make up for it!
June 26th was my 3 year blogging anniversary! That's right, 3 years! I can hardly believe it's been that long.
I wanted to do something extra special to celebrate this milestone, so I contacted Christy from KBShimmer and asked her if she'd be interested in collaborating with me to create a custom nail polish. When she said yes, I knew exactly what I wanted to create. I've said before that KBShimmer I Got A Crush On Blue is an all-time favourite indie polish of mine, and I always thought that there should be a green version of it. So that's exactly what I asked Christy to do!
Next I had to decide on a name. I wanted to do a play on the book title Green Eggs & Ham, so I came up with Green Hex & Glam! I absolutely love the name.
So without futher ado, I present to you KBShimmer Green Hex & Glam by Kayla Shevonne!
Green Hex & Glam is a deep emerald green jelly base packed with different sizes of holographic hex glitters. Much like I Got A Crush On Blue, Green Hex & Glam has quite a lot of depth to it.
Formula wise, Green Hex & Glam was excellent. It glided really easily onto my nails. I did store the bottle upside down for a few minutes before applying so that all of the larger hex pieces would redistribute. I still had to fish a couple of the bigger pieces out, but it's totally worth it in my opinion. My photos all show three easy coats. Two coats would give a more transparent/jelly-ish look, but I personally wanted that deeper rich green.
I truly love this polish. It's one that I'll definitely be wearing with pride! Thanks so much to Christy for making my vision a reality.
And just for fun, here's a big ol' in-your-face macro bottle shot.
So what do you think about my collaboration shade with KBShimmer? If you like it, you should check back tomorrow because I'll be giving away a few bottles of this beauty! I was going to do both the giveaway and swatches in one post, but I thought it would get too long and wordy. Plus, it gives you more time to drool over the shade this way, hehe. ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
