My Little Watermarble 

Watermarble is my favorite sport!! 

For this mani I used 3 polishes from the latest collaboration release from China Glaze. This collection features 12 polishes all dedicated to my childhood oops I meant My Little Pony. Yes I’m proud to say my childhood, I had all the My Little Pony toys my mom allowed herself to be coerced into buying lol. Sorry mom, I didn’t keep my promise of never wanting any other toy after that lol.

The colors I used below: L to R: Too Busy Being Awesome, Cute Mark The Spot, Sweet As Pinkie Pie.

These wm so beautifully I had absolutely no problems 


If you haven’t purchased any of these polishes, you’re missing out a good mani and some good memories.

There’s also 2 LE sets that you can purchase on eBay, Sally’s and Ulta Beauty.

Have you purchased any polish from this collection? Which one(s)?

Beauty Blogger Tag

I know y’all have noticed that my posts have been so dry lately, it’s safe to say that I’ve been in a blogging slump. Some days I’m so amped about posting when I think of ideas for a blog post, but then when I actually sit down to type it out I feel then it’s not a worthy post. 

So today I said you know what, this is your blog hello did you forget? Any post I put my mind to is better than letting it fall by the wayside. 

Allow me to entertain you through this beauty blogger tag I found on Google…..

Lipstick or lip gloss? -Lipstick all day everyday, matte if ya got it!!

Are you a morning person or a night person? -Morning! I woke up at the crack of the sun’s ass! At night I fall asleep so early, I literally have to force myself to stay awake!


Name your three favourite tv shows? – Cake/Cupcake Wars, The King Of Queens, The Golden Girls

Which makeup brand is your favourite? Why? – Maybelline New York, I feel like with their shade range THEY GET IT!! 

The best makeup product discovery of the year 2017 so far? -I’ve religiously been doing my eyes FIRST for a month or two and I see the difference with my struggle with under eye creasing & my dark circle bleeding through my foundation. It has stopped my eyeliner from running down & my mascara when I’d blink.


The biggest makeup product flop so far this year? – Cant think of any so that’s a good thing!

Your favourite snack? – strawberry yogurt with granola bits.

If you had the possibility to change something in the world. What would that be? – The way society finds a way to put people into this “have & have not” category. A lot of people spend their lives trying to fit into a world where people are always promoting “be yourself”. But when you do your own thing, they want to label you; be it based on career, financial status, lifestyle or looks. *steps off soap box* lol.

Name three beauty products everyone should own?– Maybelline Matte +Poreless foundation, NYX Matte black liquid eyeliner, Juvia’s Place Nubian 1 palette (I just told y’all my every day go to products).


Name three things you love about yourself? -lol don’t you just love answering this question! I love that I’m assertive. I love that I can change what I don’t like about myself & I love that I am always evolving.

I enjoyed doing this post. What question in this post did you like the most? Please tag me if you decide to do this post on your blog.

All The Bright Moves collection by KBShimmer 

*press release*



“What we gonna do now is go back…. allll the way back”…….

I love this time of the year when makeup and polish makers bring out the loud & bright colors, it brings instant happiness into my life!!
So tell me, where you anything like me during my childhood? Did you spend your Saturday mornings watching Zach and Kelly? Did the Fresh Prince theme song play in your head (that you knew word for word) while you begged for the latest Lisa Frank stickers? Were Caboodles and Trapper Keepers all the rage among your friends? Did you load your arms with jelly bracelets and died without your Aqua Net? Was your scrunchie collection the envy of your friends? If you answered yes, then you might be a child of the late 80’s and early 90’s, the inspiration for KBShimmer’s latest nail polish collection, All The Bright Moves. Based on that time of neon colors, stickers, and big hair, let these 6 neon shades take you back to a time where fashion was so bright, you had to wear shades.

 

The All The Bright Moves collection consists of 6, juicy shades that are almost crelly like in formula. These shockingly bright shades are inspired by the late 80’s and early 90’s of my childhood. Each covers well in 2 coats without a white base, but those with longer nails may prefer 3 coats.

All The Bright Moves (NEONS!!): Launch 04/29/17 at Polish Con NY – Online 05/05/17

You have time to nail those moves for this collection, get bright or get left!!
