KBShimmer: Oh Splat! Nail Polish

Swatch & Review

   Today I'm showing my first KBShimmer polish: Oh Splat!  They make so many amazing glitter blends, it was hard to pick one as a favorite but in the end Oh Splat! stayed at the top of my wish list.  This polish is extra special to me because it was given to me by one of my favorite nail bloggers, Jen from The Nail Polish Project.  You should go check out her blog once you're done reading here!


   Oh Splat! is a white creme polish with a rainbow of glitter inside it.  Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple: they're all there!  And in four different sizes.  I used three coats by itself for my manicure.  The formula was a little bit thick so I will try adding some polish thinner before I use it the next time.  I finished my nails with one coat of Poshe and it leveled the polish out just fine.  Also, my nails were smooth and texture free.

 

   The glitters are metallic but appear matte in the polish when they get covered by the white base.  The glitter in the "top layer" is more shiny and sparkly than it appears in pictures.  It makes for interesting depth!  =)


   I had to take pictures of both hands to show off the variety in this manicure!  It was really eye-catching.  The white is surprisingly bright, definitely a creme formula.  It looks best at 3 coats, because it has a lot of depth and glitter while being perfectly opaque.  Sadly this manicure wasn't very durable, though.  Despite not having any glitter texture the large hexes were flaking off my nails, and it started chipping after a day.  Hopefully it was just a fluke!


   KBShimmer polishes are $8.75 for a full-size bottle.  You can buy them from their website or on etsy.  Thanks for looking!

  1. This looks fabulous on you Rochelle, and I can't believe how long your nails have got! I'm sorry to hear it doesn't last very long though, that is really disappointing.

  2. Thanks, Jen!
    Aww, my nails aren't quite that amazing. I actually wore this manicure right before filing my nails down, and I have an awful habit of posting my swatches out of order. Combine that with my apparent inability to keep my nails at one consistent length and they must look like they do crazy growing and shrinking! =P
    And yes, it is too bad that it wasn't more durable. I don't think I've heard any bad reviews on KBShimmer polishes, though. Hopefully this one is an exception or I just had a really bad day for polish without realizing it. The look is fantastic and it got a lot of compliments! So thanks again. ♥

  19. Heya! I understand this is kind of off-topic but
    I needed to ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as yours take a
    massive amount work? I'm brand new to blogging but I do write in my journal everyday. I'd like to start
    a blog so I can share my own experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!

  21. Hello Maya! So nice to see you stop by my blog. I'll try to help you! Right now I'm not able to place orders and ship nail polish overseas, as I'm busy taking care of my newborn daughter, but this is what I found about KBShimmer's International stockist.

    KBShimmer polishes are sold by Harlow & Co! See their shipping info here:
    http://www.harlowandco.org/pages/shipping

    And their selection of KB polishes:
    http://www.harlowandco.org/collections/kbshimmer


    Right now Oh Splat! is out of stock there, but I would create an account there and contact them to see when they'll have a restock, and make sure they can ship to you. Harlow & Co sells a TON of awesome polish brands, so maybe by the time they restock Oh Splat! you could have saved up enough to go on a nail polish splurge! I hope that helps. =)
