KBShimmer's Totally Tubular
I'd like to extend a big "hello" to all my new readers (and a fond "howdy" to those of you who've been in it for the long haul!). I do hope you'll stick around for awhile! To that end, I do have a bit of bribery to lure you in. Because of the great response to my Birthdanniversary Giveaway , Over the Top Coat now has more than 100 followers on Blogger...this means I'll be doing another giveaway! I'm hoping to have it organized by the end of the month, so if you don't win a prize in my current giveaway (accepting entries through July 18th), stick around to see what goodies I'll throw your way in a couple of weeks!
Ok, ok, on to the polish! KBShimmer is a fantastic indie brand that I'm sure many of you are familiar with. I don't own too many of them (too many lovelies, too little budget), but I couldn't resist snagging a mini bottle of Totally Tubular when I saw it in the sale section of her website. I'm a sucker for a good deal...and dots. Always the dots!
Totally Tubular is a beautiful turquoise-y teal crelly base with fuschia, aqua, and royal blue dots and micro glitter. The color combination here is superb. I could not stop staring at my nails all day! The blue in this polish is so perfectly summer!
I actually layered 2 coats of Totally Tubular over 2 coats of China Glaze Sunday Funday for this manicure, mostly because I was too lazy to take off a previous mani and didn't want it to show through. I'm certain TT would build up nicely on its own; the crelly was a nice consistency, not too sheer and not too thick. Application overall was a dream...I'm a bit sad that I decided on the mini instead of the full size lol
Do you guys own any KBShimmer polishes? What do you think of them?
Thanks so much for reading!
