Christmas Now by KBShimmer & I!

Press Sample

Hello all of my lovelies!!! Oh how it has been so long!  I had planned, and still might, make an update post for what happened the last few months!  It's basically that my life got really stressful, but things are finally calming down and I'm getting comfortable in my new routine with work and commuting!  I'm trying to get back into things now - slowly, but surely.  I've missed blogging too much!

I did want to quick show you my collaboration polish that I did with Christy of KBShimmer!  It releases tomorrow and you can purchase it at (US) and also at (Shipping is FREE for orders over $50 within Canada and to the US, if you're international shipping is FREE on orders over $75 (but not more than $300)).

Christmas Now has been a saying in our house for a few years now.  It stemmed from my impatience to be able to wait until Christmas for present time!  I love getting presents, don't get me wrong!  I mean, who doesn't, right?  But I'm just as bad about GIVING gifts.  I get so excited and I just want people to open it right now.  Right. This. Second.

So it's become a joke every year as I begin to want to give everyone their gifts early.  Plus it's Mr. CC's birthday in December, so it's extra surprises all month long!  That doesn't sound so bad, right?

So as you've seen, I put text in the pictures of how many coats and what not.  I figured it's less repeating myself and easier to quickly see.  Hope that helps.  I used KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish each mani.  I recommend 2 coats for a perfectly smooth finish!  There's a ton of glitter in here ;-)

Next, I wanted to show the versatility of Christmas Now!  Since it's a jelly, there are so many fun ways to wear it!  Layering is a perfect way to change the look.  Here a foil base reminds me of Christmas wrapping paper!!

I can't wait to try other bases.  Of course, white will make it look bright green and a regular green will just reduce the amount of coats you'll need.  That way you can determine if you want a little glitter or a lot!

For lots of glitter, 3 coats looks so awesome!

I love how the glitter is suspended throughout the green base!  I asked Christy to do a happy bright green jelly and she nailed it perfectly!  I wanted gold stars like on top of the tree, along with round glitters like the ornaments and squares like the presents under the tree!  I couldn't be happier with how my vision was turned into reality!  :-D

It is SO amazing to see this day arrive!  Thanks again to Christy for this amazing opportunity!
