My collaboration shade with KBShimmer - Pearls Gone Wild!

Oh my goodness!

I have some crazy fantastic news.  Crazy news!  I feel like I have unlocked the best blogger achievement ever.  I have collaborated with KBShimmer to create a polish for the Fall 2017 Collection.  What the what?!?!?

KBShimmer is the biggest and best known indie polish maker in the business (at least I think so).  I was unbelievably excited to be added to their regular blogger list 2 years ago.  But being asked to create a new shade of nail polish with them is like beyond amazing.  I really hope you love "Pearls Gone Wild" as much as I do.  Squeeee!!!

Pearls Gone Wild - A soft grey jelly base packed with silver holographic microglitter and a red shifting shimmer.  This is the Mega Flame formula that we all know and love with some added shifting shimmer.  The shimmer shifts from a warm red to copper to gold at an angle.  Application is smooth and removal is not totally awful like you would expect with a glitter polish.  A glossy top coat is recommended as there is a very slight texture to this shade when it dries down.  I am showing you two coats with Clearly On Top here.

My inspiration for this polish was cool toned grey with warm opalescent accents.  I had visions of raw, rough opal stones and photos of the Milky Way peaking out of a dim grey sky.  We all know I love a good grey polish.  They are my fave!  So Christy and I worked together to find the perfect finish and the best combo of cool and warm tones.  I am super happy with what we came up with!  That red shimmer flashing through that cool grey sparkly base fits my vision perfectly.  What do you think?!
