KBShimmer 2013 Summer Collection Blinded by the Bright Review/Swatch

Holy Cow! Get your sunglasses on!  This is KBShimmer's "Blinded by the Bright" from their Summer 2013 Collection.
*Provided for Review
KBShimmer Blinded by the Bright
Blinded by the Bright is a highlighter neon yellow that contains multiple sizes and colors of hex glitter.

As you can see by my less than stellar paint job, I put a white polish down as a base (Julep Kate).  Now that I have been wearing neons more, I automatically use a white base.  I read on KBShimmer's site that you don't need a white base for this - I'll have to test that next time.

There is an average amount of glitter in this polish. Some dips of the brush came with only a few pieces, but if you apply two coats, you will be able to get a pretty good amount on each nail.  It is also helpful to hold the polish upside-down for a while, before you paint your nails. 

If you are looking for a traffic stopper, pick this puppy up.  It's probably the brightest my nails have ever been:)  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a wonderful week.

Where to find KBShimmer
Blinded by the Bright is currently $8.75/bottle.

  9. I agree with Yun! Although it could very well be "the brightest thing you've ever worn," it looks great on you!! I say neon it up, girl!!! :-D I'm obsessed with neons, especially neon glitters (like Safety Stick & Clowning Around). ;-) If you ever want the highlighter yellow - the glitter, ChG's Yellow Polka Dot Bikini is what I have. :-) Lovin' the extra POW that the glitters bring to this polish, though! P.S. your application is perfect! I'm still tryin' to get there...

    1. I know, I think I need Safety Stick. I'll have to check out the China Glaze.

  10. I can't even tell you put anything underneath, your paint job is in fact quite stellar ;) This is super bright, but such a fun color :) The glitters make it easier on the eyes. You captured it wonderfully.

  11. That is so bright, but so super fun too. You did a great job distributing the glitters - I actually prefer indies where you do thin layers to build up the glitter so this sounds like a win.

    1. Yes, it's cool because if you do more coats, some are muted and some are on top....like a jelly sandwich:)

  12. This is bright and so summery! I love yellow polish and this looks like the perfect shade :)

  13. I am so, so scared of yellows, but that is wonderfully eye-searing & looks great on you!
