KBShimmer Limited Edition Flakie Collection Swatches & Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

KBShimmer has a very Limited Edition Flakie Collection releasing on December 1st, and I received all 6 to share with you today!

I am showing all 6 flakies over KBShimmer Eclipse to show each one over the same dark surface, but flakies also look fabulous over other dark cremes.

Lets get started!

Dark Matter

Dark Matter

Dark Matter is a cobalt blue flakie top coat.  I used 1 coat for these photos.

Aurora might be my favorite of the 6!  Aurora shifts from fiery orange to golden yellow to a gorgeous green.  I used 1 coat for these photos.

And just for fun… my favorite thing to do with flakies!  MATTE THEM ALL (ok tonight I didn’t have time to do ALL, so this is Rainbow Shield with a matte top coat)

 Application wise – these were perfection.  I used 1 coat of each flakie top coat over KBShimmer Eclipse (black creme) and they all show beautifully and I got a good amount of flakes in just 1 coat.   I topped each flakie with Clearly On Top Fast Dry Top Coat, also from KBShimmer!

Where to Buy: KBShimmer Etsy Shop

Release Date: December 1st

Remember, these are limited edition, so grab them while you can!  They will be available as a set of 6 for quick purchase, but also individual bottles!

What did you think?  Will you be grabbing any flakies?
