KB Shimmer Snow Way!

Hey guys! Today I have for you KB Shimmer Snow Way!, which is a cornflower blue base full of white matte medium/small/micro glitters, as well as some hidden iridescent microglitter. Super, super pretty! I first tried it by itself but I found that two coats was a bit patchy but three was a bit lumpy, so I layered it over Hard Candy Sky to solve that problem. Sky is much lighter than Snow Way and doesn't show up in the final mani at all, but it did help me reach opacity/avoid patches, which is what I was going for. Check it out!

On my nails:
1 coat Innisfree Eco Peel-off Base coat
2 coats Hard Candy Sky
2 coats KB Shimmer Snow Way!
1 coat Seche Vite

This mani was super pretty! The white glitters from the bottom layer really create a very magical, very snowy look, which I think is awesome. It was mostly flat with two coats (like I said, there was a bit too much glitter clumping together with three coats, which made it a little lumpy) although after I took these pictures I ended up adding one more coat of topcoat to tame a few unruly glitters. No big deal, though -- this color is so pretty~ I love this shade of blue :)
