In many ways, KB Shimmer Don’t Pink Twice reminds me of my neon splattered youth where I thought I was all cute and awesome in this bright clothing. Yea, no one needed to see that.
As most of the world knows, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Throughout this month, I’ll be throwing in pink polishes. Though October is primarily known for Breast Cancer, did you know it’s also Animal Shelter Awareness month and Filipino History month as well? I have some great things in store for October, so stay tuned!
KB Shimmer Don’t Pink Twice is described as “A(n) almost neon magenta pink, Donâ€™t Pink Twice is the first of our matte polishes.Â This pink polish has a subtle blue micro flake that shines in the light.” This is a beautiful color that dries and is wonderfully opaque in two coats.
My camera freaked out on this and in some shots it was pink, others it was orange and in others it just wasn’t bright. This is bright. Make no mistake. I did include a shot where it was the jpg version and the RAW version. Under most circumstances, this camera really captures the greatness of the color, but this time around? No.
As always, please click on the image which will double in sizeâ€¦then click on the image again (it will triple in size!) to view the photo in its original size.
This is a lot closer to the color in real life. Sadly, it does not show the real brightness of the polish. It’s so bright, you need to wear shades!
While I usually tend to pick the JPG version of the picture on my camera, this time it was not accurate.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, KB Shimmer will donate $2 from every bottle purchased of Don’t Pink Twice to a cancer charity – read more about it at KB Shimmer.
Someone asked me why I donâ€™t use a light box â€“ Iâ€™ll be honest: I donâ€™t think light boxes truly reflect what a color is like in real life. While I think a light box can get you prettier, edgier shots of a polish, I donâ€™t think itâ€™s very realistic. So while my images may not be as richly saturated with jewel tones or deep hues, you are getting a real-life look at the polish in action.
Thank you for making it this far. If you liked what you read, please share this â€“ sharing is caring!
