KB Shimmer Teal Another Tale is described on the KB Shimmer site as “dusty teal green polish with a strong pink almost duo-chrome shimmer. A color I imagine would be on a mermaidâ€™s tail. Micro holographic glitters ad[d] a bit of shine.”Â
Teal is the color for Ovarian Cancer, which also happens to be the month of September.
If you’ve followed my blog, you know that I had a hysterectomy a month ago because everything in my female reproductive system (cervix, fallopian tubes and ovaries) were screaming, “We’re about to become cancerous!!!” I was able to avoid ovarian cancer and while late, I wanted to post a teal polish to honor those who were not as fortunate.
Remember to get yourselves checked, ladies! Ovarian cancer can happen at any time in your life. Just sayin’.
I loved this color…it was teal with this gorgeous pink-y shimmer. I will be wearing this during the fall and winter months. Plus, it’s also the color of my local hockey team, the San Jose Sharks.
Application was easy – two thin coats and this bad baby was opaque. It also dried very quickly, which was surprising. However, I shouldn’t be because I’ve started to become familiar with KB Shimmer polishes and they’re all fairly quick drying. I’ve yet to be disappointed by one.
NOTE: This is a thirsty topcoat and the shimmer will be slightly lumpy. Next time I will use a coat of Gelous and then the top coat. It is also dries slightly matte. It’s great on its own or with a top coat – totally up to you.
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.
Though you can’t see it, I left the pointer finger plain and no high gloss topcoat.
What do you think? Will you be purchasing this color?
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!
