Obsessed: Kbshimmer- I'll Be Chrome For Christmas!

I am so so very happy I broke my almost year long no buy for this polish.  
I mean, look at those chrome flakes!!!

Kbshimmer: I'll Be Chrome For Christmas


It was so hard seeing all the great polish deals on Black Friday, knowing I had no business buying ANYTHING.  So when I saw that my go to Canadian stock list for Kbshimmer, Harlow & Co was also having a great sale, I decided to let myself spend just enough to get free shipping! The first thing that jumped into my cart was I'll Be Chrome For Christmas by Kbshimmer, I had seen a few swatches and was really really disappointed thinking I would have to purchase it after the holiday season, then bam, 30% off!  WooHoo!

I added two other pretty polishes to my cart, another Kbshimmer, Santa Claws (a new magnetic, which I am still mastering) and Picture Polish Kako.  With the Postal strike going on here at the WORST possible time of year, I did have to wait a few extra days for them to get here.

In my usual fashion I used them all the day they arrived, but by far my favourite was the Chrome for Christmas.  I've done more than a few looks with it already and will probably do at least a few more before the holiday season is gone!  Here is what I did with the other two though.

BOTTOM: My new favourite coffee polish, Kako from Picture Polish
Stamped using CjS 002,042,051,056, Painted Polish Stamped in Clay and plate CjS-89

I wanted to keep it simple at first to let the flakes really shine, so I just stamped some simple trees using CjS 038 and Lina Nail Art Supplies plate 4 Seasons- Winter 01.  I am definitely going to wear this again as I only had it on a few hours before I dinged a nail.

For the next one, I really wanted to try the adorable layered stamping plate from Clear Jelly Stamper, CjS C-26 (presents and trees) and added the 'be merry and bright' from CjS C-19.  I was really happy with how these turned out!

Even though the placement of that poinsettia outline got away from me in this one I still loved it because well.... I am in LOVE with this polish.  I've always been a big fan of white/light crellies packed full of glitter or flakies and with all that shifting chrome, it's just perfect!

This look I just did today, wanted to take my dotting tools and detail brush from Nailstuff.ca for a spin and saw this design while scrolling through Instagram (thanks beccas_nails ) and thought it was adorable!

Oh and because my bestie and her husband really are just the best, they surprised me again this week with another mug to match the other!  AND I found a way to use them both!  Now, I've probably only watched Christmas Vacation about 10 times so far this year, but I will watch it a lot more the closer we get to Christmas! 
Best Frikkin Mugs Ever!

Do you have a Christmas Movie that you can watch on repeat?
Are you going to grab this I'll Be Chrome For Christmas while you can?
I hope you're all well and surrounded by the giving spirit of the Holiday Season, whatever your Holiday may be! ~Kelly
