And, now for the swatches and review of The Grape Beyond and Would Jubilee It?
The Grape Beyond is a medium purple matte with teal shimmer (which really made me ooh and aah as I swatched it) – my son was TRYING to help me paint my nails, as he always does, but once the nail was dry, he examined it in his little hands and smiled at me showing all his little teefies. I think he likes it, too! 😀
If you’re a purple lover, too, you will also show all your teefies at this beautiful matte. I am a SUCKER for crèmes/mattes with hidden unusual shimmer – this was no exception at all! Unbelievable!! The Grape Beyond dries matte, so you have to work quickly. The first coat will appear sheer and streaky, but the 2nd coat gives it the perfect opacity!
Once it was topped off with KBShimmer’s own 2-free top coat, Clearly On Top, it looked absolutely gorgeous!!
Look at that shimmer – ooh and aahh!!!
The glitter top coat (the other half of the duo), Would Jubilee It? (great name, by the way!) is filled with Christy Rose’s (the owner and creator of KBShimmer) favorite glitters – what a great selection she has, too! This looked STUNNING!!!!! (Here is 1 coat over The Grape Beyond, which I topped off with Clearly on Top for good measure!) – there was no dabbing required – I love that about KBShimmer’s glitters, they pretty much paint themselves.
What a great duo for celebrating the 5 years of KBShimmer’s existence – and here’s to many, many more!!!!
Don’t forget about the 20% sale going on and the shipping deals starting on the 15th!
