KBShimmer pink Sugar Sugar Scrub  Pink Sugar Moisturizing Nail Polish Remover review on BeautyJudy

I have been a long-time fan of KBShimmer nail polish, but I actually hadn’t tried any of their other hand/body products, or any of the brand’s treatments, until the last couple months!

I received samples of four items to try, including the brand’s cuticle oil, which I reviewed here if you’re interested!

Check out what I’ve discovered so far!

KBShimmer Moisturizing Nail Polish Remover

KBShimmer Pink Sugar Moisturizing Nail Polish Remover review on BeautyJudy

I love a nail polish remover that smells nice and makes quick work of glitter nail polish, and I don’t know too many out there that remove glitter but smell nice!

KBShimmer Moisturizing Nail Polish Remover, scented in the brand’s signature Pink Sugar scent, is one! Glitter is glitter but because this is acetone-based, it works a bit quicker in the removal process!

However, the bonus of this? Instead of leaving behind the dry, sometimes white residue that acetone typically leaves behind on me, it felt moisturizing and my skin and nails responded to it much the way they do to Zoya Remove +. I don’t see this listed on the KBShimmer website right now, but I hope they bring it back, I would totally feel comfortable soaking cotton balls in this, and adhering them to my fingers with foil to remove glitter!!!

KBShimmer Pink Sugar Sugar Scrub

I love pampering my hands, especially after a swatchfest!

This scrub actually comes in a bunch of scents right now – Peppermint, Raspberry Vanilla, Spiced Pumpkin, Southern Belle, Citrus Blast, Lemongrass, Paradise, Relaxation, Lavender, Lilac and Vanilla.

Pink Sugar Scrub, though, is made up of notes of sweet cotton candy, lemon, caramel and raspberry, fused together with an undertone of a musk, according to the brand website. In addition to sugar, it includes pink jojoba beads.

The scrub is a very fine grit, and felt good to me. Here’s my hand, mid-scrub:

It doesn’t foam up, but it sloughs off dead skin and truly does leave behind a moisturized feeling on your hands. Of course, that’s hard to capture but here’s my try:

The scrub is $10 for 9 oz., and a little bit goes a long way!

Here’s my nails, post remover and scrub; my cuticles didn’t even need oil!:

KBShimmer Clearly on Top Quick Dry Nail Polish Top Coat

KBShimmer Clearly on Top top coat review on BeautyJudy

Since I wrote about my top five favorite top coats in 2012, I’ve discovered a lot of new brands and have a lot of new Holy Grail top coats!

One of them is KBShimmer Clearly on Top. I can rely on this bad boy to dry my polish quickly, with shine, and hold everything together for at least four or five days (which is usually my max…for a mani to last even that long, it’s special to me!).

It’s great to use in stamping, too.

I’ve already refilled the .5 fl oz. bottle since I first started using it in July.

Clearly on Top retails for $5.50 for a .5 fl oz bottle. The larger 2 oz bottle is not currently listed on the website.

SO what do you think of these products? Have you tried any of them? I am going to have to buy one of the other scrub scents, and try a soap, too!
