KBShimmer Unicorn Pee Polishes!

KBShimmer Unicorn Pee Nail Polish 2017 swatches and review on BeautyJudy

You need to open up a new browser page, and go to KBShimmer.com. Because these Unicorn Pee polishes have launched today, September 4, but there’s only a limited amount, and you do NOT want to miss them!

This also marks the introduction of a five-free formula for the brand!

Let’s get to the pics because really, that’s where it’s at…

Let’s Slang

Let’s Slang is a jelly polish described as a deep midnight blue bordering on blurple with color shifting shimmer. Let’s Slang is a polish that I was bummed to miss out on – it was a Polish Con 2016 exclusive in Chicago. Since KBShimmer was able to get its hands on the hard-to-find magical pigment to make this polish, they have re-released it! I used three coats here for optimal opacity.

Goal Digger

Goal Digger is described as a jelly polish in a deepened teal leaning green hue with color-shifting shimmer. According to KBShimmer, “This polish layers well over your favorite creme, in two coats has a vibrant teal color, and in three coats it takes on a deep forest green shade.” I preferred three coats here, and this is my favorite of the bunch. I don’t know if I have anything like this in my collection. It’s stunning!

So Jelly

So Jelly is described as a jelly polish in a deepened fuchsia leaning purple hue with color-shifting shimmer. KBShimmer says this polish will also layer well over your favorite creme and in two coats has a vibrant pink ruby color, while in three coats it takes on a deep garnet shade. Again, I preferred this one in three coats as shown above. It’s so glowy and stunning on its own!

You Dew You

I don’t have any pics of You Dew You on its own, because it’s much more fun OVER polishes! KBShimmer says, “Dubbed Unicorn Pee in the nail polish community, this stunning this polish has a shimmer that glows a fiery copper red color, shifting based on view angles to orange, green and gold. You Dew You contains this magical pigment in a clear base, for layering over your favorite creme colors. Try it over Low And Be Bold or Eclipse.”

I tried it over all the above polishes first, then I put it over three other polishes in my collection! Check it out:

You Dew You over So Jelly:

These polishes are gorgeous, and I can see myself using You Dew You over everything – so much so that I bought a back-up bottle!

The jelly polishes are thicker to work with than cremes, and I found myself spending a lot of time on clean-up because my cuticles are recovering from a bit of an allergy issue with gel polish, and the cuticles are a little rugged.

Overall, these are gorgeous polishes to add to your collection and I didn’t notice anything different using the five-free formula vs. the brands former formula. I’m excited that they’ve taken this step, especially since being pregnant, I’m even trying to avoid formaldehyde resin where I can.

These polishes are not going to last long, but they are available here for $12 a piece.

Do you like any of these? Did you or will you be picking any up?! Goal Digger is my FAV of this bunch, and I can’t wait to see all the manis pop up on Instagram when people start creating with their new color-shifting KBShimmers!

  • Stacie Wacie

    Ohh, your swatches are gorgeous. I totally missed out on these — been on a no-buy — and I’m so sad.

    • BeautyJudy

      Oh no, I’m sorry about the no-buy!!! Maybe you will be able to trade or purchase later, you never know!!

  • Camilla Evaline

    One of the best, high quality nail polishes I’ve ever used.

    I’ve NEVER used KBShimmer nail polish that looks this good with so few coats.

    The product comes with the recommendation of using bottom and top coats along with it. My nails did not chip at all unless scrubbing my hair viciously in the shower, and I didn’t even use top coat. I can’t wait to actually put top coat on over it.

    Even my boyfriend noticed and loved my nails. Over SKYPE.

    • BeautyJudy

      lol I love that he noticed over Skype! KBS is the best!

  • marciaf

    I’m mad at myself for not buying You Dew You and might need to make a second order.

    • BeautyJudy

      I ordered a bckup, so excited! Transform alllll the things!

  • FabZilla_Kath

    I smile whenever I read unicorn pee. Clever naming!

    • BeautyJudy

      It is so funny. When Mike proposed to me, he told me he loved me like unicorn pee (he tried to involve my blogging into the proposal) it was awesome lol

  • http://www.polishgalore.com/ PolishGalore

    Omg, I think I bought the original at PolishCon Chicago! Now I have to go rummage through my box of polish that still isn’t in my spreadsheet!

    • http://www.polishgalore.com/ PolishGalore

      I do own it!!! I’m so excited.

      • BeautyJudy

        Yay!!! Lol

  • Kristi Vasquez

    I picked these bad boys up yesterday at 6am! 🙂 Can’t wait to get them!

    • BeautyJudy

      Woooot!!

  • http://polishedlifting.com Courtney B

    This makes me really nervous about the jellies =/. I just purchased them yesterday.

    • BeautyJudy

      Don’t be nervous! As I explained, my cuticles are a bit rough, and I found it was hard for me to paint neatly with the polishes and clean-up was a pain because of it. That made the formula harder for me to work with. Jellies are obviously a different consistency than other finishes, like cremes,

  • Ehmkay Nails

    I found the jelly formulas not thick at all! Weird! You got great pictures of the shift!

    • BeautyJudy

      SO strange! My package sat outside overnight as I was away when it arrived, perhaps the weather played tricks with them. As I mentioned, my clean-up issues and what made them a little bit more “work” for me was the fact that my cuticles are in a rough spot right now :/

  • Jen Sky Walker

    You Dew You looks glorious over everything! I’m in love with this collection!

    • BeautyJudy

      I know! I love it!

  • Naked Without Polish

    You captured Goal Digger flawlessly!

    • BeautyJudy

      Thank you!
