KBShimmer is knocking it out of the park with its magnetic polishes. One of my favorites is the June 2018 Polish Pickup pretty, Insert Coin (see it here!)
The brand’s latest magnetic does NOT disappoint – Wave After Wave, exclusively for Polish Pickup, is complex and stunning!
“Water makes me happy. From the lakes of Minnesota and Wisconsin where I grew up, to the oceans and seas I’ve come to cherish through my travels, it’s no surprise that when searching for artwork to inspire April’s PPU shade, I was drawn to, ‘The Ninth Wave,’ a painting by Ivan Aivazovsky,” said Christy Rose of KBShimmer. “This painting depicts a raging sea, with a legendarily powerful and destructive ‘ninth wave’ approaching shipwreck survivors clinging to the cross-like mast of a ship’s wreckage. The warm tones and dawn’s breaking light give us hope that man will overcome, in spite of the wave’s potential for destruction.”
Wave After Wave possesses a stormy base of gray with subtle lavender tones that play well against the strong coppery red to gold magnetic shimmer. The icing on top is how Wave After Wave is set off by gold flakes, while bits of micro holo flakes add a hint of sparkle.
When used with a magnet, the base’s lavender tones and gold flakes really take center stage. Or, use like a regular polish and watch the coppery shimmer shine.
KBShimmer recommends two coats of this magnetic polish. Check out my swatches. I used a variety of lighting to capture the many facets of this polish!
Here it is with Ott lighting:
The Ott lighting makes the lavender tones pop.
Here it is in dinnertime, sunlight:
The sunlight really shows off the holo and the copper shimmer!
Here she is in the shade:
Aside from my ratchet cuticles (so sorry!), the shade brings out the flakies and the golden tones of shimmer!
When open, shop the PPU website here. Remember – you can only purchase this over the first weekend of April! (April 5-8). If you don’t know – PPU and Indie Polish Pickup are a monthly sale of indie nail polish and beauty-related items that makers create with a community-generated theme. So the polishes and beauty items for sale are limited edition and special!
Wave After Wave will retail for $10.00 each with no cap. What do you think of this magnetic polish?! Is it on your wish list?!
