September Polish Pick Up: KBShimmer Light My Fire

Greetings and Nailutations!

*Press sample*
Today I am sharing the second contribution from KBShimmer for Polish Pick Up!  The theme this month is Halloween and KBShimmer was inspired by bonfires in the fall.  Just thinking of bonfires makes me smile - being in a hoodie, sitting in a lawn chair, and roasting a marshmallow.

Let's get to more details!

Name: Light My Fire (Magnetic Polish)
Cap: No Cap
Price: $10
Brand Description:  blackened base filled with multichrome flakes that shift between orange, red, gold, and copper.  The magnetic pigment shows off a similar spectrum with rusty oranges, golden yellows and burning red tones.  And to top it off a scattering of micro holo flakies adds a hint of sparkle.

The magnetic properties of Light My Fire create such an amazing "magnetic wink".  (That is what I call it.)  This is the 2nd magnetic polish that I have ever used and I think I might be hooked.  Photos show 1 thick coat with glossy top coat.  The macro really shows off those holo flakes!

I didn't know this was a magnetic polish so I originally swatched it without using a magnet and the multichrome shift was so strong.  Photos show 2 coats with glossy top coat.

As a reminder, if you are using magnetic polish for the first time, you will want to paint a thicker coat on and hold your magnet for 10-20 seconds over your nail - paint 1 nail at a time.  After you let that dry, when you top coat, hold the magnet over again.  The longer you hold your magnet, the tighter the "magnetic wink."

How about some fun nail art?

Is Light My Fire on your wish list?

Loves:  OMGoodness where do I start!  I love this polish!  Look at that "magnetic wink!"  It's amazing!  I can't get over the macro!!

Wishes: Well the obvious wish is that I wish I would have tried magnetic polishes sooner - I feel like I am late to the game.

As a reminder - all Polish/Indie Pick Up products can be purchase on their website September 4th - 7th.  Everything is $3 flat rate shipping.  Join their Facebook Group to find out all the details!
