Greetings, expensive readers! It has been a sizzling minute since I’ve posted on the weblog, however I actually simply wanted the previous two months away. I really feel like I’ve misplaced a lot time over the previous yr the place I’ve wanted to concentrate on my well being points and restoration, first from COVID and its devastating aftereffects after which from my knee damage and subsequent surgical procedure. As you all know, when it rains, it pours, and that it did this yr as my brother handed away immediately and unexpectedly. Whereas I had been in a position to push via a few of my bodily limitations, albeit slowly, it was my brother’s passing that in the end broke me. Proper now I am taking issues in the future at a time, and as we speak which means getting a weblog publish up! Let’s do that!
With The Band
Flock, gaggle, flamboyance, herd; teams of birds have attention-grabbing names. One which I discover most amusing is the time period for a bunch of pigeons: a band! I don’t know if that got here from the banding of homing pigeons, however I simply preserve imagining pigeons saying, “I’m with the band,” and I chuckle. One of the crucial lovely pigeons is the Nicobar pigeon, the closest residing relative to the now-extinct dodo. Deep blue in colour with vibrant plumage that shines in iridescent blues, coppers, and greens, the Nicobar pigeon sports activities a rainbow of metallic-like feathers.
With The Band is a deep, navy blue jelly nail polish. Daring color-shifting flakes mimic the feathers of the Nicobar pigeon, with hues of purple, orange, yellow, and inexperienced exhibiting as you alter your viewing angle. At sure angles, hints of aqua come out to play, particularly in decrease lighting, which will even exhibit the flakes finest. This jelly shade builds simply in 2 coats, however longer nails could desire 3.
Y’all, after I first heard what impressed this polish, I assumed Christy, the proprietor of the model, had misplaced her thoughts. We have been combating pigeons which have taken up roost at our entrance porch since earlier than we moved into our home right here in Arizona; for sure, i do not assume too fondly of those birds. Nonetheless, I’ve fallen in love with so many lovely KBShimmer shades, and I simply needed to see this magnificence in particular person. Even having an thought of what to anticipate primarily based on the outline, I used to be nonetheless blown away after I noticed this polish in particular person.
With The Band is unbelievable, and in true KBShimmer trend, it applies like a dream. The stray flake at nail ideas might be pushed again on simply or just eliminated, and a bit of dab right here and there can add flakes in spots the place you may want a bit of extra vibrant pizzazz. I am a sucker for jelly polish on the whole, and this one is sort of breathtaking. I’ve used three coats right here plus KBShimmer’s Clearly On High prime coat for a clean and glossy end.
Restoration Drops Polish Thinner
I am positive you know the way it goes- you are prepared to use your favourite nail polish, however whenever you open it and pull out the comb *gasp* the components is thick and goopy since you did not shut the bottle tightly sufficient. Fortunately, KBShimmer has come to the rescue with their new Restoration Drops Polish Thinner! With as few as a number of drops, your nail polish might be good as new and able to use as a result of everyone knows by now we must always NOT be placing acetone in our bottles to skinny it down. This polish thinner ships with an everyday flat screw cap along with the dropper cap. The dropper cap doesn’t near a decent seal so you’ll want to save the flat cap and use that for storage. This is not going to solely stop this thinner from evaporating, however from making a multitude when your cat deliberately knocks it over whereas wanting round in your desk.
Not solely have I not been running a blog these days, I’ve principally lived with bare nails the previous two months. Because of this, my prime coat, which I normally undergo moderately shortly, has gotten thick and goopy: not precisely the best components. A number of drops of the Restoration Drops Polish Thinner has restored it again to its common viscosity and it is able to go!
