KBShimmer: Unicorn Pee Collection

Press Sample


Greetings, dear readers! Do I have a collection to share with you today! KBShimmer is launching their new Unicorn Pee Collection this morning, and you will want to get your hands on these beauties! Christy, the creative genius behind the brand, has managed to get ahold of the elusive pigment which has been dubbed "unicorn pee" by the nail polish community. This fascinating pigment glows a fiery copper red shade that shifts based on the viewing angles to orange, green and gold. KBShimmer had previously released Let's Slang made from this discontinued pigment while at Polish Con Chicago in 2016; this limited edition shade is the most requested KBShimmer ever! Thanks to KBShimmer's search efforts, Let's Slang is back along with three new shift shades. Let's jump in, starting off with the shade that started it all!

Let's Slang

Let's Slang is a deep midnight blue, boarding on blurple, jelly base with color shifting shimmer.

The formula is smooth and easy to work with, and the colour is phenomenal! It's no wonder that Let's Slang is such a highly requested shade! I have it shown here with three coats to opacity plus KBShimmer's Clearly On Top top coat.

Goal Digger

Goal Digger is a deepened teal leaning green with color shifting shimmer. This polish layers well over your favorite cream, in 2 coats has a vibrant teal color, and in 3 coats it takes on a deep forest green shade.

I love a good teal polish, and I am thrilled to see it with the magical unicorn pee pigment! I applied three easy coats to opacity plus Clearly On Top top coat. I also really love the lighter colour with two coats, so I'd suggest layering it over a cream if you want to avoid visible nail line while using fewer coats.

So Jelly

So Jelly is a deepened fuchsia leaning purple jelly with color shifting shimmer. This polish layers well over your favorite cream, in 2 coats has a vibrant pink ruby color, and in 3 coats it takes on a deep garnet shade.

I love the rich red shade of garnets so I naturally had to wear So Jelly at three coats to show this stunning colour! My nail line was no longer visible at three coats, and in true KBShimmer fashion, the formula was perfection! I did enjoy the rich pink version as well although I did still have visible nail line; layering over a base shade will bypass this issue easily.

You Dew You
Layered over Chai-huahua and How You Dune?

Dubbed Unicorn Pee in the nail polish community, this stunning 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 cream colors. Try it over Low And Be Bold or Eclipse for a unicorn worth manicure.

Rather than layering over a rich blue or black cream, I wanted to see how You Dew You would play with other shades. I opted to layer it over KBShimmer's Chai-huahua and How You Dune?, and I am loving these combinations! This topper adds a glorious fiery touch to both base shades, and I suspect it would look amazing over just about anything! I used a single coat of You Dew You over my cream base and added KBShimmer's Clearly On Top top coat for these photos.

The Unicorn Pee Collection will be launching today, Monday, September 4th at 9am EST at www.KBShimmer.com. These polishes will retail at $12 each. Even though KBShimmer is not planning to limit the number of bottles purchased, they reserve the right to hold onto orders of more than 5 bottles of each colour to ensure they have enough stock. KBShimmer does not ship outside the US, but international customers can still get ahold of these beauties: these polishes will also be available for purchase from Harlow & Co and Color4Nails.

Are you as excited as I am to see a collection using the beautiful "unicorn pee" pigment? Which shade are you loving the most? What colours would you like to layer You Dew You over? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
XO!
