Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is a brand new polish from KBShimmer, Hard To Empress. I think this is an add-on to the new Wanderlust Collection. This was just released last Friday, which was when I ordered it. If you don’t want to wait around for your nail mail, order from KBShimmer! They are on top of their game! I ordered on Friday and the polish was delivered on Monday. Can’t beat that shipping!! You can find KBShimmer HERE. I am not affiliated.
Hard To Empress is described as, “a purple nail polish with unicorn pee shimmer, and unicorn flakes that shift from a vibrant fuchsia to a deep indigo, for a jelly polish meant to impress”. Yes, you read that right!! This polish has some of the original “Unicorn Pee” shifting shimmer. For that reason it is a Limited Edition so don’t wait to order if you love it!
This has an excellent formula! The “UP” pigment shifts from red to green to gold. I didn’t see the green shift on my nails, but I did see it in the bottle. I was able to catch the gold shift on my nails out in the sun. I love the flakies in this one! They shift color and really stand out in the royal purple jelly base! I used two coats plus topcoat. I love this!!!
