It’s been quite a while since I last put a swatch up on the blog, I’ve still been buying polishes here and there but haven’t bothered with any swatching, but I recently bought a couple of polishes that I wanted to share.
This one is KBShimmer Stark Raven Mad, it is a Charcoal Black polish with holo throughout.
Application was pretty perfect, you can get away with 2 coats but I used 3 thin coats in these photos.
Dry time is relatively quick even on the 3rd coat and is pretty much on par with other polish brands.
Clean up is so easy, any polish that was on my skin peeled off in one piece.
I did not apply a top coat, the polish dried to a glossy, smooth finish and top coat was not necessary.
Even without direct sunlight, the holo still peeks out a little bit, but other than that, in the shade, it looks like a glossy black polish with a silver shimmer.
I bought this from Harlow&Co for $9 CAD which works out at about £5 at the moment, yes you have to pay postage on top of it, but it isn’t that much, I bought this along with another bottle (which you will see soon) and the postage cost altogether was $9.37 (about £5.21), so for both beautiful bottles of polish, the entire order came to about £15.44.
Postage time was about a week this time, I have bought from Harlow&Co before and have never waited more than 2 weeks for my stuff to arrive, I highly recommend them if you are looking for new brands to try that can’t be found in the UK.
