KBShimmer Don't Teal Anyone Swatches & Review

Happy Monday everyone! Today I am returning to bright summery colours with my very first KBShimmer to show you, Don't Teal Anyone.  That also means that I got to fight with my camera in my attempts to capture the teal base properly.  I got pretty close, but to the eye the polish leans a little bit more towards green than in looks in the photos.  Don't Teal Anyone is a teal crelly base packed with gold, teal, blue, navy and fuchsia hexes in several sizes, and micro fuchsia bars.

I will admit that I didn't realize there was any bar glitter in this polish until I looked at my macro photo.  It is very subtle.  This polish goes opaque in three thin coats.  I only used two and in my indoor lighting it looked opaque, but once I got outside to take the photos I noticed that my nails tips were still showing through a tiny bit.

Photos show two coats of Don't Teal Anyone with one coat of Gelous in natural sunlight.  The formulas on the polish was great.  I didn't need to do any dabbing to get the various glitters evenly distributed over my nail and it dried as smoothly as glitter packed polish can.  In the future I will just use three coats instead of two so that it's 100% opaque.  If you'd like a bottle of your very own check out the KBShimmer website at https://www.kbshimmer.com.  If you're outside of the US you can purchase KBShimmer polishes from Harlow & Co.  I really love this polish.  It's just so bright and playful... and bonus, it's teal.  You can never go wrong with teal.
