Mani Monday: KB Shimmer Rum Me the Right Way

After my experience with the new Essie Neon 2015 collection, I wanted a bright neon on my nails. I wanted a yellow with an incredible formula, not those others that require three coats and a white base. Not to mention they are almost always thin and watery. This year, many indie polish companies have been launching neon collections. Many of these companies have done what I thought was impossible. They have created neon formulas that are creamy and achieve opacity in just two coats! That’s insane! I have placed a number of orders to try these amazing neons. The first of my orders came in the other day and here’s the one I just had to put on first! This pastel neon will make you swoon.

KB Shimmer has always been on my list of polish brands to try. I’ve thirsted over their countless glitters in the past. Only recently have I dipped my toes in the pool of indie polishes and I have become addicted. When the new summer collection came out, I knew I had to place an order ASAP! There were 28 new polishes released in the new Summer 2015 collection. Neons, foils, glitters, duochrome flakies. Prices ranging from $7.50 to $10.75. I picked out my favorites and finalized my checkout in the matter of minutes!

I am most excited about the duochrome flakies I ordered but I’ll save that for another day. I was feeling bright and neon-y at this time so I went ahead and tried my hand at the bright yellow.

Rum Me the Right Way appears to be a pastel lemon yellow on the site. In person, it’s a bright pastel neon. In fact, I’d say it’s more neon than any other pastel neon I own!

I was able to get away with two coats for most of my fingers. This polish dried pretty slow on me and made the second coat troublesome for some nails. If you take your time and wait for this one to dry correctly, you shouldn’t have a problem. I’m pretty impatient and I made it work, so it should be a piece of cake for normal people!

It looks a little dull in the picture above. Indoor lighting gives the illusion that it’s just a normal pastel yellow. In the sunlight is when this lacquer truly comes to life. Lookie here!
