Hey, everyone! When I swatched the newest KBShimmer summer collection, I mentioned that I’d also be trying out the new nail vinyls (press release) as well! The collection was released on Friday, so these are finally available to purchase, yay! Let’s get to it!
I was sent the stripe, chevron, stars and arrow designs to try out- altogether there are currently 6 varieties to purchase. Each nail vinyl sheet retails for $5. I’ve only used one decal before and these were super easy to use!!

I began with two coats of KBShimmer Mint-al Vacation. Once dry, I then applied the chevron decals on my middle and ring fingers. The decals were easy to peel off of the backing and to carefully place on the nail. Over them, I applied a coat of KBShimmer Eclipse (previously swatched here). I finished everything up with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.
I will note, they are not kidding when they say wait until your base coat is absolutely dry!! I waited a full hour on these and it worked super well. On my cinderella hand I got impatient and tried after 20 minutes since it was dry to the touch annnd ended up with an inadvertent negative space mani when all of the base polish came off with the decal, whoops.
What do you think of my design? Are you planning to try out nail vinyls from KBShimmer? What designs do you want to see from her in the future (I’d love mermaid/fish scales!) Let me know in the comments!
