All of the entries for the year 2020 were completed before March 2020. Most items were bought in, or before, 2019. And so, despite the pandemic where buying makeup is definitely a lower priority, I'm still publishing these posts.
KBShimmer’s All Fired Up

A clear-to-black thermal, similar to Exotic Lacquer’s Tornado Warning…but with added metallic colorshifting flakes. I was hoping to get a color that I could use over other polishes to create manicures that changed color, but without choosing just black and one other shade. This…sort of works for that, but not entirely. I like this as a topper; but because of the red flakies I feel like there are fewer colors I can use this over. The polish itself applies just fine, self-levels very well, and doesn’t bunch up or have a lot of uneven spots. The downside is that I had to use three coats to get a solidly black final effect. Two coats got me a charcoal-y-ish shade.
