What better way to welcome in Autumn than by using You Autumn Know by KB Shimmer. I got this polish for Christmas after wanting it for a year. This is the polish that made me look into KB Shimmer as a brand, as I needed to know who made such a pretty polish. I have since fallen in love with many of crellys that KB Shimmer make.

KB Shimmer You Autumn Know is a white crelly with a gold, orange and fuschia glitters. The majority of glitters are hexes but there are also some bar glitters in there that bring the polish together. I needed three coats to get opacity as the white has to be sheer enough for the layers of glitters to peep through. Application was really easy, I didn’t need to do much dabbing or glitter placement. One coat of KB Shimmer Clearly On Top made the polish smooth and shiny. You Autumn Know has to be one of my all time favourite polishes.

I’ve been meaning to use these lovely Born Pretty Store Maple leaves since they sent them out to me, but my health and creativity went down the drain with the stress from my mums emergency operation and I haven’t recovered yet. I must have swatched 20 polishes on wheels to see which one I liked best with the gold leaves. There’s a surprising amount of indie polishes that they look good with. The glitters come in their own little screw top container so you don’t need to worry about stuffing around with a plastic bag and getting glitter everywhere. I wanted the leaves to stick to the nail but still have the 3D effect so I used a fresh coat of topcoat and placed the leaves on using a rhinestone picker. Next time I will use nail glue to stick them on or seal them in with top coat as they didn’t last long using just topcoat as an anchor. You can use my code ALAX31 at checkout to get 10% off your Born Pretty Store order.
