Have you ever been properly startled by a glow in the dark polish? Yeah…uh…me neither! I enjoy the fun of interactive polishes, even when they cause you to squeal in a closet. This happened to a friend once. KB Shimmer has a stunner of a glow in the dark for this round of the Polish Pick Up. Before I start dimming the lights and putting on the mood music, here’s a quick catch up on what Polish Pick Up is all about.
Polish Pickup is a fun Facebook Group where members submit and vote for one theme for the month. Afterward, indie makers create a polish or product based on the decided theme. Members can make purchases through the Polish Pickup website during the four-day shopping window, where you can pick as little or as many items as you desire. The flat rate shipping price of US $3.00/CAD $5.00 is the cherry on top. Evidenced by its rapid growth, PPU is a very clever concept that has introduced me to many new indie brands, as well as given a wider stage for smaller, well-loved ones.
Hubble’d Together starts off with a teal-leaning mint jelly base, in which holographic sparkles and unicorn flakes dance-off in the ultimate squish fest. The addition of glow powder gives this polish a green neon glow in darkness. Here, I’m wearing three coats, but I could have stopped at two. I topped with a glossy topcoat.
Capturing glow in the dark photos is not my strongest point, but it’s clear that the glow magic is not hampered by my skill…or lack thereof. Hint: if you can’t catch some sun, you can pop your hands under a UV nail lamp to charge to glow powder.

Only good things to report here; the consistency and quality are what we’ve come to know and expect of KB Shimmer. The unicorn flakes are well behaved, laying nice and proper. Also, If thoughts of unicorns and mermaids make you fan yourself, then this shade is right up your alley!
