Here’s a beautiful holographic polish from KB Shimmer, the outstandingly gorgeous and chameleon-like Rust No One, that arrived in a recent order of post-Christmas nail mail. This is one of those polishes that on first, out-of-the-box glance, I did not like. It looked not one bit like its picture on the KB Shimmer website, and I worried about the utility of a rusty orange polish beyond the already-so-over Fall and Halloween seasons.
But as is often the case, I was wrong (and not afraid to admit it)! Because on the nail, Rust No One is an unexpectedly beautiful and complex holo that can look like four unique polishes at once depending on the quality of the light and the angle of your hand. “Great, so four different ways for your fingernails to look rusty?” you may be thinking to yourself. Not at all, as my initial assessment of Rust No One’s colour was just plain wrong. This polish actually has a beautiful, very pronounced flash of fuchsia shimmer that you can see running right up through the middle of the bottle (that effect is also sometimes referred to as a flame or a flare) that can make Rust No One swing the colour gamut from pinky-coral to pumpkin orange and back again. And as always – a fact I sometimes forget because KB Shimmer is just so consistently on-the-mark – application was a breeze in two even coats and it wore beautifully. Finally, what of the holo effect? Spectacular. Rust No One is absolutely one of those polishes you’ll find yourself gawking at open-mouthed as you bust out your very best spirit fingers whilst leaping in and out of three different light sources. As you do. Just fantastic stuff – a big, big recommendation for this unique beauty.
