SELFie on the Shelfie

Selfie Bottle

Actually, I don’t go in for that Elf on the Shelf business.  If some mischief-making little gnome wants to bugger around my house after hours, the least he can do is leave the fun decorating stuff to me and instead run a couple of loads of laundry and maybe clean the litter box.  Jerk.

Selfies are also pretty awful.  But then again, I am an Old and I still don’t understand what “on fleek” means.

But!  This super fun, wonderfully festive polish, KB Shimmer’s sELFie, is, trendy name notwithstanding, AWESOME.  Every year I quite optimistically purchase a can’t-be-mistaken-for-any-other-season-but-Christmas polish (your basic tree in a bottle) and every year I’m disappointed.  KB’s offering from last year’s holiday collection was dark and murky, the total antithesis of a bright and shiny Christmas tree, and the less we say about the polish I used in one of my ugliest – and most popular – manicures, the better.

But KB’s hit it out of the park with sELFie, a beautiful – and beautifully made – green holographic glitter sprinkled with red, blue, purple and gold hexes.  It is SO Christmas – like you’re painting your nails with crushed ornaments. Which, were this any other all-glitter polish, is exactly how application would go – Snag City.  But sELFie is that rare polish that is the absolute perfect mix of base and glitter, applying smoothly and evenly. You could certainly use this lacquer as a one-coat glitter topper over a favourite festive polish, but I got it to full, glorious opacity in two and a smidge coats (two regular coats and a bit of touching up, mostly right at the tips of my nails.)

Selfie Fingers Straight On

Oddly enough, I don’t tend to wear a lot of nail polish in my day to day life, but I know sELFie is going to be getting a lot of play on my fingertips this season – it’s the perfect holiday mani!  As always, if you also find this polish divine, you can find it and its collection mates at both KB Shimmer and Harlow & Co.
