KBShimmer- Maybe Navy [Swatch]

Here's KBShimmer- Maybe Navy from the Winter 2013 collection! (My very first KBShimmer swatch- hooray!)

Maybe Navy is a multichrome that consists of micro-flake, shifty glitters that appear sometimes pink, yellow, green, purple, and blue- depending on the viewing angle.

Artificial light, three coats:

Window-filtered daylight:

Outside, shade:

Unfortunately, we didn't get any sun for the entire three days I wore this, so I don't have sun pics, which is a shame, but I do have a macro shot of the finish:

It's fairly complex up close! All those scrumptious flakes.....mmmyes.

Formula: It's slightly sheer, and the consistency is on the medium-thin side, but glides onto the nail and is pretty easy to control.   This builds nicely, and I think two coats will be sufficient for most.  I used three coats just to be safe with the flash.  Nice formula!
