KBShimmer Summer Collection - Select Swatches

Press Sample

Hello Loves!  Today is the big day - the release date for 12 more gorgeous shades in the KBShimmer line!  I have 6 of the 12 to show you today, and I think you're going to like what you see.

Mixed Peelings is an awesome, off white base packed with pink, yellow and green neon glitters of varying sizes.  As with all of the KBShimmer polishes I've tried, this one applies smoothly.  However, I did have to do a little fishing to get a good mix of the glitters, but nothing too difficult.  I just swirled the brush around in the bottle between nails.  The swatch below is 2 coats of Mixed Peelings over a white gel polish base.

Peak My Interest is a pink crelly base that is packed with white triangle glitters as well as multiple sizes of hex glitters in pink and dark aqua.  I didn't have to fish at all with this one, though I did need to position some of the triangle pieces once they were on the nail.  Below is three coats, though you could easily get away with two.

Sea You Around is a polish that I just can't resist!  This emerald green jelly base is loaded with fuchsia and silver circles and light blue hexes and squares.  But that's only half of it!  It also has fuchsia micro slivers and tons of sparkle.  This one applied like a dream.  No fishing or glitter placement!  Sadly, my camera refused to capture all of it's glory.  The base is much deeper than it appears here with a touch of teal.  I swatched three coats as I found that the jelly base left a good bit of visible nail line with only two coats.

Mint-al Vacation is a gorgeous, blue leaning mint holo.  The holo in this one is subtle in most lighting.  I absolutely adore it!  This may be my new favorite mint shade.  Application was very nice and it is opaque in 2-3 coats (depending on the thickness of your coats, of course).

Red, White and Blue-tiful is a limited edition glitter top coat that is a must have for the 4th of July!  The clear base is loaded with red, holographic blue and holographic silver stars.  It also has fine red, blue and silver glitters and shimmer.  I can't even tell you how much I love this topper!  I had no trouble with the glitters at all - there are so many of them packed into this little bottle, it's impossible to pull the brush straight out without getting a good mix of stars and glitter.  I have swatched it here as one coat over a white gel polish base.

Finally, Happily Ever Aster is a beautiful glitter topper made up of multiple sizes of purple, lavender, white and light aqua hex glitters in a shimmery base.  Like Red, White and Blue-tiful, this baby is packed with glitter.  I tried it over several different colors, but I fell in love when I swatched one coat over a white gel polish base. The white glitters are lost over the white base, but the aqua and purple glitters simply pop!
