KBShimmer is at it again with another fun collection for Spring! We all love KBShimmer collections. They are large and full of tried and true formulas as well as some fun new treats. This spring, they have broken the collection into two parts: The Spring Collection and the Mega Flame Collection. Today, I have the Spring Collection to share with you which consists of 7 polishes in a variety of formulas and finishes. Let's take a look at these babies!
Let's start with my favor of the bunch, "Hello Dahlia". This is a dusty peach creme packed with holographic microshimmer and microflakies. Of course, this is my fave. It orange and shimmery. This did have the trickiest formula all off of these shades though. It was a little thick and a little streaky but the end results is awesome. I did three coats here topped with Clearly On Top. Love Love Love!
Next, we have two linear holographics. "Peony Pincher" is a pinkish/purple polish with a strong linear holo shimmer. Rainbows everywhere! I am having a hard time describing the color of this shade. Maybe iris or deep lilac? Either way, it's pretty and has a great formula. This is two coats topped with Clearly On Top. It is quite opaque and I was almost happy with one coat.
The other linear holographic in the collection is "Purr-fectly Paw-some". It is also very opaque and applies like a dream. It is a medium lapis blue with a slight dusty quality. The holo is super strong as well. This is two coats with Clearly On Top on top.
Now, let's take a look at the crellies. KBShimmer is known for their amazing crelly formula. "I Wet My Plants" is a dusty periwinkle crelly with a mix of silver, purple and salmon hexes in various small sizes. The formula was very nice and I didn't have to mess around with the glitters. This was two good coats with Clearly On Top top coat.
"Prints Charming" is a my favorite crelly in this mix. I haven't been digging crelly with glitter polishes for a while now. But KBShimmer brings me back to my indie polish lover roots with thier amazing formulas. This is a white crelly base packed with jewel toned metallic hexes in purple, pink and blue. It applies so smoothly and the glitters even out so nicely on the nail. This was two thicker coats with Clearly On Top. It would also look great with three thin coats or one coat over a white base.
"Pools Paradise" is an aqua crelly with a nice subtle shimmer and a mix of small hexes in pink, periwinkle and aqua with a sprinkling of larger translucent hexes. The base is a little more opaque on this one and covers up the glitters. But the formula was still good. This was three thin coats with Clearly On Top.
"Upside Round" is the only glitter topper in this collection. It is a mix of semi-transparent neon dot glitters with a sprinkling of red microglitters in a clear base. This think is packed with glitter! You get a top of dots on the brush, so using the dabbing method it best. This was 3/4 of a coat dabbed over white and topped with Clearly On Top.
The KBShimmer Spring 2016 Collection is available now! These all go for $9.25 each and there are a ton of other goodies to pick up from the KBShimmer site. My faves are Hello Dahlia and Prints Charming. Which ones are you going to be picking up? Stay tuned fro the second half of the spring collection, Mega Flame, tomorrow!
