KBShimmer All The Bright Moves; Summer 2017

Morning beauties.  With Easter behind us it feels like we are all ready for the hot Summer weather to start up.  Really though, this has been such a long, cold, rainy Spring season!  I am looking forward to some sunshine and unbearable hot temperatures.  I won't even complain about it!  KBShimmer is clearly ready for Summer too with these amazing new neon polishes!  The All The Bright Moves collection will be available at Polish Con NY on 4/29 and then online on 5/5.  I've included swatches of How Low Can You Flamingo from the Summer 2016 collection as it is really the perfect companion neon pink to this collection!  It's available now!  So let's jump in and look at some polish!

*press sample*


Love how fun these neon polishes look in this 80s style any pack.  Honestly I own a few of these and as a mom with 3 totally busy kids, it's nice to have free hands sometimes.  So I don't care how dorky I look, I will totally rock a fanny pack! 

I went in rainbow order (except for How Low Can You Flamingo) and have 2 indoor, artificial light pictures, then an outside, indirect natural light/shade picture of each polish. 

The first is Color Me Rad.  It's a neon red that's super vibrant and fun.  Does it sear my eyes?  Yes just a little.  Formula and application were great.  Kinda squishy, kinda creamy, full coverage.  I used 3 coats and topcoat.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          




Please Don't Glow Girl is a great traffic cone shade.  You want uber noticeable neon orange? This is your man.  Fantastic shade for Summer outings and parties.  Great formula, just like the last one...creamy and squishy.  But this one is a little more sheer with a very slightly visible nail line.  3 coats plus topcoat.  




All The Bright Moves is a highlighter neon yellow.  This is one radical yellow dudes.  Not only is is a great formula, but check it out!  Opaque too!  Same formula as the last 2, I used 3 layers and topcoat to finish.  




Neon green is usually a crowd favorite and Race Against Slime is sure to please!  It's a totally radioactive color that reminds me of Slimer.  Great formula, still that same squishy, opaqueness as the previous polishes.  I only needed 2 coats for full coverage.  Topped it off with topcoat.  




Double Pog Dare You! is a neon blue creme.  This shade always reminds me of Debbie Gibson.  And yes I did see her in concert...I had front row seats in fact!  Formula and application were great.  I used 2 coats for full coverage and topcoat to finish.  Heavier handed painters could easily get away with 1 coat.  But user beware, this baby is a stainer.  After removing a few more polishes and a light buff it came right off, but don't be surprised if you see blue left over on your cuticles/skin/nails when you remove this one.  




Let's Be Frank, which I assume is a nod to the totally amazing Lisa Frank, is a vibrant violet purple creme.  Though it's still squishy and glossy and creamy so I'm not sure it can truly be labeled as a creme.  The first coat was sheer so I was pleasantly surprised when the 2nd coat totally evened it out and gave me full coverage.  Topcoat to finish up!




How Low Can You Flamingo? is not part of the All The Bright Moves collection.  It's actually from the Summer 2016 collection, but it fits so perfectly with these neons I thought it would be fun to show it off again!  It is available in the Kb shop so you can totally add it to your neon collection if you don't already have it.  It's a neon hot pink (who doesn't love that?!) with a creme-y finish goodness.  I used 3 coats and topcoat.
