Good morning lovelies! Taking a moment to sit down and enjoy a cup o' Joe, do a little online shopping, get ready for kids sports and that's right...blog! So I'm popping in with a post to share some gorgeous new KBShimmers that will be dropping on 3/15! There are actually 2 parts to the collection launching on this day, but I decided to separate them out so you weren't overwhelmed with a zillion pictures. I picked up the Spring collection first. Hullo pretties! This set will please those that love crellies, holos and glitter! So let's not dilly dally about and let's jump right in!
Alright alright, up first I have Hello Dahlia, a gorgeous dusty peach crelly full of micro holo dust and golden flakies. This beauty is base on the Pantone Spring/Summer 2016 shade Peach Echo. Formula was just the slightest bit patchy/streaky. But the formula was easy to work with. I used 3 coats to get full coverage and even out the layers. I finished with a layer of topcoat.
Prints Charming (what an adorable name) is a white crelly polish with fuchsia, turquoise and sapphire glitters. I love how the colors pop against the clean base! Formula and application were both top notch, no issues to mention. I used 3 coats for almost full coverage, and finished with a layer of topcoat.
I Wet My Plants (oh goodness, this is a hilarious name), is a pastel periwinkle crelly with pink, sapphire, silver and purple glitters. This one is based on Pantone Spring/Summer 2016 shade Serenity. I love the take on this Pantone color, very unique and original. The formula and application were both fabulous. I used 3 coats for full coverage and finished with topcoat.
Pools Paradise is a lightened green leaning aqua full of neon pink, periwinkle and aqua glitters. This one is base on Pantone Spring/Summer 2016 shade Limpet Shell. I did think the glitters were a bit "thick" in this one so you definitely want a good topcoat to ensure everything is nice and smooth. Aside from that there are no issues with the formula or application. I used 3 coats and topped it with topcoat.
Moving along to the holos, this is Purr-fectly Paw-some. It's part of the new Ultra Flair line and is described as a pastel blue linear holo with steel grey and lavender undertones. I find this shade very soothing and the uber linear holo is totally gorgeous. Formula and application were purr-fect. I used 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.
The other holo in the collection is Peony Pincher, another Ultra Flair holo. This one is a pastel pink with lavender undertones. I love this shade or pink! Not in your face, not like a Barbie. Just a nice, wearable shade of pink. Formula and application were stellar. I only needed 1 coat for full coverage and no topcoat.
Rounding out the collection is my favorite from the Spring 2016 set. Upside Round is a glitter topper that adds a punch of color and fun to your mani. The glitters are all neon shades and different sized circles. I have seen it over white (check out Cosmetic Sanctuary's swatch of it over white in her review HERE) and when layered over a dark base, like I did you get a different look. The glitters seem darker and more vibrant. I used 1 coat on top of KBShimmer Soul Deep. I was very pleased with the glitter payoff. The glitters came out early and spread well on my nails. I finished with topcoat.
