The linear holographic polishes (Blue-d Line, Ins and Sprouts and Thistle Be The Day) are even more compelling in sunlight.  Unfortunately, I tend to swatch at night so I caught this baby while out and about at work.

KBShimmer Spring 2015 - Blue-d Lines sunlight

Eyes White Open is the anomaly of the bunch as the lone crème.  This is the perfect white base.  It is VERY pigmented and is almost good in one coat.

The glitters were a bit of a mixed bag.  Some are opaque in two coats (Funky Cold Patina, Sweet Egg-scape, To Peach His Own and Wind Swarm) but the jelly based polishes are still uneven.  I feel like polishes like these tend to look clumpy with three coats, so they’re probably best with a base color if you prefer more opaque coverage.

My overwhelming favorites are the linear holographics:  KBShimmer can rock a mean holographic polish.  The glitter polishes, while not my favorite, have great color combinations and I’ll probably try the jelly bases over an opaque base, especially I’m So Sweet Pea and Meow Or Never.

KBShimmer Spring 2015 collection retails $8.75 per bottle. Purchase by visiting KBShimmer’s site.

    Cool Hand Cuke is my favorite from this collection because it’s kind of different. I really like these holos too! So much sparkle
