Hey everyone! I sure hope it’s nice and warm where you’re at, now that we’re a whole month out of spring! Today I’ve got KBShimmer’s Spring 2015 collection on deck.
Blue-d Lines (two coats): light blue holographic
Blush Money (two coats): pink scattered holographic
Cool Hand Cuke (two coats): pale mint jelly with blue, yellow and fuchsia glitter
Eyes White Open (two coats): stark white crème
Funky Cold Patina (two coats): blue and gold glitter in a turquoise base
I’m So Sweet Pea (two coats): teal, purple and white glitter in a white jelly base
Ins And Sprouts (two coats): yellow-green holographic
Meow Or Never (two coats): blue, purple and white glitter in a white jelly base
Sweet Egg-scape (two coats): red, white, blue and pink glitter in a pink base
Thistle Be The Day (two coats): lilac holographic
To Peach His Own (two coats): gold, green, pink and purple glitter in a peach base
Wind Swarm (two coats): gold, purple and pink glitter in a blue base
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.
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.
