KBShimmer 2013 Summer Collection. Selected swatches and review

Yep, if you haven't heard about this fabulous collection  from KBShimmer, then LISTEN UP... It is amazing!  Here are some swathes of 3 of the 9 FABULOUS colors! Summer, here I come! :)

KBShimmer "24 Carrot Bold" Matte
3 coats, no top coat

"24 Carrot Bold" Matte is a red-orange polish that is a stunning summer color.  This orange polish has a gold micro flake that shines in the light.  This color is super pigmented, so 2 coats is usual, but because I painted my layers thinner, I used 3 coats.

Here are some pics in indirect lighting.

Smooth finish, almost more "rubberized than matte, and the sparkles are visible in the sunlight and low-light.  This does take longer to dry, so be patient or top it with your favorite fast dry top coat for a shiny option, then follow it up with a matte top decide!. :)

Here are some pics using the flash!

I love this reddish-orange neon, it is amazing!! Bright and smooth, Oh yeah!!!! :)

KBShimmer "Don't Pink Twice" Matte
3 coats, no top coat

"Don't Pink Twice" Matte is a  pink polish with a subtle blue micro flake that shines in the light.  Super smooth and easy to apply.  2 coats is all that is needed to make this baby opaque, but I did 3 thin coats so I could get the maximum "WOW" factor! LOVE!

In indirect lighting.

I am NOT a pink fan, but this one had me HELLO!!!  I applied this color immediately to my toes, amazing!!!

With the flash.

These blue flake really set this polish apart, I can see myself wearing this polish all summer!

KBShimmer "What's Your Damage?"
4 coats, no top coat

Bottle Shot

"What's Your Damage?" is a  white "crelly" (creme/jelly) with neon glitters in pink, green, black and yellow.  The added black shreds give it an added edge. It is suggested that you may want to use a white base for this polish, but I opted to LOAD UP the glitter, and do 4 coats. LOL!

In indirect lighting.

The amazing this about these glitters, are the fact that they dry SMOOTH! It's amazing and refreshing to wear a glitter manicure and not NEED 3 coats of top coat.

And here is the way I decided to wear 2 of the colors...

I topped my manicure with top coat, since I wanted it to LAST!  Those blue flakes are simply gorgeous! I loved this manicure soo much, I wore it for 5 DAYS... no chips! That's love ya'll!! :) This brand is consistently great, formula applies well, dries to a shine, they really do put out a quality product.
