KBShimmer Spring 2014 Swatches: Review Part 1

Don't shoot me, I decided to split up the KBShimmer Spring Collection review into two parts. I really had fun swatching these, and my pictures got a little out of hand, LOL!

KBShimmer "Belle Of The Mall"
2 coats, no top coat

This is a pink coral jelly glitter packed with silver glitter in a variety of shapes and sizes. This color is great and the effect with the silver glitter is perfect for Spring.  Application was good in two coats, but you may want to apply three coats if you want perfect opacity for the tips. :)

KBShimmer "Quick And Flirty"
2 coats, no top coat

OMG! Seriously, this is an amazing polish! WOWZA! This is a purple holographic polish, and it is amazing. The holo effect is strong once you get outside, STUNNING! Applied perfectly in 2 coats, but since holo's tend to be thin, I would do three coats if you want this to last an entire week :)

KBShimmer "Make My Gray"
3 coats, no top coat

A grey based glitter, I don't think I have ever seen a grey based glitter, but I can say I am extremely happy I have this one. It's a light grey crelly base with added pink, turquoise and grey glitter.  It is unique and I LOVE IT! Application was easy, and this glitter is build-able and can be paired with your favorite grey creme, or with KBShimmers "My Life's Porpoise" (coming up tomorrow) :)

KBShimmer "Life Rose On"
1 coat, no top coat

One coat...AMAZING! This rose colored creme is perfect for the fast pedicure or manicure, one coat and you are "Spring Time" ready!

KBShimmer "Rush Flower Traffic" 1 coat over "Life Rose On"

Wow, I'm in LOVE! This glitter topper covered spectacular in ONE coat. It delivered the perfect amount of glitter with no fuss. I love the pairing of the square and round glitters mixed with the hexs....PERFECT!

KBShimmer "Chick Me Out"
3 coats, no top coat

Who can so "No" to a spring time yellow creme. Not me, LOL!  Yes, it took three coats to get it perfect, but I have yet to find a yellow creme that didn't require 3 coats or more on me. This shade is bright, without being NEON and it is the perfect egg yolk yellow. :)

KBShimmer "Laugh Myself Lily"
3 coats, no top coat

Not a fan. I don't know if it's the color blue crelly used as the base, or the glitter pairings of blue, pink, silver, gold and purple, but this one does not do "IT" for me. Application was fine, no issues there, it's just not my kind of glitter.

KBShimmer "Full Bloom Ahead"
3 coats, no top coat

This is great!  White crelly based polish with a mix of spring like colored glitters in varying shapes and sizes. Love, love, love..but I am a HUGE fan of white based glitters, so it's likely that I would love any white based glitter polish.  The application was great, no issues.

KBShimmer "Daisy About You"
3 coats, no top coat

I'm on the fence with this one. I love the light green crelly base, but I don't like the super tiny purple glitters added. However, I love the pairing of the green and the purple, they are complimentary colors and they look great together. Application was great, no issues.

Oh yeah, this collection is off to a good start...can't wait to show you the rest tomorrow :) Until then...

Keep It Sweet!

I still need the other 6 of this to have this collection and you just reminded me along with the rest of the Early Summer Collection that I need these too!! Perfect swatches!!!!! Full Bloom Ahead is gorgeous on you!
