KBShimmer Summer 2016 Collection Swatches & Review


Hi guys! Today I have the Summer 2016 Collection from KBShimmer to share with you! This collection is being released tomorrow over on the KBShimmer site. This collection has a little something for everything no matter if you like holos, cremes or super sparkly glitters. Check out the swatches after the jump!




Along For The Tide is a blue base with flecks of shimmer that shift between blue and purple along with a nice holo (which I failed to capture D:) Depending on your skin tone and the lighting you're in this can lean either blue or purple, it was more blue toned on me. The formula was good, it was a nice consistency and easy to apply. I used 2 coats plus top coat for my photos.



Don't Play Koi is a white crelly with coral, light blue and grey glitter. I really love the color combo going on in this polish! The formula was good, it was sheer but it built easily. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



Good Reef! is a light peachy pink with pink/purple shimmer. This one is light, bleached neon sort of shade. The formula was unfortunately not my favorite, I found it to be a bit hard to work with because it was fairly streaky. For how I normally apply I needed 4 coats to get this even and opaque. I contacted Christy about it and she suggest trying 2 thin coats and a thick 3rd coat, which worked better, so I'd suggest applying that way if you pick this up! I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photo below.


Gull, Get Real! is a steel purple flecked glitter with a sprinkle of holo. If you liked the Birthstone polishes you'll like this one also, its the same sort of formula! The formula was good, it was a nice consistency and built up really easily. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



How Low Can You Flamingo? is a neon pink creme. This one is super bright, perfect for Summer! The formula was good, I liked the consistency and didn't have issues with it being streaky. I used 2 coats plus top coat for my photos.



Mai Tai One On is a light yellow with a strong golden shimmer (they might be little bitty flecks of glitter, hard to say!). The formula was good, it was sheer but buildable. I had some issues with streaks but they covered easily. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



Neon Me is a white crelly with neon circle glitter and little tiny neon micro glitters. The formula was good, it was sheer but easily buildable. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



One Night Sand is a bronze-y copper flecked glitter with a bit of holo. This is also like the Birthstone polishes in terms of finish! The formula was good, it was easy to apply with good glitter payoff. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



Playing With The Buoys is a light blue creme. This has a little bit of a minty-ness to it which is why my fingers are a little red looking in the photos (darn Irish genes haha). The formula was good, it was a really nice consistency and applied easily with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Ready For A Good Lime is a neon green creme. This is also a bit of a bleached neon, but its still very bright. My camera was having issues with this one, I managed to get the color right but my skin looks so weird haha! The formula was good, it had really good opacity and went on nicely if you apply it with a soft hand. I used 2 coats plus top coat but you may need 3 coats depending on your application.



Suit The Breeze is a cornflower blue with a pinky shimmer. The formula was ok, it was sheer but buildable. It did dry down a little dull so you'll want to top coat it to bring it to life. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



That's Nude To Me is a beige-y nude holo. The holo is nice and strong in person, more than it looks in photos. The formula was good, it was easy to apply and had good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.




The KBShimmer Summer 2016 Collection will be available at KBShimmer.com tomorrow 6/1/16. For international customers you can find KBShimmer at Harlow & Co and Live Love Polish
