Hi everyone! Today I have the first collection in KBShimmer's Spring 2016 offerings, the Mega Flame Collection. After the popularity of some previous releases including Alloy Matey, I Feel Gourd-geous, and Sun and Games, KBShimmer decided to create a whole collection with the gorgeous jelly microglitter formula. These 7 sparkling jellies will be released, along with the 7-piece Spring 2016 Collection, on March 15 on the KBShimmer website.
I will start off with the formula on these because I found it very consistent across the board. The looked like they would be sheer and did look a little sheer on the first coat, but built up perfectly to opacity in 2 coats. The formulas weren't to thick or too thin, they were just right! They spread very easily and weren't runny. All of those things are what I look for in a glittery jelly polish and these were superb in all categories! I used 2 coats of topcoat on all of them to give them a glassy smooth finish (I used KBShimmer Clearly On Top), but you can wear them without topcoat for a textured glittery look. I did notice that they look a little more muted in the bottle than on the nail, but this is because of the tendency of the silver microglitters to stick to the sides of the bottle. They are, in fact, really vibrant and lovely shades!
Ripe for the Pink-ing is a raspberry pink jelly with holo microglitter. This was one of my favorites! Such a bright and happy pink!
So Flamous is a muted orange jelly with holo microglitter. This was one of the more unique ones in the collection and really had an almost coppery tone to it.
Stalk Market is a celery green-yellow jelly with holo microglitter. OMG...this was another favorite of mine! It's so bright and fun!
Smells Like Green Spirit is a deep lime green jelly with holo microglitter. A beautiful green...I can never resist a beautiful green!
Set in the Ocean is an aqua blue jelly with holo microglitter. I will never tire of fabulous, aquatic blue glittery jellies!
Things That Make You Go Bloom is a lilac purple jelly with holo microglitter. This is one of the more reserved shades, but the holo glitter packs a punch in the pale lilac base.
Night Bright is a black jelly filled with holo microglitter. This is a true black and the glitter really glows from within.
KBShimmer products are available from their website as well as from Harlow & Co. (Canada) for international customers. Be sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram for updates on new collections and to see swatches of all of their polishes. Thanks for looking everyone!
