Hi everyone! Today I have the second collection in KBShimmer's Spring 2016 offerings, the aptly named Spring 2016 Collection. This has some more traditional KBShimmer polishes like glittery crellies, Ultra Flair linear holos, and even a neon glitter topper! These 7 polishes will be released, along with the 7-piece Mega Flame Collection, on March 15 on the KBShimmer website.
Prints Charming is a white crelly filled with fuchsia, turquoise, and sapphire glitters. Formula was traditional KBShimmer crelly awesomeness and had full opacity in 3 thin coats. I adore a good white crelly glitter polish and the color combo in this one is perfection!
Hello Dahlia is a dusty peach crelly filled with holo microglitter and golden microflakes. Formula was easy to use and I used 3 thin coats for full coverage. This shade was based on the Pantone Spring/Summer 2016 shade Peach Echo. It wanted to pull REALLY orange in photos, but I adjusted it the best I could to look more like its true shade.
Upside Round is a clear-based glitter topper filled with matte neon glitters in a rainbow of shades. The formula was pretty easy to use but did require a bit of dabbing with some of the larger glitters to get them just where I wanted them on the nail. Here I used 1 dabbed coat over Hello Dahlia for a bit of a different look, but it would be perfect over a white base as well! I know a lot of people typically layer neon glitters over whites, but I always love to layer them over different pastels shades for a slightly different look!
Pools Paradise is a light aqua crelly with glitters in neon pink, periwinkle, and aqua. Formula was very easy to use and I used 3 thin coats for full coverage. This one was a bit different than most KBShimmer glitter crellies to me because the glitter had a more subtle feel, which can be very nice for those of you who aren't into total glitter bombs! This shade is based on the Pantone Spring/Summer 2016 shade Limpet Shell.
I Wet My Plants is a pastel periwinkle crelly with glitters in pink, sapphire, silver, and purple. Formula was very easy to use and built up to opacity in 3 thin coats. Like Pool's Paradise, this was a more subtle glitter polish and it has a very calm and soothing color palette. This was based on the Pantone Spring/Summer 2016 shade Serenity.
Peony Pincher is a pastel pink linear holo with lavender undertones. Formula was very nice and I used 2 easy coats for full coverage. This addition to KBShimmer's Ultra Flair line has an insane holo flame and is perfectly springy!
Purr-fectly Paw-some is a pastel moody blue linear holo with steel grey and lavender undertones. Again, amazing holo formula with full opacity in 2 easy coats. This is another addition to KBShimmer's Ultra Flair line and is also based on the Pantone Spring/Summer 2016 shade Serenity. This Ultra Flair line has some super intense holo flames for sure!
