press sample
Hello! Here's part two of KBShimmer's Spring 2014 collection! The line consists of 16 new shades. Here's the press release if you want to see them all in one place. I'm breaking up my posts into the glitters and holos (8 shades) and the creams (8 shades). Check out the glitters here. All swatches done with KBShimmer Basic Training Base Coat and Clearly on Top Quick Dry Top Coat, (unless otherwise noted).

 KBShimmer Pansy-Monium- "This pansy purple cream offers full coverage in just two coats. With a slight red undertone, this purple will look great even on warm skin tones."
KBShimmer_Spring_2014_Pansy-Monium
 Ah get ready for a post filled with color! A beautiful purple with an excellent high shine formula. This is two coats, no top coat.

KBShimmer_Spring_2014_Sky_Jinks
KBShimmer Sky Jinks- I love those days, the ones when there is not a cloud in site, and the sky is the most stunning shade of bright blue. This medium blue cream with a hint of dustiness, reminds me of
those perfect days. Sky Jinks covers in 1 coat with careful application and is perfect in
two.

Another beauty with an excellent formula. Two coats, no top coat. Ring finger has 1 coat of Prism Break. Definitely a happy blue!

KBShimmer_Spring_2014_Life_Rose_On
 KBShimmer Life Rose On – This is my perfect pink, bright cheery, and it covers in 1-2 coats. This vivid cerise polish has blue undertones, making it wearable for many skin tones. Pair this with your
favorite glitter topper or use in stamping for a girly manicure.

 Love this pink! This is almost a one coater! I used two for the photos though, excellent formula..and I didn't want to take it off!

KBShimmer_Spring_2014_My_Life's_Porpoise
 KBShimmer My Life’s Porpoise- No matter if you spell it gray or grey, this pale shade is a neutral that is fun to wear alone, or under bright toppers like U Rock My Heart. This creamy shade covers fully in two coats.

 A perfect gray, great formula. Two coats here with no top coat.

KBShimmer_Spring_2014_Honeydew_List
 KBShimmer Honeydew List- Just like ripe honeydew, this dusty pastel green is perfect for spring or summer. This is the ideal color to wear under Rush Flower Traffic, or pair with Ice Queen for a sparkly spring manicure. Full coverage in just 2 coats.
KBShimmer_Spring_2014_Honeydew_List
 I'm really not a green lover, but this shade grew on me, it is a perfect Spring shade. Good formula, three coats needed for full coverage.

KBShimmer_Spring_2014_Eclipse
 KBShimmer Eclipse- Black is a fashion staple, not only in clothes, but on your nails! This is a true black cream, covering in 1-2 coats.
KBShimmer_Spring_2014_Eclipse
 Your standard black, delivered with excellent formula and high shine. This is two easy coats, no top coat.

KBShimmer_Spring_2014_Chick_Me_Out
 KBShimmer Chick Me Out- This bright yellow cream is the ideal shade to welcome warmer weather. Full coverage in two coats, I love this under Rush Flower Traffic.

KBShimmer_Spring_2014_Chick_Me_Out
 A fabulous bright happy yellow! Unfortunately this one gave me the most trouble application wise. I needed 4 coats for full coverage. Hoping it was just a fluke user error, even so, I'd go through the trouble of 4 coats to wear this one again.
KBShimmer_Spring_2014_A_Touch_Of_Glass
 KBShimmer A Touch Of Glass- This light aqua mint cream reminds me of tumbled sea glass. A pastel green with blue undertones, this color is covers in 2-3 coats.
KBShimmer_Spring_2014_A_Touch_Of_Glass
 My absolute favorite from this cream collection! Loooove. I saved this one to swatch last so I could keep it on :) Great formula, three coats here.
KBShimmer_Spring_2014_A_Touch_Of_Glass
 I'm so glad to see KBShimmer making creams, they did not disappoint! They work great for nail art too, as you will see in my next post :P Any must-haves for you here?

All the best,
