I keep telling myself I'm going to cut down on the amount of photos per shade and per post...and then a collection like this comes out. And I simply can't just put up ONE photo of each glorious shade! AM I RIGHT? So..this post is a biggie! I sure hope you enjoy and appreciate seeing them as much as I do. This is the second Part of the gigantic KBShimmer summer release. Here's the press release for this set. Here's my previous post with Part 1 - Sun Drenched Neons.
The 9 shades of KBShimmer Summer 2015 Glitters! Keep reading for my thoughts and swatches of each shade! All shades swatched with KBShimmer Basic Training base coat and Clearly On Top top coat (where noted).
VITAMIN SEA: An aqua jelly polish with pink, silver, and micro holographic glitters
I adore this shade!! I have on 3 thin coats here but you can get away with 2 thick coats. Dries down to a sort of satin finish so you need top coat (I used KBShimmer Clearly On Top) for the gloss. This one is a bit brighter and a touch less green and more blue leaning in person. I apologize..this post was so large that I actually forgot to check the photos against the polish bottle to see how true to life my images are. I usually do that and color correct before uploading into the blog post.
This one pretty much stopped me in my tracks. I was in the middle of swatching when I noticed the time, I had had to stop and go make dinner for the family! Once I got to the kitchen and noticed my own gorgeous fingertips I couldn't stop staring!
HOME SURF: A muted teal crelly with silver holographic glitters in several sizes
Another win for me! Well, actually this entire collection is a win for me. This is 3 coats, also could be 2 coats with careful application. My fave shades to wear these days are muted/dusty aquas, blues and teals so yeah. This one is yummy for me and lighter in person than my photos captured!
PINK-A COLADA: A violet leaning pink crelly polish with holographic glitters in lime green, light blue & pink
An easy 3 coats here, excellent formula. Well, all have excellent formulas actually! This one photographed a touch pinker than it looks in person. It's a bit more of a hint of purple/pink in person. Love love the contrasting glitters in this shade!
SHELL SHOCK: A peach leaning tan polish with holographic gold glitter, magenta glitter, and copper glitters
A beautiful neutral! Not sure how well it goes with my skin tone but I love it anyway! An elegant glitter polish! Maybe even office appropriate? This is 3 coats.
WE BE JAMMIN’: A bright magenta with blue shimmer and micro holographic sparkle
Oh man this shade is so pretty. And the shimmer and sparkle are so visible and yet not over the top. This is 2 coats.
WHAT ARE YOU WADING FOR?: A deeper toned periwinkle linear holo polish with indigo blue shimmer
I've got 3 coats here (could be a 2 coater) and no top coat. How can you go wrong with blue holo? Makes me wanna take a swim in the ocean :D
ALLOY MATEY!: Our most blingy silver polish yet, packed with micro and fine silver holographic glitters!
You need this. If you are a glitter lover you just need to stop drop and buy. You will not regret it, or the next one either. OMG you need them.
This is 2 coats, no top coat. I wish I could paint my walls this.
Blurred the nails on purpose so you could see the bottle and how these sparkle AND rainbow. Have I mentioned you need this? ;)
SUN & GAMES: A gold holographic polish packed with micro fine glitters for a sunny full coverage look
I'm so in love with this it's in the need a backup (although I never ever will run out bottle number 1) category. Or the dreaded "I love this so much I'll never use it." Do you do that too? It's silly. WHY do I do that? This is also 2 coats and no top coat.
WAVE THE FLAG: A patriotic glitter topper with red, white & blue matte glitters and tiny white stars
When I first looked at the collection I thought I'd show this over the blue holo, which I'm sure would look great, but then I knew it had to be over Sun & Games. I don't regret it :P
Here's your July 4th mani right here! Easy Peasy!
So!! What are your faves? Did you already purchase? I've got the amazing flakes post coming up soon too!
