The KBShimmer Spring 2016 collection launched earlier this week and I’m excited to share it with you. This collection has 7 new mega flame shades, which are holos with micro holographic glitters in tinted bases. They’re AMAZING! The other half of the collection has a touch of 90’s nostalgia with the neons, holos and pastels.

The swatches below were taken in my lightbox under daylight bulbs and in the late afternoon sun. The photos in the lightbox are more true to color.
Like an abstract painting, this white crelly polish has pops of colors in fuchsia, turquoise, and sapphire.
New to our Ultra Flair line up, Peony Pincher is a pastel pink with lavender undertones. This floral linear holographic polish shines best in bright lights.
The holo is strong in this pink. While it’s not flattering on my skintone, it’s a gorgeous shade. I love the holos.
A dusty peach shade, this shimmery orange crelly sparkles with micro holo dust and golden micro flakes. Based on the Pantone 2016 Spring/Summer shade Peach Echo.
This is a fun peachy orange. I really like the golden flakies in it. It screams summer to me. It’s not as bright as shown in the photos, it kept wanting to show up as a neon.
Like a good 90’s child, neon makes my heart flutter. This glitter top coat can add a punch of color to your nails with neon circle glitters in a rainbow of bright shades. 1 coat over your favorite white is 90’s perfection!
I dabbed this one on. It’s a lot of fun. It looks great layered over black, white or purple cremes.
I love the aqua base in this crelly and I think the pink glitters in it really make it stand out, perfect for spring.
This is an interesting crelly. To me it screams guys and plaid, with all the blue and reddish plummy glitter.
I love the lavender tone in this color and the holo is stunning. Plus, the name is so cute!
A raspberry pink, this mega holo shade is the ideal berry color with blue undertones.
I got so many compliments while wearing this shade! It’s beautiful berry pink!
I swear KBShimmer puts something into their oranges because I never shy away from them. This is a beautiful orangey peachy neutral that’s fun to wear because of the mega flame holo finish!
This is a fun soft green.
If you are into rich greens, you will love this shade. I swear, every color in the mega flame finish is gorgeous.
This is a perfect blue for Teal Thursday! If you are a fan of blues, you need this one.
This is a very soft, delicate, feminine lilac shade.
If you only try one polish from this collection, try this one. It’s a stunning black. I could wear this for weeks on end and not be bored because of the beautiful rainbow of glitters in it.
I always get a laugh out of the names in the KBShimmer collections. The puns are amusing.
The formula for these polishes were easy to work with, which is typical with KBShimmer. Of course, my favorites are all of the Mega Flames. Because HOLO AND GLITTER! OMG, so gorgeous, seriously! For me, I applied 2 coats of color and then 2 coats of top coat for a smooth finish on my nails. I love super shiny top coats. I sincerely hope that there will be more colors released in the Mega Flames formula.
If you’re looking for more subtle shades, try Peony Pincher, Purr-fectly Paw-some, So Flamous, or Things That Make You Go Bloom.
If you want bolder shades that won’t quit, Hello Dahlia, Upside Round, Ripe for the Pink-ing and Smells Like Green Spirit are great choices.
Of course, you can’t go wrong with a classic black with a twist like Night Bright.
My top picks are Night Bright, Upside Round, Set in Ocean and Pools Paradise.
