KBShimmer Spring 2016 Collection

KBShimmer Spring 2016 Collection Review Swatches Video

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.

Like an abstract painting, this white crelly polish has pops of colors in fuchsia, turquoise, and sapphire.
Layering in 3 coats gives this polish the depth and dimension of quality art work.
If you are a fan of crellies, you’ll love this white polish. I love the turquoise, fuchsia and blue glitters in it.

Peony Pincher
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.

This pastel periwinkle crelly features a garden full of colorful glitters in pink, sapphire, silver and purple. Based on the Pantone 2016 Spring/Summer shade Serenity.

Like a clear country night, Night Bright sparkles like a billion stars in the sky. Only this night sky is best viewed in the light.
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.

What do you think of the KBShimmer Spring 2016 Collection? Which colors are your favorites?
