Phyrra's Favorites

The shades that I like the best are:

  • You’re So Shellfish
  • Happily Ever Aster
  • Mint-al Vacation
  • Scribble Me This
  • Periwinkle in Time
  • Red, White & Blue-tiful

The formulas for all of the polishes were great. The creams and holos apply smoothly. The jelly / crelly formulas were easy to work with. The glitters were great because you don’t really have to fish to get the glitter out. I do recommend dabbing the glitter toppers on to get the coverage you desire.

I really think that a lot of nail polish lovers will adore Sea You Around, since greens are so popular.

What shades do you like best from the KBShimmer Summer Collection? Do you love stars like I do?
