Oh, Monday…how I hate you. Well, this Monday isn’t too bad because I took the day off but it’s such a long stretch to get back to the next weekend. I had a sorta busy weekend so I am definitely happy to have an extra day to relax and get back on track. I had some time to swatch a few polishes so I started with the KBShimmer All The Bright Moves Collection. Listen, I love bright and juicy colors so these shades do not disappoint. I know how hard it can be to photograph neons, so I opted to use direct sunlight for my pictures. I normally don’t have the time to take sunlight pictures since I end up swatching in the evenings, but I just did not want to deal with the issues of my camera freaking out under artificial light. Let me show you my swatches before we get into the details.

Ugh, these are so pretty! I love neons, but I hate it when you have to wear a white base underneath to make them pop or when you have to apply 4 billion coats to get them to look nice. You will be happy to hear that these neons do NOT need white undies and are all opaque at 2 coats!! The only one that gave me a little trouble was the yellow shade: All The Bright Moves. I still got it to look nice and opaque with 2 coats but the second coat had to be somewhat thicker than I’m used to. I guess this is a 3 coater if you use thin coats. I also want to mention that Double Pog Dare You stained my nails. Unfortunately, it was the first shade I swatched so I had to really scrub hard and even used a sugar scrub to try to get off all the staining from my nails and surrounding skin. I don’t normally use a base coat when I swatch, so make sure that you use one to try to avoid staining. Despite the staining, I love this shade. I think it reminds me so much of one of my favorite Sephora by OPI shades called Slushied. If you love neons, I guarantee that you will love this collection. Heck, if you are filled with 90’s nostalgia, these are worth getting just for the names and inspiration. My unexpected favorite from the collection is Race Against Slime.
