KBShimmer Spring Collection 2016




Oh hai. Is it Spring yet? You mean that 90 degree weather in California during February is not normal? I am dreading Spring AND Summer because these crazy temperatures do not bode well for us. The only thing that makes me happy about Spring is, of course, lovely Spring nail polish collections…but you knew that already. This is a pretty big collection and it is actually a two parter: 7 polishes are part of the traditional Spring collection and the other 7 polishes are part of the Mega Flame Collection. Mega Flame: they are hot like lava and will singe your eyeballs with their holo/glitter/sparkly goodness. Let’s start with the first part of the collection which includes glitters, crellies and holos.

Note: These pictures were taken under bright LED light which intensifies the color and also shows off the holo the way you would see it in bright sunlight.

Now, let’s talk Mega Flame. These are some amazing polishes. They are scattered holo glitter suspended in a tinted base with some linear holo to boot. They are not super gritty, but you will feel minor texture if you don’t top coat them. Once you apply a top coat, such as Clearly On Top, you will get a completely smooth finish. I am in love with every single one of these.

I don’t know about you, but these two collections pretty much killed me–in a good way. They are everything I love about KBShimmer and more. The formula on all the polishes from the Mega Flame collection is perfection. One thing to note is that when you remove them, you will have glitter. All over. But it’s totally worth it. The crellies from the Spring Collection are so pretty and delicate–my favorite being Pools Paradise. I also love the two holos that are joining my beautiful KBShimmer holo collection. I know that this is a big collection so you will have to pick your favorites–unless you regularly purchase 14 polishes at a time in which case GET THEM ALL. I certainly have been known to buy 14, 16, 20 polishes at a time so I know it’s not as outlandish as it sounds. My top picks from the Spring Collection are: Pools Paradise, Peony Pincher and I Wet My Plants. Boy that was hard! From the Mega Flame Collection, my top picks are: ALL OF THEM. The great news is that you don’t have to wait that long to get your hands on these pretties. The official release date for these babies is 3/15/2016 on kbshimmer.com I have a few more items to share with you that are new so keep an eye out for that later in the week. I hope that you’re as excited about this new collection as I am. I am anxious to hear what you think so let me know in the comments below. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!

  1. I was so excited to see your swatches and they certainly didn’t disappoint! Spring collections are my favorites and KBShimmer does them exceedingly well. I loved your pairing of “Hello Dahlia” and “Upside Round.” Is your LED light a bulb you purchased or a special lamp?

    1. Thank you, Melissa! My LED light is a cheapie little desk lamp that I got at IKEA. It’s nothing special. I just notice because LED tends to be so much brighter and kind of blue-leaning, it intensifies the polish colors.

  2. awesome swatches! I’ve been dying to see these and you did them sweet justice. I know i’ll be buying the entire spring collection for sure. I love the mega flames, but I have to keep the sparklez down at work, just a tad, so I have a hard time spending money on so many disco ball polishes 🙁

    1. Thank you, Chelsea! I know what you mean about toning down the polish for work. Poo to conservative office nails. But even conservative colors/designs can be gorgeous. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I love So Flamous…not sure if I love the name or the color more. I am also giving major perv eyes to Set in Ocean.
