Press Sample

GOOOOOOD MORNING! I have a HUGE post for you today and that's because it's time for the KBSHimmer Nauti by Nature Spring 2017 collection! It releases tomorrow and I have comprehensive swatches to help you decided on your purchases! I've got sun shots, mattes shots, and if you like holo, glitter, shimmer, or jellies, there's something here for you to love. Grab a drink and take a seat! I left all my photos large to click away :)

When I saw this collection, I had to pull out my favorite beach towel because I am so ready for the beach! The polishes are just ready for the season too.

First I'm going to show you all six holos! All the formulas were two coaters and for each polish, I have two shots in indoor lighting and two in direct sunlight. Here's a quick collage of the six in the sunlight. The holo flames are very strong. Are you swooning yet?!

Macaw Me Maybe: 2 coats.  Bright red holographic inspired by Macaws. Yup, I totally see it. It's a true red on me! It doesn't pull pink and it has a flawless application.

The Girl is Tiki: 2 coats. Rusty coral. I LOVE this color! It's tropical but yet not too bright. I like that it's unexpected but it's really special. The holo is very strong on this one. It reminds me a Mai Tais.

Copa-Banana: 2 coats. Golden yellow holo that's opaque in 2 coats?! What heaven am I in?! I'm in love love with this holo! I know people are meh on yellow, but not me. I love this. It's also a great shade of yellow because of the gold, so no lobster hands!

Keep Palm and Carry On: 2 coats. A yellow leaning palm tree green! I love green polishes. I'm picturing this, with I Never Would Have Guessed for the perfect palm tree art. Oh yes, I'll be back with that!

Tropic Like It's Hot: 2 coats. Turquoise waters. I love how vibrant this blue is. I didn't have any staining on my cuticles despite its opaque formula. Another happy camper.

Latitude Adjustment: 2 coats. This represents the sun as dawn nears. It's a periwinkle holo, which you don't see too often. It's very different from Tropic Like It's Hot. I can't decide which I love more!

Saved by the Shell: 3 coats plus top coat. Inspired by sea shells, this is so spot on. I happen to love shimmery neutrals, and if you just google any seashell, you can see the pink shimmer insides of them. This knocked it out of the park. I love this color on my nails.

Got it Sandaled: 2 coats plus top coat.  This is like the shimmer sister to Latitude Adjustment. Both are reminiscent of dusk but instead of holo, this has a beautiful pink shimmer. It's a bit lighter in person. The second photo is more accurate.

Tempting Fete: 2 coats plus top coat. Then matte. I used KBShimmer Matte Top Coat for all the photos in the rest of the post. This is inspired by the costumes of Junkanoo. It's a rainbow of hex, mini hex, and mini bar glitter. Seriously a party on my nails. I love it matte where it reminds me of a frosted cake.

Starfishing for Compliments: 2 coats plus top coat. Then matte. Oh em gee, these names are killing me! I love love the base color of this as it reminds me of sand and then the colors in the ocean. There are mini star glitters in black and turquoise. Star glitter to me is like AHHH because of my nail curves, but these are mini stars so they lay perfectly on my nails. No fishing (see what I did there?!) for glitters either. Stars were plentiful without any digging.

Salt Water Sassy: 2 coats plus top coat. Then matte. Heyyyy named after the candy from my home state. Ok but really, this is inspired by the Caribbean waters and the colors that bounce off it it. Coral, turquoise, yellow, and white glitters make for a great combination. I just love the coral and yellow glitter.

Show Me the Mahi: 3 coats plus top coat. Then matte. MEET MY FAVORITE. I can't get over this color which is inspired by the deep waters. This is a deep blue jelly PACKED with holo glitter and color shifting iridescent glitters. Wait until you see it matte where I fainted and proclaimed that I never want to take this polish off! JUST YOU WAIT FOR SOME NAIL ART. Seriously, can I just blog about this polish from now on, everyday?

There's also a new mani shot scent: Knotty Girl.  This is a combination of sweet melon, raspberry nectar, Italian lemon, creamy coconut, and raw sugarcane with a hint of banana. I hate banana scents but I couldn't pick up any in this. I LOVE this scent so I'm happy I couldn't smell the banana! I hope this comes out in the cuticle balm or  sugar scrub!






So there you have it! Do you have any favorites? My favorite holos are Copa-Banana, The Girl is Tiki, and Latitude Adjustment. My favorite shimmers are Show Me the Mahi, Saved by The Shell, and Starfishing for Compliments. There's really something for everyone here. But if you can only pick one, Show Me the Mahi....just trust me. And I used KBShimmer matte top coat in all my photos, so grab that too!

The Nauti by Nature Spring 2017 Collection from KBShimmer is available on TOMORROW, March 18, 2017. Each polish retails for $9.25. There will also be set discounts as well. For example, if you want just the 6 holos, it will be $55 AND you get a free base coat!
