KBShimmer Summer Vacation, Swatches and Review

Press Sample

What better way to kick off a week than with KBShimmer's brand new Summer Vacation collection. I shared the press release last week, and since the polishes are available this Friday (7/28), time to make those wish lists available! All the colors are loaded with that special holographic flake that lays completely flat!

KBShimmer Summer Vacation, Swatches and Review

**All my photos first show two indoor shots, then two direct sunlight shots*

Flock This Way: 2 coats. This is a hot magenta pink loaded with a copper shimmer. I love how basically all these colors glow with the flakes. I also love how they look textured and gorgeous, but are completely smooth even without top coat.

Shady Beaches: 3 coats. This is totally a 2 coat polish! I wasn't paying attention and put a third coat on one nail, lol, so I finished off the other nails to be even. But you will only need two coats. This is a unique copper color on me. I've seen other swatches where it almost pulls pink on people. My photos are definitely color accurate to how this looks on me.

Squeeze the Day: 3 coats. This can totally be 2; it simply depends on the length of your nails. When Christy announced that she was going to do a full collection with this finish, I was all like OMGAH PLEASE DO A YELLOW AND LIME GREEN ONE. Well, dreams come true, and for me, it is this polish. This is hands down, no contest, my absolute favorite of the collection. It has this beautiful orange shimmer. It's everything to me! And no lobster hands!

Kiwi Real: 2 coats. Here's the green I wanted. I'm going to pretend KBShimmer made these two colors for me LOL. It's pretty spot on for the inside of a kiwi. It's soft too. There's a pop of extra green shimmer, which makes this so special.

No Wave: 2 coats. This is such a pretty blue. It's almost like a teal turquoise. Again, it's super rich. No staining to report and I wore this one for 20 minutes. It's definitely reminding me of the ocean.

Berry Chill: 2 coats. This one should have had three coats. While my nails were covered, upon seeing the photos, I notice some balding. I tend to paint with thinner coats, so this one depends on your painting style! Soooo I'm not a purple lover (don't throw things at me!) BUT this one is amazing. I love orchid colors and I love how it retains that rich base.

Hashtag You're It: 2 coats. I know this one will be a huge favorite. It's a plum colored polish filled with a duochrome shimmer that transforms this polish with each movement. It's really pretty!

Here's a shade shot to show off the duochrome shift. It's like the purple sister to We Make Your Dreams Come Blue!

I'm Onyx: 2 coats. While I don't think of black for a summer polish, this is like the night sky during summer nights, where you lay out on the grass and look out at the stars (if you have them. I see nothing in the city. Whomp.) The blue to purple shifting shimmer make this a perfect galaxy mani base.

Although it's hard for me to pick favorites, Squeeze the Day (the yellow) is by far my absolute favorite. That one, Shady Beaches, Flock this Way, Kiwi Real, and Berry Chill are the 5 I absolutely can't live without. But I would genuinely buy the whole set if I didn't have them. This finish is really special and my stash is happy to add them! Of course, I'll be sharing nail art in the upcoming weeks!

KBShimmer’s Summer Vacation collection will be available July 28th, 2017 and retail for $9.25 each.

  6. I still stand by teal and green being my favorites from this collection. The whole collection is fun, but I know those two would get the most use.
