KBShimmer Early Summer 2014 Swatches!

Press Sample

Good morning! KBShimmer is releasing the first of 2 Summer collections on Friday and I have half of the Early Summer Collection to show you today! There are 12 in total: 6 holos, 3 cremes, and 3 glitter textures. I have 2 of each category to give you a peek into all parts of the new collection!

The holos:

KBShimmer PT Young Thing
This platinum silver polish is made up completely of two types of holographic pigment, no fillers or anything to obscure the beauty of the linear holographic effect. 
I'm showing two coats below with no top coat.
 If you have followed this blog for a while, you will notice that I don't post holo polishes often. I like them, but I don't have as much love for them as other finishes. BUT when I put this polish on and walked into the sun, my jaw dropped! Wow, just wow!

KBShimmer Run! It's The Coppers!
Copper is all around us, in our homes, our money, and is even found in our bodies, so with so much copper inspiration, how could we not offer a polish in this useful metal’s color.  Run! It’s The Coppers! is loaded with holographic pigment to add tons of linear rainbow bling.
I'm showing two coats below with no topcoat.
Again, a gorgeous holo!

The cremes:
KBShimmer Let's Not Coral
Let’s Not Coral has become a fast favorite here at KBShimmer.  This light pinky coral color often seems to shift from pink to peach tones depending light and clothing colors.
I'm showing two coats below with no topcoat.
I love how squishy this is with a shiny finish. 

KBShimmer Low And Be Bold
Low & Be Bold is a bright near cobalt, ultramarine and flow blue, with slightly more of a redish undertone.  This color is what I like to call a near cream. 
I'm showing two coats below with no top coat.
There is still slight VNL with the squishy crelly finish, I think 3 would be perfect coverage.

The glitter textures:
KBShimmer She Twerks Out
She Twerks Out is a bright turquoise textured polish with blue undertones undertones.  Loaded with holographic glitters in teal, lime green, aqua and violet, this textured polish is a fun summer color. 
I'm showing two coats below with no top coat. 
This isn't your run of the mill sandy texture. Instead, the base dries down to reveal the glitter for texture. You can also use two coats of a thick top coat if you prefer to not have it textured. Love the color combo of glitters and base in this one. It dried quickly as well!

KBShimmer Too Pop To Handle
Too Pop To Handle is a bright neon purple textured polish with magenta undertones.  Loaded with holographic glitters in magenta, violet, aqua and pink, this textured polish is a fun summer color.
I'm showing two coats below with no top coat. 
Again, this is a glitter texture and you can use two coats of top coat if you prefer the shiny look. I love the base color in this!

There you have them, folks! Aren't they fun? Which are your must haves? PT Young Thing, Let's Not Coral, She Twerks Out, and Too Pop To Handle for me! Although I really like all of the ones I got to review!
