KBShimmer Spring 2015 Collection Review

KBShimmer Spring 2015 Collection

PressSample
Hiyah there Polished Babes!!! Today I have the highly anticipated Spring 2015 Collection from KBShimmer. This collection consists of 12 new polishes including, four holos, one creme, and seven crellies. I won't do much talking, but you should go ahead and prepare your PayPal, credit card, debit card, and any other forms of payment you may have at your disposal. Let's go ahead and take a look.

Creme
Eyes White Open is described by the brand as "a white creme with two coat coverage." The formula on this was excellent and went on practically opaque in just one coat. I still used two as always. There were no issues with application. This baby received a warm welcome into my collection, as one of my all-time favorite white cremes (Cult Nails Tempest) is sadly going away.

Holos
Blue-d Lines, according to the brand, is a "cool toned, pale blue ultra holographic polish." This one has an excellent formula and went on without any issues in just two coats. The holo is this is super intense, the strongest I've ever used from KBShimmer.

Ins and Sprouts is described as a "pale green citron colored holographic polish." Again, the formula was impeccable and went on without any issues. I used two easy coats here. I absolutely love the color of this one. I don't think I have anything like this in my collection. This holo flame on this one is insane!

Thistle Be the Day is a "pale pinkish purple ultra linear holo." I feel like a broken record, but the formula is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!! I used two coats and there were no issues with application at all. I really felt like this polish was applying itself. This one also packs an amazing holo punch! It is absolutely amazing and stunning!!

Ther last holo I have to show you is called Blush Money. This one is described by the brand as being "based on the 2015 Pantone Color, Strawberry Ice, this peachy rose colored polish shows off gold shimmer indoors, while outside, a linear holographic rainbow shines." Umm...yes please!! This baby is stunning and was a surprise favorite out of the holos. Of course, I love purple, but this one took the cake. The gold shimmer is very apparent indoors and totally adds a unique feel to the polish. The formula was amazing (are you tired of hearing me say that yet?). I used two coats here.

 Crellies
Meow or Never is a described by the brand as being "based on the Pantone spring color Glacier Gray, this polish is a very pale gray, almost white in color with pops of purple, gray, periwinkle and sky blue." The great formulas didn't stop with the holos. This crelly went on effortlessly in three thin coats. I used topcoat to create a smooth finish. The color combination used here is super cute!!

To Peach His Own is one of the most unique color combinations I've ever seen on a polish. According to the brand, "this pale peach polish shines with holographic glitters in lime green, gold, violet and magenta." The formula was nothing short of perfection. I used three thin coats and had no issues with application. This was another one that surprised me and turned out to be one of my favorites of the entire spring collection.

Wind Swarm is "based on the Spring 2015 Pantone color, Aquamarine, and features a pale sky blue base." The formula was good. I used three coats and topcoat here. There were no issues with application. There is a pretty shimmer in the base that really adds an extra dimension to this beauty.

I'm So Sweet Pea (love the name!) has a "pale purple base with pink, mint, purple, and turquoise glitters." The formula was pretty sheer, but not problematic at all. I used four thin coats for these photos. Super cute glitter mix here!

 Sweet Egg-Scape is "a pale, bubblegum pink polish with pastel aqua star glitters, coral triangles, lavender dots, red squares and sliver holo hexes." The formula was good, but you have to be careful with application here. The chunky glitters tended to clump together a bit. I used two coats and topcoat here.

Cool Hand Cuke is "a pale minty green polish loaded with pastel glitters in circles, triangles, stars and hexes." There was also a beautiful shimmer to the base. The formula was great and went on without any issues in three thin coats.

The final (and my absolute favorite) polish in the spring collection is called Funky Cold Patina. It "features a cool turquoise green base, with pops of metallic copper, blue and purple." THE FORMULA IS PEEEERRRRFEECCTT!! Oops...sorry for screaming! I cannot tell you how much I love this one! I used two easy coats and topcoat here.
