KB Shimmer Summer 2013

Good morning! Today I have a few polishes from the new KB Shimmer summer collection to show you. When these polishes showed up to review I was pretty excited, they are so bright and fun!

First up is Totally Tubular. Here's KB Shimmer's description- "When I think of the 80′s and 90′s, I can not help but think of Valley Girls, Surfers, and the rad lingo that swept the nation.  Totally Tubular is our nod to that era, with is almost teal blue green color, the fuchsia circles in two sizes, aqua circles, and other hex glitters in different colors and sizes.  If you love Don’t Teal Anyone, this shade is similar, but not the same."

I used two coats for the swatches below. As you can see I had great glitter coverage but if you love those big circle glitters, there aren't as many in this polish as I only got 2 of them on my nails here. Two coats of Out the Door over top of it.

Here is What's Your Damage- "What’s Your Damage? is a white crelly polish with neon glitters in pink and green.  Black shreds and dots give this polish an edgy look that reminds me of the 80s and 90s.  Due to the size of the large glitters, this polish may look best layered over white."

I didn't need to layer this over white but I did use 3 coats for full coverage. I had to dab a little to get the glitter placement but the overall look is so fun and bright, I couldn't help but add some neon angular tips. I used China Glaze Escaping Reality and Ciate Mojito for the tips.

The last swatch I have is of 24 Carrot Bold- "24 Carrot Bold is a red-orange polish that is a stunning summer color.  This orange polish has a gold micro flake that shines in the light.  This polish is super pigmented for coverage in two coats.  Shake well before use." 

Because of the neon pigment (and this polish is BRIGHT, my pictures do it no justice), 24 Carrot Bold dries to a satin matte finish. I like a matte finish ok, but I knew a shiny topcoat would make the gold micro flakies really pop. Oh I was right!

KB Shimmer can be purchased through their website or through their etsy shop. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with new collections!
