KBShimmer Summer collection review. Part 1 : the blues and greens

Hi guys!
It feels like ages since I last posted and truth be told, it kind of has been, the longest blogging break I've ever had. I've been feeling extremely tired ever since my surgery but I'm not sure that's the only reason. I've been feeling down, I think, and I needed the time off. Badly.

Well, today I have the first part of my KBShimmer Summer collection review to share with you : the blues and greens.

Formula was, as always with KBShimmer, flawless : thin but pigmented, easy to apply and with excellent glitter pay-off. I used 2 coats on all of these except for the glitter toppers which only required a single dabbed coat.

Mint-al Vacation

"This dusty seafoam mint has two personalities. In low light, it has a beautiful white shimmer setting off the pastel green hue, but in the sun or bright light, you can see a holographic rainbow of color.  Mint-al vacation covers in 2-3 coats on most nail lengths."

A gorgeous minty holo with lots of sparkle. I wish the holo was easier to capture on camera because it IS there!

Sweet Wave

"On summer road trips, my sister and I got to pick out a treat for the road.  One of my favorites was the sweat and sour little disks in pastel colors.  That tart treat inspired this candy like top coat.  White, periwinkle and mint hex glitters swim among yellow and coral glitters in several sizes.  These glitters just pop against so many colors, from black to purples, pinks, and oranges."

I really love the fun colorful glitter combination of this topper! I can see it working on so many colors. I decided to pair it with Mint-al Vacation.

Sea You Around

"Sea You Around is a emerald green jelly with teal undertones. the jelly is filled with fuchsia, light blue and chrome circles, sky blue squares, hexes in sliver, blue and fuchsia with a dusting of fuchsia microbars. Micro holographic glitters give this jelly polish such sparkle and depth. Layer this polish 2-3 times and the color becomes deep and dreamy."

There's so much depth in Sea You Around. And such a fitting name too, the glitters seem to be swimming in the glass-like jelly base.

Periwinkle In Time

"Periwinkle In TimePeriwinkle In Time might be my favorite polish from the summer collection. Inspired by blue hydrangea and periwinkle flowers, this soft cool blue has a purple undertone, making it the most perfect periwinkle color. Accented by silver holo and violet holo circle glitters and holo glitters in teal, violet, marine blue and silver and a micro holo shimmer, this light blurple polish is sure to please."

I love everything about this polish : the base color is gorgeous and the glitter combo perfectly harmonious and ultra sparkly! It has got to be my surprise favorite from these.

Happily Ever Aster

"When the weather turns warm, and the spring flowers are a fading memory, I turn to the aster for bright pops of color.  With it’s daisy like petals, and shades of blue, purple, white and pink, this later bloomer was the inspiration for Happily Ever Aster.  Periwinkle, light aqua blue, purple, lavender and white glitters swim in a clear base surrounded by tiny bits of holographic glitters for a sparkling top coat.  Try this over Right As Reign or Pansy-monium for a purple lovers dream."

Another beautiful blend of cool tones pastels and a heavily packed glitter topper. I particularly loved the mix of matte and metallic glitters, it makes a totally unique combo. Shown over Dance Legend Smoky River Of Time.

Red, White & Blue-tiful

"Throughout the nation, the 4th of July is celebrated with the iconic color combination, red, white and blue. This year, our patriotic themed polish features mini metallic stars in those classic colors. We started with a holo marine blue star, added silver holo graphic stars, and finished with metallic red stars and a scattering of red holo stars. Swimming among the stars are micro red, sliver and blue glitters and micro holographic glitters for a sparkly finish. This limited edition polish will be available through the end of July."

Wow! If you need a patriotic polish, look no more, this one's just perfect! I had to fish out some of the stars but it was no trouble at all. Red, White & Blue-tiful is shown over Zoya Ling from the Bubbly collection.

Overall :
Another fun and unique KBShimmer collection. My top picks : Mint-al Vacation, Periwinkle In Time and Happily Ever Aster.

I can't wait to show you the second half of this Summer collection! In the meantime, thank you so much for bearing with me and don't hesitate to let me know if you grabbed any of them or if you're planning to!
Thank for looking girls!
