KB Shimmer Creams for Spring 2014


I had previously swatched several of the KB Shimmer Spring 2014 Collection already, but then-oh glorious day!  I was sent more to review in the mail!  I have three more of the Spring Cream Collection and the holo top coat to show you.

Honey Dew List  "Just like ripe honeydew, this dusty pastel green is perfect for spring or summer. This is the ideal color to wear under Rush Flower Traffic, or pair with Ice Queen for a sparkly spring manicure. Full coverage in just 2 coats."
I used two easy coats of Honey Dew List and it went on very smoothly. All of the creams are creamy and opaque.  I did some simple dots on my ring finger with Chick Me Out, Life Rose On, Sky Jinks, and Pansy-Monium.

Sky Jinks:  "I love those days, the ones when there is not a cloud in site, and the sky is the most stunning shade of bright blue. This medium blue cream with a hint of dustiness, reminds me of those perfect days. Sky Jinks covers in 1 coat with careful application and is perfect in two."
I used one coat on my pinkie and two coats on the rest of my fingers.  Application was excellent.  I have to add here, that the brush has a lot to do with it as well. It is a higher end brush that allows the polish to go where you want it to go.  I did a simple flower design on my ring finger using Chick Me Out and Life Rose On.
Pansy-Monium:   "This pansy purple cream offers full coverage in just two coats. With a red undertone, this purple will look great even on warm skin tones."
I love this royal purple cream.  I used two coats and had great application again.  I used Chick Me Out, Life Rose On, Sky Jinks, and Honey Dew List to add a dotted french manicure. 

Stamping:  When I got the first few creams from KB Shimmer, I was excited to see what they could do as far as nail art goes.  I used all five of these to stamp on my hand and four out of the five stamped wonderfully!  Chick Me Out is not quite able to make it as a staling polish, but works great as a base.  Honey Dew List, stamped well, but needs a much lighter base color to show it off.
Prism Break: "We here at KBShimmer love rainbows, and nothing is more rainbow then holographic polishes! This linear holo top coat was designed to bring rainbow bling, while still allowing the color below to shine. One light coat over any cream will turn your color into a holographic lover’s dream or add a second coat to pump up the prism power!"
Prism Break is a holo top coat.  I used one coat over Honey Dew List and one coat over Sky Jinks.  It went on flawlessly and has a scattered holo effect on any cream polish.
Parting Thoughts: I am floored by the cream collection that KB Shimmer put out. I actually have another window open so that I can buy the three I did not get in to review!  What I love the most about them is their opacity which allows them to be used for stamping and nail art.
