KB Shimmer Early Summer Collection-Creams and Textures 2014



Today, I have for you the creams and textures from the first part of KB Shimmer's Summer Collection.  I always get excited when she drops a new collection-theres always something for everyone, application is always on point, and I never know what she will come up with next!

Application was exactly the same for all the creams.  Consistency is so important and Christy seems to have nailed that aspect.  I used two coats for all three creams, I had no issues and they all applied flawlessly. 

Let’s Not Coral has become a fast favorite here at KB Shimmer. This light pinky coral color often seems to shift from pink to peach tones depending light and clothing colors.

This color is HOT for summer!  A pinky peach coral? Yes, please!  I did a little nail art on my ring finger. I dotted flowers with a white cream and KB Shimmer Low & Be Bold.

Right As Reign is a deep, bold purple with blue and indigo undertones.

These colors are notoriously impossible to photograph!  I took one photo in my light box (above) and one outdoors in the shade.  It is a glorious blurple cream that is one of my favorite shades in the rainbow.  I did a gradient with a white cream on my ring finger.
Low & Be Bold is a bright near cobalt, ultramarine and flow blue, with slightly more of a redish undertone.

Electric royal blue cream.   Need I say more?!  I love this color so much, I have it in about seven different brands!  
She Twerks Out is a bright turquoise textured polish with blue undertones undertones. It is loaded with holographic glitters in teal, lime green, aqua and violet.

I used two coats and application was flawless.  It dries to a matte finish and it dries quickly.  This is supposed to be a texture glitter polish, but in my opinion, it is not different than any other glitter jelly polish, other than it drying matte.  I do show it without top coat, because that is how it is supposed to be worn.  It does wear well without top coat, unlike any other glitter jelly polish.
This is a gorgeous mixture of teals and purples.
Too Pop To Handle is a bright neon purple textured polish with magenta undertones. It is loaded with holographic glitters in magenta, violet, aqua and pink.

All three of the texture glitters applied flawlessly.  All three dried quickly and dried matte.  

Partners In Lime is a bright lime textured polish with gold undertones undertones. It is loaded with holographic glitters in gold, lime green and aqua.
Again, flawless application and only two coats.   This is a gorgeous lime green!

Parting Thoughts: I am all in with KB Shimmer's creams. I can do nail art in any form with them and that is a sure-fire winner for me! As far as the glitter textures, I am not sure they are what I would call textures, but maybe matte glitters. They are all gorgeous and each has a pop of color that is pretty and application was flawless.
