I know it's Monday but today's post is totally going to make up for that. Remember that press release I posted the other day? Well here are the six polishes I selected from that upcoming release to show you today. Stay tuned for more from this collection because I think I am going to be buying some of the ones that I don't have. They are just that awesome.
I have been a long time fan of KBShimmer, I have a few in my collection. They are always of great quality and such beautiful combos. I am so grateful that I was able to show these to you before the collection goes live. It is such an honor.
This is the early summer collection and will be available on May 23rd. There are three cream polishes, three textures, and six holographic polishes.
I picked two textures, two holographic polishes and two of the cream polishes. I wanted to show a little bit of everything. It was SO HARD to narrow them down. I wanted them all!!!
Note: All of the descriptions are direct from KBShimmer
Another note: This is by FAR the most popular collection I have shown on Instagram. I have never had so many likes on photos before!!!!
Ok, I'm just going to get right into it. This is Too Pop To Handle, one of the textured polishes. This is two coats over Barielle Hydrating Ridge Filler. No top coat, obviously!!! Is this not gorgeous!! There is so much depth to this. This is listed as "a bright neon purple textured polish with magenta undertones. Loaded with holographic glitters in magenta, violet, aqua and pink". I think that accurately sums it up. At first I thought it was going to be too sheer after the first coat, but I was wrong. Two coats made it perfect.
Next is Right As Reign. This is a "deep, bold purple with blue and indigo undertones". Yep, indigo is a great description. This one was so hard to photograph and get it to come off as color correct. The first two pictures are taken outside, in natural light. The color in those seems to be the most accurate. The last pictures are from my light setup inside. Still not too far off. This polish is on the purple side, so if you are looking for something deep indigo, this is the polish for you. I used the Barielle ridge filler and two coats topped with Glisten and Glow HK Girl.
BAM!!! This is Low And Be Bold. Bold it sure is. I love these bright blue polishes. I cannot pass one up. KBShimmer describes this as "a bright near cobalt, ultramarine and flow blue, with slightly more of a reddish undertone". They also call it "a near cream." Most likely because it is very much a crelly polish. Just so lovely and squishy. I mean look at it. It is very much a cobalt blue, reminds me of Essie's Butler Please only squishier, and prettier. I used a base of the Barielle ridge filler, two coats of Low And Be Bold and topped it with Glisten and Glow HK Girl.
Here is the first of the holos that I picked. This is Stark Raven Mad, two coats topped with HK Girl over the ridge filler. I love holo polishes. This is a very very dark holographic polish. A black holo for sure! Check out the rainbow on that!!! I wish I had been able to get some sunshine pictures of these, but again, no sun here. At least you can check out the rainbow even with my inside lights.
I think this one may be my favorite of the bunch, this is She Twerks Out. I thought for sure that Too Pop To Handle was going to be my favorite, but it was this one. It was also my most popular one on Instagram....almost one hundred likes. Which is the most likes ever on one of my pictures. It's at 99 likes...who wants to go make it 100! KBShimmer says that this is "a bright turquoise polish with blue undertones. Loaded with holographic glitters in teal, lime, green, aqua, and violet." That selection of glitters gave this so much depth. I used two coats for these photos.
Here is the last one, Big Tan On Campus. I used three thin coats for these pictures, over ridge filler and topped with HK Girl. The name pretty much says it, it's a tan holographic polish. So pretty. The rainbows really came out in this one. If you want something nice and neutral but with an unexpected kick, then this one is for you!!!
That completes my review of six of the early summer collection from KBShimmer. I want a couple more holos and probably the other textured polish. I also want to try some of the other bath and body items. (There was also a cuticle oil pen in the package and I am currently using it. I want to continue to use it so I can have a good thorough review of it. As of right now I want to buy at least one more )
Which one is your favorite? Are you going to buy any when the are released?
