Yup, I need a break. Yup, I’m happy to take it at the beach. And I am also happy to wear one of the nine gorgeous shades in the KBShimmer Beach Break Collection at the beach and everywhere else. It’s a lovely summer collection that will transport you to the waterfront every time you admire your gorgeous nails.
I have five of the shades in the Beach Break Collection for review and Marcia has the remaining four. Today I am going to take you to the shore with two shades, Knot Today and Water Relief. Tuesday I will have my other three shades for you – Turtley Awesome, Sun Kissed, and Where My Beaches At?
Knot Today is a nod to white caps made from cruising along in your motorboat. This crelly nail polish has a creamy white base with super pretty metallic flakes of various sizes in pink, green, blue, and gold. KBShimmer says that this shade is like a big white ship with colorful little passengers. I find that it is best applied in three very thin coats. I had to fish around a bit for all the flakes but once I had them I must say I loved this color way more than I expected to! It is a lovely summer shade, soft and refreshing looking.
My second shade today, Water Relief, is also a very refreshing shade – a pale mint crelly with tons of flakes that vary from lime to gold to copper. Just looking at this polish makes me feel so relaxed…I can feel all the tension draining from my body. In fact, this shade really reminds me of the perfect beach spot in Michigan, Torch Lake. It’s Michigan’s deepest inland lake and the color of the water is incredible. It’s so clean you can see right to the bottom.
Water Relief has a thinner consistency than Knot Today so it’s easy to do three thin coats. One coat and the pale mint looks more pale than mint. The true beauty really comes out in the second and third coats. I absolutely love this Flakie Crelly and plan to wear it next on my toes.
Knot Today and Water Relief are only the beginning of this beach adventure! On Tuesday I will have my review of the magical shimmery Turtley Awesome, the sunset perfect Sun Kissed, and the tri-thermal Where My Beaches At? So stay tuned, and check out the Beach Break Collection before shades start selling out! – Lisa
