KBShimmer always creates a seasonal collection of polishes that are to die for. The polishes for Spring 2016 are mixed with creally, cream, holographics as well as their new formula, Ultra Flairs. It’s hard for me to pick favorites when dealing with KBShimmer since they are all wonderful. The three I’m sharing today were sent for consideration and after using them I just had to buy Peony Pincher (see Lisa’s review) and Purr-fectly Pawsome.

KBShimmer is well known for their crelly polishes that contain a variety of glitters within. What makes these great is that the glitters lie flat so I don’t get obsessed with playing with them and can just enjoy the way they look on my nails.

Pools Paradise is typical of these beautiful crelly polishes. It’s a described as a lightened green leaning aqua. The glitters are neon pink, periwinkle and aqua. They really stand out making this quite unique. The glitter load is light and the sizes are small and medium.

Prints Charming is a great summer polish and will look amazing if you have a tan (real or faux). It needs 3 coats for the white crelly to completely cover and to layer the glitters (fuchsia, turquoise and sapphire) so you get more depth and dimension. It’s rare that I’d recommend a glitter polish for a pedicure but this would look amazing.

The third polish is a favorite of mine: Blush Money. It’s a peachy rose with gold shimmer. It totally glows in bright light whether inside or out. I love a holographic polish and this linear holo is perfect for spring. It contains a medium amount of small glitter. I needed two coats. The manicure lasted a full week and if I didn’t have an appointment would have lasted for another week.

It’s hard to beat KBShimmer polishes for beauty and long lasting, reliable polishes. They’ve made me appreciate what a good independent company can create. Have you experienced the beauty of KBShimmer?  — Marcia

    Ahh, Pools Paradise looks like something I need! I’m a sucker for those minty/aqua crellies, especially when they have pink glitter. I’m actually pretty late to the KBShimmer party, I don’t own a single one! I really feel like I’m missing out.
