KBShimmer Summer 2016 Collection (Partial) ~ Swatch and Review

The new KBShimmer releases are always a big deal in the nail community. KBShimmer is known to offer quality polish at reasonable prices, and these new shades from the Summer 2016 release are no different. Let’s take a look!

Good Reef!
Good Reef! is described as a stunning light peachy coral color with blue shimmer that pops in certain lights. I was so excited to see this color. This is what I had hoped for in Orly Trendy, which completely missed the mark. But Good Reef! has a smooth easy to use formula. A little streaky on the first coat, but 3 coats smooths it out perfectly. Shown here is 3 coats with glossy top coat. Check out that blue shimmer! 

Along for the Tide
Along for the Tide is described as an inky blue polish that is jam packed with shimmery micro flecks that shift from pink to violet and blue to purple. A linear holo finish pops in bright light. Cobalt blue is such a popular color and this one is stunning. It’s like flakies swimming in a deep ocean, but when you step outside the holo makes you gasp! My swatches show 2 coats with glossy top coat. 

That’s Nude to Me
That’s Nude to Me is described as a pink toned nude with a subtle linear holo and a soft platinum shimmer for the perfect summer neutral. I love neutral holos and this is undoubtedly the perfect rosy holo for summer. I used 3 coats for my swatches, but you could probably get by on 2 coats. Glossy top coat. 

Playing with the Buoys
Playing with the Buoys is described as a soft, green mint with blue undertones.  A smooth creamy color that covers perfectly in 2 coats. Perfect for summertime! 2 coats with glossy top coat. 

I have never been disappointed with any KBShimmer polish, and that holds true with these as well. All beautiful shades, ranging from simple to complex, with truly perfected formulas. 

The summer collection consists of a total of 12 new shades, which will be releasing June 1. They will retail for $9.25 each. Available at KBShimmer.com, Harlow.com, LiveLovePolish.com, and Amazon.com
