KBShimmer Early Summer 2014 Collection Part 2 Swatches & Review

Hi folks, I'm back today with the second half of the KBShimmer Early Summer collection. This half has three jelly cremes and three texture glitters. I used KBShimmer's pH Balancing Prep, Basic Training base coat and Clearly On Top top coat for all of these swatches (an in depth review of those coming soon).

First up is Let's Not Coral, a pinky coral creme with an awesome jellyish quality. This went on without a hitch and dried super shiny. I tend to love colors like this anyway, but I think this would appeal to those non-pink lovers too because it's so pretty! This is two coats.

Next is Right as Reign, described as a deep bold purple but it pulls very blue on me. I wouldn't have thought it was purple except for looking at the website's description of it. I would say it's "blurple" if anything, even though I loathe that word haha. This formula is seriously flawless. Two coats.

And here is Low & Be Bold, a bright cobalt blue with that same awesome jellyish creme formula. I did not want to take this off once I had it on! I thought it was a dead ringer for Rescue Beauty Lounge's IKB:2012 but it's a bit brighter. (I'll do a comparison post on that soon.) I can't say enough good things about this "near creme" formula! Two coats.

This is the first of the textured glitters, Too Pop to Handle. These apply very easily for having as much glitter as they do. They dry to a matte lightly textured finish but you can also add topcoat for a smooth look. I think this one is the most textured out of the three. This is a neonish red toned purple with holographic glitters in magenta, violet, aqua and pink. I used two coats here.

She Twerks Out is possibly my favorite polish name of all time, hilarious. It's a turquoise blue filled with holographic glitters in teal, lime green, aqua and violet. I really enjoy this one, but I couldn't get it to photograph very well so I apologize. Two coats.

And last is my favorite of the collection, Partners In Lime. It's a bright lime green packed with holographic glitters in gold, lime green and aqua. I can't tell you how much I love this polish, it's seriously amazing. Super unique and so fun! I used two coats.

You can get all these polishes and more from the KBShimmer website. The cremes are $7.50 and the glitters are $8.75 per bottle. So what do you think of this collection? Do you like the first half (the holos) or this half better? I really enjoyed all of them and would say that there are some must-haves in the bunch. See ya next time!
