Every season KBShimmer releases an exciting new collection and it’s that time again! Today I have the full KBShimmer 2014 Spring Collection to share with you. This collection is made up of 16 gorgeous polishes, 8 are cremes and 8 are a mix of glitters and holographic shades.
I’m going to start this post off with the gorgeous cremes in the collection. As much as I love glitters and holos, basic cremes are a HUGE staple for any polish enthusiast and KBShimmer’s cremes apply like butter!
For all the photos you are about to see I used KBShimmer Basic Training Base Coat and Clearly On Top Fast Dry Top Coat.
Life Rose On
Life Rose On in a medium magenta pink creme. I used 2 coats and top coat for this photo.
A Touch of Glass
A Touch Of Glass is a light aqua mint creme. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Chick Me Out
Chick Me Out is a bright yellow creme. I’m not a big fan of yellow, but this baby is perfection. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Honeydew List is a dusty pastel green. Perfect for Spring! I used 2 coats for this photo.
Sky Jinks is a medium blue creme with a slight dusty look to it. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Pansy-Monium is a red toned purple creme. I used 2 coats for this photo.
My Life’s Porpoise
My Life’s Porpoise is a medium gray creme. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Eclipse is the perfect true black creme. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Gorgeous start right? All the cremes are just amazing! Now lets move onto the glitters and holos!
Full Bloom Ahead
Full Bloom Ahead is a white crelly base with small, medium and large hex glitters in fuchsia, navy, teal, gold and orange. I used 3 coats for this photo.
Belle of the Mall
Belle of the Mall is a coral-toned pink jelly loaded with holo silver hexes in various sizes. I used 3 thin coats for this photo.
Rush Flower Traffic
Rush Flower Traffic is a metallic glitter top coat with fuchsia, gold, green, sapphire and aqua glitters in hex and dot shapes. I used 1 coat over Chick Me Out and I LOVE this pairing! Rush Flower Traffic is a perfect glitter topping and pairs well with all 8 cremes KBShimmer is releasing this Spring.
Daisy About You
Daisy About You is a pale (but still kind of bright) green crelly with neon green hex glitters among purple and lavender hexes and lavender daisy glitters. I used 3 thin coats for this photo.
Laugh Myself Lily
Laugh Myself Lily is a muted jade crelly with holo hexes in gold, pink, silver, lavender and blue as well as pink and light aqua dots. I used 3 thin coats for this photo.
Make My Gray
Make My Gray is a pale gray with turquoise, gunmetal, pale aqua and coral glitters. I used 3 thin coats for this photo.
Quick and Flirty
Quick and Flirty is a strong violet linear holo. I used 2 coats for these photos. For color accuracy refer to the photos in normal lighting (one photo above this text, and 2 photos below).
Prism Break is a linear holo top coat. I used 1 coat over Honeydew List. It doesn’t gray out the color much at all and is a perfect way to spruce up any creme shade.
Once again KBShimmer did an amazing job! From the gorgeous, rich colors to the cute “play on words” style naming. I have several favorites within this collection and all are completely wearable for me. I had no application issues to report. KBShimmer Basic Training Base Coat and Clearly On Top Fast Dry Top Coat were used in each photo.
Price: $7.50 for Cremes and $8.75 for Holos and Glitters (base coat and top coat are $5.00 each)
Where to Buy: KBShimmer Website
When To Buy: These will be available to buy on March 14th

So excited to show you tonight’s review! When Lumina Lacquer asked if I was interested in reviewing her newest Spring line, of course I wanted to! I still remember when she was in testing phases to open her shop and asked me to review 6 months before she actually opened. I wasn’t disappointed with her creations then, and I certainly am not disappointed now!
Ready to take a look at the Lumina Lacquer A Spring Space Odyssey Collection?
Final Fantasy is a glitter bomb of all circle pastel glitter, various pastel shapes (butterflies, hearts, flowers, and stars), and white matte glitter (hexes, stars, and moons) in a clear base. Also includes a dash of iridescent blue glitter. I used 2 coats over Barielle Money Talks.
Social Meteor is a mixture of light yellow, light pink, and light gray in various shapes (hexes, dots, stars, and moons) in a clear base. Also includes microglitter in light yellow, light pink, and light gray. I used 1 coat over China Glaze Pool Party.
Moon Lily is a mixture of white and bright aqua in various shapes (hexes, hearts, dots, flowers, stars, and moons) in a clear blue shimmered base. I used 1 coat over Zoya Blu.
Defying Gravity is a mixture of periwinkle, turquoise, and white in various shapes (hexes, stars, hearts, dots, moons) in a clear base. Also includes iridescent blue microglitter. I used 2 coats of Defying Gravity over Barielle My City Apartment.
Stellar Flare is a mixture of light orange, yellow, and hot orange in various shapes (hexes, dots, and stars) in a gold shimmered clear base. I used 2 coats over Zoya Cole.
Champagne Supernova (Limited Edition)
Champagne Supernova is a Limited Edition top coat within the collection! Champagne Supernova is a mixture of holographic red, metallic red, holographic orange, and holographic gold in various shapes (dots, stars, hexes, and moons). Also included are microglitters in holographic red, orange, and gold. I used 1 coat of Champagne Supernova over Barielle Fire Me Up.
Extraterrestrial (Limited Edition)
Extraterrestrial is another Limited Edition glitter top coat within the collection! Extraterrestrial is a mixture of neon green* satin, neon green* matte, and silver holographic glitters in various shapes (hexes, dots, stars, moons, diamonds, and hearts). I used 2 coats over Zoya Neely.
Lumina Lacquer does warn on her site for this shade that the neon green may slightly tint the base over time which happens with most neon glitter shades. So be aware of that.
I LOVE this collection! The colors, the combinations, the shapes – all of it! I had no application issues and I didn’t have to fish around for any of the glitters. I can’t even really pick a favorite within this collection, they are all amazing!
Price: $10.00 Each
Where to Buy: Lumina Lacquer Shop
Release Date: This collection will be available for preorder on March 9th at 1pm PST
Make sure to check out Lumina Lacquer on Facebook for more swatches, updates and information!

Today I have the 5 shades from the Sea Lore FALL-ing For Nemo Collection! This is a gorgeous collection with the cutest names!
All 5 shades are inspired by the Disney Pixar movie Finding Nemo! I’m a HUGE fan of Disney Pixar films and have no issue watching them even when my son isn’t around. Finding Nemo is one of his favorites too, so I’ve seen it a number of times.
Lets take a look at Sea Lore’s creations!
A-DORY-ble is a royal blue jelly with various sizes of yellow, black and blue hexes and lots of shimmer throughout. I used 2 thin coats for this photo and a glossy top coat.
Unfortunately this shade is sold out.
Air Nigel is a glitter top coat with a ton of gold, silver, bronze, and orange glitter as well as shimmer throughout. I used 1 coat over a tan creme.
Bruce-ally Honest is my favorite of the 5! Bruce-ally Honest is a sheer opal white crelly base with aqua shimmer, micro glitter and small white glitter shreds throughout. I used 3 thin coats for the photo, but it can easily be layered over a white creme for more opacity.
Crushin It is an olive green jelly base loaded with gold shimmer and green, brown, orange, bronze and copper hex glitters. I used 3 thin coats for this photo.
Nemo-tional is a vibrant orange jelly base loaded with gold shimmer and matte white square and rectangle glitters. I used 3 thin coats for this photo.
I think this collection is adorable and the names are perfect! I used all of the jelly/crelly shades in their natural state (alone) but they can all be used over a creme base if you want full opacity. I had no application issues or formula issues with any of these.
Price: Full Size – $8.00 Mini Size (shown) – $4.00
Where To Buy: Sea Lore Website

Tonight I have 2 new Jindie Nails polishes to show you! I’m going to have a few different Jindie Nails posts coming up this week, and I cannot wait to show them all to you!
Jindie Nails has quickly become one of my favorite indie polish lines. I adore glitter polishes, and if you want some gorgeous and unique combinations – this is definitely a shop you need to check out!
K.I.S.S. is a shade in the upcoming Recover Me Collection. The Recover Me collection is dedicated to those on all three sides of addiction. To those suffering, watching a loved one go through it, to those affected by the disease of addiction and to all the wonderful people that work in addiction specialty places like rehabs and social work, etc.
KISS is a term commonly used in rehabs and is an acronym for Keep it Simple, Stupid. As mean as it sounds, it’s true. Even if we aren’t suffering from addiction, keeping it simple is still a good tip. K.I.S.S. is a barbie pink creme base loaded with copper and bronze shimmer, copper flecks, small scarlet hexagons and pink and gold micro glitters. I used 3 thin coats for this photo and a glossy top coat.
Wifey Material is the sister polish to You Can’t Turn A Ho-lo Into A Housewife. This is a gorgeous multichrome linear holographic polish that shifts from blue to violet to a violet red with flecks of real silver and a bit of silver shimmer. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for this photo.
You can find both of these stunning polishes soon on Jindie Nails Website. You can also find Jindie Nails polish on Llarowe’s Website and Mei Mei Signatures
Also make sure to check out Jindie Nails on Facebook for more gorgeous swatches and upcoming collections!
