Tonight I have the KBShimmer Spring 2016 collection to share with you!

This collection is actually split into 2 smaller 7 piece collections, but I’m showing all 14 in one post. There is a fairly standard Spring collection with a little holo and some crelly glitters KBShimmer is so well known for, and the second collection is the Mega Flame collection with sparkles like crazy!

First I’ll show the Spring portion of the collection, then we’ll move onto the Mega Flame collection!

Hello Dahlia

Hello Dahlia

Hello Dahlia is a dusty peachy orange crelly base with gold micro holo glitters and micro flakes. Based on the Pantone 2016 Spring/Summer shade Peach Echo. This wanted to photograph like a neon, even though it’s not really, so it’s not quite this bright in person.

I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Ok so those 7 were the “official” KBShimmer Spring 2016 Collection – and now it’s time for the Mega Flame collection half of the post!

KBShimmer Mega Flame Collection

KBShimmer Mega Flame

The KBShimmer Mega Flame Collection consists of 7 gorgeous tinted bases packed with holographic glitters. If you loved Alloy Matey, I Feel Gourd-geous and Sun & Games, then the Mega Flame Collection is for you.

I took a few extra shots of these shades to try to capture the insane sparkle within these polishes.

All polishes reach the full coverage point in just 2 coats. They are LIGHTLY textured without top coat (if you prefer to wear them that way) and aren’t rough enough to snag on clothing (unless you are wearing something super duper delicate). I used 1 coat of Clearly On Top Fast Dry top coat for all these photos and it smoothed them over j

Ripe For The Pink-ing

Ripe For The Pinking

Ripe For The Pink-ing is a raspberry pink tinted base packed with silver holographic microglitter. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This shade photographed a bit brighter and a touch oranger than it is in person.

KBShimmer Spring 2016 Collection Overview

KBShimmer Spring 2016 Full Collage

Ok, I’m going to break this down by each mini collection within the collection. Yeah I know it’s not really “mini” being 7 polishes – but if you know KBShimmer – that is ‘mini’ for them.

Spring 2016 Collection – Beautiful mix of colors and finishes with great application. My top picks are Peony Pincher, Purr-fectly Paw-some and Prints Charming.

Mega Flame Collection – You. Need. These. Seriously – if you love sparkle and were fans of Alloy Matey, I Feel Gourd-geous and Sun & Games then these won’t disappoint you. While Night Bright is my favorite – all 7 are worth grabbing.

Price: $9.25 Each

Where To Buy: KBShimmer Website and Harlow & Co

Release Date: March 15th, 2016

  1. I’ve been missing the KB Classic crellys. Looks like prints charming will be perfect though :)

    • Prints Charming is perfection! And I agree – while I love the holos, her crellies are what drew me in 4 years ago <3

  2. Hi Lisa, I also live outside of San Francisco I’m also 33, and I have a lil boy also!!! Lol! But I loved Pools Paradise!!! So pretty!!! Peony pincher too !!!!

  3. Melissa Nichols Reply

    Stunning swatches!! I agree, the Mega Flames are MUST HAVE. There’s just something about micro holo glitter that makes me swoon!

  4. Ok, yup. I have to unfollow you. Your incredibly gorgeous swatches are costing me so much money!! :D

  5. I am ready to hop on the Spring collection now.Purr-fectly Pawsome is so gorgeous! I wish that we didn’t have to wait until the 15th!

  6. Wow, such lovely swatches, thank you! I must tell you; I just recently found out about your blog, and it is now one of my primary references when I want to see a colour before I buy it online! And I now follow you regularly. Your swatches are always gorgeous!
    A question now: is it just me or does “Peony Pincher” resemble a lot to China Glaze “When Stars Collide”? Less purple and more pink, maybe? What do you think?
    Thank you in advance for your opinion (if you have one on this :) ).

    • Thank you so much! Your comment really made my day!

      When Stars Collide is a lot darker. I would say Peony Pincher would be the result if China Glaze Astro Hot & Get Outta My Space had a baby polish.

    Holy Moly! I really like the two holos from the “official” collection and the entire Mega Fame collection.

  8. Prints Charming is MY FAVORITE. I have been wearing it for a week now. It’s pretty great! <3 Great swatches! <3

  9. Those holo polishes are so stunning, KB Shimmer really outdoes itself with those!! I want them all, I love how shimmery they are!

  10. Oh wow, there are already so many KB shimmer polishes I want and now I need to add almost this entire line to the list. I think I need a second job just to pay for my polish habit. Thanks for sharing your swatches of these!!

  13. Like I always do – I’m bookmarking this page… I was looking forward to seeing these because KB always has such gorgeous selections.

  14. The holos and Hello Dahlia need to come live with me. I am seriously laughing at the name I Wet My Plants – a candidate for best polish title EVER!

  15. Shhhhhh….,do you hear that?? It’s the sound of my wallet crying…
