KBShimmer Summer 2013 Collection Swatches and Review

Press Sample

KBShimmer is getting ready to release her Summer 2013 Collection and like her past collections, she definitely didn’t disappoint!


The KBShimmer Summer Collection consists of 9 new polishes with a beautiful range of color!  From neon matte polish to milky bases, there is a little something for everyone!  These are set to release June 1st!  Check out the bottom of the post for more release info!

Take a look!

Don’t Pink Twice:


Don’t Pink Twice is a gorgeous neon magenta pink matte polish with subtle blue iridescent shimmer within.  I was actually really surprised my camera was able to pick up on the shimmer!  My favorite polish of the collection hands down.  I loved all of them, but this one… this one is just amazing.  I used 2 coats for this photo.  No top coat because I love it as matte.



This is seriously the mother of all pink matte polishes.

24 Carrot Bold:


24 Carrot Bold is the other neon matte polish in the collection!  24 Carrot Bold is a neon orange with gold shimmer throughout.  What you see is what you get!  The gold shimmer really does stand out against the orange.  Beautiful combo!  I used 2 coats for this photo.  No top coat.





Grayscale is the only glitter top coat in the collection.  It is a mix of black and white hex and square glitters in a clear base.  I used 1 coat of Grayscale over Don’t Pink Twice, and I love the bright background with it.  I topped the mani off with KBShimmer Clearly on Top fast dry top coat.



Blinded By The Bright:


Blinded By The Bright is a perfect name.  This is a neon yellow base with a rainbow assortment of hex glitters scattered throughout.  I used 3 coats for this photo and Clearly On Top to make it glossy!



It’s Razz-ical:


It’s Razz-ical is a raspberry jelly base with holographic hex glitters in magenta, silver and pink.  I only needed 2 coats for this photo and a glossy top coat.  Stunning color!  It is packed with glitter, but 1 coat of top coat smoothed it all out.



The Dancing Green:


The Dancing green is a bright green base which is slightly blue tinted (it really is, but my camera refused to pick up the blue for some reason…) with fuchsia, deep blue,  green and chartreuse glitters mixed in.  I only needed 2 coats for this photo and a glossy top coat.



Totally Tubular:


Totally Tubular is a blue-green crelly base with fuchsia circle glitters, fuchsia micro slices, aqua circle glitters and dark blue hex glitters.  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for this photo!



What’s Your Damage?


What’s Your Damage? is a white crelly polish with neon green, neon pink, and black glitters.  I used Sinful Colors in Wisp for a white base and then 2 coats of What’s Your Damage? over it.  Loving the mix of neon glitter with black glitter!



Pimp My Pride:


Pimp My Pride is going to be part of my 4th of July mani this year!  A white crelly base with red and blue hex glitters in different sizes as well as red and blue mixro bar glitter mixed in.  I used 3 coats of Pimp My Pride on its own with a glossy top coat to seal it in!



Overall, this is a must have collection!  If you are on a budget and can only snag a few – I HIGHLY recommend Don’t Pink Twice, 24 Carrot Bold and It’s Razz-ical!  But if you can grab all 9 – do it!  I had absolutely no application issues on any of the polishes!  All of the polishes with glitter in them had the perfect amount of glitter, as always!  No fishing around for any glitter and none of the glitter clumped up or made it hard to work with!

The entire KBShimmer Summer Collection will be available on June 1st through the KBShimmer Website as well as on Harlow & Co!

$8.75 each on KBShimmer.com
