Summer 2016 Collection

The KBShimmer Summer 2016 Collection is releasing on June 1st, and I have all 12 gorgeous shades to share with you here!

KBShimmer Summer 2016 Collection Main

This collection contains cremes, holographics, ‘birthstone finishes’, shimmers and of course, the glitter crellies KBShimmer is so well known for! There will also be a new limited edition Summer scent that you can get ahold of in mani shots, lotions and scrubs called Margarita Lime – and it’s tangy, sweet and perfect for the season!

I’m not going to babble too much since I know most will just be scrolling down to photos anyway – so on with the show!

Along For The Tide

Don’t Play Koi

KBShimmer Summer 2016 Collection Don't Play Koi Swatch

KBShimmer Summer 2016 Collection Don’t Play Koi Swatch

Don’t Play Koi is a white crelly base with turquoise, coral and grey glitters in various sizes mixed in. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

I actually slipped a bit with this one. In a Facebook group I’m in, someone asked what colors we’d like to see group customs in, and I said I wanted to see more turquoise, grey and coral. Someone responded to me saying they wanted to see it in a crelly and I said “I think KBShimmer did one” because (even though it was sitting right in front of me) I thought it was already done by KBShimmer. When I realized my flub I went back and said “nope, I’m mistaken”

Oops.

Margarita Lime Mani Shot

Margarita Lime

The Limited Edition Summer scent is Margarita Lime! I received the mani shot of this, and it’s long used up – and oh so amazing! It’s got some tartness, a little tang and reminds you of a delicious margarita! You will be able to snag this scent in lotions, scrubs and mani shots (which I will be doing once they are live on the site!)

Thank you so much for your gorgeous swatches!
I am in love with the ILNP Ultra Metallics and the KBShimmer Birthstone polishes. Can you tell me how One Night Sand compares to ILNP Juliette and Gull, Get Real to Bulletproof Symphony?

Unfortunately I don’t own the ILNP’s to compare with!
