KBShimmer Summer Vacation Collection

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

Have I got a treat for you all! The KBShimmer Summer Vacation Collection is coming on July 28th, and if you loved We Make Your Dreams Come Blue, then this whole collection will catch your eye!

We Make Your Dreams Come Blue was created for the last Polish Con and just about everyone fell in love with it’s inner shimmer glow that came alive on your nails. This whole collection was created with a similar glowy vibe to it, but in a variety of colors.

Each polish has a jelly like base packed with gorgeous shimmer and holo flakes in a variety of summery shades.

Let’s take a look!

Flock This Way

Flock This Way is a raspberry pink base with coppery shimmer and silver holo flakes packed in. The coppery shimmer can be seen when light hits, but it also gives the raspberry pink base an almost duochrome shifting look. You can see on my nails that the tips almost look reddish while the bottom half of the nails is the raspberry pink. It’s beautiful.

I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Shady Beaches

The name on this one cracks me up!

Shady Beaches is a peachy copper base with rose gold shimmer and silver holographic flakes packed in. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Squeeze The Day

Anyone who’s read my blog for awhile will know that yellows aren’t my thing (neither are greens really – but I prefer green to yellow!) Squeeze The Day is an acceptable yellow for me.

Squeeze The Day is a gorgeous vibrant lemon yellow with coppery orange shimmer and silver holo flakes mixed in. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Kiwi Real

Speaking of greens… this is also an acceptable green. It’s quite pretty on.

Kiwi Real is a kiwi green with grass green shimmer and silver holographic flakes. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

No Wave!

No Wave! is a deep turquoise base with blue shimmer and silver holo flakes. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Hashtag You’re It!

Hashtag You’re It! is a beautiful medium grape purple base with shimmer that shifts from a turquoise blue shade to deep purple and is packed with silver holo flakes. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Berry Chill

Berry Chill is an orchid pinky purple base with violet shimmer and silver holo flakes. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

I’m Onyx

Last up we have I’m Onyx! I’m Onyx is a black base with incredible blue to purple shifting shimmer and silver holo flakes mixed in. Since the base is so dark, the shimmer shift really kind of pops out at you even more.

2 coats and top coat for these photos.

KBShimmer Summer Vacation Collection Overview

I was one of the people who fell in love with We Make Your Dreams Come Blue, so I am really enjoying a full collection with the same look in a variety of colors.

I used 2 coats and Clearly On Top to finish the job for all of these photos. Depending on your top coat, you might need 2 coats of top coat to completely smooth your mani. While they aren’t chunky, the more layers you do the more holo bits, which increases the chance you’ll need a thicker layer of top coat for a smooth finish. I only did 2 coats and I didn’t need more than 1 though.

I am loving this collection. The shimmer in Dreams Come Blue is otherworldly. My favorites are Squeeze the Day, I’m Onyx and Flock This Way.

3 of my top picks! They are so incredibly beautiful!

Katherine July 16, 2017 - 9:30 pm

Hashtag You’re It! is my favourite but this is an awesome collection and honestly I wouldn’t be against picking up all of them haha. I love collections where the formula/composition is the same but in different colours, if that makes sense!

KBS can never do any wrong. But her nudes are always the ones that scream my name! Shady Beaches for sure!

Never Say Die Beauty July 17, 2017 - 6:47 am

I think this is a beautiful collection. I adore I’m Onyx, the Kiwi shade and Shady Beaches but sometimes needy to do two coats of topcoat is a tiny bit off-putting for this lazy gal.

Polish Those Nails July 17, 2017 - 8:09 am

Wow. This entire collection is absolutely gorgeous!! I think I need all of these haha!

Judy July 17, 2017 - 8:44 am

I love this collection so much, def I’m Onyx is one of my favs!

Erika July 17, 2017 - 12:05 pm

These are so bright and juicy and I love the extra sparkle. KB Shimmer just does it right, every time.

Nichole C July 17, 2017 - 5:12 pm

I am feeling that yellow, surprisingly.

When you finally launch your YT, I want to see your nail polish collex!

Anastasia July 18, 2017 - 8:08 am

Love the idea of putting glitter into shimmery formulas :o

I’ve been wearing No Wave and Berry Chill nonstop since I got them! This is one of my all time favorite collections!

Katie Nystuen July 20, 2017 - 6:44 pm

This collection is so cool. I love the finish.

Briana August 27, 2017 - 10:44 am

Okay, I was initially on the fence about this collection because I have sooooo many similar colors. But your swatches have sold me. As soon as is economically responsible, I’m getting a few of these. Thank you for always having spot-on lighting. It makes it so much easier to see the variation of the color tones and shimmers. Though I really ought to have a label for polishes called “Lisa Made Me Buy It.”
