Touch of Glass
Touch of Glass is a soft aqua mint creme with a subtle shimmer. (3 coats) *NOTE: Shimmer is virtually undetectable on nail in real life. 

Touch of Glass w/ Prism Break
Prism Break is a subtle linear holographic top coat (I used one coat over the bases in all the swatches above).

Color: This is a excellent collection of staple creme shades that every collection needs. That being said, some of these are not unique shades, but all are excellent as far as color pigmentation and saturation. I also like the mix of the bolder/brighter shades with softer shades. Prism Break is an gorgeous soft holo top coat, that stands out on dark shades, and gives soft touch of bling to the lighter shades. 

Formula: The formula on this selection was creamy and overall a good. The darker shades needed only 2 coats, while I found the lighter shades could use 3. Chick Me Out being yellow, was a bit tricky, but I was able to get it even and opaque in 3 coats. 

Price: All the creme shades are $7.50. Prism Break is $8.75. These all can be found on KBShimmer's website

Overall: I really enjoyed these cremes. They are pigmented, the formula is creamy and easy to apply, and this is a great balance of colors for a collection. The colors are not the most unique, but I think these would be excellent foundation polishes for any collection. My personal faves are Touch of Glass, Pansy-Monium, My Life's Porpoise, and Life Rose On. 

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
