* I received the following products in exchange for my honest review.
I have the KBShimmer Summer 2016 collection to share with you today. When I opened up these polishes I knew this collection was going to be a favorite mine. There are so many great colors and as always KBShimmer offers a lot of variety. I have 10 of the 12 polishes to share with you today. I did not get the white crellies because I don't tend to wear white crellies often, but I have the rest. These will be released on June 1st. Let's get started!
One Night Sand
Playing With The Buoys
Ready For A Good Lime
Along For The Tide
How Low Can You Flamingo?
That's Nude To Me
Mai Tai One On
Gull, Get Real!
Suit The Breeze
Colors: I think KBShimmer's summer collections are my favorite, and I think this maybe my favorite KBShimmer collection ever. I love the mix of nudes, pastels, and neons in this collection. I think the colors are perfect for summer. I also love the variety of finishes. I think the shimmers and micro flakes paired with the pastel-like colors is very original and something I've been wanting to see for a long time. The metallic flakes are stunners too!
Formula: I thought 8 of the 10 here had excellent top notch formulas. The formulas I had challenges with were Get Reef! and Mai Tai One On. I found these applied streaky and uneven. They were trickier to apply and did not have the even finish as the others.
Price: These are all going to be $9.25 each and will be on KBShimmer's website on June 1st!
Overall: I think this is an excellent collection. As far as colors go there isn't a dud in the bunch. I said it above, but I will declare this is my favorite KBShimmer collection! The formulas on Get Reef! and Mai Tai One On are not my favorite, but their uniqueness somewhat make up for it. One Night Sand is my absolute favorite polish of this collection. It's the perfect metallic nude that I see myself wearing a lot this summer. It will 100% be on my Top 25 of 2016 list. There is a spoiler for you! I also love Playing With The Buoys, Suit The Breeze, That's Nude To Me, and How Low Can You Flamingo. I'd give it 5 golden paint splatter if it weren't for the formulas on the two tricky ones, otherwise this is a fantastic collection!
My Rating: 5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
