KBShimmer Summer 2016 (10 of 12)

* 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
One Night Sand is copper/rose gold metallic flake with pops of holo. (2 coats)

Playing With The Buoys
Playing With The Buoys is a soft pastel sage creme with mint hues and blue undertones. (2 coats)

Good Reef!
Good Reef peachy coral with blue and pink shimmer.  (3 coats)

Ready For A Good Lime 
Ready For A Good Lime is a bright pastel lime creme. (2 coats)

Along For The Tide
Along The Tide is an inky blue holo with micro flecks and color shifting shimmer. (2 coats)

How Low Can You Flamingo?
How Low Can You Flamingo is a hot flamingo pink creme. (2 coats)

That's Nude To Me
That's Nude To Me is a pinky-beige holo.

Mai Tai One On
Mai Tai One On is a soft lemonade yellow with yellow gold and green shimmer. (3 coats)

Gull, Get Real!
Gull, Get Real! is lilac grey-toned purple metallic flake with pops of holo. (2 coats(

Suit The Breeze
Suit The Breeze is a periwinkle blue with shimmery pink and violet micro flakes. (2 coats)

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
Happy Monday!
