KBShimmer Spring Polishes

***Press Sample***

Happy Tuesday, all!  I hope you're starting to maybe see a glimmer of Spring wherever you are, especially if you've been dealing with snow!

Today I've got three polishes from the Spring Collection by KBShimmer to share with you - you know, in case you haven't already picked up some of these beauties ^_^

First up is Meow Or Never:

Meow Or Never is a lovely light gray crelly packed with various sized matte and shiny purple, grey, periwinkle, blue, and white glitters.  This polish was based on Pantone's spring color "Glacier Gray."  Meow Or Never applied very smoothly and evenly and was opaque in three thin coats.  It dried to a shiny finish in under 5 minutes, though I added a coat of HK Girl Glisten & Glow to help even it out a bit.

Next up is a polish that I'd seen mixed reviews on - mostly negative, and one blogger even calling it "milky glitter puke" :P  I'll let you decide for yourself what you think, but I gotta say, I was (surprisingly) pleasantly taken with this polish - "To Peach His Own:"

To Peach His Own is described as a pale peach crelly with holographic glitters in lime green, gold, violet, and magenta colors.  This polish had great application as well, with a nice even spreading of glitters.  Opaque in 3 thin coats, it also dried in under five minutes to a shiny finish (again, one topcoat in the pictures).  I personally kind of love this color - it's very antique, and reminds me of tea cups I used to have as a little girl :)  It's very Springy to me - a nice neutral peach tone with all those various colored glitters reminds me of flowers.  The name of the polish is very fitting for its character :)

Last but not least is my favorite of the three (and I'm sure you're not surprised at all by it!) - "Thistle Be The Day:"

Here are some outdoor shots to really show off that holo goodness:

Thistle Be The Day is described as a pale pinkish purple linear holographic polish.  Opaque in 2 coats, it applied smooth as butter and dried in record timing - under 3 minutes.  An added topcoat really made that holo pop!  This polish has one of the best holographic formulas I've come across yet - I definitely recommend it for all you fellow holo lovers!

I decided to stamp a nice Spring pattern over Thistle Be The Day using the oh-so-perfect stamping polish color "Snowberry" by M Polish and a flower pattern from plate 124 by MoYou Nails.

You can find the Spring collection at KBShimmer's online store here.  You can also follow the brand's Facebook PageInstagram Account, and Twitter Page for updates on new products and sales.

So what do you think of these polishes?  Did you pick up any of the Spring collection when it first launched?


Polishes sent by the company for review purposes.  My opinion remains 100% honest.
