KBShimmer Spring 2014 collection

Press Sample

The new KBShimmer Spring Collection for 2014 has been announced and is set to go on sale later this week, on March 14th.  There will be two parts to this new Spring collection, The Glitters & Holos, and The Creams.  Christy will be releasing 16 new shades in all and I have 4 of them for you to preview today.  Follow the jump for swatches of all 4.

First up, from The Glitters & Holos, is a violet holographic polish called Quick And Flirty.  Quick and Flirty is a linear holo, shown here with two coats and no top coat.

Application was smooth and easy with this polish.  Two coats was definitely enough to make it completely opaque and match the look of it in the bottle.  Kristy suggests adding a third coat if you'd like a deeper lilac shade.

Next up, also from The Glitters and Holos, is a coral toned pink jelly with holographic silver glitter called Belle Of The Mall.

Belle Of The Mall contains holographic silver glitter in multiple sizes.  I had no issues with the glitters, I got a nice mixture of all the different sized glitters with each brush stroke and it was fully opaque with three thin coats.  I followed that up with one coat of Glossy Glam top coat.

Now from The Creams, Chick Me Out is a bright yellow shade which was fully opaque in 3 coats.

You could probably get away with only two but I had just a few sheer spots, so I used a 3rd coat to even everything out.  It was definitely no where near as streaky as some other yellow polishes I have worn though, so I was really impressed with the coverage on this one.

Finally, from The Glitters & Holos, here is the lone clear-based glitter topper of the collection, Rush Flower Traffic (1 coat over Chick Me Out with top coat).

Rush Flower Traffic is quite the mix of glitter.  It contains hex and circle glitters in shades of fuchsia, gold, green, sapphire, and aqua.  Application was pretty easy.  I did get better results with more a dabbing technique, rather than normal brush strokes, but still a simple application in just one coat.  And it has a great mixture of all different sized glitter, in both the hexes and circles.

You can purchase these 4 shades, and the rest of the collection, starting March 14th at  Polishes from The Glitters & Holos are expected to be priced at $8.75 each, and polishes from The Creams are expected to be priced at $7.50 each.  Be sure to follow KBShimmer on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates and more swatches.  And while you're at it, stop by my Instagram account as well, AllThisPolish, and say Hi!  Thanks for reading!
