Confession. I had an argument with my 3-year old the other day. She asked me if it was summer time and I told her it was. Because, uh…it’s 95 degrees outside. Feels like summer to me!
“No! It’s not summer, mama.”
“It is, baby.”
“NO, it’s nooooot!”
I let it go because no one really wins in an argument with a 3-year old. And just as I started to draft up this post, I did a quick Google search on when Summer starts and what the heck, y’all?! It’s STILL Spring. Craziness! We are just about a week away from Summer but I’m feeling dumb for arguing with my child. And I feel even dumber for being wrong about it. Ha! It has been a hot little minute since I’ve featured some KBShimmer beauties and when these press samples landed on my doorstep, well…I was thrilled!
There are 12 stunning colors in this collection and I’ve got 7 of them to show off.
Along For The Tide is a linear holo inky blue with pink/purple flecks that shift depending on how on how the light hits it. This is my favorite color of the bunch because…it’s BLUE! We don’t have water this blue in Central Florida, but South Florida? Yes girl…the deep waters out there are stunning and this polish has me excited for my trip down South.
Neon Me is what KBShimmer calls a crelly (creme/jelly…I LOVE that term) that looks sheer in the bottle but you can easily get an opaque finish with 2 heavy coats. Festive and fun, this polish has neon green, blue, pink, purple and yellow circles submerged in a creamy base. I’m such a fan of this baby.
That’s Nude To Me is a pink toned nude that I didn’t think I’d like. If it weren’t for the holo, it would totally be a Grandma shade but what do know? I’m really digging how this looks against my skin. I also love how easily it applies to the nails. You really only need 2 thin coats to reach a nice opaque finish with this baby.
Ready For A Good Lime wouldn’t photograph perfectly for me but such is the case with lime green cremes. Which, by the way, is my first. I’m shocked at how I didn’t experience any streaking with this one and it really is such a fabulous shade for a summer collection.
Good Reef! is a peachy coral that I guarantee that will look against all skin tones. Corals are tricky for many but I think the blue shimmer in this one will make it so fitting for everyone. I am such a fan of this shade on the toes.
Playing With The Buoys is the kind of shade that you’ll struggle finding in stores. I rarely a soft pastel sage and so this one is just so nice to come across. It’s a bit streaky so a good 2 strong coats will make everyone happy.
These lovelies were sent to me from KBShimmer but I’ve already purchased some of the others in their Summer collection. I am such a sucked for the quality and these polishes and we’re always seeing something that hasn’t been done before. Each polish retails for $9.25 and they are SO worth the investment.
Oh, and did I mention that I finally got to try a Mani Shot?
I’ve heard so many great things about these bath bombs for manicures. I’m shocked at how well they managed to get the Margarita Lime scent in this one. After you’ve soaked your hands, you are left with cocoa and shea butter, jojoba and olive oils floating all around and boom, you’ve got instant moisturization for the hands and nails. These retail for $1.95 and they’re such relaxing and fun little experiences.
The collection is now live on the site. My recommendations? It’s tricky but How Low Can You Flamingo and Along For The Tide are soooo must haves!
Which shade are you loving?
