Kbshimmer's Spring 2015 Collection Review & Nail Art

Press Samples

Hello darlings! Today I'm excited to share some of Kbshimmer's new spring 2015 collection. Today I have 9 shades to share with you to get you in the mood for spring and I know some of you can't wait to get rid of all the snow. So let's check out the 9 beauties I have to share with you. - One which I just noticed is MIA in the group photos...
 First let's start out with the crellies.

First up is Wind Swarm.
Like the petals floating around on a blustery wind, Wind Swarm has a mix of purple, gold, white and pink glitters, while a hint of micro glitter offers a bit of sparkle to enjoy in the sun. Based on the Spring 2015 Pantone color, Aquamarine, Wind Swarm features a pale sky blue base. 3 Coats Recommended.

Wind Swarm is such a fun cute spring polish with it's red circles and squares. I like how there is so much going on yet it's not overly overwhelming, it flows together like the description a gust of wind full of spring time flowers.
Now we have I'm so Sweet Pea.
The palest of purples bases set off an explosion of glitters in pink, mint, purple and turquoise. Best layered in 2-3 coats.

When I see this polish I think of spring time, sweet peas, flowers, and lotions(the smell). I love the turquoise and purple glitters in this polish the most. And since it was a light and sweet polish, I thought of flowers and the smell of sweet pea's so decided to try to do a stamp with it. Not 100% happy with the white polish I used, it didn't want to clean up but over all I kinda like, sorta, but I do like how I'm So Sweet Pea looks veiled in white.
Next up we have Funky Cold Panita.
Like a long forgotten copper statue turned blue green in color, this polish features a cool turquoise green base, with pops of metallic copper, blue and purple. 3 Coats Recommended.

This screams winter is over, even if it's not really yet. This is a bold polish, perfect for that accent nail or that pop of colors for that nail design. I chose to use some of Kbshimmer's spring nail vinyls to create that type of look I'm talking about.
Aren't these vinyls amazing? And Funky Cold Panita is that perfect pop for these nail vinyls. These spring nail vinyls are perfect for spring, with the flowers, bunnies, eggs, flowers and more.
Next up we have Meow or Never.
 When winter is almost over, and spring is near, I crave the warmth of newborn kittens, enjoy the last days of wool sweaters, and foggy, overcast mornings. Based on the Pantone spring color Glacier Gray , this polish is a very pale gray, almost white in color with pops of purple, gray, periwinkle and sky blue. 3 Coats Recommended.

Meow or Never has to be my favorite out of the crellies. I love the hints of gray in this and all the purples and blues, it's such a cute polish and the name is cute to boot. With a name like Meow or Never I had to get in touch with my cat lady self and add some kitty cats to these nails.
For the last of the crellies we have Cool Hand Cuke.
 This pale minty green polish is loaded with pastel glitters in circles, triangles, stars and hexes. A touch of holographic sparkle completes this pastel polish. 3 Coats Recommended.

This polish for me reminds me of Saved By the Bell, does it not? Am I crazy? I love it! It reminds me of spring break, warm weather, and school. I love all that is going on in this polish.
Now onto the holo polishes, let's begin with Blush Money.
Based on the 2015 Pantone Color, Strawberry Ice, this this peachy rose colored polish shows off gold shimmer indoors, while outside, a linear holographic rainbow shines. Best in 2-3 coats.

Blush Money had to be the shyest one to capture. It has this golden holo feel to it that it's just like a blush, it creeps up on you.
Next we have Thistle Be the Day.
 A as child, picking wild flowers was a coveted pastime, until the dreaded thistle lured us in with its deceptive beauty. A pale pinkish purple, this thistle inspired polish is all beauty and no tricks as it shines in the sun with a linear holographic rainbow. Even indoors, this ultra-holo polish shows off the best spring has to offer. 2 coats recommended.

Isn't this a signature spring color with that beautiful Kbshimmer Holo?!
Next up we have Blue-d Lines.
When the air turns warm, and there is not a cloud to be seen, the sky is always the most beautiful color aquamarine. This ultra-holo polish is inspired by those perfect days. Pale blue in color, this cool toned polish shines with linear holographic sparkle. Best in 2 coats.

Oh Blue-d Lines, how I love this color! It leaves me drooling.
Last of the beauties that I have is Ins And Sprouts.
Like a new bud popping through the soil, this pale green citron colored polish is alive with linear holographic shine. This ultra-holo polish is best is 2 coats.

I'm really liking In and Sprouts, I find it's my favorite out of the group of holos and I think it's because I don't actually have any green holos and this is gorgeous. I just had to stamp over this and rock this color longer.
So over all I really like this collection, it's so cute and sweet and it makes me so ready for spring! Formula wise Kbshimmer always knocks it out of the park for me and like always I topped all the polishes with Kbshimmer's Clearly On Top topcoat. There are 3 others in this collection that I'm going to purchase 2 more crellies and a beautiful white creme.

These are available now and can be purchased on Kbshimmer's site.

The crellies and holos retail for $8.75, the creme retails for $7.50 and the nail vinyl sheets retail for $5.00.

So make sure to check out these polishes and let me know what you think. Do these scream spring? Are there any you need to add to you list? Let me know.

Also make sure to check out Kbshimmer on social media.
