KBShimmer Spring 2013 Collection Swatches/Review

Hey everyone and happy Friday! I'm SO glad that it's the weekend. School seems to be dragging even more than usual now that I'm in my last semester. If you're as ready for Spring as I am, I have some beautiful KBShimmer polishes for Spring 2013 to share with you! There are 9 shades in this collection and they come in KBShimmer's new printed bottles! They are so professional!

Lottie Dottie is a mix of turquoise and magenta glitter in a white base. There is round glitter (my fav!) and super tiny bar glitters in here. This one needed three coats to be opaque, but had a great formula. Honestly, all the KBShimmers I've ever used have great formulas.

Where My Peeps At is a light yellow crelly (cream jelly) that has round and micro glitter in soft, Easter-y colors. This needed three coats for opacity. I love the name!

Spring Training is one of my favorites; it's a pastel green crelly with purple, pink, yellow, blue, and green glitter. This one has a little surprise: it has a light floral scent! Nothing that will make your head spin, but it's there! This was three coats.

Iris My Case is a pastel lavender crelly packed full of purple, blue, magenta, and silver glitter. The glitter payoff in this is amazing! I used three coats here.

Get Clover It is an emerald green jelly with micro shimmer and green, yellow, and turquoise round glitter. I did three coats of it on my own for swatching purposes, but you could easily layer this over a matching base for a more opaque look.

Pastel Me More is another one of my very favorites. This is a glitter topper consisting of pastel glitter! I layered two coats of it over OPI My Vampire is Buff.

I Got a Crush on Blue is very similar in finish to Get Clover It, although it is a royal blue jelly and has much larger glitter in it. This one has giant holographic silver hex glitters in it, as well as smaller hex glitter and micro shimmer. This is three coats, but again, you could easily layer this over a matching base for opacity.

Squared Away is a glitter topper with a bunch of different sized square glitter in purple, blue, and pink shades. This is two coats over OPI Vant to Bite My Neck?.

Last but not least is A Dot Mess, a mixture of round black and magenta glitter with micro round and bar glitter. This is two coats over OPI Suzi's Hungary Again.

All of my swatches are shown with one coat of KBShimmer's Clearly on Top, a great quick dry topcoat. These shades go on sale today on KBShimmer's website and retail for $8.75. If you have been hesitant about buying from indies before, please take my advice and take the jump with these! KBShimmer makes awesome polish with none of the problems that some other handmade polishes seem to have. Do these scream "Spring!" to you?
