Hello everyone! I am so thrilled to be reviewing some KBShimmer polishes! These are my first ones from this brand, and I am sold...I will be ordering more! =) I have three shades from the KBShimmer Spring 2013 Collection to share today, as well as a review of their new Clearly On Top 2-free top coat! This collection is set to release on February 15, 2013! Let's just go ahead and jump right into these swatches!
First up is KBShimmer Squared Away, a mix of blue, pink, and holographic silver squares and microglitter in a clear base. Here I have layered one coat of Squared Away over OPI You're Such A Budapest (from Euro Centrale) with Clearly On Top top coat! Clearly On Top really does smooth things out nicely. The formula, application, and coverage on this one are great!
These polishes all have phenomenal application, formula and coverage! I am so thrilled with my first KBShimmer experience. The Clearly On Top top coat is extremely shiny and dries quickly. With Clearly On Top, my nails are entirely smooth. The top coat contains no formaldehyde or toluene, but does contain DBP, which contributes to the thick, smooth, extremely shiny surface that won't yellow or shrink your polish. Clearly On Top works quite nicely with these glitters, but if you are concerned about its 2-free status, there are tons of 3-free top coats out there (but keep in mine Seche Vite contains toluene).
KBShimmer polishes are available on their website [here] for $8.75. The Clearly On Top top coat will be $5 for a full size 15mL bottle. If you are outside of the US, you can order KBShimmer on Harlow & Co [here]! Follow KBShimmer on Facebook [here] for more info and updates!
