Indie Saturday - KBShimmer Summer 2013 Collection Swatches/Review

I have a special treat for today's Indie Saturday!  Instead of one polish I have three!  I am so excited to share three of the new KBShimmer summer shades with you!!

First some information about the collection.

KBShimmer is excited to announce the addition of 9 new colors to their 3-Free glitter polish line and an expansion to their nail prep line.  Owner Christy Rose says “With warm weather and sandals popping up, June is the perfect time for bright, bold colors and patriotic themes to celebrate a fun and exciting summer.”

The summer lineup includes one glitter top coat, two glitter crellys in a white base and six bright, bold polishes, two in a matte finish.  KBShimmer will also be expanding their nail care line to include two scented cuticle oils and liquid nail prep. “Our new line was created to play off the bolder palette of summer, some inspired by the 80’s and 90s, but also to celebrate the patriotic season. One of our polishes plays off the color of the year, Emerald Green, and will ease people into the summer while two others were inspired by the fall 2013 Pantone colors Koi and Vivacious. Both will make for an easy transition through the summer and into the fall.  We are also excited to unveil two scented cuticle oils in an easy-applicator pen.  We hope to inspire and motivate people to go out in the sun and show off their nails!” says Rose.

First up is Pimp My PrideThis white based polish features metallic red and blue glitters. Best worn in three coats, or 1-2 coats over your favorite white.

I was going to layer PMP over a white polish but I decided to see what this beauty would look like on its own.  I applied three coats, which gave me the perfect opacity.

Wearing it without the base gives it that yummy jelly sandwich look.

Next is The Dancing QueenA almost neon green with blue undertones, accented by fuchsia, sapphire,  green and chartreuse glitters in different shapes and sizes.

I really wanted this green to pop so I layered two coats of The Dancing Green over two coats of a white base.  I love how this looks!

I think the white base makes this "almost neon" a true neon green!

Last up is 24 Carrot BoldOrange red polish with gold shimmer - matte.

I applied two coats of the seriously BRIGHT shade!  I really could not believe the brightness of this polish!

I love the simplicity, but amazingness of this polish!   The gold flecks turn this polish into something really special.

These three polishes are perfect for summer! The formula with each polish was fabulous! I think I might have to purchase a couple more!
