KBShimmer Spring Collection Swatches Part 2 - The Crellies

Today I have the second half of the polishes I purchased from KBShimmer's Spring collection. I have five polishes to show you today and they are all crelly polishes!



Up first is I'm So Sweet Pea. It is a very light purple base with teal, purple pink and mint colored matte hex glitters. The glitter ranges in size from small to medium. This is three coats of I'm So Sweet Pea.




Meow or Never is a very pale grey polish with purple, grey, periwinkle and blue glitter. According to KBShimmer, this is based on the Pantone Spring color Glacier Gray. This also has a very delicate holographic micro glitter running through it. This is three coats of Meow or Never. 




Up next is Wind Swarm. This is a pale blue base (based on the Spring 2015 Pantone color Aquamarine) with purple, gold, white and pink matte and metallic glitter with a holographic micro glitter. The glitter ranges in size from small to large There are hexes, circles and squares in this one. This is three coats of Wind Swarm.





Sweet Egg-scape is a light bubblegum pink polish with red, purple green, coral, silver and white glitter in matte and holographic finishes. The glitter varies in size from micro glitter to medium. There are hexes, circles, triangles, squares and stars in this one. I didn't have any trouble getting any of the glitter out of this one. This is three coats of Sweet Egg-scape.




And last, but not least is Cool Hand Cuke. This is a light mint green polish with pastel yellow, green, pink, purple and white glitter in it. It also has that holographic micro glitter running through it. The glitters are all matte and there are circles, hexes, triangles and stars in it. This is three coats of Cool Hand Cuke.





I like all of these polishes. I think the polishes are wonderful for Spring. As you can see, I did have a little bit of an issue with the polish leveling, but I think that was my fault, not the polish. When these dry, the glitter does tend to stick up above the base polish (that's kind of the nature of crelly polishes) so I would recommend top coating these. All of these polishes are available on the KBShimmer website here. I'd love to hear which ones are your favorite in the comments down below!

  2. I'm not usually keen on coloured crellys but some of these are sugary sweet prettiness! I thought the pantone colour of the year is masala? I lose track so rapidly. Lovely swatches - definitely would be topcoated to wear to hide that bumpy glitter look but thats pretty normal with these polishes.

    1. You are right! I edited the post because Glacier Gray is one of Pantone's Spring colors - not the color of the year. Duh. Thank you! :0)

  7. I love all of them! I really like most of the KBShimmer spring collection. I need to win the lottery or something. Crellies can be tricky to apply, a good thick topcoat is a must with them.
