KBShimmer Early Summer collection review and swatches

The cremes are very easy to apply. They’re super smooth and gorgeous.  Low and Be Bold really needs to be seen in person to be appreciated.

I must now profess my undying love for the textured polishes. They are so gorgeous! I haven’t even tried them with a top coat because I can’t stop staring at them without it. I do usually see them chip on me within 48 hours, but I am incredibly hard on my nails.

The holos are beautiful, each and every one. They sort of remind me of the UD Naked palette. I love that there’s a silver, gold, copper (try this one, so gorgeous!), nude and of course black.

My favorites from the collection (it’s hard to narrow it down) are Low and Be Bold, Too Pop to Handle, She Twerks Out, Partners in Lime, Run! It’s the Coppers!, Stark Raven Mad, and In Bare Form.
