These four polishes are part of the Summer 2015 Collection by KB Shimmer. This was a massive collection released just a few weeks ago, 28 polishes in total I believe. Of course there was no way I could get them all, so I figured I would start off by purchasing my favorite finish first: the crellies!
Pink-a Colada can be described as a violet leaning pink crelly polish with holographic glitters of lime green, light blue and pink. It feels like a very familiar shade, doesn't it? I don't have an exact dupe, but I do have 'An Offer You Can't Refuchsia' from Delush Polish which comes close. This one has a slightly more pink undertone though and either way I am in love with the crelly cutie. Shown here in two coats. Good formula and consistency, no glitter clumping either which is always nice. It is sheer in one coat, but evens out perfectly with the second.
Shell Shock can be described as a peach crelly with holographic gold glitter, magenta glitter and copper glitters. Again, I found myself thinking 'Don't I have this?' once I swatched it. I do own the spring release 'To Peach His Own', which has an identical base color. I do think I prefer the glitter color combination in this one a bit more though, so I guess that's a plus for me. Three coats. Good formula, didn't give me any issues when applying.
Home Surf can be described as a muted teal crelly with silver holographic glitters in several sizes. Isn't this just drop dead gorgeous? For some reason though I keep thinking of the movie Frozen when I see it. This of course then makes me think of winter and not summer. Regardless of my silly brain, I love this one so much. It's a fantastic color to glitter combination! Three coats. Great formula, identical application as Shell Shock.
Vitamin Sea can be described as an aqua jelly polish with pink, silver, and micro holographic glitter. One of the only jelly polishes to be released this season, this one is absolutely the definition of lush. And let's not forget that squishy finish. Definitely my pick for must-have for the summer! Two coats. Good formula and consistency, not too thin or too thick. I did experience very minor staining to my cuticles, but none to my nail bed.
Overall while I am happy with my purchases, I do find myself wishing I would have gone with the cremes instead of these crelly polishes. I think the only one of the crelly polishes swatched here I can say is a must-have is Vitamin Sea. KB Shimmer is still one of my favorite indies that I love giving my business to (their customer service is hands down the best I have ever experienced). So if you don't have dupes for any of these then you will be immensely satisfied, especially with the formulas. So tell me guys, did any of you end up getting the summer release?
