KBShimmer - The Dancing Green & Totally Tubular from the Summer 2013 Collection

When Christy from KBShimmer was sending me my collaboration polish Green Hex & Glam (enter to win a bottle here!), I asked her if I could also place an order for some of her other polishes. I picked up six, including top coat. Two of them you already saw in the guest post I did for the KBShimmer blog, another two of which I'll show you today, and the final one which I'm sure will show up in another post at another time.

The Dancing Green is a fresh grassy green jelly base packed with fuchsia, blue and chartreuse glitters in various sizes and shapes. I knew I'd love this one because Christy always steals my heart with her jelly based glitter polishes. The formula was really great - I didn't have any trouble getting any of the glitters out of the bottle and the polish glided really nicely on my nails. My swatch shows three coats.

Totally Tubular is a very blue-leaning teal base with lots of fuchsia, purple and blue glitter throughout. This one has a creamier base than The Dancing Green, but it's not too creamy that the glitters gets lost. It's just right. As with TDG, I had no trouble getting any of the glitters out of the bottle and they distributed nicely on my nails. The formula was really great and I needed just two coats for full opacity.

There's only two left from the Summer 2013 collection that I don't own (Blinded by the Bright and Pimp My Pride), so I'll have to get my hands on them to complete the set.

KBShimmer polishes are available directly from the KBShimmer website for those of you in the US. But don't worry if you're not in the US because they're also available from Harlow & Co. They always sell out pretty quickly from Harlow & Co., so be sure to keep up with them on Facebook for restock info.
