KBShimmer Spring 2016 Collection Swatches and Review


As the winter season comes to a close, most of you are rejoicing at the pleasant weather up ahead, and some of you, like me, are excited about the fact of wearing beautiful spring shades! Christy Rose has once again outdone herself with this beautiful collection. The collection is split into 2 parts (of 7): Spring and Mega Flame.

Starting off with the Spring Collection, which is full of 7 Spring-like crelly, holographics and cremes.


I started off each swatch with Fillin’ Groovy, which is a ridge filler. Although I do not have ridges that affect my manicures, I really adored this because it gave such a smooth surface to my nails and made each polish look PERFECT.


Hello Dahlia is a gorgeous muted peach polish with gorgeous gold shimmer.  Based on the Pantone 2016 Spring/Summer shade Peach Echo.


I Wet My Plants (giggles and snorts at name!) is a lovely muted sky blue with a blend of glitters. Based on the Pantone 2016 Spring/Summer shade Serenity.


Peony Pincher is a lovely lavender-leaning pink holographic.


Pools Paradise is based on the Pantone 2016 Spring/Summer shade Limpet Shell. An aqua crelly with a blend of glitters.


Prints Charming is a beautiful white crelly base with a blend of glitters.


Upside Round is a neon glitter topper, and seen below on top of Hello Dahlia.


Purr-fectly Paw-some is based on the Pantone 2016 Spring/Summer shade Serenity. It’s a gorgeous holographic shade.


Here is Purr-fectly Paw-some with Oh, Matte! matte top coat over it.


Moving on to the Mega Flame Collection. These are gorgeous and needed about 2 – 3 coats for complete opacity. They are all really similar because they have a sheer base and full of holographic glitters.

Things That Make You Go Bloom is a beautiful lilac Mega Flame.


Stalk Market is a yellow-green Mega Flame.


So Flam-ous is a gorgeous peach Mega Flame.


Smells Like Green Spirit is a grassy green Mega Flame.


Set in Ocean is a watery blue Mega Flame.


Ripe For the Pink-ing is a lovely raspberry pink Mega Flame.


Night Bright is a black based Mega Flame. This one is inspired by the night sky.


Overall, I was really happy with these, and have been wearing them in turns since I received them. They are all so beautiful, and I would definitely recommend getting ALL of the Mega Flames. They are SO unbelievable! Fillin’ Groovy and Oh, Matte! are also my favorite nail treatments. I am pretty sure my Fillin’ Groovy will be over within the next month! That’s how much I am using it.


What do you think? Which is your favorite? These will release on March 15th, 2016!

Press sample. All opinions are honest and my opinion.


  1. Those green and blue mega flames are spectacular! I love Alloy Matey (the silver that is similar to this, so it’s fun to find that flash in some spring colors. Thanks for the review of Fillin’ Groovy. I’ve reached an age where the ridges are getting more pronounced and an issue for me under creme polishes. The KB Shimmer base coat is my absolute favorite and wears like iron, so I am looking forward to trying Fillin Groovy.

    • YES, they are amazing! Fillin’ Groovy has easily become my HOLY GRAIL base coat. It’s so perfect and gives my nails a smooth look! <3
