KBShimmer Spring 2015 Full Collection Swatches + Review

Hi guys! I'm so excited to finally share with you the latest from KBShimmer - their Spring 2015 Collection! This collection features twelve beautiful new polishes that'll have you excited for winter to end.

In this new collection, there are seven crellies, four holos, and one creme, all in gorgeous pastel shades that are perfect for spring. The formulas on all of these were generally very easy to work with, and I just love their wide flat brushes for easy application. For all swatches below, I used KBShimmer base and top coat. Let's get started!

piCture pOlish Electric Dream and Lagoon: Swatches + Review

Hello everyone, and happy Friday! Today I have a few shades from piCture pOlish to share with you. I just recently tried out their polishes for the first time, and I fell in love, so I'm so thrilled to have more swatches to share with you.

The two shades I am showing you today are both collaboration shades, and as expected, the formulas on both are amazing. Be warned, this post is a bit photo heavy, but I just loved these polishes so much that I kept taking more photos!

Zoya Transitional 2015: Naturel Satins

Hey guys! Today I have the latest from Zoya to show you - the Naturel Satins collection! Zoya is so great at coming up with transitional collections with neutral colors (you remember their Naturel Deux collection? Perfection!) Anyway, these neutrals are unique in that they have a new satin finish, which falls somewhere between matte and shiny.

I actually found myself really loving the satin finish - it reminded me of soft leather! But of course, you can top this with either matte or shiny top coat if you prefer. That's why this polish is so great - you can wear it so many different ways! All the colors in this collection were perfectly opaque in two coats, and the formula was extremely easy to work with (although, since it is recommended that you skip the top coat, any ridges you may have could show through the polish, so I would suggest buffing lightly or using a ridge filling base coat!) Let's take a look:

China Glaze Road Trip Collection, Part 2: Destination Unknown

Earlier this week, I showed you guys swatches of the first half of the China Glaze Road Trip Collection, and today I've got the second half to share with you - this set is called Destination Unknown, and it consists of six more bright colors. These ones actually scream summer to me, but you can definitely rock them in the spring too.

Like the last half of the collection, this set of six contains a mix of jelly like finishes, creme finishes, and one shade with a rosegold shimmer. All of the formulas were easy to work with, and they all had a lovely glossy finish. Let's take a closer look:
