KB Shimmer Summer 2013 Collection Swatches and Review

KB Shimmer Summer 2013

Hello there people of the world. How are you on this fine day?

Perhaps you have heard of KB Shimmer Nail Polish? I had been hearing about it and seeing amazing swatches of the shades for awhile when I decided I needed to jump on this bandwagon. So today I’ve got six of the nine shades from the KB Shimmer Summer 2013 Collection.

Here is something I love right off the bat from the brand. They came with some instructions on how to apply some of the more “difficult” shades. I really appreciate this because sometimes you just can’t get a shade to look nice because oh say it has a satin finish and is supposed to dry matte but you don’t know that. It’s not always totally obvious how every nail polish finish should be just from applying it.

MAC All About Orange Collection for Summer 2013 Swatches & Review

MAC All About Orange

MAC All About Orange is a new limited edition collection for summer 2013.

Isn’t orange just perfection lately? I don’t know about you, but I am obsessed with all things coral, orange and peach lately. It has basically replaced pink as my go-to shade for nails, lips and cheeks for the last couple months. If you would have asked me if I loved orange 5 years ago I would have said absolutely not, it’s one of my least favorite shades. Now I heart it!

All About Orange is a small collection featuring seven Lipsticks (Razzledazzler, Sweet & Sour, Tangerine Dream, Flamingo, Sushi Kiss, Tart & Trendy and Neon Orange), three Cremesheen Glasses (Double Happiness, Imperial Light and Rising Sun), an Eye Shadow x 4 (Rainy Season), three Powder Blushes (Honey Jasmine, Royal Sunset and Immortal Flower) and five Nail Lacquers (Ke Ai, Sweet Pop, Colour Punch, Fiestaware and Moragne).

Orly Mash Up for Summer 2013 Swatches and Review

Orly Mash Up

Orly Mash Up for Summer 2013 is literally just that. A mash up of colors and finishes. There isn’t anything necessarily “cohesive” about this collection except it’s all very different. And I like it!

Cremes with iridescent shimmer, deep jewel-toned chrome, holographic glitter, screaming neon. This collection has it all!

Deborah Lippmann The Mermaids Summer 2013 Collection

Deborah Lippmann The Mermaids

Deborah Lippmann The Mermaids is new for summer 2013. This new collection features four new shades, all inspired by last year’s fan favorite Mermaid’s Dream.

Deborah wanted to create a new family of colors inspired by the same glittery, shimmery formula of Mermaid’s Dream. I think she did just perfectly! These all definitely seem to belong to the same family.

The one I do not have is called Mermaid’s Eyes, which is described as a seaside cerulean. The other three have a pretty nice formula. They all were just two coats. I got a good amount of base and glitter coverage with each coat, and there was no sliding of the glitter with the second coat after waiting about 2 minutes in-between. These actually look a bit less gritty and lumpy to me than Mermaid’s Dream, so that’s a bonus!

Zoya Irresistible for Summer 2013 Swatches and Review

Zoya Irresistible

Zoya Irresistible for summer 2013 features six shimmery metallic shades for your nails.

If you are looking for some super summery bright shades that cover completely with just two coats, look no further! I wasn’t completely convinced these would be two-coaters at first because every one was a little thin with just one coat. But then after two coats they were all pretty perfect and opaque. They dry fairly quickly because of the metallic finish.
