It is summer season! Or nearly. KBShimmer was impressed by sweet for her most up-to-date assortment, and that looks as if enjoyable to me!

Unwrapping a sugary deal with can convey again fond reminiscences. As a toddler, tempting shows of treats on the concession stand made going to a film the proper exercise for a sizzling summer time’s day. Summer season sleepovers meant choosing out our favourite sweet to get pleasure from throughout late evening giggle classes. Highway journeys meant snacks, and there was no higher approach to assist the miles fly by than to get pleasure from a roll of candy and tart candies or a pack of jaw-breaking balls that lasted without end. Gum that got here in rolls made for hours of bubble blowing, whereas bitter coated treats made for colourful and sore tongues. All grown up, the sweet aisle is probably not the magical place it as soon as was, however the workplace sweet bowl can nonetheless make the day a bit brighter.

“Feeling Good is a boldly coloured pink reflective nail polish. Loaded with reflective pigment, this brilliant pink shade comes alive within the gentle, with a daring sizzling pink hue that can preserve you observing your nails. In low gentle, darker pink twinkles with peach and gold tones. Greatest utilized in two skinny coats, we additionally suggest our Easy Strikes glitter topper earlier than ending with a fast dry topcoat like our Clearly On High for an ultra-smooth end.”

Feeling Good: 2 coats. I’m not an enormous fan of reflectives solely as a result of I solely use them for artwork. It’s a texture factor for me and eradicating it’s like eradicating sand and it offers me goosebumps. That being mentioned, the solar with flash is a very enjoyable, brilliant neon, however with out flash, it’s slightly bit uninteresting. I do like that trace of neon that reveals up with the reflective.


“You Wanna Peach Of Me is a radiant peach nail polish with an ultra-shifty shimmer. Vivid flashes of gold and orange give approach to muted purple and pink tones, whereas copper steals the present at some angles. Holo glow flakes add a metallic sparkle for flashes of holographic twinkle.”

You Wanna Peach Of Me: 3 coats. You would get away with two coats however I wished extra depth. I completely love this one, and I believe it’s my favourite of the gathering. I like the holographic flecks and the dimension they add and I really feel like I don’t personal sufficient peach polish. This one jogs my memory of Shady Seashores from the Summer season 2017 assortment, however You Wanna Peach of Me has far more shimmer.


“Any Method You Slice It nail polish is a daring orange shimmer. This vibrant orange shade twinkles within the gentle and simply reveals off gold and yellow hues. In decrease gentle, a extra intense orange shimmer nearly hints at a coppery purple, whereas excessive angles might even present a touch of lime.”

 Any Method You Slice It: 3 coats. This shade is so juicy that I swear it smells like orange juice however don’t fear, it’s not a scented polish. It’s simply so squishy and enjoyable and it’s completely orange. Love this one. Sure within the solar, you possibly can see my nail line, however it’s much less apparent in particular person and doesn’t hassle me. Find it irresistible!


“Pucker Up is a luminous chartreuse-leaning yellow neon nail polish. A robust coppery orange to lime shimmer is accented by micro holo bits. Low lighting amps up the inexperienced hue, whereas the shimmer reveals off peach, lemony yellow and gold.”

 Pucker Up: 3 coats. I actually thought this was the identical as Let It Slide, which got here out in the summertime 2022 assortment and placing them collectively Pucker Up is way more yellow gold and has a deeper orange shimmer. Tremendous shimmery yellows like this are at all times approach too sheer for my nail line. Even proper now, I don’t have lengthy nails and you may see all of it. It might in all probability be higher to layer this over white. I do like this greater than Let It Slide, however I simply want it have been extra opaque and fewer shimmery.



“Pull It Collectively nail polish is a nod to that pulled taffy. Vibrant inexperienced in hue, this reflective shade is filled with sparkle. In decrease lighting, the proper summer time inexperienced twinkles. In additional direct gentle or flash, a close to neon lime inexperienced reveals off its vibrant hue. Greatest utilized in two skinny coats, we additionally suggest our Easy Strikes glitter topper earlier than ending with a fast dry topcoat like our Clearly On High for an ultra-smooth end.”

Pull It Collectively: 3 coats. I pulled out Say It Ain’t Cilantro and Logging Off as a result of I wished to see how these two inexperienced reflectives examine. Pull It Collectively is true within the center and it’s a pleasant brilliant inexperienced. If these have been simpler to make use of for gradients, they’d make the proper gradient. This one doesn’t have a base shade so I wanted three coats to make it absolutely opaque. 



“Cool Beans nail polish is a nod to these colourful candies. A blueberry-colored base is loaded with a placing shifty shimmer. Boasting a powerful inexperienced flash, totally different lighting and angles convey out teal, gold, blue, and peach. With a barely bigger shimmer, this shade provides a delicate sparkle that enhances the jewel tones of the polish.”

Cool Beans: 2 coats. This one is tremendous duper shimmery. In reality, it’s so shimmery that I needed to do a sugar scrub after I swatched it as a result of my nails regarded like pixie mud in all places. I actually do love the tremendous shift of this plus all the shimmer. And I do like that pop of gold at excessive angles.



“Put A Ring On It’s a vibrant, teal-leaning blue nail polish. Glowy holographic flakes dance throughout the blue base so as to add a little bit of sparkle, whereas blue and aqua shimmer pops to convey out purple and indigo hues in numerous lighting and angles.”

Put a Ring On It: 2 coats. This has the identical shimmer and holo flakes as You Wanna Peach of Me. I like this end a lot extra solely as a result of once I take away it, it’s not as messy. It’s slightly darkish for a summer time assortment, however I perceive individuals do like darkish colours. It’s much like That’s Simply Grape which I’ll share later down. I do know we shouldn’t confine ourselves to colours of the season however I simply don’t attain for darkish colours in the summertime. At the very least this one offers me ocean vibes.



“Such A Smartie is a light purple polish loaded with color-shifting shimmer and linear holographic sparkle. In decrease lighting, a rainbow of hues could be seen, with pink, gold, lime, and blue enjoying in opposition to the lavender background. In brilliant gentle, the lime, gold and peach tones pop in opposition to the linear holographic rainbow.”

Such A Smartie: 2 coats. I’m torn on this shade. It appears slightly grandma with its base because it’s this frosty smooth purple. However then the shimmer does assist it and the holo is like BAM in your face. I’m nonetheless simply torn on it so I really feel like this will probably be like a adore it, or hate it shade. I do love that pop of blue and gold.
