KBShimmer Spring Training Nail Lacquer
KBShimmer Spring Training Nail Lacquer ($8.75 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft mint green polish filled with a palette of floral colored glitters.” It has a pale, pastel green base with subtle warm undertones (at least, it reads just slightly warm-toned on me) paired with a variety of coral, yellow, and blue glitters; some small, some hexagon-shaped and larger. It is lighter and less cool-toned (in base) compared to Illamasqua Mottle, which I recently reviewed. The base color is a bit warmer than Butter London Fiver. Nubar Baby Sprout is a bit brighter but very close to the base color.
One of the things I really like about KBShimmer’s polishes is that you can find more opaque glitter polishes within the range, so you don’t have to worry about finding the right pairing for it. It has a creamy, slightly jelly-like finish–again, there’s a squishy look to the nails after two coats–but it has a fair amount of creaminess. It was mostly opaque after two coats, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin. The glitter dispersed evenly across the nail, and I didn’t have to push, pull, or fish for glitter. I typically get a week of wear out of KBShimmer’s formula with minimal tip wear but no chipping. This polish is scented with freesia, and I was able to smell once the polish dried (so whether that’s for you depends on if you like freesia!).
