KBShimmer Sarong Place, Sarong Time from the Summer 2015 Collection that launched on Friday is a vibrant purple that reminds me of flowers.
(On Sunday, I wore this when I went to Edwards Gardens. If you’re interested, check out my social media because I posted a photo of this manicure, but also the beautiful blossoms!)
KBShimmer Sarong Place, Sarong Time is the second KBShimmer nail polish that I’ve ever worn, and looks like they’ve struck gold a second time in a row!
(Also, I’ve been trying out the KBShimmer Clearly on Top Quick Dry Top Coat. I must say that I’ve had a great experience with it so far. Absolutely no shrinkage, but I’ll need to try it over other brands of polishes to see if it works across the board.)

KBShimmer Sarong Place, Sarong Time Review
Sarong Place, Sarong Time by KBShimmer is the fun pop of colour that your nails have been craving! It’s a violet that’s anything but shy, and it will flatter a wide variety of skin tones from fair to rich.
While it’s not a searing neon, it’s bright, and when you see it in direct sunlight, it really makes a bold statement!
This has a creme finish that dries slightly less shiny, so it needs a shiny top coat to achieve maximum impact.
Application & Formula
I was very impressed with the formula because it flowed onto my nails very easily and smoothly. Even with a single coat, I got exceptional coverage with Sarong Place, Sarong Time by KBShimmer. However, I still added a second coat out of habit.
I didn’t see any streaking whatsoever. This is one of those nail polishes that is nearly fool-proof!
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
Sarong Place, Sarong Time by KBShimmer is an awesome nail polish that I highly recommend if you’re in the market for a bright violet nail polish that’s reminiscent of summer blossoms! 🙂
What’s your favourite flower? If you could paint any flower on your nails, what would it be? What colour screams summer to you?
Beautiful!! I love this color. looks absolutely great.
You could definitely rock it…like all the other colours I’ve seen on your nails! 😉 (Is there any colour you can’t pull off? Hehe!)
Lol thank you so much. I don’t yet, we shall see. When I get tour first “nah”.
Haha, I don’t want to jinx anything! Your nails are always hits – love them! 🙂
What a gorgeous shade of purple! I’m really liking this one. I could see it a pedicure color too. Maybe with some white hibiscus decals, ort whit polka dots. Very pretty. As always, thanks for sharing!
Oh, that sounds wonderful – the hibiscus nail art you mentioned! Even polka dots would be adorable. Good ideas!
Such a pretty purple and it’s perfect for spring and summer!
It’s one of those Wear When You’re Happy & When You Want to Be Happy shades! 🙂
Even the name is so fun!
