This spring let KBShimmer’s Nauti By Nature collection take you on a trip to the islands, where life is slower, the days are warmer, and flip flops are the norm.

Macaw Me Maybe
Walking along a palm lined path, all I could hear was the sounds of birds. Turning the corner, I saw a bold scarlet colored perched Macaw. This red shade was inspired by the bright red tone of the macaw, while the linear holographic flame mimics the blue and golden yellow accent feathers. 2 Coats Recommended
The Girl Is Tiki
Going into tourist bar, one is bound to find drinks served kitschy, tiki shaped cups. This rusty coral shade is an orange leaning peach, paying homage to those tourist trap drinks. Frozen or not, like those fun concoctions, this polish is better on the beach, were the sun will make the linear holo pigment come to life! 2 Coats Recommended
This golden toned yellow is a super sunny shade, complementing any swimsuit you wear. Perfect in 2-3 coats, this warm shade will make you long to mellow out on sandy beaches, where tropical waters provide the soundtrack and rum runners help cool you off.
Keep Palm And Carry On
A rich yellow leaning green, this palm inspired shade brings to mind the lush greenery of the islands, be it in the trees themselves, or the vibrantly colored tourist shirts. Two easy coats will have you back to relaxing in no time.
Tropic Like It’s Hot
Spring Break Trips are filled with turquoise colored waters and late night music that makes you want to move. This aqua, Caribbean sea inspired color is alive with the rich blue-green color found in tropical waters.

As dawn nears, and the sun starts to peek above the horizon, the sky bursts forth with shades of periwinkle, purples and navy. This holographic periwinkle polish was inspired by those quiet mornings on the beach, where finding shells on the shore, enjoying the sounds of gulls and waves, and stunning view can make anyone glad to be awake! This lavender leaning blue shade is best in 2 coat.
Junkanoo is a colorful and festive street carnival and parade held in the Bahamas. While the origin of the celebration may be disputed, the wild costumes, masks, and music are clearly the highlight of this festival.

Micro bursts of confetti like micro sliced glitter flitter among this creamy white base. 2-3 Coats Recommended

Saved By The Shell
One of my favorite things about traveling is seeing the different shells scattered among the sand. This sandy shade is inspired by those beautiful shimmering pink shells.

At the end of the day, flip flops in your hand, one last walk on the beach at sunset is the perfect way to end the day.
