KBShimmer Fall 2015 Collection Swatches & Review

Hi cookies! Today is very exciting! I have been waiting for one special Fall collection to come out and this is the day to unveil it! I'm talking about indie darling KBShimmer of course, and I have her much anticipated Fall collection to show you! There are twelve colors all together, which include 4 crèmes, 6 glitter crelly/jelly mixes, 1 ultra holo, and 1 microglitter. And one of the glitters is a glow-in-the-dark polish! Yay and hooray!

Be Scareful is a white crelly with matte orange and black dots, shreds, stars, triangles and hex glitters. This had really good opacity, it only needed two coats. It is a little thicker than most of their crelly mixes because this is a glow-in-the-dark polish, which have a heftier consistency. Dries semi-satiny so use a top coat for full gloss. I failed at getting a good glow-in-the-dark photo of this guy, but I'm sure some of the other reviewers will deliver.

Breaking Blues is a medium periwinkle crème. This is such a beautiful color, I absolutely love it. It has a really great formula, almost opaque in one coat but I used two for total coverage. Even if you have similar periwinkle shades in your collection, let me tell you, you need this! Also, it might appear at first glance to be similar to the original Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, but it's a lot more purple toned.

Carpe Denim is a dark navy jelly filled with small holographic silver glitters. This had quite a good level of opacity for a jelly. It went on really smooth and there was a good distribution of glitter without having to manipulate it at all. It dried nice and shiny as well. This is two coats.

Dark & Twisty is a black jelly with metallic glitters in rainbow colors. I was surprised at the coverage on this one too, it was almost a one coater! I used two for a deeper look. This shade is perfect for the Halloween season! It reminds me of a freak show or haunted carnival or something.

Fig-Get About It is a linear holographic lacquer in a purpley-burgundy shade. It was a little sheer at first and took three coats for full opacity. The holo is intense on this, it's super rainbow-y in the sunlight!

I Feel Gourd-geous is a coppery champagne holographic microglitter. It has pretty good coverage, but I needed three coats to cover the nail fully. It's not overly chunky, but it does dry satiny matte so I recommend a layer or two of top coat to completely smooth it and make it really shine.

I've Seen Sweater Days is a muted turquoisey teal crelly with blue, aqua, green and silver metallic glitters. This had the same great crelly glitter formula that I've come to know KBShimmer for, really easy to apply with great glitter payoff. Two coats.

Open Toad Shoes is a soft olive green crelly with glitters in metallic burgundy, blue, and greeny gold with some holographic sparkle. Another stellar formula, no muss, no fuss. Two coats here as well. This might be my favorite, it's so unique! And that name, mama, it's giving me life!

Soul Deep is a blackened blue crème with purple undertones. Sleek and oh so rich with an amazing formula. Almost opaque in one coat, but I used two for full opacity.

Such A Vlad-Ass is another crème, this time in a bright but deep fresh blood red. Oh, so you say a red is a red is a red? Well not this time buster! I've fallen head over heels with this indie brand's crèmes and this red is a knockout! You need it. Two coats. *Edit: this color is deeper and slightly blue toned in darker/dimmer lights.*

Talk Qwerty To Me is a shimmery teal with micro flake shimmer in blue and gold. I had a little trouble with this one, it can get a little thick on the nail if your coats are too heavy. I recommend using thin coats and letting each dry completely, or you risk pulling off the polish you already put down. I used three coats here. This could also look nice layered, maybe over Soul Deep or a black crème.

Teal It To My Heart is the last in the collection and another fabulous crème. Like the name suggests, it's a beautiful teal color. This was completely opaque in one coat; I used two like I always do, but you can totally use one with no issue.

This collection will be available September 15, 2015 on, and at select salons & retailers. For sales outside the U.S., visit Tell me what you think of this collection! Are you dying for those crèmes? Or are you more into the glitters? My top picks are Open Toad Shoes for its uniqueness, Breaking Blues for the color, and Carpe Denim for the hawtness! Talk to you soon!
