KBShimmer Winter 2015 Collection Swatches & Review

Hey heeeyy KBShimmer! I have the Winter 2015 collection from them to share with you today. There are 14 polishes in this bunch and they are all great, as usual haha. So let's take a look! I hope you like them as much as I do! :)

Claws And Effect is a midnight blue holographic polish with color shifting blue to pink glass fleck shimmer bits. The shimmer is front and center in lower lights, while the holographic comes out more in bright light. This was a little thin, but not difficult to control. Two coats was all I needed for full opacity.

For Fox Sake is a dusty, red leaning orange crème with the greatest name of any polish ever. This had the typical KBShimmer crème formula, amazing application and opaque in two coats. Almost a one coater though!

Brrr-tiful Dreamer has a creamy greyed out purple base with aqua, silver, purple, and fuchsia glitters. The base on this guy is pretty opaque so I only needed two coats. You'll always want a glossy top coat for these types of polishes to make the finish nice and level.

Owl Miss You is a soft beigey neutral tan filled with shifty gold and green metallic flakes and some warm metallic shimmer. This was thin and a little sheer on the first coat. Not runny though, so it was easy to apply and build up. I used three coats.

Chilly Pepper is another awesome crème, a bright red that's perfect for the holiday season. I had no issues with the application, opaque in two coats.

Smoke Signal is a dusty light grey crelly polish with different sizes of orange, red, and aqua holographic glitters. I absolutely love grey polishes, so I am head over heels with this one. The base was a bit light on this one so I used three coats, but you might only need two.

Kind Of A Big Dill is a deep spruce green jelly loaded with small and mini silver holographic glitters. It was kinda sheer, due to the jelly-ness, and wasn't quite as opaque as I wanted on two coats, so I layered on a third. This is one of my favorite types of polishes KBShimmer comes out with. We saw an awesome blue version from them in the Fall collection, so I hope she keeps adding to this family!

Coal In One is a charcoal grey linear holographic polish. This has a very strong holo rainbow effect, really vibrant. Excellent formula and opaque in two coats.

How Corn-y is inspired by Indian corn. It's a muted warm yellow crelly with burgundy, gold, red, and orange glitters. This guy has a ton of glitter in it, so you will have to manipulate it a little to cover your nail the way you want. I had some bunching of glitters, but it wasn't difficult to fix. This is three coats.

Fleece Navidad is soft, silvery light grey polish with holographic sparkle and color shifting blue to purple micro shimmer flakes. I already told you how much I love a good grey, so this is another winner for me. This is easy to apply, no issues. I used three coats for full opacity. Dries slightly dull so use a top coat for shine. Be careful when removing this one as the shimmer migrates and can get all over your skin.

sELFie is a holiday mix of holographic green, red, and silver glitter in a clear base. I layered one coat of this over Kind Of A Big Dill. I was really happy to see how much glitter I was able to get out on one coat with no effort, so you can probably build this up to opacity in three coats. I LOVE this combination! So blingy!

Oh Holo Night is a blingy holographic glitter topper featuring silver and blue holographic hexes and mini stars. I wore one coat of this over Coal In One and I love the result. This is easy to work with and spreads easily with great payoff. The glitter can sink in the bottle so I left mine upside down for a few minutes before I put it on.

Yule Worthy has a warm burgundy purple leaning brown base filled to the brim with metallic microflakes. The glitter in this can shift to looking either silver or gold depending on what lighting you're in, but I'm pretty sure it's silver. Great formula that is very simple to apply. Two coats. This is another one you'll have to be careful in removing because the shimmer migrates.

Toying Around is KBShimmer's 4th annual edition charity polish; $4 from each bottle will be donated to Toys for Tots! So obviously this is inspired by toys, it has a pale rainbow of matte glitters in squares, circles, triangles and hexes in a clear base with a bit of holographic micro glimmer. This is one coat over Chilly Pepper. I had to manipulate and place the glitter pieces a bit because you get a ton on your brush. So cute!

These are all available now on the KBShimmer website for customers in the US. The crèmes are $7.50 and the glitters and holos are $8.75. International customers are able to order from the Harlow & Co. website, based in Canada. Tell me what you think of this collection! My favorites are Yule Worthy, Kind of a Big Dill, sELFie and Claws and Effect. Let me know your picks and we'll see you again soon!
