KBShimmer Fall 2016 Collection Swatches & Review

Fall is my favorite season BY FAR. In terms of weather, holidays and polish colors. And one of the things I look forward to the most when fall is near is the reveal of KBShimmer's new collection! This year we get twelve beautiful shades in various finishes, holos, glitters, crellies, and crèmes. Let's look shall we?

Orchidding Me? is a warm purple linear holographic that leans a bit fuchsia. A fabulous holo formula, fantastic rainbowy fire! Two coats, dries pretty shiny but I'd still recommend a top coat. This is my favorite shade of purple, super pretty.

Little Boy Hue is a soft baby blue inspired by the 2016 Pantone color of the year Serenity. Amazing formula, super close to being a one coater! With such a light color, that's really impressive. I used two coats here.

Tiers Of Joy is described as a "cake batter" color, a crelly filled with pops of gold holographic and pink glitters, along with nutmeg and holo microglitter that "add a hint of spice." I always swoon for the KBShimmer crellies, and this is no exception. Easy formula, three coats. You could get away with two if you want a slightly more translucent look.

Grin And Gerbera It is a warm deep pink crème. A very wearable shade, ideal for fall or spring, or any season really! Incredible one coat formula, but I used two like usual.

The Best Mum Ever is a deepened lavender loaded with a pinky red micro flakies. The flakes rise and sink in the base to give it crazy awesome dimension and depth, so pretty! This is on the thinner side, but was surprisingly completely opaque in two coats.

Poppy Kisses is a bright, orange toned red linear holographic. This applied really easily, great formula and opaque in two coats. Makes me think of apple and pumpkin harvest time!

Sage It Ain't So is a soft sage green crelly accented with copper, lavender and silver glitter, and a sprinkling of holographic dust. Lovely and easy to polish with, I used three coats for full coverage on my nails, but you may only need two.

Turning Pointe is a new addition to the KBShimmer Mega Flame line, a soft peachy pink jelly base filled to the brim with super holographic microglitter. Excellent application, two coats gives complete opacity. I recommend a thick top coat for all of the mega flames as they dry very glittery. This is super blingy in real life, my photo unfortunately doesn't do it justice.

Flake Me Home Tonight is a minty silver metallic flake polish with holographic sparkle. The same formula as their Birthstone collection, no fuss formula and covers in two coats. No texture with this, as the flakes lay flat, but I'd wear a top coat anyway.

Oh My Ganache is a rich dark chocolate linear holographic. Creamier than the other holos, and not quite as linear, but still has lots of glistening rainbow-yness. Two coats here!

Sweet Devotion is a candy inspired white crelly bursting with hex glitters in blue, red, yellow, orange, green and brown, with a dash of micro slice glitters. Another great crelly formula, three coats here. You could also layer one coat of this over a white crème.

Fright This Way is Halloween inspired, it has a deep black jelly base with a scattering of holo dust and loads of purple glitter. This was a little chunky, some of the larger glitter pieces had begun to curl a bit which left the surface pretty bumpy. I used two layers of thick top coat to get a smooth surface over three layers of polish.

Included with the collection (free with fall collection orders while supplies last), are some metallic purple bat glitters, which were begging to be paired with Fright This Way! I placed a few on each nail and covered them with another two layers of thick top coat. It looks awesome, but I don't know how wearable this is with all those layers haha. If I wore this combo again, I'd wait to put on top coat until after I put on the glitter pieces.

This collection is available now on the KBShimmer website for $9.25 each. They are also running some promos for a while to celebrate their 8th year in business, check out their Facebook page for details! What do you think of these twelve fall beauties? My favorites are the crellies of course, but all of them are winners for me.
