KBShimmer-Winter-2014

Hey dolls! This evening I have photos for you of the KBShimmer Winter 2014 collection. It features ten glitter-filled shades in a variety of finishes.

KBShimmer Deja Brew is described as a brown polish with cinnamon red undertones that set off the linear holographic rainbow. I shouldn’t even have to say how much I love this polish. I got delayed in swatching the others because I wore Deja Brew for four days. The formula was great and it applied effortlessly in two coats.

KBShimmer Dressed To Gild is described as a textured polished with holographic gold glitters and hints of lavender and lime holographic glitters add depth and extra shine. This was my favorite textured shade from the collection, as the lavender and lime glitters were a nice surprise. Dressed to Gild makes me think of Mardi Gras. The formula was thick because of the chunky glitter, but applied relatively easily. I was expecting to need more than two coats, but opacity was reached at that point.

KBShimmer Fallen Angel is described as a vibrant royal blue jelly with holographic blue triangles, silver holo hexes, and blue hex glitters with micro sparkles. I’m typically not a huge fan of triangle glitter, but I don’t mind them here. Maybe it’s the gorgeous blue base that I couldn’t stop staring at. Fallen Angel’s formula built up nicely in three coats without the glitter dragging. Top coat was used in the photos below.

KBShimmer Flake Dance is described as silver holographic snowflakes dance among a scattering of smaller holographic glitters. I did not realize until I was preparing this post that I failed to get any of the snowflake glitters onto my nails. Blame it on late night swatch sessions after work. The clear base on Flake Dance was not too thick, but I did have to dab on a second coat to get a few more glitters on the nail. It is shown over Zoya Prim.

KBShimmer Let’s Sleigh Together is described as a pale gray crelly base with hex glitters in green, navy, and pale mint, circle glitters in blueberry and micro holographic glitters for shine and sparkle. This is my favorite crelly glitter released in some time! The formula was sheer and would work layered over a gray base. To keep the jelly-like texture, I used three coats of Let’s Sleigh Together and had to dab on some of the larger glitters. Top coat was used in the photos below.

KBShimmer Mauve on Over is described as a pale mauve crelly base that sets off an explosion of colored hexes in orange, navy, and aqua. I really like this shade as well. The formula was exactly the same as Let’s Sleigh Together; it was sheer, built up in three coats, large glitters had to be placed, and top coat was applied.

KBShimmer Pine-ing For Yule is described as evergreen triangle “trees” swim among red mini star “tree toppers” and holographic glitters in red and silver. This is the brand’s 2014 Toys for Tots charity polish, where $4 from each bottle sold will be donated until 12.15.14. The base was not too thick, but I did have to dab the on the glitters. The stars were the most difficult to get out. Pine-ing For Yule is shown over Zoya Willa with top coat.

KBShimmer Spot Sign is described as a black leopard shaped glitters accented by black dots, small black hexes and micro holographic sparkle. One coat of Spot Sign was dabbed on over Zoya Haven. I did have some difficulty getting the spots to lie flat on my curved nail beds. Top was used in the photos below.

KBShimmer Too Cold To Hold is described as a textured rich sapphire blue base filled with holographic silver, blue, and green holographic glitters. The formula was on the thick side, but applied easily in two coats.

KBShimmer Turnip the Beat is described as a rich sangria colored base with holographic glitters in magenta, purple, and red. I really like this color, but it didn’t dry to as much of a textured finish as the others in this collection. The formula was on the thick side and opacity was achieved in two coats.

KBShimmer White Here, White Now is described as a snowy white textured polish. The formula was thick, but still streaky on the first coat if that makes sense. It applied easily and was opaque in two coats.
