KBShimmer Winter 2014 Swatch and Review


press sample
Happy November to you and look what a treat I have!! One of the most anticipated collections of the year! KBShimmer Winter Collection! This includes
11 new polishes (including a Toys For Tots charity polish), five re-releases, four new cuticle oils and new nail vinyls.  I am including only the new shades in this post and get ready, it is picture heavy! I'll start with the texture shades because they really blew me away! I have used my new Canon EOS for these and my post was actually delayed as I muddled through learning my way around it and exporting them at high quality. In the end, I think I did the polishes justice! Please be sure to click the images for even better resolution <3

KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Dressed-To-Gild-Texture-Swatch
 KBShimmer Dressed To Gild (Texture):  A gold cousin to Hexy Bikini, this textured polish is rich with holographic gold glitters.  Hints of lavender and lime glitters add depth and extra shine.

 I didn't include individual bottle shots for each shade, but this one really wowed me! My stand out favorite of the collection.

KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Dressed-To-Gild-Texture-Swatch
 Two coats for this jammed packed glitter bomb. Ugh I love how it dries down matte yet incredibly sparkly and the gold with lime and pink? Brilliant.

KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Too-Cold-To-Hold-Texture-Swatch
 KBShimmer Too Cold To Hold (Texture):  A rich sapphire blue base is filled with holographic sliver, blue, and green holographic glitters for a bejeweled textured look.

KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Too-Cold-To-Hold-Texture-Swatch
 Incredibly beautiful mix of glitters that is full of depth. Excellent formula, 2 coats here.
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Too-Cold-To-Hold-Texture-Swatch

KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Turnip-The-Beet-Texture-Swatch
KBShimmer Turnip The Beet (Texture):  A rich sangria colored base accents holographic glitters in magenta, purple and red making this a super sparkly textured polish.
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Turnip-The-Beet-Texture-Swatch
 Another fabulous formula, 2 coats here. Love. Just love.
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Turnip-The-Beet-Texture-Swatch

KBShimmer-Winter-2014-White-Here-White-Now-Texture-Swatch
 KBShimmer White Here, White Now (Texture):  This snowy white polish is a blustery addition to our textured collection.  Two coats offer more coverage than any blizzard.  Please note, the full textured effect does not show until polish is fully dry.
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-White-Here-White-Now-Texture-Swatch
 I wasn't really expecting to like this one, but after my 2 coats dried I couldn't help feeling like I had fresh snowfall on my nails, and snow always makes me happy :D
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-White-Here-White-Now-Texture-Swatch

KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Pine-ing-For-Yule-Swatch-Toys-For-Tots
 KBShimmer Pine-ing For Yule: 2014 Toys For Tots ® charity polish.  A holiday inspired glitter top coat, this polish is swimming with holographic triangle “Christmas Trees” and red star tree toppers.  Sliver holo hex and micro glitters complete this wintery polish.  For each bottle sold at KBShimmer.com from 11/01 until 12/25 $4 will be donated to Tots For Tots ®.
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Pine-ing-For-Yule-Swatch-Toys-For-Tots
 Another totally creative polish and who can resist contributing to such a good cause? I dabbed on 1 coats here over White here, White Now which of course turns that texture shade into a glossy white.

KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Let's-Sleigh-Together-Swatch
KBShimmer Let’s Sleigh Together:  A pale gray creally, this muted polish features hex glitters in green, navy and pale mint, circles glitters in blueberry and micro holographic glitters for shine and sparkle.
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Let's-Sleigh-Together-Swatch
 Another winner for me, this is 3 coats and I love how the base isn't stark white. Such a soft glitter polish if that makes sense.

KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Mauve-On-Over-Swatch
 KBShimmer Mauve On Over: A pale mauve creally base sets off a explosion of colored hexes in orange, navy and aqua.
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Mauve-On-Over-Swatch
 Again, KBShimmer creates a unique color combo! I love how these colors contrast with each other. Three coats.

KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Deja-Brew-Swatch
 KBShimmer Deja Brew:  Like a rich cup of java, or a quality cognac, this brown polish has red undertones that set off the linear holographic rainbow.
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Deja-Brew-Swatch
 Anything that reminds me of my beloved coffee is good in my book. Perfect formula, 2 coats.
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Deja-Brew-Spot-Sign-Swatch
 KBShimmer Spot Sign:  Like a wild cat ready to pounce, this spotted polish is ready to bring out our wild side.  Black leopard spot shaped glitters are accented by black dots, small black hexes and micro holographic sparkle.
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Deja-Brew-Spot-Sign-Swatch
One coat, dabbed in some spots, over Deja Brew. LOVING nail polish glitters that are novel like this!
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Fallen-Angle-Swatch
 KBShimmer Fallen Angle:  A vibrant royal blue jelly, this a-cute polish features holographic blue triangles, silver holo hexes, and blue hex glitters with micro sparkles.
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Fallen-Angle-Swatch
 Whoah. Just stunning. This polish is full of so much that is right!! First of all, royal blue jelly! Second - great formula full coverage that isn't thick or gloopy for such a pigmented jelly. And lastly,  holo triangle glitter.
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Fallen-Angle-Swatch

KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Flake-Dance-Swatch
 KBShimmer Flake Dance: Sliver holographic snowflakes dance among a scattering of smaller silver holographic glitters.  Use over your favorite cream color for an instant wintery manicure.
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Flake-Dance-Swatch
 -Sigh- another snowflake polish I'm in love with! This is one coat over one coat of KBShimmer Stonewashed. I really didn't have to do any fishing for glitter. I usually turn the bottle upside for a few minutes before I polish if it's a bottle with larger, heavier glitters.
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Flake-Dance-Swatch
Have you already shopped from this collection? Would love to hear which ones you got or are planning to get!
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Nail-Vinyls
 The Winter themed nail vinyls are available now and I can't wait to make a design using them!
KBShimmer-Winter-2014-Cuticle-Oil-Pen
I couldn't be more thrilled with the new scents for the cuticle oil. I am super picky about my scents and for some reason neither the pink sugar or lemongrass agreed with me. I adore the chai tea and raspberry vanilla. The peppermint is great and unscented, well you can't go wrong with that. I have one of these in my bag, in my car, in my night table, in the kitchen everything drawer. You get the idea. Perfect on the go not messy cuticle oil!
