SAFS: KBShimmer Winter 2014 Collection


Hello dolls!

For today's edition of "Sunday's Are For Swatching", I have a selection of colors from KBShimmer's Winter 2014 Collection...

I am over the moon with these polishes!  They're all so fantastic, so let's get started ;)

KBShimmer - Flake Dance

Flake Dance is a holo glitter topper with a smattering of hexes, circles, micro and snowflake glitters.  I used the "dab & drag" method when applying this polish, with some glitter placement for the snowflakes.  Shown is 1 coat over a blue base with base and top coats used to smooth the glitters.

 KBShimmer - Let's Sleigh Together

Let's Sleigh Together is a pale grey crelly with a mix of green navy and mint hexes, blue circles and holo micro glitters.  I really loves this one.  Application was an easy, creamy breeze!  Shown is 2 coats with top coat.

KBShimmer -  Merry Pinkmas

Merry Pinkmas is a returning Christmas favorite for KBShimmer!  It's a cotton candy crelly that featured a variety of red, green and neon glitters in lots of shapes and sizes.  Shown is 2 coats with top coat.

 KBShimmer - Fallen Angle

No... that's not a typo!  Haha Fallen Angle is a royal blue jelly with holo blue triangles, siver and blue hexes and mirco glitters mixed in.  Get it?  Angle??  Because of the triangles???  Just making sure ;) I took some extra care applying this one.  I wanted to be sure I got a good spread of glitters.  Application wasn't difficult. Shown is 2 coats with topcoat.

KBShimmer - White Here, White Now

White Here, White Now is a snowy textured polish.  It's so fun!  Application was really easy with great coverage, even in the first coat.  Shown is 2 coats, no top coat.

 KBShimmer - Sugar Plum Faerie

Another returning favorite this season, Sugar Plum Faerie is a plum crelly with berry, purple and lime holo glitters mixed in.  When applying, the first coat was more sheer than I expected. But it was very easy to work with and by the second coat, I was golden.  Shown is 2 coats with top coat.

 KBShimmer - Pine-ing For Yule

Pine-ing For Yule is the 2014 Toys For Tots charity polish.  It's adorbs!  This glitter topper is Christmas tree inspired with a mix of green triangles, red stars, silver hexes and micro glitters.  I had absolutely no issue with the glitters coming out of the bottle; this is a very compacted polish.  I used the "dab & drag" method again in my application.  Shown is 1 coat over a white base with base and top coats used to smooth the glitters.  For each bottle sold at from 11/1 - 12/15, $4 will be donated to Toys For Tots.

 KBShimmer - Too Cold To Hold

Too Cold To Hold is a sapphire blue base filled with holo silver, blue, and green glitters for a bejeweled textured look.  It is by far my favorite; just sooooo pretty!!  Application was smooth and easy.  Shown is 2 coats with top coat.

The full Winter 2014 collection will be released on 11/1.  You can see a sneak peek of the entire collection here ;)

I'll be back later this week with some more Halloween nail art...

Until next time!
