KBShimmer Holiday 2016, Review and Swatches

Press Sample

Hello All! I'm so excited to share this collection with you, that I had to post at midnight! KBShimmer's Holiday collection is going to be released on November 1st, so I figured you needed as much time as possible to choose what you want. I have 8 out of the 16 colors to share with you tonight, so check other bloggers for the full collection. I can promise you that it is amazing!

KBShimmer Holiday 2016, Review and Swatches



The collection has something for everyone: cremes, holographics, holographics with shimmers, glitter top coats, crellies, and flakes. I've got a variety to show you!

The Holy Kale: 3 coats. This will definitely be opaque in 2 coats on shorter nails.  Green holos are my weakness. But add some pink and blue shimmer, and I'm super happy. I'm ready to combine this with Chai-huahua down below for a fun holly manicure.

Whiskey Business: 2 coats. This is the Birthstone Finish (liquid metal) so it's super sparkly and shimmery. Just be careful with removal as sparkles will get everywhere. I love gold polish, even though I don't like yellow gold jewelry. This is the right shade of yellow gold too and the silver flakes elevate the polish. It's super sparkly in the sun, but so gorgeous in the shade where you can see the sparkly shimmer.

Yeti or Not: 3 coats plus top coat.  This is totally reminiscent of yeti fur, or fresh fall snow. It's an ethereal shade of gray-white.  There's texture to the polish, so you can leave it as is, or use top coat. I used one coat but it might need two to be fully smooth. This polish is also thick, so you need to really shake it before you use it. I also may thin it for my next use. I love the hint of iridescent sparkle. I see snow manis in my future!

Chai-Huahua: 1-2 coats. Ahhhh I love this creme. If you're in a rush, one coat is all you need. 2 coats gives it a bit more depth though. Chai spice and a fireplace, that's what this reminds me of. I love it.

Haute Mess: 1 coat over Yeti or Not, 2 coats on its own. So this polish is inspired by Vegas glittery shoes. I may or may not have a pair of glitter heels like this. I absolutely love this on its own or as a gradient. It's opaque so one coat really covers the base. Silver, copper, rose gold, and holo. I love this combo.

Spruce Things Up: 2 coats plus top coat. This is totally spruce colored and reminds me of pine trees. This will be perfect for winter tree art! The holo in there is supposed to represent fresh sparkling snow. I love that description!

Ink Again: 2 coats. I love the inspiration of this color, which is the cap of a Bic blue pen! As a teacher, I can appreciate that! Goes on smoothly in 2 coats.

Bling in the New Year: 2 coats. I.LOVE.THIS.POLISH. There, I said it. Just had to get it out there. This is the liquid metal Birthstone finish, which means the polish simply glows. This is totally the aftermath of a New Years Eve party, as it is inspired by the confetti, the fireworks, champagne, everything. I'm already planning a NYE mani with it. I love it.

  1. Sweet baby Jesus The Holy Kale is glorious on you. I've had so much nail drama lately that I haven't been able to swatch mine yet but I will this weekend. You've given me a lot to look forward to.

    1. Holy Kale is my kind of green and the shimmer elevates it. I need shimmer in my holo! I feel a break coming soon so I didn't want to delay :)

  2. The white one is really, really unique. I am so drawn to pale colors lately, and that one is calling to me.
