KB Shimmer Fall & Winter Collection 2015

*The products mentioned in this post were sent to me for review, free of charge. All opinions are my own & 100% honest*

The KB Shimmer nail polishes are new to me; this is the first time that I’ve tried this brand so I took a little longer preparing for the review so I could get a good feel for wear time, application, etc, I have 6 polishes to share with you today, each one is pretty different. 

Let’s start with the Fall Collection.

The first shade is Breaking Blues.

This is a periwinkle shade and it’s a cream formula.

I found this one to be super easy to apply and the consistency was good. It didn’t apply streaky either.

Next is Soul Deep.This is a deep navy blue & also a cream. This one applied very well and was opaque in a single coat. The consistency on this one is great, too.

The next 4 are from the Winter Collection.
Toying Around is a glitter topper with glitter of all colors & shapes, including micro glitter. This polish is also the 2015 Toys for Tots Charity Polish & $4 of the purchase of each bottle will be donated to Toys for Tots.
Next up is Owl Miss You, a beige with neutral undertones, golden flakes and a copper shimmer. This polish is opaque in 3 thin layers. The formula dries fairly quickly as long as you use thin coats, so it’s not an issue.
Coal in One is a charcoal gray holo polish. It’s gorgeous & the formula on this one is so smooth and easy to apply. It’s opaque in two coats.

Lastly, we have Yule Worthy, which is a deep brown with very burgundy undertones; it has a very strong burgundy pull. It has micro metallic flakes as well. This one is opaque in 3 thin coats.

The colors in this collection are gorgeous and there are so many others available that I really want to buy. A few of my swatches are a little messy as I also have on acrylic nails so they stain really easily and get polish trapped around the edges & it makes them look uneven. I don’t believe that the acrylic nails affects how the apply or dry, but it does affect their wear time because it stops the natural oils of your nails from affecting your polish, so I had Soul Deep on for 2 weeks with no chipping. I’d guess in comparison, on natural nails it would last around 1 week in comparison.

Overall, I really enjoyed these polishes. I hope this review and the swatches are helpful for you.

Thanks for reading!
