KBShimmer Fall 2014 Collection Swatches & Review

Happy Friday!  What a better way to kick off the 3 day weekend than to show you the Fall 2014 Collection from KBShimmer!

This collection introduces 9 new colors into the KBShimmer family, plus an oldie makes a return!  Lets take a look at these 10 shades.



Jack Is Back!  This classic Halloween polish is back for a limited time.  Jack is a black jelly base with orange hex glitters, a scattering of orange micro slices and black hexes and shreds.I used 2 coats of Jack alone for these photos, but if you want you can do 1 coat over a nice black base to make the orange glitters really POP!

How You Dune?

How You Dune

How You Dune? is a perfect creme greige (not quite grey, but not quite beige… a perfect blend!).  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Hugs and Wishes

Hugs and Wishes is a slightly dusty lavender creme that is probably my favorite of the 3 cremes released.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Stonewashed is a gorgeous dusty navy blue creme.  I used 2 coats for these photos and had absolutely no staining issues at all.

Kiss and Spell

Kiss and Spell full

Kiss and Spell is a Halloween themed polish loaded with a variety of shapes in traditional Halloween colors. Purple, Orange, Yellow and neon green stars swim among black and orange circles and hexes, and hexes in purple, neon green and yellow. I used 1 coat of Kiss and Spell over How You Dune? and I was mildly shocked at how easily the stars came out!  No fishing at all.

Rust No One

Rust No One is a rusty, red leaning pumpkin linear holographic.  Perfect for Fall!  I used 2 smooth coats for these photos.

Flannel Surfing

Flannel Surfing

Flannel Surfing is a faded blue polish with gray undertones and pops of orange, aqua and teal glitters complete this polish.  I used 2 coats for these photos.  This polish is slightly glitter heavy, so applying in thin layers helps to avoid glitter build up.

Leaf Of Faith

Leaf Of Faith

Leaf Of Faith is a favorite from the collection! This is a deep cabernet red jelly with red, orange and gold hex glitters mixed in, and a scattering of holographic glitters.  I used 2 coats for this squishy beauty.

A Raisin To Live

I saved my favorite for last!  A Raisin To Live is a deep burgundy, blackened Ox Blood colored jelly base full of holographic sparkles.  This is the “vampy” cousin to Witch Way.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

I love the mix within the collection.  Cremes, linear holos and glitters give everyone a little something.  I used KBShimmer’s Clearly On Top Fast Dry Top Coat for all of the photos above, which can also be purchased on the KBShimmer site for $5.00.  I had no application issues, but as I said with Flannel Surfing, it is glitter heavy so thin layers work best to avoid a glitter pile up that can result in bumps and lumps.

Price: $7.50 for How You Dune?, Stonewashed and Hugs & Wishes – $8.75 for all others.

Where To Buy: KBShimmer Website and Harlow & Co

Release Date: September 15th, 2014

Don’t forget to stock up on Clearly On Top Fast Dry Top Coat or some Nail Vinyls if you are looking into some fun and easy nail art!

Also remember that Jack is only returning for a limited time, so if you ran out of your bottle from 2012, or want to stock up – make sure to grab it!

So what did you think?  Any must haves for you?
