KBShimmer Winter 2013 Blogger Collection Swatches and Giveaway!

by Lisa Heath

Tonight I have the KBShimmer Winter 2013 Blogger Collection to show you!  I was so thrilled and honored when Christy from KBShimmer asked me to be part of it, especially when I saw which bloggers were involved.  Plus I had to keep it a secret, and I have been dying to say something for awhile!

This 11 piece collection is really gorgeous.  I love all of the different creations that each blogger created with KBShimmer!  The names along with the color combos are wonderful.

Lets take a look at these 11 polishes!

Christmas Now

Christmas Now – Crystal from Crystal’s Crazy Combos – A green jelly with multi-colored squares, circles, and stars. I used 3 coats for this photo and KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat.

I had no formula issues with any of these polishes. All 10 of the photos have top coat, and I used KBShimmer Clearly On Top for all of them.  The only one without top coat is mine, which has a matte finish and doesn’t require top coat. I love how different all of these polishes are from each other!  These all are absolutely gorgeous and are must haves!

Price:  $8.75 Each (Top coat used is $5.00 per bottle)

Where to Buy: KBShimmer Website and Harlow & Co (for international orders)

And now for a little fun!

KBShimmer was nice enough to send 2 full sets of the Blogger Collection to GIVE AWAY!

Rules are simple – must be 18 years or older, or have the consent of a legal guardian!  I am opening this up to both US and International (I hate leaving people out!) but please understand that if you are international, it will take a couple weeks to reach you!

Have fun and GOOD LUCK!

How do i time stamp my share????

Lisa Heath October 31, 2013 - 8:11 pm

Brenda, when you share it, click on the time it says you posted it (should be in close proximity of the text you shared) when you click it – it will zero out just that post. Copy/paste the URL of that screen :)

WOW.. I have a collection of Deborah Lippman and I was in LOOOVE. WAS. There’s not one single color here I don’t like and for someone who changes nail color sometimes more than once per day (gotta match my outfit).. these are perfect. I just wonder if it’s easy to take back off.
