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!

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!

  4. Thank you for leaving directions on how to post the url of our shared post. I have never figured that one out. I love Plum Tuckered out and of course I’d rather be with blue.

    • 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 :)

  6. Omg! I love Plum Tuckered Out and Will Yule Marry Me?

    Super giveaway, thank you for the chance to enter.i have so much time on my hands, any advice for starting a blog for nails or beauty items.

  8. 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.

  9. These are too beautiful! And I love Christmas-y everything so these are a WIN!

  10. Love the whole collection! Your swatches as always are beautiful!

  11. I love these polishes. I really love that blue one with the snowflakes. The Christmas green one is pretty too.

  12. Christmas Now, Snow Much Fun, & Strung Out are absolutely gorgeous!

  13. I’m in LOVE with I’d Rather Be with Blue, Snow Much Fun, Green Hex and Glam, Strung Out and Plum Tuckered Out! The others are gorgeous, too!
