KBShimmer Winter 2015 Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample

I have been itching to make this post all weekend! KBShimmer’s Winter 2015 Collection is releasing November 2nd, 2015 and I can show you what is coming now!

As with all KBShimmer Winter collections, this is a fun release that includes bling, gorgeous, vibrant colors and a Toy’s for Tots charity polish! This is the 4th Annual edition for the charity polish, and $4 from each bottle of the charity polish will go towards the charity. Last year KBShimmer raised $3,000 to donate – so let’s make this year even bigger!

Let’s take a look, and I’ll start off with the charity shade!

So exciting to see this year’s Christmas collection! As usual, you did amazing swatching of these beauties. Terrible release date though for me…it’s my hubby’s birthday! “Happy birthday hunny…I bought myself a bunch of new kbs polishes to celebrate!” He may support my love of polish but I think that’s pushing it! Haha. For Fox Sake is a necessity, even if it wasn’t gorgeous, the name is too great. Brrr-tiful Dreamer and Smoke Signals are must haves as well! Thanks for the incredible photos!

The quality and the price of KBShimmer really sets them apart from other indies, in my humble opinion. I’ve never been unhappy with any of the polishes from them. Their “Clearly On Top” fast drying top coat is my all time favorite! :)

I definitely need to have a mini haul and grab quite a few of these. I feel like I need to catch up since I am still missing some of the Fall collection .
