KBShimmer Fall 2015 Collection Swatches & Review


Hi guys! Today I have the KBShimmer Fall 2015 Collection to share with you! This collection has a mix of finishes, everything from cremes to holos and even a glow in the dark polish. These are available today, in fact I think they are already up on KBShimmer's website! Check out all the swatches after the jump!



Be Scareful is a white crelly base with black and orange glitter in various sizes and shapes. There are hex, triangle and star glitters throughout the polish. This also glows green in the dark. The formula was good, it was a little sheer on the first coat but easy to build up and opaque in 3 coats. I did have some issues getting the star glitter out so if you want those you may need to fish for them.



Here is Be Scareful in the dark. It's not quite as glowy and vibrant in real life...my camera seemed to make it brighter than it really is.




Breaking Blues is a periwinkle blue. Depending on the light and your skintone this can lean a little bit to purple but on me it looked blue most of the time. The formula was really nice, it was a great consistency and applied smoothly and easily. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Carpe Denim is a dark blue jelly base loaded with multiple sizes of silver holographic glitter. The formula was good, it was a touch sheer on the first coat but completely opaque with the second. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



Shade

Dark & Twisty is a black jelly-ish base with multicolored glitter in multiple sizes. For those wondering if this is similar to The Black Knight from Butter London, its got the same feel but the glitter is pretty different. The formula was good, it starts our sheer but builds really easily, I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



Shade

Fig-Get About It is a dark burgundy purple holo. The holo is nice and strong and the shade of purple is pretty much perfect for Fall! The formula was great, it was a good consistency and had nice opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below. 





I Feel Gourd-geous is a golden champagne glitter. The glitter is super fine and most of it is holo so it really sparkles out in the sun. The formula was good, its sheer but buildable. You could probably get away with using this as a topper but I prefer it on its own. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



I've Seen Sweater Days is a muted blue crelly loaded with blue, green and silver glitter in various sizes. The formula was good, its sheer at first but builds easily. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below. 



Shade


Open Toad Shoes is a dusty olive green crelly with blue, gold and purple glitter along with a tiny bit of holo sparkle. This is one of those polishes you'll either totally love, or totally hate. I love it...I'm sure no one is surprised...I love weird greens like this! The formula was good, it was a touch sheer on the first coat but was opaque with the second. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



Shade


Soul Deep is a dark midnight blue creme with purple undertones. This does have a tendency to look black in most lighting. The formula was fantastic, it was a perfect consistency and very easy to apply with great opacity. I used 1 coat for the photos below.



Such A Vlad-Ass is a dark berry creme. Depending on the lighting this does look a bit deeper, out in the sun its a lighter berry and indoors it was a much more vampy looking berry. The formula was good, it was smooth and easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Talk Qwerty To Me is a teal glass flecked polish. This flecks shimmer blue and gold with pops of green. The formula was good, it was sheer but buildable. You could probably layer this over different base colors to get a totally different look. I used 3 coats on its own for the photos below. I didn't have staining with this but these types of blue can stain so it would be a good idea to use a couple coats of base coat.



Shade

Teal It To My Heart is a teal blue creme. This is based off one of the Pantone colors of the year, Biscane Bay. The formula was fantastic, it was a great consistency and easy to apply with perfect opacity. I used 1 coat for the photos below.

  4. Hi Jen, I'm always so pleasantly surprised at how reasonably KBS polishes are priced... with a level of quality equal or in some cases superior to the mainstream salon brands.

  8. Was 'I Feel Gourd-geous' hard to remove? I love micro glitters but the removal seems to be a crap shoot. Sometimes they come off easy, sometimes they cling tighter than my favorite jeans ;) lol

  9. I haven't worn it yet aside from swatching but I'd probably use a peel off base just in case since like you said they can be difficult sometimes!

  10. Could you possibly do a comparison of Talk Qwerty to Me with OPI Catch Me In Your Net? The OPI is a lemming of mine, so if there's a reasonable facsimile, that would be awesome! TIA!
