KBShimmer Winter 2015 Collection Swatches & Review

Hi guys! Today I finally have KBShimmer's Winter 2015 Collection to share with you! This collection is made up of 12 polishes and also includes a 13th polish that is this years Toys For Tots polish! Check out all the swatches after the jump!




Brrr-tiful Dreamer is a greyed out purple crelly with aqua, silver, fuchsia and purple glitter. The formula was good, the consistency was good and you get nice glitter payoff. It was easy to apply and the opacity was also nice. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.

 



Chilly Pepper is a red creme. This is a really nice true red, perfect for the holidays! The formula was fantastic, it was a great consistency and applied smoothly and with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Claws and Effect is a navy blue holo. This also had some subtle blue/pink glass flecks in it but I couldn't seem to capture them in photos. The formula was good, it was a good consistency and easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Coal In One is a dark grey holo. The holo in this polish is insane...I was like whoa when I stepped out in the sun with this one on! The formula was great, easy to apply and good coverage. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



For Fox Sake is an orange creme. I really like this one, its an interesting shade of orange. I wore this one as a full mani paired with KBShimmer's Foxy Winter Water Slide Decals. These 2 pair together perfectly! The formula was good, it was a really nice consistency and easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.





How Corn-y is a creamy light yellow crelly with burgundy, gold, orange and red glitter. This is one I wasn't sure about in the bottle because the color combo is a little odd but I ended up really liking it on the nail. Everything works together nicely. Its not a shade everyone will love, but I do! The formula was good, it was sheer at first but it built easily. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



Kind of a Big Dill is a dark green jelly loaded with small and micro silver holographic glitter. Not only is this my kinda green but the name is kind of awesome haha! The formula was good, it was a bit sheer but easy to build. It applied easily and was opaque in 3 coats. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.




Oh Holo Night is a glitter topper with blue and silver holographic star glitter, silver and blue small hex glitter and a dusting of holo shimmer. The formula was ok, you have a fish a little bit for the stars but they are plentiful and easy to grab. Its easiest to dab this one on so you get the glitter where you want it. I used 1 coat plus top coat over Chilly Pepper for the photos below.



Shade

Owl Miss You is a beige crelly with copper shimmer and tiny golden flakes of glitter.  This is overall my favorite of the collection, its a gorgeous neutral with a bit of something extra and special. The formula was good, it was a good consistency and applied nicely. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.




sELFie is a glitter bomb packed with green, red, blue and gold glitter. There may be other colors in there also! This can be used as a topper if you use a very thin coat or you can wear it on its own pretty easily. The formula was good on its own, its a little thick because of how dense the glitter is but I had no issues applying it and the glitter payoff was fantastic. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below. Both photos are in the shade. 




Smoke Signal is a light grey crelly with  orange, aqua and red glitter in various sizes. This is another favorite of the collection for me, its a great color combo! The formula was good, it was a touch sheer at first but it built easily. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.




Toying Around is a multicolored glitter topper in a clear base. This not only has a ton of colors but also a lot of shapes of glitter, there are hex glitters, squares, triangles and circles in here. This polish is KBShimmer's 2015 Toys for Tots polish. $4 from each bottle of this polish sold is donated to Toys for Tots! The formula was good, it wasn't thick and the glitter payoff was great! I used 1 coat plus top coat over Dollish Polish This Is My Home, I Have To Defend It! for the photos below.



Shade

Yule Worthy is a warm burgundy leaning chocolate brown with tiny metallic micro flakes of glitter. On me this tends to look purple most of the time but I'm guessing it may lean more brown depending on your skin tone. The formula was great, it was easy to apply and the opacity was fantastic. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.


Shade

  2. How does Kind of a Big Dill compare to Picture Polish Kryptonite? They look similar to me.

  3. I don't own Kryptonite anymore so I can't compare them side by side but I believe the glitter is a bit different. the Picture Polish shade has more of a smaller flecked looking glitter

  5. Yay! I've been waiting for your review of this collection. I agree that Owl Miss You is the best. I need at least half of these. I was hoping to see Fleece Navidad on you because our skin tone is similar and I'm on the fence about it. Those types usually don't look great on me but I'm always attracted to them anyway. Thanks for this! I was worried you wouldn't be reviewing them at all.
