KBShimmer Holiday 2016 Collection Swatches & Review


Hi guys! Hope you all had a nice weekend and Halloween! My weekend was great, I went and saw Gwen Stefani which was super fun! Today I have the Holiday 2016 Collection from KBShimmer to share with you! I also have their holiday promo items to share with you! Check out the swatches after the jump!
 



A Walk In The Park-A is an orchid creme. The formula was great, it was a really nice consistency with great opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Bling In The New Year is a silver holo and flake base packed with ultra chrome flakies. This one is a stunner, it is super sparkly in person and perfect for ringing in the new year...or just whenever! The formula was good, it was a good consistency and easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



Chai-huahua is a brick red creme. This has a little bit more of a brown tone than my camera could pick up, its a nice change from the typical holiday kind of red. The formula was great, it was easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Get To The Poinsettia is a red holo. This is super saturated so the holo doesn't show as great in photos as it does in person. The formula was great, it was smooth and easy to apply with great opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.




Haute Mess is a glitter packed with silver, copper, rose gold and holo sparkle. This can be worn on its own or over another polish. I prefer it as a topper, personally.  The formula was ok, it was a little chunky to apply but its so packed with glitter that it kind of has to be. I used 1 coat plus top coat over A Walk In The Park-A




Have A Look-ski is a teal blue holo. This has a nice smokiness to it that I really enjoy. The formula was good, it was a good consistency and easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Ink Again is a brighter blue holo. Next to Have A Look-ski you can really see the difference in blues and the smokiness that this one doesn't have. The formula was good, it was easy to apply and had good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Just Duvet It is a rich purple jelly shimmer with a pink flash and sprinkle of holo. The formula was good, though this is a jelly the opacity is good. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.




Ornamentally Flawless is a glitter packed with gold, fuchsia, blue, green and silver glitter in various sizes. This can be built up on its own or layered, I prefer it layered. The formula was ok, it was chunky but it has to be because of the amount of glitter. I used 1 coat for a black creme plus top coat for the photos below.




Royal To A Fault is a royal blue that shifts between violet and purple. The shift is nice and noticeable in this depending on the lighting, I noticed it was mostly the blue with purple along the edges on me in my normal office lighting. The formula was good, it was a good consistency and easy to apply. The first coat was a little patchy but it was evened out with the second coat. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



Soot And Ladders is a black jelly loaded with multicolored shimmer. The formula was good, it is sheer so that the shimmer shines through but it builds up easily and is easy to apply. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.




Spruce Things Up is a green jelly loaded with holo and silver micro glitter. This is my favorite from the entire collection, the way it sparkles when the light hits is just gorgeous. The formula was good, it was a good consistency and easy to apply. It does dry with some texture from the micro glitter but nothing a coat of top coat can't smooth out. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



Take Me For Granite is a light grey crelly with black, white and silver glitter in various sizes. The formula was good, it was easy to apply and had good glitter payoff. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.




The Holy Kale is a green holo with a blue flash of glass fleck glitter. The formula was good, it was a good consistency and easy to apply. It was on the sheer side so that the blue flash could come through but it built up easily. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.




Whiskey Business is a warm gold metallic with a subtle holo and silver flakes of glitter. If you are pale and pink toned like me this kind of gold looks good, I think the warmth of it makes it easier to wear. The formula was good, it was a good consistency and easy to apply. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.



Yeti Or Not is a pale grey with iridescent and holographic glitter. The formula was not my favorite, it was thick and can  be a little tricky to apply. It does with a lot of texture so you'll need 2-3 coats of top coat to completely smooth it out. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.

 

Below are the promo offers that will be available when you purchase the Holiday collection. You can also buy these on their own if you want an extra or aren't spending enough to get them as a gift with purchase! These will be available from 11/1/16 to 12/31/16 or as long as supplies last.

First up is a holographic makeup bag. This bag is awesome! Its super holo and is a nice quality. It has the KBShimmer logo in the lining and is a great size for traveling with polish or throwing in your purse to keep organized. Mine is currently in my purse, I've been using it to hold nail stuff I like to carry around with me. This is $12.95 on its own or you can get it for free with a $75 purchase.


The other 2 items available for the holiday are a mini nail file and a small nail polish charm. The charm is super cute, its got KBShimmer's flower logo on it, I've got mine on my keys.
