KBShimmer, a brand I've long admired from afar, is making its debut on my blog today! Color4Nails has provided me with the new Autumn collection which consists of a variety of beautiful finishes including holo, shimmer and creme. I have swatches of all 12 to share with you today.
I love collections that include a variety of finishes, I prefer them over a bunch of holos or glitters, and it also keeps swatching interesting! There's definitely plenty of choice here and I defy you to find at least one you don't love.
Little Boy Hue is a dusty baby blue creme, inspired by the Pantone colour of the year 2016, Serenity. Lovely formula for such a pale colour, perfect in 2 coats.
Oh My Ganache is a chocolate holo. I just love rich brown holo shades, they're so perfect for Autumn. This has a rainbow holo flash that doesn't show too well in my pictures but is beautiful in real life. 2 easy coats
Orchidding Me? is a rich orchid holo. I never get sick of beautiful orchid shades like this. 2 coats
Poppy Kisses is a bright, orange-toned red holo. 2 coats
Sage It Ain't So is a mint creme/jelly base packed with lavender, copper and silver glitters, plus a touch of tiny holo glitter. This has an easy to apply formula and is very easy to build to 3 coats. Shown is 3 plus top coat
Tiers Of Joy is a cake batter coloured creme/jelly base with gold holo glitter, pink glitter and warm nutmeg glitter. This feels sort of festive in a way!? Definitely one of my favourites! This requires 2-3 coats, I used 3 plus top coat.
The Best Mum Ever is a deep lavender with pink/red micro flakes. Super subtle and pretty, this is a fun way to wear lavender polish. 2 coats plus top coat
Flake Me Home Tonight is a minty metallic, made up of silver flakes and holo sparkle to create a foil-like finish. This is super pretty and unfortunately my pictures don't do it enough justice, it sparkles much more in real life. I used 3 thin coats for full coverage, plus top coat.
Turning Pointe is a new addition to KBShimmer's Mega Flame line. It's a pretty, girly pink jelly base with tons of holo glitter. This dries quite gritty due to all the glitter but smooths out nicely with top coat. I've used 3 thin coats
Sweet Devotion is a white creme/jelly base with multi-coloured, candy inspired glitters. This is sheer to begin with but the formula is great so its easy to build up. I used 3 coats plus top coat
Fright This Way is a Halloween inspired polish (which excites me so much, I love Halloween) with a black jelly base and tons of purple glitter, plus a sprinkling of holo dust. This is so squishy! I used 3 coats plus top coat
I'm happy to say KBShimmer lived up to my expectations and I hope I get to feature more of their polishes here in future. This is a varied, colourful Autumn collection with something for everyone. Let me know your favourite!
My picks: Fright This Way, Sage It Ain't So, Oh My Ganache, Flake Me Home Tonight
