KBShimmer Blogger/Winter 2013 Collection

* I received the following products in exchange for my honest review by KBShimmer.

I have for you today 8 out of the 22 polishes in KBShimmer's winter collection. This collection is spectacular. I love holiday polishes and I love KBShimmer. This is a winning combination! I have separated the swatches below into two sections, "Blogger Collection" and "Winter Collection". This won't be last you see of this collection either, I have 6 more on the way that I ordered! 

Blogger Collection

Sand In My Stocking over Sinful Colors Be Happy
Sand In My Stocking is a mix of gold, white, tan, brown, and gray small glitters, gold and blue circle glitters, orange hex glitters, and gold holographic stars. Inspired by Jen The Polishaholic. (2 coats over base)

I'd Rather Be With Blue
 I'd Rather Be With Blue w/ top coat
I'd Rather Be With Blue is a bright sky blue with iridescent shimmer. Inspired by Lisa from Cosmetic Sanctuary.

Snow Much Fun
Snow Much Fun is a light blue jelly base with light blue holo glitter, white glitters, and white snowflake glitter. Inspired by Victoria from The Manicurator. (3 coats)

Winter Collection

All Elf'd Up
All Elf'd Up is a white crelly base with red, white, and green hex glitters and micro slices. (3 coats)

Kringle All The Way over Cult Nails Tempest
Kringle All The Way is a clear base with red, silver, and green circle glitters and small red and green hex glitters. $4 from each bottle sold of Kringle All The Way between 11/1-11/30 will be used to purchased toys for Toys for Tots. (2 coats over base)

Myth You Lots over Cult Nails Nevermore
Myth You Lots is a indigo based linear holo multi-chrome. The color shifts you see are indigo, purple, red, and orange. (2 coats over base)

Urban Camo over Cult Nails Nevermore
Urban Camo is a bright green based multi-chrome. The color shifts you see are green, silver, pink, and purple. *Note: The color shifting power of this one caused my camera to freak out! I tried to capture it the best my camera would allow. (2 coats over base)

Maybe Navy over Cult Nails Time Traveler
Maybe Navy is a rich navy shimmer with a slight duochrome effect, in certain lighting you can see hints of purple and pink. (2 coats over base)

Colors: Excellent color line up with this collection. This isn't even half of the collection! There is a great mix of traditional holiday colors and then there are unique color mixes with a holiday twist! There is something here for everyone. There are glitter toppers, jelly glitters, crelly glitters, multi-chromes, shimmers, and a matte. Everything is covered here!

Formula: The formula on all of these was great. The glitter polishes are jam packed. You will not have any trouble with coverage with any of these. The snowflakes in Snow Much Fun require a bit of effort to get out, but nothing overly troublesome. 

Price: These are $8.75 each on KBShimmer's website. Fear not, you will not see any of these out of stock! That is one of the things I love about KBShimmer! 

Overall: This is a great holiday collection. There is something for everyone. The colors are innovative, fun, and thoughtfully made. I wouldn't expect any less from KBShimmer. KBShimmer continues to impress me. If you had me choose favorites from this set, I'd go with Sand In My Stocking, Snow Much Fun, I'd Rather Be Blue, and Kringle All The Way. Stay tuned though, I'll have more from this collection through out the next few weeks! Be on the look out!

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
