Throwback Thursday: KBShimmer Sugar Plum Faerie

I have for you today a holiday favorite of mine. This was a KBShimmer winter release in 2012, but was released for this year too. This made my Top 20 of 2012, and has remained a favorite KBShimmer of mine for all time!

Sugar Plum Faerie 
Sugar Plum Faerie is a soft plum violet crelly with berry colored holographic glitters in different sizes, a scattering of purple glitters  along with lime holographic glitters.

Collection: KBShimmer Winter 2012. Re-released in KBShimmer Winter 2014.

Color: I love non-traditional holiday colors, and this fits that perfectly. This color is festive and fits the season, without it screaming Christmas. I love the purple base, and the color of glitters mixed in. These are not colors I would ever chosen to go together in polish, but they compliment each other perfectly.

Formula: This is an easy to use glitter formula. Sugar Plum Faerie was opaque for me in 3 coats, but I added a 4th. 3 coats is really all you need, but if you want the base color to pop a bit more I recommend a 4th.

Price: This is $8.75 on the KBShimmer website.

Overall: Excellent all-around polish for the holidays and beyond. This is my favorite KBShimmer ever, and I have a soft spot for it. I think this is a definite must have in any nail polish collection.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 *Golden* Paint Splatters
Happy Thursday!


  1. What a pretty purple crelly that is. I don't own much colors like that too.

  2. This is really lovely! I never bought this and regretted it! And now it's back! So I should buy it! LOL

  3. I got this polish this year and it's now one of my faves! I just love KBShimmer and always look forward to Cristy's new polishes!

  4. I only have a few KB Shimmers but this is one of them and I love it! It's such a great combo of colors.
