KBShimmer Winter 2016 Collection (8 of 16)

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

I have some of the polishes from the KBShimmer Winter Collection to share with you. Today is release day for this collection so these pretties are all available for you to purchase now! This is a great collection in true KBShimmer fashion. There is a great mix of cremes, glitters, holos, crellies, and more. There are also some new holiday scents for their body care line as well as some holiday promos. I'll get to those later in the post. First, is nail polish. I have 8 of the 16 polishes in this collection.

 Bling In The New Year
Bling In The New Year is a silver holo glitter and metallic flakes featuring pink, green, gold, and blue flakes. (2 coats)

Chai-huahua is a warm brick-toned red creme. (2 coats).

Just Duvet It

Just Duvet It is a rich grape shade with a hint of sparkle and some pink shimmery flakes. (2 coats)

Soot And Ladders
Soot And Ladders is a soot black jelly filled with micro flakes in a rainbow of colors. (2 coats)

A Walk In the Park-A
A Walk In The Park-A is a lush orchid creme. (2 coats)

Yeti or Not
Yeti Or Not is a textured pale gray polish loaded with iridescent glitter and holographic glitters. (3 coats plus topcoat)

Spruce Things Up
Spruce Things Up is a Christmas green jelly with micro holo and silver glitters. (2 coats)

Haute Mess
Haute Mess is clear base filled with silver, copper, rose gold, and holographic glitters. (1 coat of A Walk In The Park-A)

Holiday Scents
There will be three new scents (Gingerbread Men, Very Merry Cranberry, and Cocoa & Cookies) added for the holiday season. These scents will be available for a limited time in Mani Shots, Mega Shots, Sugar Scrubs, Picture Perfect Cuticle Creams, and Lotions.

Collection: KBShimmer Winter 2016

Colors: I think KBShimmer nailed it with this collection. I really like a traditional holiday collection and this collection really has awesome traditional holiday colors that are still fresh and relevant for this upcoming season. The colors in this collection are rich and saturated and the variety of finishes offered is always appreciated.

Formulas: I thought 7 of the 8 polishes I tried had a superb formula. The cremes were excellent and smooth. A Walk In The Park-A could easily be one coat, I just did two for the sake of photography. The glitters and shimmers also had great formulas. The only troublesome one of the bunch was Yeti Or Not which had a textured and chunky formula. It was not smooth to apply and I really wish it was created just as a normal nail polish because the color is beautiful and would have been my favorite otherwise.

Price: The polishes in this collection are $9.25 each and are available now on the KBShimmer website. KBShimmer will also be offering holidays promos with orders placed between 11/01-12/31 or while supplies lasts.

Spend $25 or more – receive a chrome nail polish charm with the KBShimmer logo ($2.95 retail value)
Spend $50 or more – receive a KBShimmer branded Mont Bleu purse sized crystal nail file ($4.95 retail value) and charm.  Plus free shipping on your order!
Spend $75 or more – receive a faux leather KBShimmer holographic cosmetic case ($12.95 retail value), nail file, and charm.  Plus free shipping!
**Purchase amount after any discounts or coupon codes

Overall: This is a wonderful holiday collection. I love the selection of colors and it's the perfect collection for those of you who love traditional holiday colors but have KBShimmer's magical touch. The formulas are great and I'm really excited bout the promos and new holiday scents. My favorite colors from this lot are Bling In The New Year, Chai-huahua, A Walk In The Park-A, and Spruce Things Up.

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Paint Splatters

Happy Tuesday!
