KBShimmer: Winter 2013 Blogger Collection Swatches & Review
Hello all! I just could not wait another second to swatch and post these polishes! This is a Collection that I have been looking forward to since the beginning of Summer when Christy from KBShimmer asked me if I’d like to collaborate on a polish with her for the Winter Collection! Of course I agreed to it and I’m so excited to finally have these polishes in my mitts and to be able to show them to you now. If you want to see what inspired each blogger to create their collaboration polish, you can check out KBShimmer’s Facebook album. There are some really awesome and adorable inspirations for these polishes!
“Snow Much Fun” was created with Victoria from The Manicurator. It’s a light blue jelly with light blue holo glitter, white glitters in several sizes and finishes, a sprinkling of micro holographic glitter, and white snowflake glitter.* This polish is awesome! It’s so pretty, has an awesome formula and has easy glitter pickup. The snowflakes came out of the bottle with no fishing required, whatsoever! 3 coats.
“Christmas Now” was created with Crystal from Crystal’s Crazy Combos. It’s a green jelly with multi-colored squares, circles, and stars.* I love that the base is bright and cheery! It reminds me of modern Christmas decor. Great glitter pickup and formula. 2 coats.
“Merry Pinkmas” was created with Cris from Let Them Have Polish. It’s a light cotton candy pink polish featuring red, green and neon glitters in a variety of shapes.* This. Is. Awesome. The colors are so different but work so well together. I love that it’s pink but still undoubtedly Christmas themed. A wonderful Holiday polish! 2 coats.
“I’d Rather Be With Blue” was created with Lisa from Cosmetic Sanctuary. It’s a light blue matte polish with subtle iridescent shimmer that sparkles like the snow.* Gorgeous! This is a great addition to the KBShimmer matte polishes. It truly is like a bright wintery sky. 2 coats.
“Green Hex & Glam” was created with Kayla from Kayla Shevonne. Kayla wanted a green version of “I Got A Crush On Blue“. It’s a forest green jelly with holographic hex glitters.* Well, I love “I Got A Crush On Blue” so it’s no surprise that I’m in love with this beauty as well. I think I could use this polish in lots of different jelly bases! 2 coats.
“Will Yule Marry Me” was created with Chelsea from The Nail Network. It’s a navy blue crelly with sparkling silver holo circle and hex holo glitter.* I found my bottle to be a bit more gray toned than navy in person. The pictures captured it more navy than my eye could see. Regardless, another absolutely stunning polish. It is so rich and elegant looking. 2 coats.
“I Only Have Ice For You” was created with Sarah from Chalkboard Nails. It’s a clear top coat with shimmering white flakes and holographic glitters.* If you could capture snow in a bottle, I’m pretty sure this is what it would look like. Looking at this polish makes me really crave a beautiful snowy day. It’s the perfect combo of white and sparkly holo glitter. 2 coats over Rescue Beauty Lounge “Reveillon.”
“Strung Out” was created with Jackie from Candy Coated Tips. It is black jelly polish with circle “light” glitters in gold, silver, green, blue, red.* It’s definitely like twinkling Christmas lights in the darkness of night. Such a good idea for a polish. It makes me excited for Christmas so I can see everyone’s Christmas lights! 2 coats by itself. I think I will try it over a black creme next time!
“Sand In My Stocking” was created with Jen from The Polishaholic. It is a golden toned sand inspired polish with pops of orange, aqua, and holographic stars.* This is such an unexpected polish for a Holiday/Winter themed collection but it works so well! It was inspired by “Sand Men” since Jen doesn’t get snow where she lives, in southern California. The colors are something I would never think of but it is SO awesome! It really does look like a sandy beach. It will be good to wear year-round too! One coat over Rescue Beauty Lounge “Naked Without Polish.”
“Plum Tuckered Out” was created with Sheila from Pointless Cafe. It is a rich plum color with blue shimmer.* Who doesn’t love a good plum polish? And what makes this one even better is the glorious blue shimmer that simply shines from underneath. I just love jewel toned polishes for Winter! I think this one will be one of my favorites! 3 coats.
And last but certainly not least, “Toast-ess With The Mostest” was created with yours truly! :) It’s a clear glitter topper loaded with glitters in shades of gold, silver and pink in circles and hex shapes to mimic champagne.* As you all know, I love circular glitter. I also love champagne and the way it bubbles in the glass when it’s poured. When you want to celebrate something, you ALWAYS pull out the champagne, especially for the holidays! So this polish was completely inspired by the bubbly refreshment. I adore how this turned out. I couldn’t have done it any better if I had mixed it myself. It’s just what I imagined in my dream polish. One coat over China Glaze “Pink Of Me.”
These will be available Friday, November 1st on KBShimmer’s website. If you live outside of the U.S. you can purchase these on Harlow & Co‘s website on November 1st too. You can follow KBShimmer on Facebook and Instagram, as well as Harlow & Co. on Facebook and Instagram for news and updates!
