KB Shimmers With This Year's Winter Collection!

OK Lacquer lovers... I am in true blue stuck like glue in love. KB Shimmer is one of my favorite brands. I only had, yes I said had, 12 of their polishes, before the release of their winter collection a couple of weeks ago, and I was first in line as soon as they were available on the site to purchase some of them. Since I could not choose. I first picked 6 and checked out, but I kept going back yearning for more. So, I went back for a seventh and final purchase as that is all my budget would allow. Tonight I am reviewing five of them for you.

Let's get to it shall we?

First up is the absolutely adorable All Elf'd Up. It is a superb blend of teeny bar and different size hexes in red, white, and green. I loved this and think it is perfect for the holiday season. It reminds me of the red and green balls hanging on the outdoor Christmas tree, covered with that little bit of snow, reflecting the lights hung around its branches.

The KB Shimmer web site describes All Elf'd Up as, "Hex glitters and micro slices add festive cheer to this polish.  Sliver glitters add a unique twist, almost appearing to be a metallic white.  Best in 3 coats or layered over white."

Here is the one photo I have of this polish because my camera decided to take a trip to crazy town during the shoot and all of them but this one were super blurry. This is two coats with HK Girl by Glisten & Glow on top.

Next up is another glitter polish from the collection called When the Doves Sigh. This is a really pretty gray polish with super sparkly pink, teal, purple, and silver colored circles and squares in various sizes packed inside. There is also some very teeny slivers in there. This polish reminds me of mittens and scarves I wore as a child in winter time.

The KB Shimmer site describes this polish as, "A warm gray color, this creally is filled with fuchsia circles, square and hex glitters.  Turquoise, sapphire, and chrome hexes, micro slices and circles swim among micro holographic sparkles."

I have to honestly say I have wore this polish a few times now and unless the hexes are super duper teeny, I have no hexes in mine. I am not sure if this is an error, or if some batches don't have it. I love mine the way it is though.

Next we Have two of my favorites from the collection, only because I have always had a thing for multi chromes. First off, we have Pretty in Punk. Now, I don't think this is necessarily a "holiday/winter" polish, so it could be bought any time :)

This polish has too many shifts to list all of the colors, and I just could not capture all of them on camera. So I will just get to the description and the photos.

KB Shimmer describes this polish as, " This polish shifts from a pretty pistachio green, to a bright green, to silver, to a soft pink almost lavender color depending on the light and viewing angle. Best in 3 coats, or 1 coat over black, this polish is one you will have to see to believe!"

Let me start off by saying that I tried this polish over black, and for me holo multi chromes over black ruin the holo effect for me. I prefer to do a couple layers of the polish all by their lonesome. So for this polish I did two coats with a top coat of HK Girl by Glisten and Glow.

This next one is my FAVORITE of the new releases and it's called Myth you Lots. IT IS BEAUTIFUL! Why? Because of three very important things... its a holo, it's a multi chrome, and it's purple!!!
Here is the description from the KB Shimmer website, " This polish shifts depending on the angle and the light, from blue, to purple, to red, and more.  I most often see a beautiful indigo color. Best in 3 coats, or 1 coat over black, this polish is one you will have to see to believe!"
I used two coats over clear Nail Envy by OPI, just like above, topped with HK Girl by Glisten and Glow.

Finally, for your viewing pleasure I have I Only Have Ice for you. A GORGEOUS Icy Holo Glitter topper. It goes over just about anything and makes it sparkle like diamonds. This polish reminds me of the sun shining on top of a fresh layer of fresh snowfall and the flakes sparkling.
KB Shimmer described this polish on their site as, "Shimmering white flakes are set in a clear base.  Holographic glitters in small sizes mimic the sparkle you get from snow.  Layer this topper over any color to add sparkle and shimmer."
I layered this over the top of Myth you Lots and OH EM GEE ladies!!! I was mesmerized!!!!I then added a coat of HK Girl by Glisten and Glow.
