KBShimmer Fall 2016 Collection

KBShimmer Fall 2016 Collection – Press Samples

Hey guys! Man, do I have an amazing collection to show you today. First, I’d like to disclose that I received these for my job at Color4Nails. I asked Christy if I could post them on my blog, and she agreed! I’m not technically on her blogger list, but for my position at C4N I will be receiving her collections to swatch for the shop. So, just a little disclaimer! ūüôā This post is picture heavy, so let’s get to the polishes!

Coverage: Near opaque in two coats

Color:  Pale pink

Finish: Super glitter holo

Notes:¬†A new addition to the Mega Flame line, this super sparkly pink polish is amazing! I don’t mind having a bit of visible nail, but you can get full opacity if you sponge on or do three layers. Or you can do a coat over a pink base!

Coverage: Opaque in two coats

Color: Mint metallic

fright
KBShimmer Fright This Way kbshimmer-fright-this-way-side-full KBShimmer Fright This Way

Formula/Application: Went on smoothly with no issues, formula was great. I had this same experience with all 12 colors (how awesome is that??? 12 colors having no issues!)

Coverage: Opaque in two coats

Color: Deep black base with multiple types of grape purple glitter

Finish: Jelly glitter

Notes:¬†This looks like it has curling glitter but it’s just reflective. I only used one coat of top coat and it was super smooth! If you want that super glassy look, use a coat of Gelous and then a quick dry top coat. This polish also comes with adorable purple bat glitter (while supplies last!) What a fun color to end off the KBShimmer Fall 2016 Collection!
