KB Shimmer 2013 Winter Collection-partial Blogger Collection

*Press Sample*
Tonight, I have five of the eleven polishes from the blogger collaboration from KB Shimmer!  She just recently came out with a whopping 22 polishes for her Winter 2013 Collection. These make up half of that collection.
Green Hex and Glam was the idea of Kayla from Kayla Shevonne.  It is a forest green jelly with a good amount of silver holo hexes in different sizes.  
I did not expect to love this as much as I did!  I used 2-3 coats and it layered beautifully.   I had no issues with any aspect of this polish.
I loved the way the silver holo glitters caught the light.  It attracted my attention all day!
This polish was the surprise in the collection for me! A must have and a definite keeper!
The macro shot speaks volumes, I think! Look at the depth of the polish and the shimmer and glitter!
When I saw bottle shots of the blogger collaboration, Will Yule Marry Me? by The Nail Network jumped out at me! I love a polish that has a formal romantic look.  I also loved the story behind it.  Chelsea from The Nail Network was proposed to last season and the holo is for the diamonds in her engagement ring and the holo circles are for the round cut diamond she was given! So romantic...   
Will Yule Marry Me? was everything it promised me it would be from the bottle shots. The navy blue base is tinted a bit gray, and it went on flawlessly. I used two coats and had an easy time getting glitter out. I did not need to fish for the circles either.
This reminds me of a magical winter wonderland!  This is a must have!
I follow Let Them Have Polish on several media outlets and was excited to try on this polish collaboration that she had with KB Shimmer!  I have been told that Cristina loves to celebrate a pink Christmas!  Merry Pinkmas is everything you would want if you love girly pinks and want to incorporate it in your holiday season!
I used three coats of Merry Pinkmas and a lot of glitter came out, but not a lot of base coat. I actually was wiping some of the glitter back into the bottle.    The base is a pink crelly and the glitters are red, green, pink, white and yellow.

Macro shot!  What a unique take on Christmas!
Strung Out is the polish that Candy Coated Tips collaborated on.  It is a great take on Christmas lights!
It is a black jelly base with circle glitter in it the color of lights on a Christmas tree!  An added touch, is the micro glitter in the same colors.
I used three coats and found that extra care was needed so that the large circles did not get hung up on each other. I found it best to wait between coats before applying the next coat, that way the brush would not take glitter that was already applied off the nail on the second or third swipe.
I used a coat of Gelous and a coat of Maya Top Coat to finish it off.  I LOVE the look of this polish!
I was pretty excited to see Snow Much Fun by The Manicurator!  I have been a fan of her blog for awhile.  Snow Much Fun is a playful polish!  It is a sky blue jelly base with matte white glitter in hexes, circles, and....SNOWFLAKES!
I used 2-3 coats for coverage and had easy application.  I fished for the first snowflake, but then got several coming out on their own afterwards! The surprise bonus? Added shimmer!
The snowflakes do stick up a bit on the nail, but shouldn't interfere too much with every day life.
