KBShimmer Partial Winter 2014 Collection

*PRESS SAMPLE*

~KBSHIMMER (partial) WINTER 2014 COLLECTION~

My favorite time of the year is here-when polish brands start showing us their Holiday collections!!  Today, I have six of the eleven new ones to show you by KBShimmer and two of the five returning holiday favorites!  
Let's start with a returning favorite that I wished I had gotten last year-Snow Way...
Snow Way- This snow inspired polish features a pale blue cruelly base with white glitters.  A micro sparkle glistens like fallen snow on a clear winter's day.  Three coats are recommended.  
I used three coats, but could have gotten away with two, except that I noticed the blue was much brighter with three!  I also did an accent nail with White Here, White Now.  I had no issues at all.
 I used one coat of top coat to smooth it all out.  I love the effect it has of snow falling on the nail!
 New for 2014 is Let's Sleigh Together-A pale gray creally, this muted polish features hex glitters in green, navy and pale mint, circles, glitters in blueberry and micro holographic glitters for shine and sparkle. 2-3 coats recommended.
 I LOVE GRAY.  I just do. I pretty much need all gray nail polish and this was no exception! I used 2-3 easy coats.

 Deja Brew-Like a rich cup of java, or quality cognac, this brown polish has red undertones that set off the linear holographic rainbow.  2-3 coats recommended.
 I used two smooth coats with no top coat.  The color reminds me of hot apple cider. Mmmmmm...
 Here she is in the sun.

 White Here, White Now (Texture)-  This snowy white polish is a blustery addition to our textured collection.  Two coats offer more coverage than any blizzard.  
This one had to grow on me a bit.  I used two coats and I needed to wait for it to dry a bit before adding the second coat.  I had no issues with application, but would daresay that this polish would look infinitely better on me in nail art.  I was not fond of the color on my skin tone.  I have, however, seen several different bloggers using this as snow in nail art and it looked fantastic! 

 Kringle all the Way is another returning favorite.  The description reads, A glitter top with circle glitters in red, green, and silver.  1 coat recommended.
 I don't know if this is weird or not, but aside from Let's Sleigh Together, this was my favorite!  WHY did I not buy this last year?!  
 I wore it over a coat of KBShimmer Eclipse (a must-have black for any polish lover.)  I only needed one coat and it went on smoothly.  
 Bam!  I want to wear this again and again!
 I loved it so much, I thought I would matte it.  And YES.
 I just loved the way it looked matted. 
 Turnip the Beet (Texture)- A rich sangria colored base accents holographic glitters in this magenta, purple and red making this a super sparkly textured polish. 2 coats recommended.
 Turnip the Beet was indeed two easy coats.  I had no issues and it did not take long to dry.
 The details are better seen in the macro!
 Too Cold to Hold (Texture)- A rich sapphire blue base is filled with holographic silver, blue and green holographic glitters for a bejeweled textured look.  2 coats recommended.
 Two easy coats was all it took for this gorgeous blue texture!

 Fallen Angle- A vibrant royal blue jelly, this a-cute polish features holographic blue triangles, silver holo hexes, and blue hex glitters with micro sparkles.  3 coats recommended.
 I used three coats to get the delicious blue you see here.  I love the triangles and love the holo glitters as well. The colors play nicely off of each other.

KBSHimmer also has this Limited Edition holiday nail vinyl sheet for sale. I will be showing examples of how you can use them on my Instagram and Facebook page as the holidays get closer.
KBShimmer has also expanded her cuticle oil line! Yay! I loved the first one she came out with and am so excited that she has not only added more, but in some of my favorite scents!  I will be reviewing Raspberry Vanilla and Peppermint on my Instagram and Facebook page soon. 
Parting Thoughts:  This collection pushes the boundaries of what we know in the polish world by adding several texture polishes and some interesting nail vinyls.  The glitter polishes are right on par for what I am used to with KBShimmer's fantastic application and ease of use. She seems to have made something for everyone!
