Press Sample
Hello loves! So today I am excited to share some happy news that I received recently! I have been lucky enough to be chosen to review for one of my favorite polish brands, KBShimmer! I have followed this brand for sometime now and I am pretty obsessed with their cream polishes as well as their crelly polishes which they are very well known for. If you don't already own any KBShimmers I highly recommend you try them!

Today I have their Winter 2016 collection to share with you. This collection consist of sixteen polishes in a wide variety of shades and finishes that are perfect for the upcoming holidays! Because there is so many in this collection I will be breaking my review up into two posts so I don't overwhelm you with photos all at once. Here is the first eight polishes! 

KBShimmer-Winter 2016 collection

KBShimmer-Yeti or Not
KBShimmer-Yeti or Not
Description:
Yeti or Not is described as pale gray polish that is loaded with iridescent and holographic glitters. This can be worn alone to leave you a fun textured finish or with a top coat for a smooth finish. Yeti or not is inspired by freshly fallen snow.

Formula & Application:
I applied three coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Due to the glitter packed formula, application was a little on the heavier and difficult side then I am used to. But as long as I waited a good amount of time between each coat and used thinner coats while applying then I didn't have issues. As stated on their website description this is a very textured polish so you will need 1 or 2 coats of top coat if you want a smooth glossy finish.

KBShimmer-Get To The Poinsettia
KBShimmer-Get To The Poinsettia
Description:
Get To The Poinsettia is a linear holographic red polish. As red as Santa suit, a candy cane stripe, or the perfect poinsettia, this red holo polish deepens with every coat. 

Formula & Application:
I applied two coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Formula was great and applied very well. Depending on your application you can probably get away with only using one coat, but I always do two for good measure. My photos don't do the linear holo justice, this is definitely the strongest red linear holo that I own and I can't wait to use it in some Holiday Nail Art as well as some Valentines Nail Art!

Formula & Application:
I applied two coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Formula was great and applied well.

KBShimmer-Whiskey Business
KBShimmer-Whiskey Business
Description:
Whiskey Business is described as a warm, golden yellow metallic polish loaded with metallic flakes and a scattering of micro holo glitter.

Formula & Application:
I applied two coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Formula was great and applied easily. Due to it being a flakie packed polish it does dry slightly textured and will need a top coat for a smooth, glossy finish.

Description:
Royal To A Fault is described as blurple micro glass flake polish that shifts from blue to violet at different angles. 

Formula & Application:
I applied two coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Formula was great and applied easily. Just like Whiskey Business, due to it being a flakie packed polish it does dry to a slightly textured finish and will need a top coat for a smooth finish.

KBShimmer-Bling In The New Year
KBShimmer-Bling In The New Year
Description:
Bling In The New Year is described as a colorful shifting flake polish in pinks, greens, gold and blues dancing among silver holo glitter and metallic flakes. Shiny silver hats, half glasses of gold champagne, noise makers long forgotten, all covered with a dusting of confetti are a signature of New Year’s Eve parties, This polish is inspired by that aftermath.

Formula & Application:
I applied two coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Formula was great and applied easily. Due to it being a flakie packed polish it does dry slightly textured and will need a top coat for a smooth, glossy finish.

KBShimmer-Ornamentally Flawless
KBShimmer-Ornamentally Flawless
Description:
Ornamentally Flawless is described as a jewel toned glitter polish sparkles in shades of turquoise, fuchsia, gold, green and sliver. This polish is perfect worn over your favorite cream, but is loaded with glitter for full coverage. 

Formula & Application:
I applied one coat over KB Shimmers 'A Walk in the Park' on my middle and ring nails. And I also sponged it on my index and pinky nails. This can be worn alone or as a topper. It is so heavily packed with glitters that the application is a little on the thicker side but still easy to work with. You will definitely need one or two coats of a top coat for a smooth finish.
