KBShimmer Fall Collection 2014 Preview (Partial)

Gifted Sample

Greetings, dear readers! I am excited to be sharing with you some of the polishes that will be part of KBShimmer's upcoming Fall Collection! This is just a partial review as Christy, the colour-creating master behind the brand, has unfortunately had to have an unexpected surgery, but I'm sure the remainder of the collection along with all the details will be make available once she is feeling better. Hopefully Christy is focusing more on her recovery and not stressing out about polish. Until then, how about I share a preview of some of the polishes that are going to be coming! I have three of them swatched for you, and I have bottle shots of three at the end of this post. Let's check out some gorgeous polish!

How You Dune?
How You Dune? is a gorgeous greige cream. I have been blown away by the quality of KBShimmer's cream polishes, and this is no exception. It is incredibly pigmented, and I almost got away with using just a single coat of polish. I used two coats of How You Dune? and topped my nails off with KBShimmer's Clearly on Top quick dry top coat.

Kiss & Spell
Over How You Dune?
It's no secret that Halloween is my favorite holiday, and this star themed glitter top coat is perfect for Halloween manicures! I'm already starting to plan my nail art, and you will be seeing this one again. I didn't have to dig around for any of the star-shaped glitters; they also spread on the nail nicely with a little dab here and a dab there. I used a little over one coat of this glitter topper: one coat plus a few dabs filling in a little more open spaces. I sealed everything in with a coat of Gelous and then Clearly on Top quick dry top coat.

Up & Cunning
Indoors with "Daylight" Bulb

Outside in Sunlight
I am loving this deep teal holographic polish! The linear holo effect is obvious even indoors, and it just comes to life in the sun. I love darker teal shades like this for the fall, and I am so glad to see that KBShimmer has one in their lineup! I used two coats of Up & Cunning and topped off my nails with Clearly on Top quick dry top coat for these photos.

These are the only polishes I have to share swatches, but here are three more upcoming shades!

Hugs & Wishes
Lavender Cream
2 Coat Coverage

Dusty Navy Cream
1-2 Coat Coverage

Rust No One
Rusty Orange Linear Holographic Polish
2-3 Coat Coverage

Christy already has a fun assortment of shades and finishes for the fall for us to choose from, and I am excited to see what else she has up her sleeve! Her health is more important than polish though, so let's all wish her an easy recovery from her surgery. Be sure to keep an eye out on the KBShimmer Facebook page for updates and more details on this beautiful collection.

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
