KBShimmer Winter 2018 Collection

Press Sample

Halloween has come and gone, and as a result the winter nail polish collections are now upon us! I always look forward to the reveals as the seasons change, and KBShimmer's upcoming Winter Collection has many standouts that are sure to make you swoon. Consisting of 12 shades, including a fundraising nail lacquer, this collection perfectly captures those chilly days, whether you are spending them all cozy by the fire with your sweetie or out for festive fun with friends. There is a lot to take in with this post, from the photo reveals to details on the charity polish and news about a special (and Early!!) Black Friday promotion so let's jump on in and get to it!

Fuchsia-nista

There is one in most families.  They claim to have the best sense of style, love to give clothing advice, and tell you exactly where to shop and what does (and does not) look good on you.  Sometimes that person really is in the know, but sometimes they are just a hot mess, and that can make family gatherings oh so fun!    Fuchsia-nista is a nod to all lovers of fashion!  A bright mix of multichrome flakes start with fuchsia, and shift into hues of purple, magenta and orange.  This flake shade is perfect over creams in 1-2 coats, or sponge on in 3-4 for full coverage.

Space-ial Edition

On a chilly winter’s evening, many of us look up at the sky and wonder what is out there.  We look for that one bright star to guide us or wish upon, or just hope to see a glimpse of holiday magic. Space-ial Edition is a deep purple polish with a galaxies worth of holo flakes and strong blue shimmer.  When used with a magnet, the shimmer gathers like the Milky Way, seeming to move with the flick of your fingers for a truly space-ial manicure.  Best in 2 coats.

Yes Weekend!

Being an adult is hard.  We work all day, then come home needing to cook, clean, do laundry, and more, just to wake up and do it again.  By Friday, I think most of us are saying Yes!  it’s the weekend, where relaxing, hanging out with friends, and doing what we want takes priority.  Yes Weekend! is inspired by the freedom of the weekend.  Multichrome flakes boldly shift from a vibrant green to aquamarine, fuchsia, magenta and orange.  This flake shade is perfect over creams in 1-2 coats, or sponge on in 3-4 for full coverage.

So Cordial

When it comes to holiday treats, I love cordial cherries.  That bright red cherry with creamy center and crisp chocolate shell was a favorite of both mine and my grandfathers.  Seeing those red boxes just brings back warm memories.  This warm hued Christmas red shade gleams with a semi metallic finish.  Micro holo flakes add sparkle to the red shade.  Best in 2 coats. 

Sweater Weather

Some people count down the days until Birthdays or holidays, I count down until it is chilly enough for sweaters and leggings. And I know I am not the only one, SNL even has a skit about sweata weatha! This bright and bold green is a nod to sweaters popping up. This uber shiny polish is almost metallic, and pops of micro holo flakes make this polish light up! 

Love Thy Selfie

Today social media is a part of almost each of our lives, and with cameras able to share shots globally in an instant, sharing our self with the world has never been easier or harder.  With IG perfect photos all around, filters and props make those snaps look more perfect then they probably are.  We at KBShimmer encourage you to love yourself for who you are, and to Love Thy Selfie.  Embrace the differences that make you, you!  Love Thy Selfies multichrome flakes shift from a rich indigo, to royal purple, fuchsia and magenta.  This flake shade is perfect over creams in 1-2 coats, or sponge on in 3-4 for full coverage.

I'll Be Chrome For Christmas
Three coats plus KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat

I have to admit it, I love Christmas.  The music, the movies, and the wrapping of presents brings me joy. Like many, the time spent with family is also something to cherish.  I’ll Be Home For Christmas is Christmas in a polish. Like the tatters of wrapping paper, multichrome chrome flakes in shades of red, gold and green pop against the snowy white base.  Best in 2-3 coats.

Flake Expectations

If you live in a colder area, you know the vibe when the forecast calls for snow.  The kids are excited, the stores are packed, and expectations are that it will feel like winter soon.  A few months later, Flake Expectations gives us a whole different feel.  This flake polish is a nod to winter, and the chilly vibe in the air.  Multichrome flakes shift from lime gold, to bright green, to royal blue to navy.  This flake shade is perfect over creams in 1-2 coats, or sponge on in 3-4 for full coverage.

I Cat Even
Two coats plus KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat

Growing up I was a dog person.  Our family had big dogs and little dogs, and even with cats on the family farm, dogs were it, until I met my husband, the cat person.  We started out with one of each, a cat and dog.  Soon we grew to a house of two cats.  After our dog passed, our third cat joined the tribe.  I slowly began to appreciate how unique cats are.  They are smart, willful, affectionate, and wicked and can make humans stay in one place for hours just by sitting on our lap.  Cats are the best.  I Cat Even is deepen navy blue linear holo that in some lights looks blurple.  This dark shade is perfect in 1-2 coats.

Taupe Notch
Two coats plus KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat

There is something about taupe; not quite brown, nor gray, and not beige that feels warm and cozy to me.  The color just pairs well with jeans and leggings, and matches most home d├ęcor, which is why I have a million sweaters and blankets in taupe.  Taupe Notch is a nod to all things cozy.  A creally base swims with holo flecks, while a rose gold shimmer adds a warm glow to this shade.  Best in 2-3 coats.

On Cloud Wine
Three coats plus KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat

There is something about wine that makes it the drink of choice for so many.  Maybe it is the wide variety of varieties, each with a different note from the grapes, the barrel, the age.  It could be that it is just on trend, but no matter the reason, people seem to enjoy a glass, and after a few are On Cloud Wine!  On Cloud Wine is a red leaning grape jelly polish.  Shifting flakes swim in this jelly base, morphing from shades of teal to purple and fuchsia.   This shade deepens in color with coats, so is best in 2-3.

Santa Claws

Each year KBShimmer chooses a charity close to our heart to donate to. This year we have chosen the Terre Haute Humane Society. As a parent of three adopted cats, we are thrilled to be able to donate $4 from each bottle of our Christmas Polish, Santa Claws to this wonderful organization! Plus, we will pick one person that purchased this polish and donate $250 to their local humane society!
Some holidays you cannot think of without thinking of its iconic colors.  For Christmas it is red, green and gold.  When creating this year’s charity polish, I wanted to play with that classic palette.  Santa Claws is a magnetic polish that looks like a bronze gold polish with red background, then when you use with the magnet, a green background sets off the red magnetic accent, while hints of gold shine through with a dusting of holo glitter.  Best in 2 coats.


The new shades will be launching November 15th on KBShimmer.com; each bottle will retail for $10.


KBShimmer will be kicking off Black Friday early! Starting November 15th through November 25th, each purchase of $50 or more on KBShimmer.com will receive a KBShimmer holographic draw string backpack free!  Plus, free shipping equals Priority Shipping!  All orders that qualify for free shipping will automatically be upgraded to USPS Priority Mail. This shipping upgrade will run from November 15th through November 25th on orders of $50 or more.

What are your favorite shades from the new Winter Collection? I'd also love to hear what base shades you would wear these gorgeous flake toppers over!

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

  3. That is a big collection, wow. I love So Cordial - my kind of orangey red shade, but I don't have one with glitter. Taupe Notch is also one of my faves - I love a neutral polish with subtle glitter like that. KB Shimmer is one of my favorites. I may need a nail treat
