KBShimmer Fall 2017 Collection – Blogger Collaboration

Hello friends! Today I have a picture heavy post so get ready! The KBShimmer Fall 2017 Collection is pretty massive with 12 blogger inspired shades and 2 that were created by Christy. I was so excited to get these because I love KBShimmer collections and because Fall collections are pretty much my favorite. Let me go ahead and show you my swatches for the collection before I ramble on too long.

KBShimmer Fall 2017 CollectionKBShimmer High-Rise To The Occasion (2 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)

Michelle from Ehmkay Nails wanted a polish that expressed her photos of the holidays in NYC.  The steel of the high-rise buildings, the twinkle of the holiday decor, and the glow of the violet up lighting inspired this crelly polish.  A light gray color, this polish has a soft violet shimmer, while pops of rainbow metallic flakes give this shade perfectly NYC look.

Amy from McPolish gave us beautiful photos of nature at its shining best, from a softly glowing starry sky, to shimmering opals and natural stones.  This super sparkly polish is filled with micro and small holographic glitters, and a red shimmer that shifts to copper, gold and pink.  This holographic polish feels like wearing jewels on your nails.

KBShimmer I Don’t Want No Shrubs (2 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)

Jen from My Nail Polish Obsession is a West Coast gal, so fall for her is full of beautiful flowers and bright colors, just like her inspiration photo.  Those vibrant floral photos spilled into this bright fuchsia pink shade.  Filled with micro golden flakes and shimmer, this hot pink polish will make you wish for warmer days.

KBShimmer Pun-King Spice Latte (2 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)

When Valesha from Peachy Polish sent us photos of her inspiration, a copper tub and terracotta pots, we knew that fall was near.  This terracotta, near pumpkin shade is filled with a subtle copper shimmer, which gives this near crème polish a sophisticated glow to it.

KBShimmer Espresso Yourself (2 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)

Gaby from LacquerLoon sent us some amazing photos to work from.  Rich chocolate, warm coffee, and glimmering clothes in shades of brown, copper and gold inspired this glitter filled shade.  Near in finish to our Mega Flame polishes, this rich brown shade is filled with copper and gold holographic micro glitters for a polish ideal for autumn.

KBShimmer Olive Or Twist (2 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)

Lovely Mishra from Nail It Lovely asked up to be inspired by rich gold tones and soothing shades of olive.  This polish in our holo glow finish is the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe.  A deepened olive color, this polish shimmers with holo glow flakes and a golden flash that shines in the light.

KBShimmer #squadghouls (2 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)

Holly from Miss Holly Berries inspiration photos were filled with the deep olive green shades of the forest, goldenrod yellows and autumn oranges.  The best way I could express that was in a deepened olive jelly filled with glitters that shift in shades of orange, green and gold.  And when naming this polish, I learned that Holly is a huge straight to DVD scary movie fan, so I knew that we had to tie in a campy horror name for this fall polish!

KBShimmer Better Lake Than Never (2 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)

Alicia from Delishious Nails gave us a stunning palette of rich, deep blues, turquoises, and teals to work from, and I knew this would be a perfect fit for our Holo Glow finish.  A jewel toned teal leaning blue, this polish is filled with holo glow flakes that accent a strong turquoise shimmer that makes this polish shine bright.

KBShimmer Peach For The Sky (2 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)

When Antoinette from aricedotcom gave us beautiful photos of autumn leaves against turquoise skies, I knew I wanted to create a soft sky blue polish to bring a pop of color to fall.  This creamy shade is loaded with a peachy copper shimmer, for a soft shade that will make you imagine jumping into leave piles on a bright fall afternoon.

KBShimmer Let’s Fang Out (2 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)

Sam from Sam Nailed It posted a stunning picture of deep burgundy vampy lips as her inspiration photo for a crème polish.  I knew with the glittery polish from Lisa in the same shade it was a perfect match!  The cream polish is almost a plum color, with hints of maroon and aubergine, this is the perfect autumn crème!

KBShimmer Lady And The Vamp (2 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)

Lisa from Cosmetic Sanctuary knew she wanted a deep vampy color burgundy red in our Mega Flame finish, and we delivered!  This almost plum color polish is loaded with holographic glitters, with hints of maroon and aubergine for the ultimate sparkle.  For a fun manicure, pair with Let’s Fang Out!

And my favorite of the collaboration shades…

KBShimmer Northern Frights (2 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)

Judy from Beauty Judy was inspired by the dark night sky and the stunning hues of the Northern Lights.  This shifty shade is the aurora borealis in a bottle.  Filled with holo flakes, this polish shifts based on viewing angle from an emerald green, to a deep indigo purple, to an almost navy, for the perfect sky inspired polish.

And the two additional shades that were created by Christy…

KBShimmer Oh My Gourd (2 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)

Caramel apples, butterscotch, changing leaves and gourds signal that fall is near.  This creamy butterscotch shade is made for fall.  Pair with your favorite sweater, a pair of brown boots and your latte, and lets go head out to enjoy the crisp weather that only autumn can bring.

KBShimmer Stop And Smell The Rosé  (2 coats of polish + 1 coat of Poshé)

One of Christy’s obsessions is rose gold, from phones, to jewelry, to  wine, rose gold is life!  This softly pink, near copper shade is the perfect match for those that like to stop and smell the rosé!

So there you have it! Now, let me start the love. I adored this collection 100%. All of the shades were beautiful and had a dreamy formula. I have to admit that I was a little concerned about the base change, but the quality did not change one bit. In case you didn’t know, KBShimmer is now using a 5-free base and the Fall Collection was the first collection to feature the new base. For all of my swatches, I used 2 coats of polish and 1 coat of Poshé top coat. I didn’t think that any of these shades needed more than 2 coats; however, keep in mind that I like to do 1 thin coat and a second more generous coat. If you’re concerned about removal issues, the following shades will be a little more difficult to remove due to the heavy glitter load: Lady and The Vamp, #squadghouls, Espresso Yourself and Pearls Gone Wild. The 1 polish that gave me the hardest time for removal was Pearls Gone Wild due to the glitter getting all over my skin and cuticles. However, don’t let that dissuade you because it’s a gorgeous polish. As always, I find that letting an acetone soaked cotton round dissolve the polish for a few minutes before removal will give you the best results. My absolute favorite polish from this collection is Northern Frights–Jud did an amazing job with the inspiration and Christy nailed the polish. My other favorite is Stop and Smell The Rosé–what a gorgeous holo! It’s so difficult to pic favorites so I know that you’ll have a hard time picking which ones to buy. These 14 polishes launched September 23rd, 2017 at Polish Con Chicago, with online sales starting Friday, October 13th.  The Fall collection will retail for $9.25 per bottle and can be purchased at kbshimmer.com, Amazon.com and select salons & retailers.

So what do you think of this collection? Which are you favorite shades? Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

    I somehow did not know this was a collaboration collection…neat! I also didn’t know about the base change…you are educating WHILE enabling!
    I think I’ll be picking up High Rise to the Occasion and Oh My Gourd (even though it’s not gonna look good on me, lol). I really like that vampy purple crème on you!

    Olive or Twist and #squadghouls are definitely my favorites. This is a great collection overall.
