KBShimmer Winter Holiday Collection 2016

Hi there! I’m not going to say happy Monday because I’m feeling pretty miserable right now. I was looking forward to going out trick-or-treating with my nephews tonight, but I got a pretty wicked cold so I’m going to have to sit this one out. I’m also staying home from work which I hate doing because I always feel like I fall so behind on my work. Oh well…I just hope that an extra day of rest will help. Today I have for you some shades from the soon to be released KBShimmer Winter Holiday Collection for 2016. This is a massive 16 piece collection that is sure to please you. I have 8 of the 16 shades to share with you. Let’s check out my swatches below.

Let’s start with the good: the holos in this collection are beautiful. I love how saturated they are and the formula on them is everything you have come to expect from this brand. The one polish I did not care for was Yeti Or Not. The formula was so thick that I couldn’t not get it to apply smoothly. I applied 3 coats to try to get it opaque, but you can still see some patchy areas. I think that for a polish like this, it would be best to layer it over a solid color. It is a pretty polish and has the potential to look beautiful as a topper–but I won’t wear it on its own again. Overall, I think this collection is beautiful and there is something for every taste. The KBShimmer Winter Holiday Collection will launch 11/1/2016 so make sure to head on over to kbshimmer.com to pick your favorites. Thank you for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!

P.S. Please have a safe Halloween!

    Get To The Poinsettia is effin’ gorgeous. I’m gonna need to go hustle at KB Shimmer and work for polish, lol.

    Yeti or Not always jumps out at me. Beautiful swatches! I hope you feel better soon!

    I love this collection but agree with Yeti or Not. I had some application issues, but nothing a little thinner can’t fix for next use!

    that red is so classic

    The Yeti one scares me *shudder*.
    Of course I bought Chai-huahua and Royal to a Fault this morning. *tosses money in air*

    I’ve rarely seen a polish like Yeti or Not actually apply easily. There’s something about that combo of glitters in a white base that always ends up with a thick mess. You swatched it very well.
