KBShimmer Fall 2015

Good morning friends!  Happy day happy day!  September 1st and I'm officially bringing out the Fall polish.  That also means Halloween polish, my most favorite kind of polish around.  So the post for today is the majority of the brand new KBShimmer Fall 2015 collection.  This is a great mixture of Fall colors, finishes, and a few nods to Halloween so it's aces in my book!  The Fall collection will be available to purchase on 9/15 and they will range from $7.50 to $10.50 USD each.  Now let's jump in and check out swatches!

*press sample*


Let's start off with one of my favorites, Be Scareful.  This polish consists of mixture of orange and black glitters in a variety of shapes in an almost pure white crelly base.  I haven't seen a Halloween crelly quite like this and I really enjoyed it.  The formula was really great, application was nice and easy and Be Scareful built up perfectly in 3 coats.  I used 1 layer of topcoat.

Surprise!  Be Scareful glows in the dark!  It's pretty darn bright too!  I love that you can see the star glitter so vividly though the glow.  I achieved this with only a short charge from a flashlight.  Perfect polish for Trick-or-Treating on Halloween night!

Here we have Open Toad Shoes.  This is a very interesting polish, it's a unique color and glitter mix.  It's described as a "soft olive green crelly, with pops of navy, burgundy, and chartreuse glitters and holographic shimmer."  I am certain I have no polish like this in my collection.  I have a feeling you are either going outlive or hate this one, but it's another perfect for Fall and Halloween shade - toadally reminds me of a frog (haha you see what I did there?).  The formula of Open Toad Shoes was a bit sheer with the first coat but it built up really nicely in 3 coats.  I finished with a layer of topcoat.

Moving along, this is I Feel Gord-geous.  It's a sister polish to Sun & Games and Alloy Matey, but i's a "coppery champagne color."  Yup, love this color!  It's softer, warmer, totally works for the change in season!  And it's so sparkly!  The formula and application were both fabulous.  I used 3 coats of I Feel Gord-geous and a layer of topcoat.

I've Seen Sweater Days (cute name) is a nice "muted teal crelly" with "pops of cobalt blue, lime green holo and silver glitters."  I like the softness of the color and that the glitters really stand out.  It's nice to have pastel to go with other Fall shades, and I just read in a fashion magazine that pastel is going to be a trend this season!  I've Seen Sweater Days was a bit sheer but it did build up well in 3 coats.  I finished with a layer of topcoat.

Talk Qwerty To Me is a shimmery teal with blue and gold micro flakes.  Such a pretty color and very sparkly!  I really like the finish of this one too - the micro flakes are pretty perfect and I want to see more colors with this finish!  Talk Qwerty To Me had a nice formula and applied easily.  I used 3 coats for full coverage and a layer of topcoat.

You knew there were going to be some kick-@ss cremes in here and Such A Vlad-Ass is gorgeous!  This is a deepened blood red creme with a blue undertone.  Ok so it's totally possible I may have selected this one for the name alone, but I am also a total sucker (haha pun intended) for red polish.  Such A Vlad-Ass is all that and a bag of chips people!  Formula - awesome.  Application - awesome. Get it, that's all you need to know.  I used 2 coats for perfect coverage and no topcoat.

The other creme I have to share is Soul Deep, a "blackened blurple" creme."  So dark, so broody, so beautiful.  I don't think the two cremes I reviewed could be any more awesome if they tried!  Formula and application of Soul Deep were both fantastic.  Soul Deep was so creamy and opaque.  I used 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.

Now you know this is going to be one of my favorites.  Fig-Get About It is a "darkened fig color burgundy" linear holo.  This is one of those colors that I will want to wear ALL THE TIME.  It's dark, but not too dark.  It's a little vampy.  And then it's holo.  Lot's of win!  The formula confused me  a bit - I'd say it was a jelly-like consistency, but it was very sheer with the first coat.  Then with the second coat it was full coverage and awesome!  So there you have it.  2 coats of Fig-Get About It and no topcoat.

Last but not least is Dark & Twisty.  I can't help but think of Twisty the clown from American Horror Story Freak Show - scariest clown I've seen since Pennywise.  But this "Twisty" isn't scary at all.  It's actually quite lovely.  Dark & Twisty is a black jelly polish full of metallic rainbow glitters.  The formula and application were both great!  I really like full coverage jellies and this one was stellar.  I used 3 coats of Dark & Twisty and finished up with a layer of topcoat.
