Good morning beautiful readers! With Summer winding down I am getting pumped for Fall. It's my favorite season you know. Of course stores already have Fall clothing out on the racks, beauty stores have darker colors displayed and nail polish companies are launching gorgeous, rich colors. KBShimmer is one of those brands an I have the new Fall 2016 collection swatches and ready to share with you! The Fall collection consists of 12 new shades and they will be available on 8/19. These definitely got me excited or the season change. So let's jump on in and check out the new polishes!

Sweet Devotion is a white crelly with hex and micro alive glitters in a variety of shades. It's inspired by a candy wrapper. I really like this color, but I've also become a huge fan of crelly with glitter. It's definitely one of my favorites from the collection. Formula and application were both great. I used 3 layers and topcoat.
Tiers Of Joy is a sweet concoction, soft cake batter colored (tannish-yellow) filled with gold holo glitters, nutmeg and pink glitters. Very unique shade! It's easy to wear like a palette cleanser too. Formula and application were great. 3 coats and topcoat.
Sage It Ain't So is a soft sage green filled with copper, lavender and silver glitters with holo dust. It's another unique shade and I really like it! Formula and application were both aces. I used 3 coats for full coverage and topcoat.
Little Boy Hue is a soft baby blue that was inspired by the 2016 Pantone color of the year Serenity. It's a perfect shade of blue to transition between Summer and Fall. It's actually a great shade for the entire year. This was super creamy and opaque, fantastic formula and application. I used 2 layers, no topcoat.
WHOA, Turning Pointe is gorgeous! It's a the newest addition to the Mega Flame line. This a soft peachy pink color inspired by ballet slippers and tutus. It's definitely delicate and sparkly! Formula and application were both awesome. I used 3 layers (remember, I paint in thin coats) and topcoat.
Grin And Gerbera It is another amazing creme. It's a warm deep pink with a kiss of red. I have a feeling Grin And Gerbera It and I are going to be good friends this season, especially since it's one of my favorites from the collection! Formula and application were stellar. I used 2 layers and no topcoat.
The Best Mum Ever is a deep lavender with pinky red micro flakies. I love how the tiniest addition adds so much interest to a polish. This is a gorgeous purple that's sure to please purple fans. But it will also speak to those of you who are obsessed with flakies! Formula and application were great. I used 3 coats and topcoat.
Flake Me Home Tonight (yes, I get THIS song stuck in my head every time I read or type the name of this polish) is a minty metallic polish packed with metallic flakes and holo sparkle. Love this color, love the finish. It's the perfect mixture of cool - the color, and flashy - the finish. Flake Me Home Tonight is one of my top picks from this collection. Formula and application were great. I used 3 coats and topcoat.
Here come the holos! Poppy Kisses is a bright orange toned red (best color ever!) linear holo inspired by poppy filled fields! You know I love it! Beautiful color, beautiful formula, beautiful application. Pretty much perfection in a bottle and then on your nails. I used 2 coats and no topcoat. I'm sure I don't even have to say but the holos are my top picks in the Fall collection.
Here's another totally perfect holo, Oh My Ganache. This is a rich chocolate colored linear holo inspired by dark ganache. #1 - YUM! #2 - holy moly this is one stunning brown. Awesome formula and application. I used 2 coats and no topcoat.
Rounding out the holos is Orchidding Me? which I'm sure will be a very popular shade. It's a warm purple base that leans fuchsia with a linear holo finish. Beautiful. The fantastic formula and application are also reasons why you'll love this polish. I used 2 coats and no topcoat.
Last but not least is Fright This Way, a Halloween inspired polish (YAY!!!) that's made up of a deep black base with holo dust and plenty of purple glitters. Perfect for the holiday or any time you want to rock some dark but fun nails. Formula was squishy and full covering in 3 coats. I used topcoat and then applied a few of the cute purple bats that were included with the polish. You get the baggie of bats with any polish purchased from the Fall 2016 collection.
You know what? Fright This Way is AMAZING with matte topcoat. I think I prefer it this way actually! So here's the same mani with the bats, but with matte topcoat. Perfect!
