Good morning and happy day!  Halloween is officially behind us, boohoo.  Now we get to roll into the best eating holiday of the year, Thanksgiving!  It also means seasons will be changing again soon so it's time to start showing you Winter polishes.  KBShimmer released a large collection at midnight so once you've checked out my post you can head over and do a little shopping!  The Winter collection is 16 polishes is an array of finishes.  They all have a wintry look that will be perfect for the upcoming colder months.  The Winter Collection is available now so go forth and buy all the KBShimmer things!  Now we can look at swatches.  

*press sample*


Yeti Or Not is a pale grey polish with iridescent and holo glitters.  It's meant to resemble called snow and has a lightly textured look.  You can wear it with it's natural finish, which I've shown in my pictures or for for a smooth, glossy finish by using topcoat.  My only suggestion would be to let each layer fully dry before adding the next.  Formula and application were both great.  I used 3 coats and no topcoat.





Take Me For Granite is a soft pale grey crelly with black, silver and grey glitters  Being the wife of a mason, I can tell you this totally resembles a beautifully polished stone.  Formula was a little sheer, I used 4 coats and topcoat to finish.  





Bling In The New Year is an eye catching shiny silver full of pink, green, copper, rose gold and holo glitters.  You can wear this alone or one a base color.  I have it on alone in my photos and had no issues with the formula or application.  I have on 3 coats and topcoat in  my pictures.  





Haute Mess is a gorgeous glittery polish full of silver, copper, rose gold and holo glitters.  Bling bling!  It's not only gorgeous but it makes me reminiscent for the days of glitter bombs.  Formula and application were both amazing.  I used 3 coats alone and it built up to full coverage perfectly.  I finished with topcoat.  





A Walk In The Park-A is an orchid creme sure to make any creme lover swoon.  It was thisclose to being a one coater.  The formula was rich and creamy, the application was amazing. I used 2 coats and no topcoat. 




Ornamentally Flawless is a jewel toned glitter polish with pops of turquoise, fuchsia, fold, green and silver.  You can wear it alone or over a base color.  I decided to wear this one both ways, you can see it on it's own on my index and as a topper over the rest of my nails.  Formula and application were great.  I was very please with the amount of glitter that made it on to my nails.  I used 1 coat for the topper nails and 3 coats on it's own.  Topcoat to finish.  





Get To The Poinsettia is a linear red holo.  It's drawing inspiration from classic holiday red things like a candy cane, Santa's suit, poinsettia flowers.  I love a good red and this one is awesome.  2 coats for full coverage, no topcoat.  





Ok ok ok, hold the phone.  Chai-huahua is frickin' gorgeous!  It's described as a warm brick red, inspired by the spices that come together to make a chai...cinnamon, close, anise.  It's a totally unique color to my collection.  I used 2 creamy coats for full coverage and no topcoat.  




Whiskey Business is a warm, golden yellow full of metallic flakes and a touch of holo glitter.  The yellow legit makes me happy.  It's reminiscent of a golden bell or a golden ring.  Formula was opaque and applied like a dream.  I used 2 coats for full coverage and topcoat.  




The Holy Kale is inspired by kale.  That gives me a giggle.  I do love me some kale though.  It's a green linear holo with micro glass flakes that shift from blue to pink.  I love the color, it's vibrant and pretty.  And the holo effect is perfect!  I did find this one a little sheer, but not overly so.  I used 3 coats and topcoat.  





Spruce Things Up is a Christmas green jelly full of micro holo and silver glitters.  It definitely captures that Christmas spirit looking like a tree with lights on it.  Super pretty and blingy!  Great formula and application.  I used 3 coats and topcoat.  





Royal To A Fault is a totally gorgeous royal purple filled with micro glass flakes that shift from blue to violet.  This one surprised me with it's shift.  It was so lovely!  And the formula was fantastic.  I used 2 coats for full coverage and a layer of topcoat to finish.  






Just Duvet It (cute name) is a rich grape shade with a little sparkle and a hit of pink shimmery flakes. This was another one that surprised me!  I'm not generally drawn to purples but the glittery additions and pink shimmer gave this one an extra special something.  Actually I think this is my favorite of the collection!  I used 2 coats and finished up with topcoat.  





Ink Again is a vibrant blue holo.  I like that there are brighter colors in this collection.  Adds some flair!  Formula and application were superb.  I used 2 coats and no topcoat needed.  





Have A Look-Ski is a deepened teal holo.  It's a super lovely and wintry shade of teal to boot!  I enjoyed everything about this polish; the color, the formula and the application.  All aces!  I used 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.  





Soot And Ladders is the last shade in the Winter Collection.  It's a black jelly filled with micro flakes in rainbow colors.  It's twinkling lights strung up on a house at night!  Formula and application were both great.   I used 3 coats and topcoat.
