KBShimmer; Launch Party Collection - Magnetic Multichromes

Tap tap tap, is this thing on?  Guys, you want to have a seat for this.  Seriously, it's 5:00 somewhere so grab a mimosa or a wine or a coffee and grab a comfy chair and get ready for a long post full of awesome.  KBshimmer has gone through a major rebrand, new labels, new boxes, updates scents, water and oil proof labels on the body care items, reformulated lotions and mani shot.  I told you!  MAJOR rebrand!  But fret not, it's the same great brand you have know and loved for the last 10 years.  To celebrate Christy came up with a jaw dropping new collection, the Launch Party Collection. It's a magnetic multi chrome collection.  Yup, you heard that right, magnetic AND multi chrome.  The Launch Party Collection will be available on 3/15 and you can pick up the entire set of 9, plus a magnet, plus a super cute multi chrome zippered pouch for $90 OR you can buy individual bottles for $10 each.  Ok, since this post is pretty huge lets stop with the chatter and get to the pictures!

Let's check out the fun goodies you get!  As stated before you can get the bundle of 9 polishes plus a magnet plus a cute multi chrome pouch for $90.  Here's the bag, which is a nice multi chrome that you don't see in this picture, the magnetic wand, which works best if you pop it out of the plastic wand.  Nice swag and a great price!

Want to give you a heads up that the magnet does have a bit of a learning curve.  I tried it out several times before I got it just right.  So if at first you don't succeed, try try again!  Also, my photos don't show how awesome the magnetic effect is, I did my best but it was difficult to capture that level of cool in a pic.  


Up first is You Rocket My World, inspired by the planet Earth.  It shifts through shades of grey, lavender an silver.  Loving this shade of green, perfect for St. Patties day and I may be slapping this back on just for that reason.  Great formula and application, 3 thin coats, used the magnet over the wet paint immediately to get the strongest effect.  No topcoat.

A Star is Formed is a holo topcoat loaded with micro holo flakies.  This topper gives the effect of stars twinkling in the night sky.  I have it on over You Rocket My World.  I used 1 coat for a nice, sparkly finish.

Spaced Out is one of my favorites!  It's got such a great color shift!  I see fuchsia, green, teal and silvery shades of all those.  This one is definitely mermaid-ish or space diva-ish.  Another totally great formula that applied nice and smooth and even.  3 thin coats and no topcoat.

No Comet is the most space-y to me.  The deep shade of blue really gives off the feel of deep space and dark skies.  Well, you know I love my inky shades and this one definitely makes me swoon.  I see different shades of blue and purple in this one.  Lovely formula, easy application.  3 thin coats and no topcoat.

Orbits and Pieces, a nice purple to magenta and touches of blue.  This was not my favorite, mainly because I don't go gaga over purple.  I also found that this polish was the thinnest of the collection and I felt I didn't get it to total depth potential with 3 coats.  No topcoat used.

Just A Phase is a shifter that shows shades of red, pink, gold, green.  Under the artificial light I had no idea how many colors this one actually had to show off!  Color me amazed!  Formula and application was fabulous.  3 thin coats for full coverage.  No topcoat.

This is one of my favorites.  If you want a magnetic polish that literally looks like a Cat's Eye stone then get this one.  Thrust Issues has that glow-y look under regular lighting and shifts to so many natural tones in the sunlight and shade!  You're going to see yellow, gold and orange in this beauty.  No complaints about the formula or application.  2 coats and no topcoat.

This is another favorite.  Let's Do Launch is a packed full of peach, pink and greens.  If you want a conversation starter then this is the one for you!  No issues with formula, applied like a dream.  I used 2 coats for full coverage, no topcoat.

Last but not least is Solar Flare.  This is a fiery multi chrome with molten shades of red, orange, yellow and gold.  Formula and application were both great, no problems to mention.  Used 2 coats for total opacity.  No topcoat.
