NEW at Color4Nails : KBShimmer Fall 2016 collection swatches & review!

Hi everyone, I hope you're all having a great week so far!
Today I have swatches of the KBShimmer Fall 2016 collection. I don't know about you but I'm always super excited about KBShimmer releases. Knowing that there will always be a wide variety of colors and finishes never looses its appeal!

The Fall 2016 consists of 12 new colors : glitters, holos, cremes and shimmers.

Sweet Devotion is a white crelly with a heavy mix of multicolored hex/bar glitters in blue, red, yellow, orange, green and brown. Perfect formula and an easy 2 coats coverage. Shown here : 2 coats plus topcoat.

Tiers of Joy is a beige crelly filled with different sizes of pink, gold and copper holo glitters. A really nice take on the usual nude glitters. Formula was once again particularly easy to work with. I used 2 coats plus topcoat.

Sage It Ain't So is a sage green crelly with copper and lavender glitters as well as a silver holo hexes and micro glitters. Again, great formula and application and an easy 2 coats coverage.

Little Boy Hue is a soft pastel blue with hints of periwinkle. Smooth and even with its crelly formula, I used 2 coats plus topcoat.

Grin And Gerbera It is a magenta creme with a smooth and glossy finish. Nicely pigmented and butter smooth, I used 2 coats plus topcoat.

The Best Mum Ever is a medium lavender filled with pink and gold shimmers / micro flakies. I used 2 easy coats (plus topcoat) and reached sufficient coverage but this is a 2 to 3 coater.

Turning Points is a peach mega holo glitter and a new addition to the KBShimmer Mega Flame line. I used 2 coats (plus topcoat) in my swatches below but this polish can also be used as a one-coat heavy topper.

Flake Me Home Tonight is a minty metallic with silver flakes and holo micro glitters, similar in finish to the birthstone collection. I used 2 coats plus topcoat for full coverage.

Poppy Kisses is a  bright red linear holo. Great formula, a glossy finish and a strong linear flame. I used  easy coats plus topcoat.

Orchidding Me?  is a warm purple linear holo. Super glossy, smooth and easy to work with, 2 coats plus topcoat are shown below.

Oh My Ganache is a deep chocolate linear holo. Smooth and glossy, this creamy  holo was perfect with 2 coat plus topcoat.

Fright This Way is a black crelly mixed with different sizes of purple glitters and a touch of holo micro glitters. I used 2 coats plus topcoat but I'd say this is a 2 to 3 coater.

Overall :
Another great KBShimmer collection with flawless crelly-based gitters, strong holos and butter smooth cremes. My top picks: Poppy Kisses, Orchidding Me, The Best Mum Ever and Turning Points.

The KBShimmer Fall 2016 is available for purchase on and retails for $9.25 each. 

Thanks for looking and have a great week!
