Turbulence – a satin matte finish slate grey polish inspired by storm clouds. Silver flakes are surrounded by micro blue and fuchsia sparks inspired by lightning and rain. Best in 2 coats.

This reminds me of a sort of wet cement color with pretty micro blue and pink sparks. I like the satin matte finish.

I could capture the sort of golden green duochrome in the bottle but not easily on the nail.

Teal Another Tail – a dusty teal green polish with a strong pink duochrome shimmer. A color on a mermaid’s tail. Best in 2 coats.

KBShimmer Teal Another Tail with Shipwreck
I painted my nails in a hurry before taking this picture & heading to the Hospital a few weeks ago. I’m wearing the new KBShimmer Teal Another Tail with an accent of Shipwreck.

This made me think of sea glass green with pink glass flecks. This is my favorite of the bunch, which is unusual because normally I don’t like teal green. I love this one a bunch!

Vicious Circles – a blood red jelly loaded with silver holographic circles in two sizes, silver holographic hex glitters and holographic silver micro slices. This works best in 3 thin coats, but those with short nails can get away with 2.

You Autumn Know – inspired by the first snow of the year, a white crelly loaded with fuchsia, gold and orange glitters. Best in 3 coats, or 2 coats over white.

Every Nook & Cranberry – cranberry satin matte polish with subtle pink and gold shimmer. It has blue undertones that work well on most skintones. Best in 2 coats.

You Go Ghoul – a halloween polish meant to be worn year round. A black jelly that sparkles with glitters in grape, berry and orange. best in 2 coats over black or 3 coats alone.

Oh Splat! – a white jelly polish loaded with the 6 rainbow colors in many different sizes. This reminds me of a painters drop cloth, or an abstract splatter painting. Best in 3 thin coats, you can also layer over a coat of white if you want to ensure there is no visible nail line.

KBShimmer Shipwreck Bottle

Shipwreck – Ships lost at sea, churning waters, mythical creatures, and lost treasures,  inspired this polish. I started with a base of a deep blue green color. Then,  added several sized of hex glitters in teals, blues, greens, and purple. I can  almost see these colors being on a beautiful mermaid. A hint of gold, and a pop  of copper sparkle like hidden treasure and add depth to this polish

KBShimmer Fall 2013 Collection, Swatches, Review

I think this is a really interesting collection! There are a lot unusual colors for a fall collection. I think Excuse Me, I Blurpled is spot on for a gorgeous blue-purple, which is a very on-trend color this Fall. I love how unique Vicious Circles is in my collection. Turbulence is another on-trend color for Fall. (See my picks for Fall Colors).

Overall, I think there’s a color in the KBShimmer Fall Collection to suit everyone’s taste!
