I didn’t expect to fall in love with this one but I should have. It’s a perfect blackend blurple. Super rich and Fall appropriate. Shown in two coats, but you can definitely get away with just one.

Dark & Twisty
a black jelly polish loaded with fine metallic glitters in a rainbow of colors
You’ll immediately notice that this is a jelly when you go to apply it as the first coat is perfectly pigmented for a jelly. I used 2 coats above but you can get away with just one if you want it more sheer.

Carpe Denim
a dark denim navy jelly polish loaded with small silver holographic glitters
I love love love this navy blue jelly because it’s a deep enough blue, yet light enough that it it doesn’t appear black. The sliver holographic glitters make me think of the night sky. Shown in two coats.

Talk Qwerty to Me
a shimmering teal polish with pops of blue and gold micro flakes
This one is by far my favorite from the collection. To my eyes it’s a teal blue glass fleck with gold and blue micro flakies. Shown in 2 coats. It’s gorgeous. You can layer it on top of so many different colors for a lot of multidimensional depth.

I also did some layering to give you some ideas with how versatile these polishes can be. For each of the polishes below I used 1 coat of each color.

Can we talk about how cute the names are for these colors? I love them. They’re so much fun! KBShimmer always does a great job with names.

Fig-Get About It, I Feel Gourd-geous, Carpe Denim, Soul Deep and Talk Qwerty to Me are my favorites from the collection. I’m absolutely in love with the combination of Talk Qwerty to Me layered on top of Soul Deep.

I really like KBShimmer’s interpretation of Fall colors and I feel there’s a color or three for everyone. Jelly and crelly lovers will rejoice with shades like Carpe Denim and Dark & Twisty. If you like cremes you’ll fall in love with the smooth formula of shades like Soul Deep or Such a Vlad-Ass. If you love holos, you’ll adore Fig-Get About It and I Feel Gourd-geous. If you want unique, look no further than Talk Qwerty to Me. It’s one of the coolest and most unusual shades I’ve seen in a long time.

What do you think of the colors from KBShimmer? Which do you love?
