A soft silvery light grey polish with holographic sparkle and blue micro flakes that shimmer in the sun
The blue micro flakies in this silvery light grey make it unique. So pretty!

Smoke Signal
A smoky, light gray polish with orange, red, and aqua holographic glitters
This is a very light grey, kind of reminds me of dirty snow, with cheerful bright glitter.

A soft beige, neutral tan. This feathery polish is filled with golden metallic flakes and a bit of coppery metallic shimmer
This is a gorgeous, work safe neutral. I love the golden flakies and copper shimmer in it.

A holiday holographic glitter topper perfect for pairing with Chilly Pepper or used alone for a full coverage

You can wear this on top of any cream for a festive look, or layer it several times to create a glitter bomb.

Kind Of A Big Dill
Perfect for those that love a pickle on their Christmas tree! This deep, near forest, green is loaded with micro and small silver holographic glitters that shine in the light.
I really like this green! The holographic glitters in it steal my heart.

KBShimmer Oh Holo Night nail polish

A blingy holographic glitter topper featuring silver and blue holo mini stars
I love that this has mini stars and it’s blue and silver. It’s so wintery and festive.

A dark purple leaning navy holo polish with blue/pink shifting glass flakes.
This is my favorite of the entire collection. It’s gorgeous because of the flakies and holo effect.

KBShimmer Brr-tiful Dreamer nail polish

Brrr-tiful Dreamer
A muted grape leaning grey polish with aqua, silver, purple, and fuchsia glitters
This is an interesting color because it’s sort of got a dusty, greyed grape base, kind of milky (or crelly like?) with the glitters in it.

KBShimmer Coal in One nail polish

A charcoal grey linear holographic polish with 2 coat coverage.
This is another one that I flipped for in this collection. It’s stunning.

KBShimmer For Fox Sake nail polish KBShimmer For Fox Sake swatch KBShimmer For Fox Sake swatch

For Fox Sake
a dusty, red leaning orange cream
The name, plus the color, really drew me in. It’s such a wearable orange.

KBShimmer Toying Around nail polish

Toying Around
A toy inspired polish, filled with a rainbow of colorful matte glitters in stars, squares, circles, triangles and hexes. A bit of micro sparkle adds the perfect touch to this glitter topper. When imagining Santa’s workshop, it’s hard to not think about an explosion of colorful toy parts and wrapping paper and that is exactly what Toying Around looks like! It’s ideal for jazzing up any holiday manicure and makes the perfect stocking stuffer!

This is KBShimmer’s 4th annual charity polish for Toys for Tots. $4 of each bottle of Toying Around will be donated to Toys for Tots. Last year KBShimmer raised $3000 for the charity. From now through Dec. 15th, $4 from the sale of each bottle of Toying Around sold on kbshimmer.com will be donated to the Terre Haute chapter of Toys for Tots.

My favorites in the collection are Claws and Effect (blurple + glass flakies + holo), Coal in One (sooo gorgeous, grey holo), For Fox Sake (red-toned orange creme), Fleece Navidad (light silver + holographic sparkle + blue flakies), Owl Miss You (light beige + gold flakies + copper shimmer), Kind of a Big Dill (deep green + holographic glitters) and Oh Holo Night (silver and blue mini stars + holo glitter). But if I had to narrow it down to just one, it would be Claws and Effect.

What do you think of the KBShimmer Winter collection? See any favorites?
