Today's post features swatches of KBShimmer's Winter 2012 Collection!!!  I'm excited about this post because KBShimmer is an amazing brand! Overall, all the polishes were easy to apply and the formula was great. No complaints!

These will be available for purchase on her website on November 15!

(P.S. I love her lotion and lip balm!)


This is two coats of KBShimmer Cocoa Nut with one coat of top coat! Look how awesome that fuchsia glitter is against that brown base! 


And this one..... This one is my favorite polish out of the collection! This is two coats of KBShimmer Berry Christmas with one coat of top coat. I can't wait to actually wear this one instead of just swatching it! 


This is another stunner in the collection! This is three coats of KBShimmer Sugar Plum Faerie with one coat of top coat. I love that this polish uses holographic glitter.


Next up is KBShimmer All Decked Out. This is three coats with one coat of top coat. The green base of this polish is the perfect Christmas tree green! Love the pops of Christmas colored glitter combined with the stars. Reminds me of a Christmas tree! And I didn't have to fish out the stars! They came out with no extra work.


Another real treat in the collection is this glitter packed polish, KBShimmer Wrappers Delight. This polish is extra special because $5 of every bottle is being donated to Toys for Tots! On the pointer and ring finger, I have three coats with a little extra dabbing to fill in gaps for a fourth coat. I could have (easily) gotten away with three coats. The other two nails show one coat of KBShimmer Wrappers Delight over ManGlaze Mayonnaise and Color Club Gingerbread Man. Photos show two coats of top coat. I absolutely adore this polish on its own.


Look at that awesome deep, rich blue polish loaded with glitter! This is three coats of KBShimmer Hex Appeal with two coats of top coat.


Do you like scented polishes? If you do, check out this polish.  This is KBShimmer Candy Cane Crush. It has a subtle peppermint and a strong vanilla scent! For me, the scent was more noticeable when the polish had dried. Shown in the photo is one coat over China Glaze Holly-Day, ManGlaze Mayonnaise, Sinful Colors Cross My Heart, and Essence Ultimate Pink (which I think would be perfect for Valentine's Day!) Photos show one coat of top coat. No digging for those XL hexes either! 


This is one coat of KBShimmer We Three Blings over various base colors: ManGlaze Mayonnaise, ManGlaze Matte is Murder, China Glaze First Mate, and China Glaze Holly-Day. Photos show one coat of top coat.


Please excuse this horrible photo! At this point, my cuticles had taken a beating swatching so many polishes. =)

This is three coats of a lovely soft blue polish called KBShimmer Snow Way.  This polish has a subtle shimmer to it that is not picked up in the photos. Photos show two coats of top coat. 

These polishes were sent for review.

My inspiration for this mani came from a similar design I saw my nail polish friend, Stephanie, do! For this Halloween nail design, I started with two coats of ManGlaze Mayonnaise. I stamped on the spider web with DRK-A stamping plate and A-England Elaine. I stamped on the spiders with Kleancolor black and Bundle Monster stamping plate BM-13. I finished the mani with one coat of matte top coat.

As its getting closer to Halloween, I wanted to do a mani that had that blood splatter look. I took the easy route and used a stamp! I loved the final look, but it sure does make me look red (lobster hands lol).


I started with two coats of ManGlaze Mayonnaise, which is my favorite white polish! This is a new addition to my collection, and I think this is the first polish where I really feel like I need a back up bottle. I topped the white base with one coat of Sonoma Nail Art Sonoma County Gazette. Photo was taken as the polish was drying.


I then added one coat of Essie Marshmallow to create a jelly sandwich. I stamped on the blood splatter design (that's what I think it looks like anyways) with Konad stamping polish in red and Konad stamping plate M70. Photo above was taken as the polish was drying. For the final look, I added one coat of matte top coat.

Ninja Polish Spooky Floam

What an awesome Halloween polish.... This is four thin coats of Ninja Polish Spooky Floam with two coats of top coat. I had good coverage with three coats, but I decided to add a thin fourth coat for photo purposes (in my experience, photos tend to show more gaps in coverage then what is seen in person). 

My absolute favorite thing about this polish is that it GLOWS IN THE DARK!!! Check out Shelia's amazing swatches and her glow in the dark photos of Spooky Floam!! Click here to see her post! I suck at taking glow in the dark photos. All my photos turned out completely black or my camera wouldn't snap a shot because it didn't know what to focus on. I am pretty sad about that because the glow effect of this polish is very impressive... You will not be disappointed by it!

The polish layered well and dried in a decent amount of time for four coats. I did wait a little while in between each coat. The polish does have stray pieces of yellow glitter. I wore this polish for a week and had good wear. I had spots begin to chip away after about 5 days. 

Ashley has Spooky Floam swatched over a white base and mattified! Its an awesome combo! Click here to check it out!

Witch Halloween Mani

Halloween is getting closer! 

For this mani, I started with three coats of Color Club Limelight. My photo is NOT color accurate of this green. In person, it is not a bright neon but more of a dark lime neon if that makes sense. The color is pretty awesome and perfect for Halloween themed manis. I tried to google image search to find an accurate color swatch, but I didn't see any that matched my bottle.

 The first design was stamped on with DRK-A and OPI Funky Dunkey. On top of that, I stamped on the witch with Kleancolor Black and Bundle Monster stamping plate BM-13. I added one coat of matte top coat to finish the mani. 

Glitter Daze A Charmed Halloween

Today I have a review on three polishes from Glitter Daze's Halloween Collection, A Charmed Halloween. This collection was inspired by the TV show, Charmed! I love that show. I have every season of it on DVD. =)  Overall, I really like these three polishes. Her bottling and labeling is very professional and cute! You can tell a lot of love went into these polishes. 


First up is three coats of Glitter Daze Book of Shadows with one coat of top coat. This polish was a real surprise. Its creamy brown base is full of gold shimmer and various shapes and sizes of gold and copper glitter--making it perfect for the Fall! The formula was perfection and applied easily. 


This is four thin coats of Glitter Daze Vanquishing Demons with one coat of top coat. My photo is slightly off in color accuracy. This polish has an amazing fuchsia pink jelly base loaded with a subtle gold shimmer and black shredded glitter. Three coats provided good coverage, but I added a fourth to cover a slight visible nail line. The formula was perfection and applied well. The four coats layered well with no issues.


Last is my favorite out of the three, and I hate that my photo of it is awful. This is four coats of Glitter Daze The Charmed One. This is a lovely light grey with blue, black, and white glitter. It is also loaded with some iridescent shreds and blue shimmer. So pretty! The four coats layered well as the formula was great.

My first Halloween mani of the season! This was my entry in the Bundle Monster Halloween contest. Voting is now open until the 19th of October. I am (of course) begging for your votes!!! =) As far as I know, you have to have a Facebook account to vote.


There are four pages of awesome entries. Vote for your favorites!


For this mani, I started with two coats of Orly Truly Tangerine. Next I did a gradient using Orly Truly Tangerine, A-England Excalibur, and this gradient tutorial by The Nailasaurus. Over the gradient (on each nail), I stamped a design. Both designs are from Bundle Monster stamping plate BM-301, and I used A-England Excalibur. I wanted the stamp design to fade into the gradient a little. The Halloween designs came from Bundle Monster stamping plate BM-305 and BM-13. All were stamped with Kleancolor black. The green eyes were added with a dotting tool and Color Club Lime Light. Photo shows no top coat.

Happy Saturday!

For this mani, I started with two coats of Sephora by OPI Caught With My Khakis Down. I stamped on the design (to me it looks like little paint brush swipes or feathers?) with Ulta Gold Rush and DRK-A stamping plate.

This is two (or three.. can't remember... I did this mani a long time ago) coats of Sinful Colors Cross My Heart and one coat of KBShimmer Bejeweled. I used two coats of top coat. 

My photo takes away from how awesome KBShimmer Bejeweled is. I really love this glitter top coat. It has a clear base and is loaded with copper, navy blue, purple, and turquoise holo glitter! The turquoise holo pops!

I think I've found my favorite white polish! I started with two coats of ManGlaze Mayonnaise. I stamped on the design with Konad stamping polish in light blue and Bundle Monster stamping plate BM-208. I added in the extra details with a dotting tool, Konad stamping polish in yellow, and A-England Elaine. I did not use a top coat.

I've been experimenting with the rotation of my photos lately. What do you think of these two flipped photos? Do you like or hate them? I really like the direction of the photo directly above and below. The very last photo is the same as the below photo just flipped in a different direction. Thoughts?

For this mani, I started with two coats of A-England Elaine (a rich dark purple that's perfect for the Fall), which was a wonderful gift from someone (Thank you!). I added one coat of Nfu-Oh  056. This polish is loaded with green flakies (that shift to a subtle blue depending on how the light hits it) and an awesome green shimmer. I stamped on the design with Kleancolor Black and You Mix Cosmetics stamping plate I (they don't sell these anymore). I topped it with one coat of matte top coat.
