KBShimmer: Launch Party Collection

This March 15th, KBShimmer is launching its debut collection featuring the all new look. Matte black and holographic foil accented boxes, brushed silver logo imprinted on the bottle, and 5 free base set the bar high for KBShimmer’s 10th year in business. The 9 piece space themed collection features 8 multichrome and duochrome polishes and a galaxy holographic top coat.

Just A Phase – Just like the phases of the moon, this magnetic multichrome polish has many different looks. This polish shifts from shades of red, bright pink, gold, green, copper and peach.
For this design I held the magnet so that the short side lined up with the free edge to create a magnetic stripe up and down the middle of the nail.

Solar Flair – If you are looking for a fiery polish, this magnetic multichrome is it! Like the molten flares of the sun, this polish shifts from shades of gold and yellow, to hot oranges and reds.
For this design I held the magnet diagonally to create a magnetic stripe from the top corner to bottom corner of the nail. Totally digging this one, it's on fire!

Let’s Do Launch – When the space shuttle was launched going off to the moon, I can only image the families gathered around the television, in the pastel shades of the late 60’s, anxiously awaiting those first lunar steps. This magnetic multichrome echoes those soft peach and pinks, lime green, and grass green shades of that eras fashion.
For this design I held the magnet so that the long side lined up with the free edge to create a magnetic stripe across the edge of the nail, sort of like a french mani.

Thrust Issues – Burning bright in the sky, the golden flames of the rockets carrying astronauts into orbit are etched in the minds of those that have viewed space launches. This magnetic multichrome shade imitates those golden hues with a range of yellows, gold and oranges that dance like flames on nails.
For this design I held the magnet diagonally to create a magnetic stripe from the top corner to bottom corner of the nail.

You Rocket My World – Earth, with is rolling hills of green, vast blue oceans, and rich and vibrant jungles must be a wondrous site to see in space. This magnetic multichrome starts with vibrant shades of green and shifts through shades of lavender and silver.
For this design I held the magnet so that the long side lined up with the free edge to create a magnetic stripe up and down the middle of the nail.

Orbits and Pieces – Throughout space, orbiting around planets you will find billions of pieces of stars, planets, and even stuff from earth. Imagine finding technology from earth light years away, crazy! This magnetic duochrome polish is crazy as those pieces of space junk. A vibrant magenta pink hue flips to a bold blue toned purple, for a shade fit for infinity and beyond.

A Star Is Formed – What is a space collection without the stars? This holographic top coat is loaded with micro holo flakes that shimmer and sparkle in the light. While not quite a linear holo, theses micro flakes produce a beautiful holo flame that, when paired with any of the magnetic polishes, twinkle more than any galaxy in the sky. Shown is one coat over each of the shades in the magnetic collection. (same order as above and in the collage)

Each polish is worn in two coats with topcoat, and then finally topped with the holo topcoat A Star Is Formed for the last set of photos. The formula for these is amazingly smooth and easy to apply.

Well, I'm excited about this whole collection are you?
I'm totally loving the new packaging as well!
Also available with this launch is the KBShimmer magnet as pictured in the first collage.
The countdown has started, KBShimmer’s new look and the Launch Party Collection will blast off 03/15/18. What will you be picking up?
