KBShimmer: Falloween Collection

KBShimmer's Falloween collection is packed full of a variety of polishes in seasonal shades and finishes. The collection was inspired by colorful fall leaves, kids in costumes, and all things pumpkin. Join me in celebrating the season, nail polish style, with these ten KBShimmer Falloween polishes.

Oops! A bottle of polish that shall remain a mystery for now, sneaked into my shot.


Hide And Eek
Purple, orange, black, green and yellow in a white crelly base

The name of this is cute for a crelly, the glitter is definitely playing hide and seek. Two coats shown with topcoat, no formula issues.

The Snuggle Is Real
a neutral tan cream

Truly neutral, this one doesn't seem to lean yellow or orange, but does a good job of staying right in the taupey color space. Two coats shown with topcoat, super creamy smooth formula.

Take It Or Leaf It
metallic flakes that shift from red, burnt orange, gold and hints of green at extreme angles in a clear base.

Look at those fall leaves!! Oh wait, that's polish flake. One coat painted over The Snuggle Is Real then topcoated, no formula issues.
I am also showing it topped with a purple jelly, and then another coat of Take It or Leaf it to show how it looks in a jelly sammich.

Smashed
a spiced pumpkin linear holographic.

Super vibrant holo flame, and its copper leaning rather than straight orange. Two coats shown with topcoat, no formula issues.

Here For The Boos
Halloween orange base loaded with silver holographic glitters.

Packed with sparkle, it is noticeable even in dim lighting. Two coats shown with topcoat for a smooth finish. I didn't notice much of a texture without topcoat.

Fool Moon
a multichrome that shifts from a light yellow to warmer goldenrod, sage, olive, and a dusty blue at extreme angles.

I noticed the blue hue in the bottle, but not on my nails while shooting. It is possible that my light source for photos just wasn't the right lighting for it. Two coats shown, the second coat was sponged on to eliminate brush strokes and then topped with topcoat. No issues with formula.

Absinthe Minded
a multichrome that shifts from lime to green and blue.

The blue in this though! Two coats shown, the second coat was sponged on to eliminate brush strokes and then topped with topcoat. No issues with formula.

Spell Check
a deep blue jelly base loaded with flakes that shift from green, blue, indigo, to aqua.

Christie names all the blues/greens, but I swear I saw violet in there too, a quite vibrant violet. Two coats shown for a squishy jelly look, no issues with formula.

Best Witches
A purple base filled with silver holographic glitters.

Another super sparkly mega flame finish. I wore two coats with topcoat for a smooth finish. I didn't notice much of a texture without topcoat.

Creep It Together
a magnetic polish that comes alive with a magnet. Hues of pink, golds and green are attracted to the magnet, allowing the black base to show off the flakes that shift from lime, to pink with hints of blue and gold.

Loving the complexities of this polish. I wore two coats, and then magnetized with the KBShimmer dual ended magnet in two different diagonal directions. It's the first time I have used this new magnet and I must say it is super strong and thick.

All polishes are shown with two coats and KBShimmer Clearly On Top topcoat. The formulas for all of them were good, no issues. I've enjoyed swatching and wearing the whole Falloween Collection, so it is really difficult to choose one single favorite from all ten of them. If I were to narrow it down, definitely The Snuggle Is Real (tan cream), Best Witches (mega flame purple), and Creep It Together (multichrome, flake, magnetic).

Do you have a favorite or five? The Falloween collection will be available at Polish Con on September 15 and then online on October 1st at kbshimmer.com
