KBShimmer Blogger Collection 2013 Review/Swatches & GIVEAWAY!!

You guys have no idea how excited I am to be sharing these polishes with you right now! KBShimmer hand-picked eleven nail bloggers and gave us the opportunity to create a unique nail polish for part of their winter collection. I think you all know how much I love KBShimmer, but let me just reiterate for you if you don't... four words: best indie brand ever. So should we get to the polish or what??

Christmas Now comes from Crystal at Crystal's Crazy Combos and is literally Christmas in a bottle. This green jelly polish contains gold stars and multi-colored hex and round glitter. This is three coats.

Green Hex and Glam is from Kayla at Nails by Kayla Shavonne and is a deep forest green jelly polish with holographic glitter. This is three coats.

I'd Rather Be With Blue was thought up by Lisa at Cosmetic Sanctuary. This light blue matte polish has iridescent shimmer in it that's meant to mimic glistening snow. This is two easy, perfect coats.

Snow Much Fun comes from Victoria at The Manicurator and (I know you guys are going to be excited about this...) it has snowflake glitter!! There are also holographic and white glitters mixed in this light blue base. This is three coats. The snowflakes were surprisingly easy to get out of the bottle too!

Merry Pinkmas is from Cristina at Let Them Have Polish (my first nail blog crush!). This light pink base has a mix of red, green, and neon glitter in it. This is three coats.

Plum Tuckered Out was thought up by Sheila at Pointless Café and is a stunning shade of plum with blue shimmer. This is three coats.

Toast-ess With the Mostest comes from Valesha at Peachy Polish and is a champagne-inspired glitter topper consisting of gold, pink, and silver hex and round glitters in a clear base. This is one coat over Plum Tuckered Out. Absolutely stunning!

I Only Have Ice For You is the brainchild of Sarah at Chalkboard Nails. This beautiful glitter topper is made up of shimmery white flakes and holo glitter. This polish will look great over any color, but I layered one coat here over China Glaze Red Satin. This is so delicate and would look fabulous over any of the shades from Zoya's Feel collection of winter neutrals.

Strung Out is from Jackie at Candy Coated Tips and is a black jelly polish with silver, gold, red, green, and blue round glitter. If you hadn't guessed it, this one was inspired by a string of lights! This is two coats over one coat of plain black polish. 

Sand In My Stocking was thought up by Jen at The PolishAholic and is a fabulous departure from the typical holiday glitter! This gold polish has orange, aqua, and holographic star glitter. This is one coat over I'd Rather Be With Blue.

And finally, Will Yule Marry Me? is my shade! I went in-depth with my inspiration behind this beauty in a separate blog post, but the down and dirty is that it was inspired by my Christmas Eve engagement last year! The navy blue base represents the "eve" and the round and holographic glitters represent my super sparkly engagement ring! This is two coats.

Every single one of these polishes has a perfect formula and I had no issues to report with any of them. Each of these photos shows the polishes with one coat of KBShimmer's top coat, Clearly on Top (except I'd Rather Be With Blue).  This collection is available for purchase today at!

Now for the best part! How would you like to win this entire collection? I have one full set to give away, plus one bottle of Will Yule Marry Me? as well! There will be two winners total.
