KBShimmer Up & Autumn Collection Fall 2019

Hello! Is anyone still there? I know I've been woefully absent from my blog and it may be that way for some time. I have still been doing a fair amount of swatching but instead of posting them here I've been focusing more on my Instagram. Posting one photo at a time is more the pace that I need at the present. So I have shared a few of this collection's polishes already but here are all twelve of them!

Clothes Minded is a creamy pale tan base sets off small and extra small glitters in blue, purple, copper and brown. Be care to not overwork application to avoid patchiness. Shown is three coats plus top coat.

Free Fallin’ is a deep auburn jelly sets with iridescent flakes that shift from hues of red to orange to gold. The application was nice and built up easily. Shown is two coats plus top coat.

Up & Autumn is a warm dusty cedar color cream. Nice and easy application. Shown is two coats plus top coat.

Spice Things Up is a warm golden hue that shifts orange to coppery red. You can apply this over black for more intense color. This is opaque in two coats but I did three for more saturation.

Raking It In is a brightly-colored iridescent flake topper in a clear base, shifting from hues of red, orange, gold, green, and at extreme angles, aqua. Shown is one coat over Up & Autumn.

Having A Gourd Time is a deep olive green with a strong shimmer that shifts between red, orange, gold and green. Applies patchy on first coat but builds up opacity on the second. Shown is two coats plus top coat.

Trend Sweater is a fuchsia multichrome that shifts to rose and lavender and golden coppery pink, with micro holo flakes. Shown is two coats plus top coat.

Vested Interest is a multichrome shade that shifts between shades of green, teal and blue, with holo glow flakesShown is two coats plus top coat.

If You've Got It, Haunt It is a deepened navy polish that subtly shifts to shades of purple and black, with a linear holo accent. Applied patchy on first coat but built to opacity on second. Shown is two coats plus top coat.

Apple-y Ever After is a tri-thermal polish that goes from rich brown to red-orange to Granny-Smith-apple-green, with micro holo glitters. Because thermal formulas often change color during application I had a hard time telling if it was opaque enough. As you can see from my swatches, it wasn't. Instead of two coats I needed three.




Twist & Stout is a deepen brown, almost black linear holo. Applied patchy on first coat, built to opacity on second. Shown is two coats plus top coat.

All Fired Up is a black to pale gray thermal polish with color-shifting metallic flakes that shift red/orange/yellow with magical a red to green shifting shimmer. Shown is two coats plus top coat.




The Up & Autumn collection is available now at KBShimmer.com and select retailers.
