KBShimmer Winter 2013 Collection : Part 2

You can see part one of this review here.

Today, I have the second part of my KBShimmer Winter 2013 Collection review. I'm going to show you three glitter toppers - one was the 2013 charity polish and two are from the blogger collection.

Base and top coats used: essie First Base and Gelous

First up is Kringle All the Way, which was the 2013 charity polish. Christy used $4.00 from the sale of each bottle to purchase toys for Toys for Tots and this year $2968.00 was raised - that was 742 bottles sold!! Kringle All the Way consists of green, red, and silver circle glitter of different sizes in a clear base. The glitter reminds me of ornaments and is the perfect Christmas glitter. Shown here is two dabbed coats over two coats of Orly Liquid Vinyl. The large circles did sink but it was easy enough to fish them out. As with any glitter packed polish, the clear base of this is on the thick side in order to suspend all of the glitter.

Next up is Toast-ess with the Mostess, which was a collaboration with Valesha from Peachy Polish. The pink, silver and gold glitter is supposed to be reminiscent of champagne and I LOVE the combination. This was perfect for the holiday season but also great for any time of year. A great way to be flashy and classy. (HA!) Shown here are two dabbed coats over two coats of OPI My Vampire is Buff. Again, the large circles were sinkers but, as you can see, easy enough to fish out. As with Kringle All the Way, the clear base of this is on the thick side so dabbing is the easiest way to work with the polish..

Finally, we have I Only Have Ice For You, which was a collaboration with Sarah from Chalkboard Nails. This topper is jam-packed with tiny holographic glitters and white flakes and Sarah said "it reminds [her] of a snowglobe" which I think is a great descriptor. It also reminds me of the days when the trees are covered in hoarfrost and the whole world sparkles. Show here is one easy coat over two coats of KBShimmer Plum Tuckered Out.

That finishes off this two part review. Which one was your favourite?

  1. As much as I don't love typical Christmas colors, Kringle All The Way is really fun! I definitely see Christmas ornaments there. But, I Only Have Ice For You is perfection. It reminds me so much of the day after a big snowfall when everything seems to sparkle in the sun!

    1. They are all gorgeous but yes, I Only Have Ice For You is pure sparkle in a bottle and because it has tiny glitter it was the easiest to work with. :)
