Fall 2012 Previews: KBShimmer Part 2!

Yesterday I brought you the first part of my KBShimmer spam, and today I bring you two more Fall 2012 beauties!

KBShimmer has released 8 gorgeous polishes for fall (which you can see on her Facebook page), and I was lucky enough to preview four of them for you. First up, Quantum Leaf, a beautiful orangy-gold base with orange, copper, red and gold hex and microglitters. This was such an interesting polish – it really looks like ‘fall in a bottle’ to me! Quantum Leaf left me with the image of driving through a tree-lined road in the fall, with red, yellow and rust-coloured leaves dancing in the trail of my car… just magical.

Isn’t it beautiful? Here is another shot:

2 coats, shade

In the shade it looks more like a subdued mustard colour and the glitters really pop. I love Quantum Leaf, and will definitely be enjoying this beauty once the leaves start turning….

The second colour I have for you today is one of the “unexpected” variety – a stunning royal blue – with nary a glitter in sight. I Made a Bleu Bleu is a blue shimmer polish, and it is to-die-for!!!! Christy describes it on Facebook as “a Royal Blue base with subtle green shimmer and micro gold and purple sparkles,” but to be honest, I didn’t realize the shimmers were green or purple until I saw the photos. The polish dries to a gorgeous blue shade with this silvery-gold sheen, and it is the perfect blue! I often shy away from blues for work – I feel they can look immature or too bright – but this is a very elegant shade.

Look at that sheen, subtly dancing in the light!

And finally, a macro so you can see the beautiful shimmer up close (click on the pic to see it full size!):

I wore both polishes over a base coat and with top coat. Perhaps next time I will add a second coat of top coat or a coat of Gelous over Quantum Leaf to tame the glitter, but both polishes were shiny even on their own.

Again, these shades, along with the rest of KBShimmer’s Fall 2012 collection, will be available on September 1st directly from KBShimmer’s online shop. For us international fans, Harlow & Co is KBShimmer’s exclusive stockist!
