I have another handful of polishes from the KBShimmer Winter 2015 Collection to share with you tonight. These four polishes are all a crelly formula. A Crelly is a cross between an opaque creme polish and a sheer jelly polish. They are typically opaque in 2-3 coats but still have a squishy quality to them. KBShimmer is known for their amazing crelly with glitter polishes and these four are no exception. These are all from the winter collection but they aren't colors that scream Christmas. They would work well year round. Let's take a look at the squishies!
"Brr-tiful Dreamer" is a grayed out purple crelly packed with blue, aqua, purple and fuchsia glitters. The crelly base was much more opaque compared to How Corn-y. I was able to get it completely opaque in 2 coats. Because it is a little less squishy, the glitters are a little more noticable when it dries, so a good top coat is recommended. I used Clearly on Top here. I think this is a great color for winter and the transition into spring. It's almost grey....and I love me some grey polish.
"Smoke Signal" is a light grey crelly with an intersting mix of glitters in orange, aqua, charcoal, and red. The formula is much closer to the jelly side of the crelly scale so it is extra squishy. Applying this polish transported me back to when I first started getting into indie polishes. I have been in love with grey jellies with glitter ever since. I hardly ever wear them anymore but my love has been rekindled with Smoke Signal. I did two super smooth coats topped with Clearly on Top for this swatch.
"Owl Miss You" is a special twist on the traditional crelly with glitter polish. The cool toned nude crelly is packed with gold, copper and olive colored metallic flakies. The flakies are very small and make this polish so interesting. It looks different in every lighting. I really like these work appropriate polish colors that have a little twist to make them special. I used two coats of Owl Miss You topped with one coat of Clearly on Top. What do you think about crellies with ultrachrome flakies?
The KBShimmer Winter 2015 Collection is available now. They still have a great deal going on until the end of the month. With an order of $75 or more, you will get a cosmetic bag packed with all kinds of goodies. Don't forget to add Clearly on Top to your order. It is an amazing quick dry top coat and it's only $5.50! Such a steal.
