KBShimmer Up & Autumn Collection Review {Available at Harlow & Co.}

Provided for review

It's no secret that I love fall. It's my favorite season because of the cooler temperatures, colourful leaves and comforting scents. With that said, it makes sense that I look forward to what nail polish brands have to offer for my favorite season. The KBShimmer Up & Autumn Collection (which is available now from Canadian and International stockist Harlow & Co.) grabbed my attention the moment I saw the diverse array of finishes and colours. There truly is something for everyone in this 12-piece collection. After seeing my swatches, I think you'll agree.

Girly Bits October 2019 CoTM Raisin' Hell and Pumpkin Sumthin' Swatches

Provided for review

We are well into October now and I am living for the gorgeous foliage in Toronto right now. So far, it's a great year for vibrant colours. Speaking of vibrant colours, Girly Bits has created two perfectly autumnal polishes for the October 2019 CoTM duo. The shift in both of these is unreal so I tried my best to capture all the angles. These are two polishes you really need to see in person to appreciate fully because they really are magical.

BLUSH Lacquers After Hours Shimmers Collection Swatches and Review

Provided for review

You've seen the Dusk Cremes and now it's time for the BLUSH Lacquers After Hours Shimmers collection. The After Hours Shimmers Collection is inspired by everyone's favorite time of day. The work day has ended and we've not gone to bed yet. It feels like anything can happen after hours. This twinkling, shimmering six piece nail polish set utilizes the same base colors as our Dusk Cremes collection, but adds touch of glamour with a shifting pink, bronze, gold, green shimmer and lots of holographic sparkle. Brighten up your next nightlife escapade with these eye-catching, glowing nail polishes! Polishes are opaque in 2 coats when worn alone (in my personal experience) with a perfectly fluid formula and breezy application. You can also layer these over the BLUSH Lacquers Dusk Cremes (swatches are here).

BLUSH Lacquers Dusk Cremes Collection Swatches and Review

Provided for review

I am so happy to be sharing new cremes from BLUSH Lacquers. The Dusk Cremes collection is inspired by the romance of a deep setting sun across a wispy autumnal meadow. Feel the cool breeze and watch the sky change from different hues of violet, plum and mauve until the night sky takes over and the evening stars appear. This six piece nail polish set pairs perfectly with your favorite flannel shirt for a comfortable fall look or can be dressed up by combining them with the BLUSH Lacquers After Hours Shimmers collection (swatches are here) for an added touch of sparkle and glam. Polishes are opaque in 2-3 coats when worn alone. You know I love this brand's cremes because of the wonderful formula and flat, round brush. It makes application a breeze and these cremes have a fantastically glossy finish on their own (but, of course, I recommend top coat). The first three polishes only needed two coats but I used three thin coats for the darkest three cremes.
