Launch Party Collection

This March 15th, KBShimmer is launching its debut collection featuring the all new look.  Matte black and holographic foil accented boxes, brushed silver logo imprinted on the bottle, and 5 free base set the bar high for KBShimmer’s 10th year in business.  The 9 piece space themed collection features 8 multichrome and duochrome polishes and a galaxy holographic top coat.  Retailing for $10 each, this out of this world collection launches Thursday March 15th at and select retailers.

 Just A Phase – Just like the phases of the moon, this magnetic multichrome polish has many different looks.  This polish shifts from shades of red, bright pink, gold, green, copper and peach.

Solar Flair – If you are looking for a fiery polish, this magnetic multichrome is it!  Like the molten flares of the sun, this polish shifts from shades of gold and yellow, to hot oranges and reds.

Let’s Do Launch – When the space shuttle was launched going off to the moon, I can only image the  families gathered around the television, in the pastel shades of the late 60’s, anxiously awaiting those first lunar steps.  This magnetic multichrome echoes those soft peach and pinks, lime green, and grass green shades of that eras fashion.

Thrust Issues – Burning bright in the sky, the golden flames of the rockets carrying astronauts into orbit are etched in the minds of those that have viewed space launches.  This magnetic multichrome shade imitates those golden hues with a range of yellows, gold and oranges that dance like flames on nails.

You Rocket My World – Earth, with is rolling hills of green, vast blue oceans, and rich and vibrant jungles must be a wondrous site to see in space.  This magnetic multichrome starts with vibrant shades of green and shifts through shades of lavender and silver.

No Comet – Like a comet shooting through the sky, this magnetic multichrome shade mimics the colors of those nightly wonders.  This magnetic duochrome shows off a vibrant blue, flipping to a majestic purple.  Top with A Star If Formed for galaxy like nails.


Spaced Out – This magnetic multichrome is full of fantastic flipping pigment.  Purple and pink hues give way to shades of green blues and in photos and almost silver color appears.  This is one shade you won’t want to take off!

Orbits and Pieces – Throughout space, orbiting around planets you will find billions of pieces of stars, planets, and even stuff from earth.  Imagine finding technology from earth light years away, crazy!  This magnetic duochrome polish is crazy as those pieces of space junk.  A vibrant magenta pink hue flips to a bold blue toned purple, for a shade fit for infinity and beyond.


A Star Is Formed – What is a space collection without the stars?  This holographic top coat is loaded with micro holo flakes that shimmer and sparkle in the light.  While not quite a linear holo, theses micro flakes produce a beautiful holo flame that paired with any of our magnetic polishes twinkle more than any galaxy in the sky.

KBShimmer Magnet – A strong magnet with the “cat’s eye” or linear pattern.  Retails for $3.00

The countdown has started, KBShimmer’s new look and the Launch Party Collection will blast off 03/15/18. Polishes will retail for $10; other product pricing will vary. For a limited time, get the whole collection, magnet, and multichrome bag for $90.00.

Hella Holo Customs + KBShimmer = <3 <3 <3

KBShimmer is very excited to announce that for the month of February, KBShimmer is one of 2 featured makers for the Facebook Group Hella Holo Customs.  Hella Holo Customs (HHC) was created two years ago for fans of holographic polishes of all types.  Each month, group members submit inspiration photos for makers, then vote on those photos.  Makers then work in collaboration with the group admins to create 3 stunning holographic polishes!  Members using sneak peeks they get along the way, suggest names for each polish.

We at KBShimmer were so inspired that we created 4 polishes for this months group customs.  These are on sale now through 02/28/2017.


These polishes are then put up for sale for a limited time, exclusively for group members.  Why, if not available publicly am I telling you about these polishes?  Because you can join ANYTIME!!  And the best part, we are working with the admin of this group and they are going to handle international shipping for us, so even if you live outside the US you can purchase these directly from us!


None Of Your Bismuth

Based on the multichrome crystal photo that captures a metallic rainbow of colors, this truly unique multichrome was blended with several different pigments to shift from a teal green, to aqua blue, to fuchsia pink and purple.  This spectrum of color is accented by a strong linear holo. This polish is very unique, and it looks different in varying forms of light.  If soft, indirect light, you see more of the greens and purples, while brighter light brings out the blues and holo.  In strong sunlight, the holo really shines and the polish looks teal and green, and sometimes it appears almost like a dark navy.  It really is amazing how many personalities this polish has.  2-3 coats recommended

Deep Hue Sea

Inspired by the shadows and fuchsia shades of sunset, Deep Hue Sea is a charcoal holo with strong violet pink shimmer, appearing almost as deep bruised purple in certain lights.  In low lighting, it appears black, with pink and violet shimmer popping out, while in bright light, it looks more dark purple and pink with a strong linear holo.  2 Coats recommended

Tall Pink Of Water

When the sun sets, and the sky is just right, beautiful flashes of orange, fuchsia, magenta and dark purple fill the sky.  This holo polish captures the bright fuchsia and magenta tones of the suns setting rays.  This pink polish is packed with linear holo pigment for one of our strongest holos yet.  2 coats recommended
