KBShimmer Wrappers Delight and Candy Cane Crush

Christy of KBShimmer Bath and Body was so generous to give me the opportunity to try a few of her gorgeous creation. This was my first time trying the brand and I can officially say that I am hooked. Today I want to show you two glitter top coats from the Winter collection. The collection has a total of nine polishes and will be coming out on November 15th. These not only look like the holidays, but one of them even smells like it and the other helps raise money for a wonderful holiday charity. Keep reading to find out more...

Wrappers Delight is a limited edition polish, available only for one month (Nov. 15th to Dec. 15th). Five dollars from the sale of each $10 bottle of Wrappers Delight will be used to purchase toys for the Toys for Tots charity. Through the charity, the toys are given to deserving children who otherwise would get no presents this holiday. It doesn't get better than that...

Wrappers Delight (over Essence A Piece of Forever)
A mix of red, green and gold glitter of different sizes suspended in a clear base. I layered two thin coats over the gold Essence A Piece of Forever. The glitter spreads evenly without any problems. The formula is excellent for a chunky glitter top such a this. It looks really fantastic and with the colors it certainly is a wrappers delight. Bow and ribbons, oh my..

Closeup of the different glitter. I can see at least four different sizes of hex glitter as well as lots of small glitter. All mesh so perfectly together...

Wrappers Delight (over Essence Alice Had a Vision - Again)
This is the same Wrapper Delight as above except I layered it over a dark polish to bring out all the gold glitter. While it looks great over the gold, I'm crazy about it over the dark Essence Alice Has a Vision - Again. Just goes to show how versatile this top coat is and that it can look great over both light and dark base polishes. What color would you layer it over? I think it would rock over a great purple shade...

Again, a closeup of the gorgeous glitter mix....

Here is a mandatory bottle shot. It is a glitter bomb for sure...

Candy Cane Crush (over Essence Edward's Protection)
White and gold glitter of different sizes suspended in a clear base. The glitter size ranges from teeny tiny to large hex glitter and everything in between. I thought that black, white and red would make a perfect combination, so this is just one coat over Essence Edward's Protection. The formula on the polish is great, providing nice and even coverage.

It is scented with a delicious soft vanilla peppermint scent. When it dries on the nails, it smells like a candy cane. I was smelling my fingers for hours after swatching and was really tempted to lick them (although I resisted). I even stuck them in my boyfriends face and said "smell my finger." He gave me quite the look, but after I insisted, saying "No seriously, smell my finger. What does it smell like?" He obliged and said it smells like candy. Ding, ding, ding! Right on the nose. The scent does linger even after the polish is removed. It is not an overwhelming smell and personally I really like it...

A close up of the different glitter. Again, hex glitter in many different sizes, primarily in white with a bit of red tossed in...

Candy Cane Crush (over Zoya Logan)
This is once again, Candy Cane Crush, the same polish as above. This time I swatched it over Zoya Logan for a more holiday look and feel. The red and green combination is synonymous with the holidays and the combination of the two worked wonderfully together. I used one coat of the glitter plus a top coat...

How many sizes of hex glitter do you see?...
