Swatches & Review: (part of) KB Shimmer Fall Collection

Hey all! With fall season in the corner, you should be seeing more collection of fall shades coming out from your favourite brands. Might it be indie or mainstream. The collection consists of 9 new shades, plus a re-release halloween shade from KBShimmer's vault, 'Jack'. This collection has something for everyone, glitter, holo, and creams finishes. Katie from Harlow&Co. was kind enough to send me one of every finish from this collection for me to review. 

I have more photos and details after the jump below ;)
Stonewashed, Leaf of Faith, Rust No One.

All swatches here are using Rimmel base coat and KBShimmer Clearly on Top top coat. Photos were taken in a light box.

Leaf of Faith, described as "A deep cabernet-red jelly is the backdrop for glitters in red, orange, and gold. A Scattering holographic glitters gives this fall themed polish sparkle and shine"
Don't be alarmed when the first coat is looking a lot more pink than the swatches here. I used 2 thin coats and a heavier third coat to achieve this look. It was a breeze to apply and it was quite easy to get a good coverage of glitter.

Rust No One, described as "A deep, rusty, red-leaning pumpkin colour, with linear holographic rainbow."
A perfect shade for fall. On me, this shade looked a tad lighter than in the bottle. I used 3 thin coats, no issues at all. The holo flame is really nice, you definitely see it but not too in-your-face, if you know what I mean.

Stonewashed, described as "A dusty navy colour"
I literally whispered 'oh..my..gosh' when applying this one. Flawless formula! I'm one of the people who really enjoy a nice cream polish. I'm so used in using thin coats now, if I'm a bit heavy handed, this could easily be a one coater. I used 2 easy breezy coats.
