Polish lovers: Do you remember when multi chromes and holos – and even duochromes – were like rare unicorns? Polishes that we had to order from other countries; polishes we got once in a blue moon from an innovative brand…

Now, with the popularity of indies, we have them everywhere, thank goodness! All of these are among my favorite, favorite types of nail polish and so I’m excited to share with you these beautiful six polishes from KBShimmer‘s Multi Chromes collection!

Gonna warn you up front, though – this will be a long post with a lot of pictures, because I wanted to capture as many of the shifts as possible and I had sunlight!

Iridescent Exposure

Iridescent Exposure is a dusty teal base, according to the brand, that shifts to shades of cyan, blue, cool purples and rich magenta reds. I used two coats to achieve opacity. The pigmentation is awesome, I love the “coolness” of these colors and the strong shifts of cyan and blue.

Wine Not?

Wine Not? is described by the brand as a burgundy that with the slightest turn of hand can shift to shades of purple, gold and bronze. This polish is stunning! This was opaque for me in two coats. This will make an amazing fall pick!

Fiip Flop Hooray

Flip Flop Hooray is a rich emerald green that flashes teal, navy, grape purple, magenta and red. Another two coater for me, I was impressed with the formula on all of these. This is one of my favorites of the collection, and I can’t get the song “Hip Hop Hooray” out of my head now, lol!

It’s A Blazing

It’s A Blazing is actually described as shifting fall colors – which is perfect, because it reminds me of looking at all the foliage from the New Hope–Lambertville Bridge across the Delaware River in New Hope, Pa. Another two-coater for me, It’s A Blazing is a burgundy color, shifting to bronze, orange and golden shades. It’s stunning.

Puns and Roses

Puns and Roses is a FUN multi chrome. Oh. My. Goodness. This starts off as a rosy pink, but this baby shimmers golden, bronze, green; there’s one shot above where you can see a little bit of all the shifts on the nails – it’s SO beautiful! This is one of my favorites from the collection! She was opaque in two coats.

Chroma Chameleon is my favorite of the collection, alongside Puns and Roses. This polish starts pink and goes crazy. There’s green, coppery rose, more pink, gold, and rainbows and unicorns and love. But seriously, this polish is amazing on the nail and you WILL be distracted! This was opaque in two coats for me!

Ovearll, this collection is an instant favorite for me. I love when my polish shifts, so duochrome, multi chrome and holo are favorites of mine. Indies have taken these finishes to new levels and I’m so excited. I did some nail art with all six of these and I’ll show a tutorial on that soon!

These polishes will be sold first at PolishCon NYC on April 29! If you can’t make it, they will go live on KBShimmer.com, Amazon.com and select salons and retailers on May 5!

Are you planning to pick any up? I’d love to hear what might be your favorite of the bunch in the comments below!

    I am so impressed with these. I’m wearing a KBShimmer now that was a special on the indie polish board. I can’t get enough of these shades from them. I don’t even know what to pick because there are so many I’d love.

    • BeautyJudy

      They aren’t amazing at special polishes!

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    Wow, this is one gorgeous collection! I don’t own any duo or multi chromes so I would love to pick up at least one of them. They’re all stunning but i think Wine Not? is for me!

    • BeautyJudy

      Wine not? is a great pick!
