KBShimmer is excited to announce the addition of 22 new colors to their 3-Free glitter polish line.

These eleven polishes will release alongside additional polishes designed by KBShimmer to capture the joy, color and wonder that surrounds us all."

The blogger collection includes three glitter top coats, four sparkling jellies, two glitter creally polishes, one matte, and one shimmering cream. "We are launching eleven unique polishes that capture the feelings of winter and the winter holidays.
