Hey dolls! Hope you all had a great weekend! If you follow me on instagram, you already know I went out of town to see my stepdaughter’s recital. She did such an awesome job! After a three hour weather delay in Atlanta, the last thing I wanted to do when I got home on Sunday was my nails. Therefore, I’m postponing the Reader’s Choice look until next Monday.
Today I have photos for you of several Shimmer Polishes. I was graciously sent fifteen shades to review and you’ll see the first five today. Shimmer Polish is known in the indie world for their glitter bombs and they do not disappoint. The formula was exactly the same on each polish; the glitter is dense and easy to apply. I liked the way the layering glitters looked at one coat so I stopped there, but all of the polishes could be layered on its own to opacity.
Sarah is described as a tropical green and blue glitter. Sarah would be great over many different bases. I used one coat over Bondi Blue Skies.
Nichole is described as a red, silver, and blue glitter. This is the perfect patriotic glitter! I used one coat over Zoya Robyn.
The next set of photos feature glitters in colored jelly bases. The formula on these were thick, but still manageable and easy to use. I would recommend waiting a few minutes in between coats to prevent dragging. These dried to a dull finish, so top coat was used in the photos below. Three coats were used for each.
Karina is described as a burgundy wine and black glitter. I really like the addition of the black glitter.
Mary is described as a red, silver, and black glitter. The base color leans a little pink, which makes this one of my favorites from this set.
Vivian is described as a dusty rose, pink, and gray glitter. The base color is almost hard to describe; it’s like a grayish-brown taupe mix. Love the depth of this one!
Overall, I’m extremely pleased with my first Shimmer Polish experience. I’m so glad I got to review them, as I’ve had my eye on a few of them since their release. Over the next two weeks I’ll have photos of the rest of the polishes I received. Shimmer Polishes can be purchased through PAYPAL by sending an email with your paypal email/account and the colors you would like or through Etsy for $12 each.
