Shimmer Polish - Cindy, Elsa, & Carmen

Hey guys! I finally got my butt in gear and finished swatching all the magnificent glitterbombs from Shimmer Polish! Here come three beauties.

As I say every time, Shimmer Polishes are very complex and full of so much fun glitter.
The formulas are wonderful, glitter-packed without being gloopy, and they can be worn layered or built up on their own.

Shimmer Polish - Cindy
This is the namesake polish for the creator of Shimmer! If I made polishes I would totally name one after myself too. Haha! This is three coats of Cindy on its own, no base color. You could probably get away with 2 coats if you weren't photographing the color - I wanted to make sure the red jelly was even enough for the photos. I'm still wearing this right now! Very glamorous. There's some holo glitter in there too for that extra punch.

Yummmmmmm OMG I love this one. I layered it over a hot pink which I think was a bit of a strange choice, but it really works! The base is slightly tinted pinkish, and there are all sorts of colors and shapes of glitter in there. Dayummmmm. I think I did two coats of glitter here because I wanted to mostly cover the pink but still have it peeking out. Gorgeous!

Shimmer Polish - Carmen (over China Glaze - Sun of a Peach)
Here's one of the golden polishes! Lots of sizes of golden glitter including very teeny microglitter for a very sparkly look. Into it! This is one coat.

Hooray for glitter!
