Shimmer Polish - Alessandra, Cristina, & Jacki


I realized recently that I never got around to posting swatches of the last few sets of Shimmer Polish that I have, because like I have said, I am the worst.
But never fear, they are coming. Just as soon as my badly broken nail grows out a little. In the meantime, I had three done already for your viewing pleasure today!


Here's what I love about Shimmer that I say in every review post:
- They're absolutely packed with glitter.
- But that does not make them gloopy or hard to apply.
- You can wear them alone layered over other colors.
- So many glitters. Complex formulas. Not your typical glitters.
- Great bottles and brushes and damn, what a cute label!
- HAVE I MENTIONED ALL THE GLITTER?

And I am generally very weary of indie polishes for quality reasons, but I stand behind these because even now, over 2 years after I got them, they are still perfect.

Let's get to the swatches!


Shimmer Polish - Alessandra (over Dance Legend - Moorland)
Alessandra is a Christmasy mix of red, green and silver glitters of all shapes and sizes. Shown is one coat of glitter over the base color! I'll be breaking this baby out for the holiday season for sure!


Shimmer Polish - Cristina (over Dance Legend - Cetraria)
Omgomg look at that teeeeeal. So pretty right? And the little mix of red glitter in there really makes it different and gives it depth. I believe I did 2 coats of this one to get as much glittery goodness on there as I could. I love all the tiny lil' squares. I could stare at it for hours.


Shimmer Polish - Jacki
This is one of the ones that doesn't need any undies. We've got a blackened jelly base packed with all sorts of glitter! It's almost difficult to tell what is in there because there's just so much. It's one of the more demure shades from Shimmer, if you can call a glitter demure. (You can in my world.)
