Shimmer Polish Spam!

About a week ago I purchased three polishes from Shimmer Polish: Stephanie, Caroline, and Gerry.

I liked that these mainly consisted of smaller glitters. A lot of indies seem to mostly be creating polishes with larger and multi-shaped glitters and while I love those, it's always nice to see someone doing something a bit different.
The packaging is really cute! They all have a heart on the label that corresponds to the color of the polish.
All three of the ones I own (and I believe her other polishes are this way as well) are glitters in a clear base so you could layer them over any polish.

These are very dense, I think they could be opaque in 2-3 coats but I decided to layer them over a base color because I prefer that look. They're all shown with 1 coat over a base color.

I really liked this one! The primary glitter color is blue.

Application was wonderful. Zoya knows how to make a great creme polish, that's for sure. 2 coats.

Shimmer Polish Caroline over Model's Own Magenta Pearl.
My camera had a hard time taking pictures of this one. I think it was the base color that was causing problems with my camera. 
The primary glitter color is a dark magenta.

Absolutely gorgeous! This polish really glows once it's on your nails. 2 coats.

Shimmer Polish Gerry over Illamasqua Jo'Mina.
This one was my favorite out of the three that I ordered! The primary glitter color is purple but there also seems to be a fair amount of blue glitters in there as well.

Every time I wear this polish I'm always amazed at how amazing the formula is. It practically applies itself and the color is one of my favorite shades of purple. 2 coats.

The creator of Shimmer Polish is also starting to create custom polishes! I'm already planning my next order!

    1. I love Gerry! I love the darker purple glitters.

  3. Definitely love Stephanie and Gerry. You did a great job pairing the polishes up!

    1. Thanks! I tried to find colors that were similar so that they would bring out the colors of the glitters better but next time I think I'm going to go with contrasting colors and see how that looks.

  4. Love them all, your application on those cremes is flawless :)

    1. Thank you! It helps that the formula on both of those creme polishes are fantastic.
