Shimmer Polish: Some Fun Swatches & Review

Polishes provided for review.

I have a very glittery post for you today: a review of FIVE different polishes sent to me by Cindy over at Shimmer Polish!

Here is a little blurb from her Esty Shop:

"My polishes are named after my wonderful friends and family. Each and every name has an important significance to me. Each shade of Shimmer is inspired by my friends; from favorite colors, things that remind me of that person, and even personal requests from these great ladies. Each and every one of my Shimmers have shaped and influenced me to become who I am today; this my way of thanking them for being in my life." How sweet!



First up we have Jasmine. I posted a little sneak peak of this one earlier in the week.  This one is the first one I swatched, and it's my favorite by far! Jasmine is jam-packed full of aquamarine, light blue, and green glitter with some small red and larger gold hexes sprinkled in. Here it is on my accent nail (I used NYC Empire State Blue as a base, and on my other nails):




Next up is Crystal, a copper brown glitter in a clear base. I think this glitter would also go well with a shiny gold polish, or even dark, coffee brown. Here, I layered it over three coats of Pineapple Express by Twee & Honey.




Next, we have Josephine, a pink and orange glitter polish with a hint of blue, and larger blue hexes (also in a clear base).  It is so girly and fun! Here I have it layered over one coat of NYC Preppy Pink:




Next we're going patriotic! Nichole is described as a red, silver, and blue melange polish.  I had some fun with this one :-) I layered Nichole over essie forever yummy on my accent finger. I think it looks so cute with sparkly tips!




Last, but most certainly not least, I bring you Katie, which is a clear base and gray, green, and pink micro glitters. This polish is absolutely PERFECT for springtime :-) Here I have it over one coat of Zoya Sweet. (I'm sporting NYC Tudor City Teal on my pointer finger... i love pink and green together!)




These are just 5 of a whole bunch of fabulous glitter polishes you will find when you visit Shimmer Polish's Etsy Shop.  Make sure you stop by there and take a look around, and then head over to her facebook page and be sure to "like" it to stay up to date on all news and new releases!
