Hey there everyone! Today I have for you swatches of my very first and newly acquired Shimmer Polishes to show you. Shimmer Polish is an indie brand made in California, and consists of glitter, glitter, and more glitter! Each one I have to show you is densely packed with glitter which means they not only can be layered on top of other polishes, but can be worn alone. I chose to just show you the glitter on it's own.
Formula and Application: The glitter was densely packed and applied evenly. There was no fishing for glitters issues. The glitters were all high quality with no curling on the larger glitters. They all laid flat on the nail easily, with the exception of Tammy which had a slightly different texture with the bar glitters. The suspension base is a good, thin consistency.
Bottle and Brush: The bottle cap was the only thing I had issues with. Something about the shorter handle made it difficult for me and my big man hands to open. If you have regular sized hands it is not likely to be a problem. The brush is thin, pliable, cut evenly and distributed the glitters well.
I've had my eye on Shimmer Polish for some time and was so excited to finally try some. I know I'll be using these again in the future. Let's take a look at the swatches:
Nichole has a patriotic feel with silver holographic, red, and blue glitters in clear base. It looks like Old Glory on steroids. This is three coats, plus topcoat.
Jennifer is a soft and pretty combination of colors that was the hardest for me to capture. It is made up of lilac, aqua, periwinkle, copper, gold, and black glitters in a clear base. This is three coats, plus topcoat.
I also love the name of this polish because I had a roommate named Tammy that was a really sweet friend. She was great at giving me rides everywhere back before I had a car. :)
Each bottle retails for $12, and can be purchased at the Shimmer Polish shop.
What do you think? I don't think I've ever used the word "glitter" so much at one time! Do you have a favorite? Any other Shimmer shades you love that I should check out?
