Shimmer!


Hello, Loves! This post has been waiting to be published for you all since September! Maria from NailsMadeSimple.com had hosted a giveaway allowing someone to win a Shimmer polish by Cindy from Shimmer Polish. I was the lucky winner (thanks so much again, Maria!) and I chose to receive a custom polish. I had to choose 3 colors (blue, purple and black) and Cindy was able to make the polish based off my color shoices. She was also so kind and generous and sent me 3 more Shimmers to try out: Caroline, Jenny, and Tammy.  


Here are the swatches (3 coats all over black):

CAROLINE


TAMMY


JENNY


TRACI 


I am in love with Cindy's creations! If you haven't checked out her beautiful polishes, please do so here. She also has an etsy shop you can visit here.

The glitter applied really nicely. The actual polish wasn't goopy like some glitter polishes are. I love how the glitters glisten all together. "Shimmer" is the perfect name for these polishes :D

    1. Aw thanks, Erin! Glitter is hard to remove, but if you use a glue base, it makes it so much easier to peel off! Thanks for stopping by! I'll be sure to check out your blog :D
