Shimmer Polish Swatches and Review Part I


Happy Friday readers! 

I've got some eye candy from Shimmer Polish to show you today! This is my first experience with this brand so I was excited to see what they are all about. 

Just to note since it applies to all the polishes I am going to show you: I am happy to report that all of the polishes I have used from Shimmer are phenomenal in quality and formula. It's surprisingly thin (in a good way) and doesn't get all chunky and thick on the brush. No issues at all!

Alright, so I have 5 swatches to show you today and tomorrow I will have 5 more. That way you aren't on glitter overload because these are a lot to take in... in a good way! Also, these can vary from a one coat topcoat to a full coverage glitter depending on how many coats you do and the look you are going for. Each polish from Shimmer is so complex and really tells a story. You can tell that these are not just sloppily mixed together...a lot of thought has to go into these awesome glitter combos!

So first up is Nichole. I layered one ridiculously easy coat over Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White Out. This is a mixture of red, blue and silver glitter in various sizes.  


This is Vicki, a rosy pink with what looks to be a bit of silver mixed in. I put one coat over China Glaze Aquadelic. Don't you love how much coverage one coat gets you?!


This is Trisha layered over Peachy Keen from China Glaze. I did one coat on all but my ring finger which is two. This polish is really pretty for fall.


Here is Kim over Zoya Natty. One coat and amazing coverage! This is a mixture of mostly blue glitters with some purple in there as well.


And my final Shimmer for today is Tracy. I really love this one! I layered this over Sinful Colors Black on Black. I did 2 coats on my ring finger. This really makes the gold pop but check out all those tiny flecks of color as well! Gorgeous.


Shimmer Polish really is one of a kind in terms of the kinds of glitter polishes offered. My favorite thing about Shimmer is the formula though. I wish ALL glitters were this easy to work with and have such awesome coverage!


You can shop Shimmer's Etsy shop *here* and on their blog *here*.

How many of you own some Shimmer? I would love to hear your thoughts!

Stay tuned for Part II of Shimmer coming up soon. :)



*These polishes were sent to me for review in exchange for my honest opinions.
