Shimmer Swatch and Review Part II: Jennifer and Nichole

Provided For Review

Hi all!! I hope you had a great weekend! Hubby enjoyed a day of doing nothing yesterday since it was Father's Day. I cleaned, did laundry, made a pot roast in the slow cooker. If you're a mom, then you know your work is never done! :P

I have a couple more lovelies to show you from Shimmer, but first I want to share my excitement with you!! *jumps up and down* I spent a better part of Saturday night researching the best/right light bulbs to use for a  light box. Once I found what I needed, I went to the store yesterday morning and bought a 4 pack of CFL 23W Daylight light bulbs. I put them in my lamps, did a quick swatch, took some photos, and then I was giddy with joy!! Finally! No more annoying, ugly yellow glare! I'm so super duper excited. So then I swatched some more pretty polish! :D

Both polishes are layered over a base color with Seche Vite top coat. Glitter applied evenly with both Jennifer and Nichole.. no fishing or positioning of glitters here! :)

Jennifer has so much going on, I don't think I can name every color in the bottle!  There are light blue, teal, gold, and holo glitters, and I know I'm missing some! I layered one coat over 2 coats of Sinful Colors Sail La Vie (swatch coming soon!)

And because I can, matte-fied with Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love. Isn't this beautiful! It's so feminine and delicate <3 It reminds me of Cinderella :D

Nichole is full of silver, red, and blue glitters, perfect for Memorial Day and the 4th of July! I love jelly sandwiches, so I wanted to see how Nichole would look squished between a couple layers of polish :D I used 3 coats of L'Oreal Miss Pixied then 1 layer of Nichole.

And with a layer of Miss Pixie to make it all squishy! I love this combination! The blue was sheer enough to let Nichole shine her way through <3

Shimmer Polish can be purchased on Etsy for $12 for a 0.5 fl oz bottle. Be sure to like on Facebook and follow Cindy on her blog!
