Shimmer Polish Review

I have another indie review for you today!! These are gorgeous Shimmer polishes. They are all glitter bombs. Most of the swatches she has on her site are layered over something, I wanted to showcase what they look like alone. These are all 3 coats, and I found the formula an ease to work with.

First up, we have Alessandra...

Shimmer, Alessandra, Red, Coral, Green, Teal, Aqua, Indie, Glitter

Alessandra is described as a coral red mix. It has all sorts of different reds and corals along with hints of green/aqua. You can really see the sparkle of the green in the lower picture.

Next up is Jasmine...

Shimmer, Jasmine, Aqua, Aquamarine, Gold, Red, Indie, Glitter

Shimmer, Jasmine, Aqua, Aquamarine, Gold, Red, Indie, Glitter

Jasmine is my favorite of the 5 she sent me. Im guessing it was inspired by Aladdin's Jasmine, because that is all I could think while I was wearing it! Haha!! This is mostly aquamarine glitter, with gold and a little surprise of red here and there. It's absolutely stunning.

Now it's on to my name... Kelly :)

Shimmer, Kelly, Green, Gold, Indie, Glitter

Kelly is very St Paddy's day... which is fitting since Kelly is an Irish name. It is packed with green microglitter and has lots of slightly larger gold glitters... some of which are holographic. This is my second favorite of the collection. I know, I'm just as surprised as you that the green polish didn't take top billing!

Now we have Mary...

Shimmer, Mary, Red, Silver, Black, Indie, Glitter

Shimmer, Mary, Red, Silver, Black, Indie, Glitter

Mary is red, silver and black glitter. Out of all of them, I got the least coverage out of her, but I still really like the over-all effect of no undies. Personally, if I can wear a polish without having to put another under it, I prefer to.

And last, but certainly not least, is Nichole...

Shimmer, Nichole, Red, Silver, Blue, Indie, Glitter

Shimmer, Nichole, Red, Silver, Blue, Indie, Glitter

Nichole makes me feel like I should wear her on Memorial Day weekend or Fourth of July. She is very patriotic; the only difference being its red, silver and blue as appose to red, white and blue. There is some holographic silver in here as well.

Overall, I really enjoyed these polishes. I didnt have to fish for glitter like so many glitter bombs. It was an easy dunk and paint approach.

You can buy Shimmer polishes here. They are $12. You can also follow her on Facebook here and her blog here to see all the new shades as they are unveiled.
