Shimmer, Shimmer Everywhere: Julie and Sarah

 *Press Sample*

Hey everybody!  How is everyone on this Friday?  I've got some dreadfully lovely Shimmer Polishes to show you today...so how about let's take a look? :)


Behold...Julie!  And my pseudo-attempt at nail art. :D  Julie is a multicolored glitter in a clear base.  The glitter is small to micro, which I love. <3  Shimmer Polish describes Julie as a "rainbow mix."


Even though I am NOT a nail artiste, I do love how this turned out.  I used Essie Ballet Slippers as my base color and then sponged Julie on the tips.  It looks like I've been playing in magical Italian salad dressing!  Oh, stop complaining...I haven't used a food analogy in ever so long!! :P  Just look at it...14 different herbs and spices...all served up by the Salad Fairy! :D


Next we have Sarah, or, the Peacock Who Turned Herself Into a Polish.  What?  You don't remember your mother reading you that classic??  Quite simply, Sarah is a peacock in a bottle...a flawless, fabulous, fine-feathered fowl in one perfect sparkletini!!


My goodness.  Do you see what I mean?  Of course you do.  My readers are super intelligent! :D  I love, love, LOVE this polish.  I used 3 coats of Sarah for opacity.  In real life, not only is the color beautiful, but the glitters, especially the micros, absolutely twinkle.  Ahhhhhh...

As with all the Shimmers I've experienced, neither Julie nor Sarah feel like you're wearing glitter polish.  A couple of coats of top coat, and there's nothing but a marked absence of lumps and bumps. :)  Shimmer Polish can be purchases on Etsy.

Stay tuned in the very near future for more shimmery Shimmer goodness. <3  Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely weekend!

  2. Hahahaahahaaa! "14 different herbs & spices all served up by the salad fairy!" I love eeeeeet! Both of these are waaaay too gorgeous like any other Shimmer polish I've came across and they look especially lovely on you! Too bad you can't eat Julie, I love Italian dressing like no other, but that sounds like an episode of My Strange Addiction :-P

    2. Ugh no I have not seen that one but now that you mention it I think I heard something about that!!! I drew the line with that show back when that pregnant woman would eat dirty diapers. *GAGS*

  3. DON'T EAT THE NAIL POLISH, MELISSA!!! STEP AWAY FROM THE GLITTER!!! Okay but seriously, these are fab for the artistically challenged among us/that happen to be us, lool. I like how your gradient extends the length of your gorgeous talons, and I adoooore colorful glitters over pale jellies <3<3<3 Sarah reminds me of a coarser Zoya Crystal (which I still need to wear... I have it in my head as a summer thing for some reason). It's very cool looking and I can only imagine how gorgie it is in person!

    1. :D What's that? Sorry, I was picking the glitter out of my teeth...

      Yeah, my extended gradient. I haven't any idea if that was correct, or incorrect, but there it is. :P Julie for some reason looks kind of pinkish in the bottle, so I immediately thought of pairing it with pale pink. Sarah does look a bit like Crystal (which, oddly enough, I associate with winter), but then there's the fantastic purple peeking through as well. <3

  4. I am happy to see that video stuck to you enough to not encourage nail polish consumption... wait a minute... LOL <3 Ballet Slippers looks perfect with Julie, and you did a rockin' job with that gradient! (Did I just say rockin' again?) I don't know which is my favorite, because that Peacock-Gone-Princess looks awesome too!!

  5. Oh you do tempt me badly here! Both of them are plain awesome! I think I even own the first one... And your gradient is just perfect - like Liesl, I really like how it tinkles to the base of the nail!!
