I recently won one of Shimmer Polish’s amazing Facebook contests, and the lovely Cindy asked me what my favourite colour was. When I told her it was blue but not necessarily blue polish, she sent me Jennifer, a very pale blue glitter polish.
I was shocked when I saw Jennifer in person – it’s so much more than blue!!! It is a clear base, packed full of multi-colour glitters in different sizes that combine to create a pretty and periwinkle blue shade… it’s actually made up of silver, blue, pink, turquoise and some black glitters. It is stunning!
My base colour was from the newest Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kollection: Deck the Dolls. I love this polish but did not manage to get a perfect photo, so for that, I apologize! You can still see how gorgeous it is though:
Deck the Dolls is a deep metallic teal – a perfectly muted teal, perfect for the fall season. I simply adore the metallic shimmer of this polish!!! On its first coat, this polish was quite sheer. It actually was a little thin when I started to apply it, which made me nervous, but with a generous second coat, it provided perfect coverage. What people sometimes forget is the advantage of a slightly thinner polish: it dries super-quickly! I wore Deck the Dolls over base coat, and topped it with my China Glaze Fast Forward top coat. You want to know the best thing about Deck the Dolls??? NO staining, even after nearly a week of wear!! (And I was worried. Blues and greens and all their variations have often stained my nails.)
On to gorgeous Jennifer from Shimmer Polish.
As soon as I wore Deck the Dolls, I wanted to pair it with Jennifer. What do you think?
Jennifer is SO pretty, and I cannot wait to pair it with another base. Or two. Maybe a nude or a pink. Or white or black (my faves!)!! I also love how each bottle of Shimmer has a tiny little heart sticker in a matching colour to the polish on the label. Can you say, adorable??
