NOTD 158 – Featured Color Friday – Katherine

Happy Friday! We made it to another Friday! woohoo!

Today I have for you the last Shimmer girl I have been telling you guys about, ‘Katherine’. This the perfect Fall color. Painting Katherine totally gets me ready, I am just waiting for Fall and Halloween now! Bring it on I cannot wait! That is my favorite time of the year anyway so I am always wishing for it to come early 🙂

*This polish was sent to me for unbiased review.

‘Katherine’ is a gorgeous bronze glitter that also has some sparse specs of brown.

For this look, I topped two coats of ‘Katherine’ overtop two coats of ‘Sally Hansen’s – Forbidden Fudge’

I then did a very subtle stamping look; you can see it better in some pictures than others. I stamped a snake skin pattern on my pinky using stamp ‘Wistonia w101’ and ‘Essie -Penny Talk’. I then stamped the animal paw print on top of that using ‘ Sally Hansen – Forbidden Fudge’.

NOTD 156 – Featured color Friday – Jasmine

As you may know by now, that is if you read my last post.. 🙂 My husband had his tonsils out Wednesday 😦 so I announced on my FB page I wouldn’t be able to introduce you to one of the remaining two Shimmer girls until possibly today. Everything went well Wednesday, he’s just been very sleepy. So while he was sleeping again yesterday I took off Cindy and put on Jasmine. 🙂

‘Shimmer – Jasmine’ to me is a thinner version of Linna. ‘Linna’ is a teal and emerald glitter mix while ‘Jasmine’ is an Aquamarine mix, side by side very similar, and both gorgeous.

NOTD 154 – Featured Color Friday – Special Sneak Peek

Happy Friday guys! Today, 9 years ago my husband and I tied the knot at the Justice of Peace in Killeen, TX; The Army town that we were living in. 🙂 Five years later with Army deployments behind us, we renewed our vows in a ‘wedding ceremony’ and reception back in Jersey shared by our closest friends and family. Nine years later, we still have the most special, strongest relationship. I don’t know what I’d do without him ❤

On another exciting note, I have a sneak peak of a new and upcoming Shimmer Polish! I received four special polishes in the mail the other day from Shimmer and of course my favorite was the one not even up for sale yet, its brand spanking new!

*This polish was sent to me for unbiased review.

I have for you, ‘Astrid’. It’s a Gorgeous light purple base, not quite clear, suspended glitter polish. the glitter flecks are all shapes, there are purples, and pinks, and my favorite the color changing ones depending on the light. Unfortunately not the best for photo taking so I did my best, I hope that the pictures can do this stunning polish justice.

I used two coats of ‘Catrice – Heavy Metalilac’ on my accent finger and two coats of ‘OPI – Planks A Lot’ on the rest along with two coats of ‘Astrid’ On my accent finger, I used my new stamp, ‘Winstonia – W102′  using “Essie – Nothing else metals’

Shimmer Polishes was started on just the pure obsession of polish just like the rest of us. She however makes AMAZINGLY gorgeous glitter polishes. I for one couldn’t even dream up some of these beauties. All of the Shimmer polishes are named after family and friends that she draws inspiration from.

NOTD 71 – Shimmer Polish

I am a little out-of-order here, I had this on my nails last week and did not post as I wanted to get my 9/11 mani up and then I had to edit and pick out the pics I liked the best. Unfortunately I took these pics before I found out that awesome new feature on my camera.. because this was another polish hard to capture. It had so much blue and so much purple hues that all my camera wanted to pick up were the blue hues, either way it’s gorgeous!

First is two pics of it with one coat of “Shimmer – Gerry” over two coats of “OPI Nicole’s – Back to Reality TV”

Next up is the finished product(2c over 2c) As I stated this was prior to me finding out that one setting or lighting feature in my camera so there are a few shots of me trying to get the color to show just right on the camera, here goes 😀

I even tried to hold a blue pen or putting my hands over a purple background to see if you could pick up the purples.. no such luck, so here is my fabulous blue pen shot! haha

Also please excuse the wear.. this was also taken after a few days of wear, I didn’t wrap and I was taking photos in every lighting angle for days determined to show the right colors. So some pictures are more worn than others.

Overall, Gerry as all Shimmer polishes I have tried so far, was absolutely fabulous, excellent formula, very easy to work with and manipulate.

What do you think? What are your favorite Shimmer colors if you have tried them already?
