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?

Purchases and things

My mom and I had a Lia Sophia book party and with your sales you can earn free jewelry, which we did. I had gotten three rings, a bracelet, a necklace and a pair of earrings. My rings were a size too small and the earrings just did not look right on my little ear lobes, so I exchanged the earrings for the necklace below and my rings finally came in!!

The next thing was an actual purchase, and it was from Ninja Polish it’s a “Ninja Polish color named Alexandrite” This is an Emerald shifting to purple color. It says to paint over dark colors to really get the full effect, I cannot wait to try this. I did a swatch over nothing on one of my swatch tips and it’s simply gorgeous. However another one of those colors that will simply be impossible to capture in a photo, we shall see it kept coming up green in the pic 😦

Next up is a stamping plate that I also got from Ninja Polish

Next was my second Indie Polish, “Hit Polish” I got ” Jack-O’-Lantern” and “Snozzberry” I have not tried these yet, only on my nail swatches and they are gorgeous, I will swatch “Jack-O’-Lantern” closer to Halloween where I will do a bunch of Halloween manis as that is my favoritist time of the year. 🙂 “Snozzberry” swatches are soon to come.

Next up is “Gerry” from “Shimmer Polish” along with a sneak peek of a swatch of it (prior to my NOTD post about it)

So here is the sneak peek… no matter What I did, inside, outside, flash, no flash, right under lights, shading, in the car, in the sun, overtop purple backgrounds, overtop blue backgrounds…. the color continuously showed up as a blue with glitter. Although I painted this atop “OPI Nicole – Back to Reality TV” I painted two coats, and I feel it’s more purple. but it certainly has a lot of blue glitter too. See for yourself Linda over at Shimmer does describe it as a “Violet Purple Navy Blue glitter polish”

The formula was great, this is two coats over “Back to Reality TV” covered it for the most part. beautiful glitters. She has gorgeous shades to offer you should check her out, I am starting my list now, of next colors to get from “Shimmer”.

Last purchase and certainly not least 😀 is my very first one, it was from “LUSH Lacquer”, I got “Salt N’ Peppa” and “Slumber Party” To see the swatch of “Salt N’ Peppa” click here: I am so mad at myself that I only got minis of these because I simply LOVE “Salt N’ Peppa” so far, I have not tried “Slumber Party” just yet. I am like so afraid to use it because I don’t want it to end!! I already have a wish list of this line going 😀

That is all for now. 😀
