Shimmer Sarah

September 12, 2013

Today I have another gorgeous glitter by Shimmer Polish to share with you ladies.
This lovely glitter is Shimmer Sarah, it's a beautiful mix of teal, blue, purple and gold glitter. There is also a very delicate shimmer added to this polish, and it's all mixed in a slightly teal tinted base.
This shade is one of my favorite Shimmer polishes, it reminds me of a mermaid's tail, such a gorgeous and magical glitter!

I decided to create another glitter gradient with this polish, and layered it over a blue base. I applied two coats of  Barry M Blue Grape as the base (a beautiful royal blue shade, in a creme-jelly formula), then applied the glitter at the tips and pulled it towards the cuticle, creating a fading look. 
The base wasn't opaque completely at the free edge, so the glitter gradient was a great solution and covered the edges perfectly. As I've mentioned at my previous post featuring Shimmer polish, their formula is great for creating glitter gradients thanks to the variety of glitter sizes and the fact that you can get a generous amount of glitter with a single stroke.
I applied one coat of Seche Vite to smooth the glitter and add a shine to this look.
I think the final look of this manicure is quite lovely, the blue shade combined with this glitter makes me think of a magical mermaids swimming in a sparkly blue sea.
I hope you like this design, I would love to hear your thought about it.
