Shimmer Crystal

October 12, 2013

Today I have a delicious chocolaty manicure to share with you, created with one of the gorgeous glitter polishes by Shimmer Polish.
I layered Shimmer Crystal over a rich chocolate base (LA Splash Forbidden, 2 coats), creating a glitter gradient at the base of the nail, then topped it with one coat of Poshe.


Shimmer Crystal is a gorgeous glitter mix of copper and brown, and additional colors like burgundy, teal and silver that make this glitter more interesting and dimensional. The glitter is mixed in a slightly brown tinted base, which is great for layering this polish on it's own or over darker colors as I did for this look.
As all Shimmer Polish glitters, this polish is also packed with a generous amount of glitter that makes application easy and gives great coverage with just one coat. This is also a great polish to work with when creating glitter gradients.
I think this is a great glitter for autumn, the colors in this polish are just perfect for this season. It actually makes me think of Thanks Giving (tho we don't celebrate this holiday here lol)!
I hope you will like this look, feel free to let me know what you think, I always love reading your comments!
