Shimmer - Trisha and Vanessa

Hi everyone are you all having a good weekend? I'm a bit sad that it's Monday tomorrow which means work :(

Today I have another two Shimmer polishes to share with you created by the talented Cindy.

Vanessa contains a mix of black, silver, blue, green and red glitter of varying sizes which all blend together to create a charcoal grey/gunmetal finish. Coverage of this polish is fantastic since a lot of finer glitter has been used. This polish definitely appeals to my inner rock chick and one I'll be using a lot over the cooler month.

Here I have layer one coat over Barry M - Grey.
I showed this mani to my bf and asked him what it remined him of. His reply was a crime scene!

Trisha is a more subdued glitter compared to the likes of Jasmine and Alice. The mix of different coloured glitters instead of popping get a little lost within the dominant coppery red glitter. This may be a good or bad thing depending on personal preference. As the red hue is not really to my taste I decided to try this over a bright red base which is more me. I actually prefer it more layered like this as the colours really stand out and kind of remind me of New Year celebrations and fireworks.

What do you guys think of Shimmer polish so far? Have you treated yourself to any? If you're interested in buying these polishes or want to check out other glitters available you can visit Cindy's Etsy shop. Each bottle retails for $12 USD.
