Shimmer Polish - Lindsey swatch review

I have even more shimmery Shimmer goodness for you today!

This is Shimmer Polish - Lindsey. Also, my favorite gold glitter polish. I didn't think much of it in the bottle to be honest, I thought it would be a nice addition to my collection for nail art. But when I swatched it, it just blew me away by how gorgeous it is!

The Shimmer Polish formula is easy to work with, this could even be opaque in just two thicker coats, but I did use three for the swatches. I think this just looks stunning on it's own, it's probably how this shade of gold compliments my skin. But the holo in the glitter is also eye catching, I love Lindsey so much!

Here you can see how it builds up. Index - 1 coat, middle - 2 coats, ring and piny - 3 coats. I used pretty thick coats so I'd say the middle finger here is pretty much good to go in just two coats!

Quatrefoil nail art manicure Essie - Cashmere Bathrome gray and white quatrefoil nail art manicure design Cirque - XX glitter gradient

I have been drooling over gorgeous quatrefoil designs for quite a while, and when I was completely stumped for inspiration today, I remembered quatrefoil and decided that today is as good a day as any!

I used Essie - Cashmere Bathrobe as my base, it is the most gorgeous grey polish with flecks of silver shimmer, looove! For the quatrefoil design I used OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls.

I didn't think I wanted the quatrefoil design on my nails, because I didn't think it would turn out as good as it did, lol :p So I did a glitter gradient using Cirque - XX on my index and thumb, which looks amazing over this dark gray.

I am loving how chic this turned out! Would you be interested in a tutorial? I am defenitely going to do quatrefoil designs again ;)

Today I have a new video! This time it's a review of these water decals from the Born Pretty Store, plus a tutorial on how to use them!

I think these decals are so adorable! I love the colors and the swirly, girly design. I layered the decals over OPI - My Vampire Is Buff, and I think the cream colored polish work really well with these decals.

Shimmer Polish - Bella swatch review

Another dark vampy shade for fall! Love this!

Shimmer Polish - Bella swatch review

Bella is a black tinted base with matte black and silver micro glitter and lots of red glitter.

Shimmer Polish - Bella swatch review

Bella was a little different to apply then the other Shimmers I've tried so far. Not bad, just different. I'm wondering if it could be all the micro glitter in it that maybe stuck to the brush and made it.... I don't know how to explain it, it was just different, lol! But I didn't have any problems applying or anything, and it covered pretty much completely in three coats.

A shiny top coat really made this polish come to life, and like all other Shimmers, I adore this one on it's own as well.

You can see in the pictures above how it builds up to full opacity in three coats. Index - 1 coat, middle - 2 coats, ring and pinky - 3 coats.

I wanted blue, I wanted flowers, I wanted simple. Check, check, check!

What I noticed searching my stash, trying to find the blue base color I had in my mind, is that I do not have it. Oh how sad, I need to buy more nail polish!

But this one works though. I bought it almost a year ago, while on vacation in Gran Canaria, and this is my first time using it! It's by a brand called Marie Lluy, the color is simply named 134. I think i bought two more shades from this brand, and I regret not buying more, because I'm impressed! It was opaque in one coat, dried quickly and super shiny!

I believe it's a spanish brand, because when I google it, all I get is spanish sites ;)

For the flowers I used OPI - Alpine Snow and OPI - My Voice Is A Little Norse. This design sort of remind me of Marimekko flowers ;)

You have probably noticed that I dropped out of the 31DC2014. I did not think ahead when deciding to join. I have been so busy at both work and in my private life, I have barely been home the last two weeks. So it was pretty much impossible for me to do the challenge right now. I want to do it though, but maybe at a slightly slower pace, like two-three times a week? I also think things will start slowing down in October, and I might start it then :)

OPI - Viking In A Vinter Vonderland swatch review nail polish 3D bling nail art manciure

I was sent this gorgeous pack of 3D bling to show you guys from the Born Pretty Store

OPI - Viking In A Vinter Vonderland swatch review nail polish 3D bling nail art manciure OPI - Viking In A Vinter Vonderland swatch review nail polish 3D bling nail art manciure

I used the rhinestone charm as an accent over OPI - Viking In A Vinter Vonderland, and I just love this combination so much. The silver charm accents this polish so beautifully. I just put the charm into the wet topcoat and let it dry, but if you want to make sure it will last a long time, I'd suggest using a bit of nail glue to attach it.

Holy crap! Aren't these the prettiest rhinestones you have ever seen?! I am so in love!

And especially with this combination, OPI - How Great Is Your Dane? looks so beautiful with these rhinestones as an accent.

I just plopped the rhinestones on before the topcoat was dry. Then to make them last longer, I added some more topcoat around and over the rhinestones to really seal them in. Doing this will make them stay on your nail until you are ready to change up your manicure :)

The multicolored effect of these rhinestones is sooo gorgeous! It's really visible in these close up pictures.
