Hiya lovelies, and welcome to another letter in the A-Z of Polish. We're up to W this week, and it just so happens that I received something in the post the other week which is perfect for today. This is Shimmer Polish - Wendy, which is a beautiful mix of purple, copper and turquoise glitters in a clear base.
In these photo's, I'm wearing just 1 coat over a plain black cream. I did consider using a different colour at first, but in the end I decided that black would let the colours in the glitter do the talking better. If you've followed this blog for a while, you probably know already that I adore Shimmer Polish. They were actually the first indie brand I ever tried, and they're also the non-UK indie that I own the most of. Wendy is a great example of why. I wasn't totally sold on this polish in the bottle, but once I actually got it on my nails I was swooning! The colours also make me think of Halloween a bit too, which is never a bad thing.
The formula was just like every other Shimmer I've tried so far - smooth and easy to apply, with a great glitter to base ratio, and excellent dispersal across the nail. It's packed with glitter, and I imagine it would have no issues building up to full coverage in no more than 3 coats.
Still, that's enough gushing from me. I'll leave you guys with the rest of the swatches, and see you down at the bottom :)
You can purchase Shimmer Polish via their Etsy store (here), or direct from their blog (here). You can also stalk them on Facebook (here), Twitter (here), and Instagram (here, although the IG isn't very active so FB or twitter is probably better)
So, that's all from me today, but I'll be back tomorrow to catch up on the British Nail Bloggers Colour me Crazy challenge. If you'd like to check out what the other ladies have managed to find for W this week, here are the links for the ladies who have posted so far. The lovely Charlie is a little busy today and won't be able to update the hub straight away, and a few of our ladies are running a little behind, which is why I'm linking like this today. Can you believe we've only got 3 letters left!? Me neither! :D
