Shimmer Polish Swatches: Part 1

Who doesn't love a good sparkly glitter polish? Well, I have 14 gorgeous polishes by Shimmer  to show you over the next few days. Known for their super sparkly glitter toppers, Shimmer Polish offers a huge variety of colors in beautiful combinations. These polishes can be worn alone, but I chose to layer them over similar colors. I grouped the polishes into 3 different "categories" - today I have four swatches to show you, all in similar color groups.

First up is Karen, a gorgeous glitter topper packed with pink and purple hexes of various sizes. (Disclaimer - I am going to have some trouble describing these polishes, haha! They are all so packed with so many colors. We will let the photos do the talking.) I love this combo together! The colors of the glitter match so well with the base color. Shown above is two coats over OPI I'm Feeling Sashy, and top coat.

Here is a closeup on the nail and in the bottle.

Nichole is a super patriotic glitter topper filled with red, silver, and blue glitters in various sizes. This polish is perfect for the Fourth of July! I chose to pair it over purple to show off the different colors, but it would look beautiful over blue or white as well. Shown above is two coats over OPI You're Such A Budapest, and top coat.

Look at that closeup! I love the color combination in this polish.

Next up is Wendy, a festive glitter filled with turquoise, purple and orange glitters. This polish feels like a party in a bottle! Shown is two coats over China Glaze Tart-y for the Party, and top coat.

Here is the closeup on the nail and in the bottle.

And last but certainly not least, we have Kim, a glitter top coat filled with blue, purple, and silver glitters. As soon as I saw this polish in the bottle, I knew it would look stunning over a dark color. Shown is two coats over OPI Miss You-Niverse, and top coat.

Here is the closeup on the nail and in the bottle.

Overall, I'm really enjoying these polishes so far! They are perfect for any glitter lover, or for a night out. I think Nichole is my favorite of these four, but Kim comes in close second!

You can purchase any of these polishes via email on the Shimmer Polish website, or on Etsy for $12 USD each. You can also contact them for a custom polish (!) for $15 USD. Make sure to follow them on Facebook for news and updates.

Which of these polishes do you like best? Do you have any Shimmer Polishes?
