Shimmer Cristina Skittlette

Hi guys! I have been lacking nail inspiration lately, and I've just been too busy to swatch, so I am sorry I haven't posted in a few days! But today I was looking at my untrieds and I found Shimmer Cristina, and I decided to do an inspired skittlette.

I started with a base of OPI AmazON...AmazOFF on the first two nails, then topped them off with Shimmer Cristina. For the ring finger, I painted on China Glaze At Vase Value and stamped a chevron pattern with OPI 4 in the Morning. Then, on my pinky nail, I painted on OPI Casino Royale. Pretty simple, right?

I love the depth of this glitter so I took a bottle shot to show you all the different colors. Isn't it so pretty?

I love a glitter with a good formula, and this one was no exception. It is quite sheer though, so I would recommend a similar base color. I also think this glitter would look great with a dark gray or black base color.

Here's something I haven't done in a while! I miss taking bottle shots so you can all have a quick and easy guide on what colors I used for my nail art, so I decided to bring it back. Don't these polishes look so good together? (Also, I noticed I spelled "Cristina" wrong in the photo, haha, but I didn't save the file, so you'll all just have to deal!)

You can purchase Cristina 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.

Some polishes were provided for my honest review.


  1. That is such a gorgeous color from Shimmer Polish. I love the skittle you created with it. Love your bottles shots too so its great to see it back :)

  2. This combination of polishes is perfection!

  3. This is great! Very cohesive.
