Shimmer Polish Nichole

Hey guys! How have y’all been? I actually ventured out this weekend to visit my husband’s side of the family since it was his birthday weekend. It was hot out and it also happened to be the tax-free weekend for back to school. There were more people out than usual but we managed to just stick to the few stores he wanted to go to (I could care less….I don’t like crowds). We also shaved down our dog so he would stay cooler in this heat. I’ve been doing a mini polish inventory at home and slapped on a neon shade for my toes and a glittery number on the nails. What went on my nails is Shimmer Polish Nichole.

I feel like I should’ve worn this on July 4th since the color scheme would work very well for it. It’s made up of primarily red, silver and blue glitter, just like how the creator described it on the website. The sizes of the glitters are all different, but that just makes this shade more fun in my opinion. Just like other Shimmer Polish shades I’ve used and reviewed, glitter pieces are abundant and no sinking glitter at all even though I’ve had this bottle for more than a year. Glitter is decently packed. I had to retake the close-up shots later on because I actually ended up dinging that nail onto the corner of a table. Formula is good and it applied beautifully. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.

Another winner in my book definitely!

Shimmer Polish retails for $12 each and you can purchase them on the website or through their Etsy store. If none of the shades are quite right, you can request a custom polish to be made in any name you want for $15 each.

Shimmer Polish Candace

Hey guys! The weekend is about to start and I’m sure glad for it! I’ll be catching up on some zzz’s and hopefully take some more pictures for my other blog entries. I’ve been busy putting all kinds of beauty items to the test this week. My co-worker sisters have noticed with the subtle shimmer here and there they see on me. For today’s post, here’s Shimmer Polish Candace.

I honestly was surprised at how much I liked this shade. It looked a lot like yellow to me but it’s actually gold. It’s made up of primarily gold and black glitter, just like how the creator described it on the website. The gold glitter pieces are holographic when the light hits them right. Just like other Shimmer Polish shades I’ve used and reviewed, glitter pieces are abundant and no sinking glitter at all even though I’ve had this bottle for more than a year. Formula is thin but applies beautifully. The glitter in this shade doesn’t feel as packed and abundant compared to their other shades I own. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.

Yummy. Another winner in my opinion.

Sinful Colors Girl’s Best Friend

Hey guys! It’s almost the weekend! I just got caught up with household stuff like laundry, so I’m looking forward to a relaxing long weekend for the 4th of July! Today’s post is on a shade that was released last holiday season. Here’s Sinful Colors Girl’s Best Friend.

Sinful Colors Girl’s Best Friend

Described as “pink baubles”, this is another shade from their Holiday Sheer Lustre Collection. This shade is made up of pink and silver glitter in a clear base. The glitter are round in shape. It applied nicely and I find this shade to be very buildable. I think 3 coats would make it look great on its own. As usual, I chose to feature shades on their own to show what it really looks like. This is just like Top Me Off but in pink. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

It’s a nice shade to have to apply over a mani that starts to show wear but you’re not ready to do a full-blown mani session yet.

Sinful Colors is available at various retailers and drugstores such as Walmart, Target, CVS, and Walgreens. They’re usually priced at $1.99 but you can score some for as low as $0.99 each when there is a BOGO promo or some special pricing on these.

Sally Hansen Hypnautical

Hey guys! Today’s the day I have my biometrics appointment in the city. It’s for legal paperwork and stuff. I hope it’s fast since the appointment they gave me is at noon. Lunch time! My husband will be driving me there (cause it’s in the city and I’m a scaredy cat with city driving) and we’ll probably grab some lunch while we’re there. It’s been a while since I featured a Sally Hansen shade so here’s Sally Hansen Hypnautical.

Sally Hansen Hypnautical

Hypnautical is one of their newer shades that I was most excited about. It’s a flakie glitter and I love those! This shade is made up of regular and flakie iridescent glitter in a tinted green base. While it is quite stunning in the bottle, not so much alone on the nails. I thought the green tint would come through more, but sadly no. This is definitely best used other shades, especially darker ones such as black or blue. Formula was pleasant to work with and it dried pretty fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

I’ll have to revisit this one again over other dark opaque shades, but at least this shows y’all what it looks like on its own.

This should be available generally wherever Sally Hansen is retailed.

Sinful Colors Silver Rainbows

Hey guys! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was more on the relaxing side. We made the trip down to L-town to see his parents and sister and nieces. It was fun since we got to spend a decent amount of time with them and there was a pool to beat the heat. Even our dog, Yeager, joined in on the fun! He loves to swim! Today’s post is on a shade that was released last holiday season. Here’s Sinful Colors Silver Rainbows.

Sinful Colors Silver Rainbow

Described as “slivers of silver”, this is another tinsel or bar glitter shade from their Holiday Tinsel Collection. This shade is made up of silver holographic tinsel glitter in a clear base. The size of the tinsel glitter is on the larger side so it looks chunkier. It applied nicely even though I find the formula for this a little bit on the thicker side. It would look great over all other shades except for silver I think. The color is just too close and I really like glitter shades to pop or have more of a contrast with the base shade. As usual, I chose to feature shades on their own to show what it really looks like. Just like Pink Icicles, I do find that you may have to fish out the tinsel glitter and move them around where you want with the brush or else it will look bare or clumped together in some spots. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

I think this shade would be great over darker creme shades like black or blue.
