Shimmer Polish Erica

Hello my lovelies and happy Sunday! It's time for your weekly glitter dose, so today I'm showing you the last of the Shimmer Polishes that I was kindly sent for review. I didn't really know how to wear this one so I tried a couple of options. They both turned out great in real life, even if they were a little hard to photograph. I first decided to layer a coat of the glitter over a similar base color.

Erica* has a light green feel to it, although it consists of many different types of glitter. There's a bit of gold in there and I think I spotted some teal too. I decided to layer it over Pretty Serious Phantom Planet, because they seemed to match. And they did! The only problem was that with both being so sparkly it was very hard to photograph this combo.

I took some pictures in the sun to show you just how sparkly this manicure was. The glitters in Erica are a bit holographic and that gives a gorgeous effect in the sun. Erica has a great formula and good glitter payoff. I only used one coat over Phantom Planet for this look.

You know I love glitter gradients, so I had to do some glitter tips with this polish. I ended up choosing a very bright green base, China Glaze Def Defying, which I think also looks great paired with Erica.

I'm actually very proud of the picture above. You can clearly see the gorgeous glitter pieces in it. The two sets of pictures in this post have been done with different cameras and I think it's pretty obvious that the second one is much better. My sister got a new camera and gave me her old one, so I've been playing with it and learning how to use it for the past couple of weeks. These were the first successful pictures I took with it.

I'm very much in love with all the Shimmer Polishes I got to try. You can find Erica and many other gorgeous glitters over at their website or Etsy store. They also do custom glitters and ship internationally. I'd like to thank Cindy for the opportunity to review her polishes and hope you've all enjoyed these fabulous glitters.
