Shimmer Polish – Julie

Shimmer Polish – Julie Julie looks more purple from afar, but up close you can see that it’s basically a mix of glitters in pretty much every single color, lol! I don’t know how she does it, but all her polishes are a mix of tons of different colored glitters, but somehow they all look […]

Shimmer Polish – Bella

Another dark vampy shade for fall! Love this! Bella is a black tinted base with matte black and silver micro glitter and lots of red glitter. Bella was a little different to apply then the other Shimmers I’ve tried so far. Not bad, just different. I’m wondering if it could be all the micro glitter in […]
