Shimmer Polish Sophie

I am unabashedly fond of pink.  Not in an overtly obnoxious Barbie goes to Malibu kinda way.  And not in the ironic, bleeding heart Betsey Johnson way.  I just like pink in that old school, classic sense that if you want to be feminine, this is the color of choice.

That being said, as I look at Shimmer Polish Sophie layered over Pixi Luminous Lilac (my first Pixi thanks to Marisa!), I can think of nothing but little girls at fake tea parties, cupcakes, sprinkles, and lipstick.  I personally take that as a sign that the polish is a keeper.

What I love about this glitterbomb is how simple and sweet the glitter is, ranging from pink and lavender to tangerine and red.  This glitter isn't as highly reflective as other Shimmers which is also a plus in my book since I prefer a more matte glitter to super shiny.  

This is one thick coat of the Pixi.



I think Sophie would make a fabulous center to a pink jelly sandwich, layered under a light pink jelly (OPI Pinking of You, perhaps?).  I'll have to try that some day since I'm quite smitten with this glitter.  

If you are interested in purchasing this or any other Shimmer Polish, please visit Cindy's Etsy shop by clicking here.  Each bottle retails for $12 USD and she now makes custom polish upon request!
