Twinsie Tuesday: Cutesy and Girly


I was really torn over today's Twinsie Tuesday post.  Required to show a cutesy and girly mani, my mind went instantly to pink.  I have a million and one pink polishes, but I couldn't think of anything to do with them that would make the quintessential girly color that much more girly.  

I tried thinking back to when I was a little girl and what I was into and I immediately remembered my obsession with The Little Mermaid.  And then it hit me, what's more girly than a mermaid? (Okay, maybe a princess or a fairy, but I liked the mermaid idea so let's just go with it.)

For my girly mermaid mani, I layered Shimmer Polish Sarah over Sally Hansen New Wave Blue, a combo that reminded me of a DIY Deborah Lippmann mermaid polish.  Sarah's blue, yellow, and teal iridescent micro glitter reflected beautifully over the teal creme and gave the appearance of shimmery scales on a mermaid tail.  Can't you just see Ariel rocking this fishtail?







What's really cool about Sarah is the mix of hex and mini square glitters that beautifully mix into this oceanic masterpiece.  Another win from Shimmer.

If you're interested in purchasing Sarah or any other Shimmer Polish, visit the brand's Etsy shop where you can pick one up for $12 USD a bottle.
