Twinsie Tuesday: Favorite Indie

Despite the title of this post, I don't have a favorite indie.  The ones I've tried have largely been fantastic with excellent customer service (KBShimmer, SmittenPolish, Super Wonder Beauty, to name just a few).  But to choose a favorite, now that's just difficult.

In the end, I chose to swatch Shimmer Polish as it the most transformative for me as a nail polish blogger.  Having the opportunity to swatch for Shimmer Polish has not only increased my appreciation for glitter, but has also pushed me as a blogger photographer -- anyone who has had to capture the intricacies of glitter polish will know what I'm referring to.

One of my favorite Shimmers is Celine, a rich cranberry jelly flushed with tiny gold and cherry glitter pieces and deep oxblood microglitter.  Layered over LVX Celine, Celine provided me with a rich and luxurious color combination that I swoon over.

Isn't that just such a juicy macro?  Celine is seriously delicious.

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

  1. I love Celine as well! I completely understand what you mean about trying to really capture Shimmer Polishes! Ahhh!

  2. I'd never be able to wear this because I'd be staring at my nails all day. :)

  3. Very pretty! Shimmer definitely makes you appreciate glitters. I love that her creations aren't super chunky, but still fall into the glitter bomb category.

  4. Ahh, I love Shimmer polishes! I should have switched my favorite to Shimmer Stephanie obviously!

  5. Wonderful choice! This is gorgeous!

  6. They're so much more complex than my camera allows me to show!

  7. Lol, it's a stunner, I'll give you that!

  8. Exactly. I can't stand chunky disco balls so Cindy's Shimmers really fit the bill.

  9. This is gorgeous! It makes me think of pomegranates!

  10. Shimmer Polishes are so beautiful!
