Shimmer Marilyn

Hi loves! Sunday night already.. where does the weekend go?! It always goes by so fast :-(. I've been editing pictures all afternoon and also created my first ever galaxy nails. I think they came out quite nice!

Today I have a very pretty polish for you, another Shimmer stunner! This is called Marilyn and it's a red glitter. I absolutely LOVED how this looked on me and will be very appropriate for Christmas and such. This is a burgundy glitter and the base is tinted, so it build up easier. I used 3 coats for opacity. It applied okay, it is a very packed glitter so you have to be careful you don't get thick nails. That's why I did a very thin first coat with barely any glitter but just to get the basecolor down. Then build it up with 2 normal coats and you have an amazing result. The depth in this is beautiful!




Unfortunately it is a bit gritty.. I topped it with a coat of Gelous and a coat of Essence Better Than Gel Top Sealer (an older bottle so it wasn't as thin anymore). The next morning it was a bit bumpy again.





What do you think of this gorgeous vampy glitter? And what is your favorite topcoat to tame those hungry glitters?
