Swatches & Review - Shimmer Crystal & Alessandra

Hi guys! Ready for even more Shimmer polishes? :D I think I've got around 10 more to show you after today, so I hope you are liking them! Today I've got 2 very complex shades for you: Crystal and Alessandra. Crystal is a very warm copper mix and Alessandra is an ultra sparkly red and green polish.




 Sound interesting?

As I mentioned above, Crystal is a very warm mix of different sizes copper mixed with gold and iridescent glitter in a clear base. It's not too gold nor too orange for my tastes, so I quite like it! When I saw the iridescent glitter it has, it occurred to me that I have ta little jar of he exact same colour glitter, so I just had to do something with that. So for this manicure I did alternating nails with 2 coats of Crystal over Catrice Oh my goldness (such a silly name, it's not gold at all!) and Oh my goldness on its own with a border of iridescent glitter.

I quite like how this turned out and Crystal is really pretty! The iridescent glitter really gives her some extra oomph!













'I'm dreaming of a white Christmas'. I know its waaaaay early, but I can't help it, this polish just screams Christmas to me! This is Alessandra, a mix of small red, green and orange glitter in a clear base. It's insanely sparkly and because all the glitter is small it dries very smooth. I layered 3 coats over OPI Skyfall (<3 this polish!) and topped it with a nice coat of topcoat. So pretty!

  1. Alessandra is really really pretty. Crystal is a bit too brownish for me, but it is still pretty!

  8. Those shades are pretty, but your nails could make anything gorgeous. I am sure of it! Not taking anything away from the shades though! Just being a #fangirl!

  9. True, Alessandra is a Christmas nail polish for me too. I like the combination of "holiday" glitters on it
