Swatches & Review - Shimmer Melissa & Jenny

Hi guys! I was feeling kind of creative last week, so I've got 2 more skittlettes with Shimmer polishes for you today. The first one is done with Shimmer Melissa, a gorgeous girly mix with magenta and gold, and the second one iw done with Shimmer Jenny, a bright and colourful mix of blue, purple and gold.















First up is Melissa. As I mentioned above, Melissa is a mix of magenta and gold. The magenta is actually a combination of small pink, red and purple glitter, which makes this one sparkly and gorgeous polish! Melissa has a clear base, so I layered 2 coats over Essence Lilac is my style on my thumbs and middle and ring fingers. On my index fingers I did some stamping with China glaze Passion and the curly pattern from bm plate 314 (this pattern is so gorgeous, I have to stop myself from using it every time I do some stamping). My ring fingers got a single coat of Passion and a little rhinestone.






Jenny is quite a colourful mix of different colours in a clear base. It has multiple shades and sizes of blue glitter, gold, copper, silver and purple. It's a little bit to chaotic but ideal for a skittlette. You might remember the skittlette I did with Shimmer Kim a while ago. I love that manicure so much that I decided to do something similar with Jenny. This time I used P2 Call me, A-England Galahad, China glaze Passion and bm plate 222 to do some layering, a gradient, stamping and a platter nail.

Again, Shimmer polishes are a dream to apply. They are dense, but not thick. They are sparkly and have great colour combinations. Removal, as with all glitter, is a pain, but so worth it! I hope you guys liked this post and see you next week!
