Swatches & Review - Shimmer Eva & Vicki

Hi guys! You know what I am going so say right? I've got two more gorgeous Shimmer polishes for you! Today's polishes are very happy and girly colours: a sexy red and a sparkly pink.













Wanna check them out?


First up is Eva, a very pretty red mix made up of very small red and silver glitter. As with all red based Shimmer polishes the base is slightly coloured, and since the glitter is very tiny this polish dries quite smooth and not too thick, so you can easily wear this polish by itself. As always howeve, rI layered it and show here are 2 coats of Eva over 1 coat of OPI Skyfall with a coat of topcoat.

Red, silver, sparkle, sexiness, what's not to like?



And second is Vicki. Vicki is, as you may guess from the colour, dedicated to Breast Cancer Research and with purchase of this polish donations will be made. Since October is Breast Cancer Awerenes month I thought it was fitting to post this today.

Vicki is a clear based polish with different sizes of pink and silver glitter combined with some iridescent and pink bar glitter. shown here is 2 coats of Vicki over a base of P2 Heartbeat. I must admit that this polish is not one of my favourites. For some reason I don't like the look of bar glitter and I find the combination of the baby pink and iridescence a bit too...well...lets just say it not my taste ;)
But as with all Shimmer polishes, it applies great and it's very sparkly. So if you do like pink, bar glitter and iridescence, this will be a great polish for you.


That's it again for our weekly dose of glitter :D which one do you prefer, Eva or Vicki? Don't forget to check back next Monday for the last 2 Shimmer polishes I want to show you!

  23. I know exactly what you mean! Just the addition of some simple silver glitter makes this such a great polish compared to a normal red glitter.
