Shimmer Jasmine: one polish four looks

Hi everyone!

It’s quite a lot of time since I last used glitters you know. When I wore OPI Amazon… Amazoff with a peel-off base coat underneath I thought it was a chance to take out one of my Shimmer’s. This indie brand still makes my favourite glitters ever.

I picked Shimmer Jasmine to do a glitter gradient over OPI Amazon… Amazoff, as I thought they will make a great combo. And I think I was right.

Ciao a tutti!

Era un po’ che non usavo dei glitter e quando ho messo l’OPI Amazon… Amazoff con una base peel-off ho pensato che fosse una buona occasione per tirare fuori uno dei miei Shimmer. Questa marca indie è tuttora la mia preferita quando si parla di glitter.

Ho scelto Shimmer Jasmine per creare una gradient con l’OPI Amazon… Amazoff perchè mi sembrava una combinazione azzeccata. E in effetti credo che lo sia.

Because the weather still sucks I decided to matte it.
Siccome il tempo fa sempre pena ho usato un top coat matte per opacizzare il look.

On day 2 I covered the whole nail to kinda spice up my mani without completely changing it.
Il secondo giorno ho coperto tutta l’unghia con i glitter, così da avere una nuova manicure senza rifarla da capo.

And I mattified it again.

I used my Butter London matte top coat but I am very unsatisfied with it for glitters. Fortunately a couple of days ago I was able to find my old and lost Essence matte top coat which I just love best.

E ancora una volta l’ho mattificata.

Ho usato il top coat matte di Butter London che secondo me non funziona tanto bene coi glitter. Per fortuna l’altro giorno ho ritrovato il mio caro vecchio top coat matte Essence che funziona sempre bene.

And that was it! I loved all combinations but the matte ones just rock during bad weather days imho. In fact I just mattified my current mani, too.

Tell me what you think of the looks! And do you like doing minor changes to your mani instead of changing it all over?

Shimmer Polish is based in California and ships internationally. You can find her creations at:

E questo era tutto! Mi sono piaciute tutte le combinazioni, ma quando il tempo è brutto devo dire che ho un debole per il matte. E infatti anche oggi ho opacizzato la manicure fatta ieri!

Fatemi sapere cosa ne pensate di queste proposte. E ditemi se anche voi modificate di poco le vostre manicure invece di togliere e rimettere tutto!
