Shimmer Liana

  I was thrilled last week when Cindy from Shimmer Polish asked me to review some of her creations, and even more excited when I received the package - these gorgeous polishes have some serious sparkle going on!  I was pretty much drooling by the time I was halfway through the package.  I considered doing one or two large swatch posts, but I actually wanted to get the chance to wear these.... so they will be coming at you one or two at a time.  Now which to start with.....

Outdoors, shade
   Shimmer Liana is a gorgeous midnight blue glitter bomb.  This polish is made up of predominantly dark and medium blue, black, and silver glitters in a variety of size.  Some of the silver glitter is also holographic, which makes this sparkle like crazy in sun and artificial light!

Outdoors, sunlight
  Application was a little on the thick side, which is sort of to be expected for a polish with this much glitter packed into it.  While a bit thick, I didn't really have much of a problem with it and it applied very nicely for a glitter!  Three coats for full coverage.  This would also work really nice as a layering polish.

Outdoors, natural lighting
Indoors, artificial light

  I felt like my camera wanted to focus on the black and silver more than the blue at times on this one.  It actually looks very blue in person.  While this picture is blurry and the lighting gave me horrible lobster hands, it caught a bit more of the blue as well as the holographic sparkle.

Indoors, artificial light
  I love the combination of glitters in this - blue and black has always been a favorite of mine.  I was really impressed with Liana and can't want to try out some of the other glitters from Shimmer!  If you are interested in Liana or any other Shimmer polish, check out Cindy's Etsy store or her blog for more information!
