Lynnderella Common Sense

Lynnderella Common Sense - one coat over China Glaze Fifth Avenue, topped with SV topcoat

Common Sense, described by Lynn herself as a "clear base with copper and pink shimmer", is exactly that, a mixture of copper and pink hex and square glitters with holographic and purple microglitters. To showcase the full color spectrum of Common Sense, I decided to layer it over China Glaze Fifth Avenue, a muted rose creme that complements Common Sense perfectly.  The copper glitters twinkle like the autumn leaves in Fall, making Common Sense THE polish to wear now.

Shimmer Polish: Tammy

Shimmer Polish Tammy - one coat over China Glaze Below Deck, topped with SV top coat

Shimmer Polish is another Indie polish brand that I have been lemming for some time, and finally I caved and ordered a few! I knew I must have Tammy the minute I saw swatches of it, and I am certainly not disappointed!

A mixture in sizes and shapes of silver, pink, purple, blue, and matte black glitters in a clear base, Tammy is glitzy and yet still elegant and classy. I only need to apply one coat for layering because the glitters are so dense! I have been wearing it for four days, and I have not experienced any bleeding or curling problem. I think the quality of Shimmer Polish is definitely up there amongst the other top Indie brands, and would definitely recommend it to anyone who love glitters!

Shimmer Polish can be purchased via Yorba's Etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ShimmerPolish?ref=shop_sugg. You may also get your own custom polish made, simply email Yorba, she is very friendly and helpful!

Nail Stamping with Barry M Denim

Just a quick post today. I did a fancy French tip mani with stamping over Barry M Denim. A few words on the polish itself, Denim is amazing! A true one coater, it comes to life with gorgeous shimmer when you apply a top coat. I'd definitely try to use it as a stamping polish next time.

What do you think of this mani? I think this is easier than doing freehand French tips!

Pretty &Pretty Polished Cheer Camp

Pretty & Polished Cheer Camp - two coats over Essence Team Nude, finished with a coat of SV

I have never been a cheerleader before, but I sure feel like one wearing Pretty & Polished Cheer Camp! A light, milky pink base sprinkled with pale pink and soft lilac hexes and micro pink glitters, this is definitely one of the more girly polishes out there. Cheer Camp is such a pretty polish, I think it'd be the perfect polish to wear for a romantic outing with that someone special!

This is my first time trying Pretty & Polished, but it definitely won't be my last! What is your favorite Pretty & Polished? Is there any other must-have?
