Shimmer Polish - Custom Order

Hooray for my first custom polish!! The moment I saw that Cindy from Shimmer was taking custom orders, I knew I was gonna have to get one. I initially waited a couple weeks (unsuccessfully tried to convince myself I didn't need it), and then caved in. Boy am I glad I did - I absolutely love it!! She makes it so easy - you just tell her what you want the primary & secondary colors to be (I chose purple & teal), then I just told her some of my other fave colors and basically said "the more the merrier." She did a phenomenal job! It has all the colors of the rainbow and more!

This is 2 and a 1/2 coats (I had to do a little dabbling) of Shimmer Maria, followed by 1 coat of Gelous, & 1 coat of Essie Good To Go.

I apologize in advance for some of the crappy photos. It was raining all day and I had a hard time capturing the true beauty of this polish :(

so dang blurry.. but color accurate!

This pic turned out real artsy fartsy.. I like it.

and the macro!:

These 2 pics were taken on the day I first received this polish. As you can see it was a much sunnier day:
I had swatched it on my thumb that day & forgot to moisturize my cuticles so they have been cropped out for your viewing pleasure!

The gorgeous bottle shot!

I purchased this off of Shimmer Polish's Etsy page. Check out Shimmer on Facebook as well, and don't forget to "like" them :)

Since this polish is my namesake I figured I should post my favorite song of all time to go with it. I have loved this song since I was 6 years old, and I probably always will. Here is "Enjoy The Silence" by Depeche Mode.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
