Woo Hoo! Tuesday was my big 3 year anniversary  I'm planning a big, week long, giveaway coming up soon, so stay tuned!

Today I have a lovely, Shimmer Polish named "Maria" that I wore last week, and of course ...its BLUE!

I started with 3 coats of Zoya "Tart" (it is thin), and then added "Maria" to the top and let it "rain down" on my nails, LOL :)

Zoya "Tart". It is "...a vibrant medium blue-raspberry candy blue with soft  metallic shimmer". It is thinner, so 3 coats I needed for full color opacity.

Shimmer Polish "Maria" is a mix of royal blue glitter, some lighter and some darker, in a clear base. Varying sizes in the glitter gives this color depth and variation! Applied like a dream, no issues, no sharp pieces sticking up, so perfect !

Here are some pictures in indirect light to show the detail in the glitter...

I wore this manicure for 5 days (1 chip on my thumb), I was super busy and simply too exhausted to paint them once I got home.  Weeks like this are the reason why I do 2 coats of top coat  (or more) on EVERY manicure, you never know when  you need your manicure to LAST!.

Keep It Sweet!

*The Shimmer Polish was sent for review.
Pin It!

Hi! Love this mani. When you say you let it rain down, is that a brush technique or do you put a glob near the cuticle and then hold your hand down and let the glob spread/drip down the nail? Thanks!
