9 Days of Shimmer - Day 3, Carmen Glitterbomb

9 Days of Shimmer - Day 3 
Today I'm sharing Shimmer's Carmen polish, a lovely burnt orange gold stuffed with subtle, tiny multi-coloured glitters. Application on this was slightly harder to manage as it was so jam packed with glitter, which made it difficult to get a smooth cuticle curve. I layered it over Butter London Knees Up to give it an Autumn feel- I love the red peeking around the edges! There's two topcoats of Poshe on this mani and one coat of Gelous- this glitter has serious munchies.

I was hoping to get a decent shot of the sparkle explosion in the sun, but the weather was being a pain in the arse and didn't want to come out and play :( The perils of living in rainy Wales!

As I already had a glitter party going on, I thought to myself "What could better this?" And the answer was obvious- MORE GLITTER. I used Milani Red Flash and Purple Gleam over striping tape to create the lines, two lovely glitters that I acquired in a swap from the lovely Whitney from Apple Drops. They ended up looking like Christmas presents...and seeing as I had my first Christmas assault yesterday (a random gift magazine in the post) I guess it only seems apt!

 These are some heavy duty bling. There's three coats of glitter, one of Gelous, and FOUR layers of Poshe on these babies....they seriously weigh about a pound each!
Tomorrow I've got the best named polish in the collection....Alice, obviously. Stay tuned!

  1. Lovely! I can never get such crisp lines when doing a tape mani with glitters!
