Shimmer – Jennifer

Usually glitter nail polishes are bright and vibrant. Usually but not always – Jennifer is a special pastel glitter, I have nothing like this one in my collection :)

Jennifer is a unique mix of tiny light blue and light purple glitters with large orange/yellow and black hex glitters in a clear base. Bottle shot:

… and on the swatch stick (3 thin coats, no top):

Jennifer can easily be layered over almost any color. I saw how perfect it is over light blue and grey, and how delicate it becomes when applied over nude or pink.

Today let’s try a different background for this special glitter :) I chose a plain white creme OPI Alpine Snow as a base, and I stamped a square pattern on my nail tips with Konad black. Black stamping is because of those black hexes that stand out in the pastel glitter mix.

The products I needed for this nail look:

  • OPI Alpine Snow
  • Konad black stamping nail polish
  • Konad m61 plate
  • Shimmer Jennifer
  • Clear base
The only downside of the polish is its removal process. Just like with all glitters, it takes time and effort to take this glitter shield off. However, if you are a lucky owner of a glitter base, you can forget about this disadvantage :)

Shimmer nail polishes, including Jennifer, can be found on Etsy, and they are also available by email through the Shimmer Polish website.

As always, thank you for reading :) and have a good weekend! xxx

    Jennifer looks lovely. It reminds me a bit of fish scales.
