Shimmer Karen Nail Art and Swatches...

I have a some funky nail art to show you today, featuring the lovely Shimmer Karen glitter. There is just something about taking a sweet pink/lavender glitter and going a bit wild with it. What better way to go wild than by creating a pink glittery zebra mixed mani?...

Index and middle fingers: Two coats of Shimmer Karen over China Glaze Astro-Hot base, stamped with Cheeky CH2 and Essence Stampy Black.
Ring finger: Karen brushed gradient over Wet 'n Wild Black Creme
Thumb and pinkie fingers: Two coats of Karen over Black Creme...

I never realized just how much this particular zebra pattern looks like a rib cage, but now it is all I see when I look a it. Wouldn't it be fun for a skeleton mani on halloween? Hmm...

Shimmer Karen is a mix of pink, lavender, silver and holographic glitter in various sizes. I chose to layer it over the metallic holo China Glaze Astro-Hot. The polish applies easily and gives a good serving of glitter with each brush stroke. I used two coats for extra sparkle, but it looks great at just one coat as well. Swatches are with a top coat...

Lots of glittery goodness...
