PCOS Awareness with Shimmer Strength!

September is PCOS Awareness Month and I could think of no better polish to create a manicure with than Shimmer Strength. Donations are made to support PCOS with the sale of each Shimmer Strength polish. The beautiful teal glitter coordinates perfectly with the ribbon supporting PCOS awareness. I just love the the motto of "Fight Like a Girl!"...

For the manicure I used Barielle Ocean Breeze as my base. I topped the whole thing with Shimmer Strength and then stamped the ribbon pattern using Essence Stamp Me! White and Bundle Monster plate BM-321...

Shimmer Strength is a mix of small teal, silver and holo glitter as well as some larger silver hex and even a few hearts. Since there are so few hearts, I did have to 'fish' it out for the manicure, but personally I like that it is not overflowing with the heart glitter. I prefer the smaller glitter that I can just brush on and I'm willing to 'fish' for the larger pieces to place as accents. The silver hex and hearts do seem to have an ever so slight curl to them. The glitter is easy to apply and as most Shimmer polishes it is loaded with glitter in each brush stroke. This is just one coat plus top coat over my base...

As you can see it has lots of micro glitter. Although I have not tried it on a full manicure yet, I think you can reach full opacity with using Strength alone in about 3 coats.
