Shimmer Maria Scalloped...

I've had a wonderful two days off work enjoying the sunshine and catching up on swatching. I'll even deny that at some point on Tuesday I was so frustrated with my cameras (yes, multiple cameras) that I was ready to toss them out the window. Luckily, we worked out our disagreement on Wednesday and I was able to get more swatching done. In the process of all that swatching, I got to play with the lovely Shimmer Maria and I couldn't help the urge to dress her up a bit with stamping...

I layered Shimmer Maria over Zoya Rocky from the Stunning summer collection. I know I say this a lot, but trust me, swatches coming soon ;). The scalloped pattern comes from Pueen plate Pueen32 which I stamped using Wet 'n Wild White Creme. It is not the best white for stamping, but I like to use it when I want a soft gentle white rather than a stark and bright white. This mani reminds me of cute cafe curtains...

Shimmer Maria is a gorgeous mix of blue glitter in a clear base. I've stopped trying to analyze the makeup of Cindy's gorgeous creations because I'm pretty sure it is impossible. Needless to say, I'm quite crazy about them and Maria is no exception. This is one generous coat over Zoya Rocky. It applies very easily with good glitter coverage. Swatches are with a top coat...

I love all the small glitter in this mix as it gives great coverage...
