Shimmer Nichole for 4th of July!

The count down to 4th of July has begun and I hope to fill the next few days with themed posts, assuming my brain doesn't melt from the heat wave that has hit Seattle. Today's post featured the gorgeous Shimmer Nichole which is truly a 4th of July glitter bomb in a bottle. It was sent to me for review quite a while ago, but I was saving it just for this special occasion...

Naturally Shimmer Nichole needed to be paired up with some Nicole by OPI shades if for no other reason, but the name. The base shades used here are Nicole by OPI Challenge Red-y (red), Others Pale by Kim-Parison (off white), I Sea You and Raise You (blue).

I added the stars from Bundle Monster plate BM21 using Essence Stampy White...

Shimmer Nichole is a clear base packed with red, silver, blue and holographic glitter. Even with no stamping it can easily create a fun holiday manicure. I especially love it over white as it allows the red and blue glitter to really pop. The formula is what I have come to expect from Shimmer polishes, easy to apply with great distribution of glitter in each brush stroke. I used two coats for this swatch along with a top coat...

  1. Just too fun! I've been racking my brain for what to do on the Red White and Blue mani front =/.

  2. @Freshie, still a few days to decide! I'm sure you'll come up with something wonderful :)
