Hi! It's Shimmer time again!!
I have the seductive Vanessa for you today, She has a clear base with silver and slate gray glitters as the primary colours. Of course there's also red, blue, and even some green glitters thrown in there!
As always with Shimmer Polishes, I had no issues with application at all and the glitters stayed on nicely without snatching at stuff or without curling. I used three coats of Vanessa on my middle and ring finger - as you can see, she covers very well on her own.
The polishes I used for the gradient are: Catrice Caught on the Red Carpet, Burgundy Kiss by Maybelline, and Black Passion from Only You.
I created a vampy gradient on my index finger and pinky because I thought the red and black would match great with Vanessa. I love how this gradient turned out, so sexy! It was a total pain to clean it up though, red stains everywhere in my cuticles!
That's really all there is to this design. Lots of patience and a sponge :D
I also took a macro polish brush shot!
And here's a close-up of Vanessa on my nails (three coats with top coat):
