Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

 I recently ordered a bunch of Shimmer polishes from Etsy here.  I couldn't take it any longer, seeing such pretty pictures of them on other blogs!  All the glitter!  All the shimmer!  I love.
 This is two coats of Alice over two coats of Orly Shine.  I used Gelous and Dior top coat over that, but it was not smooth yet.  I ended up taking off this mani after a few hours because my right thumb got messed up and I was frustrated with a few other little things, but I'm definitely going to be trying Alice again in the future.  I don't know why, but I often end up disliking glitters over foils.  It's something to do with the appearance of texture.
The stars in Alice are a bit of a nuisance to me.  I had them on both my thumbs and the index finger you see here.  They are very pronounced and hard to smooth out with top coat.  I LOVE stars in general, but in this polish, I would prefer it without.  Overall, an extremely blingy and beautiful polish that I'm sure to love when I get it on in a better combination.  What's your favorite Shimmer polish?

I don't own any Shimmer polishes (only indies I have are Hare and old Lynnderella) but this one looks pretty. Too bad you weren't really happy with it, hopefully a different base color will help change your appreciation of it :)

This looks gorgeous! It's a shame that it was so annoying, I hate it when I spend ages on a manicure only to take it off because I bumped one of the nails or something equally annoying! Haha

I love color, beauty, creativity, animals, and being care-free. I'm not care-free, in reality, but would like to think it's an attainable state of being! I do like to bend the rules when it serves a greater purpose and I'm all about being authentic. Here I am, take me or leave me! I suppose I'd call myself a sensitive soul. I think I feel things more deeply and ponder things more thoroughly than your average bear.
