Blue Mondays with Shimmer Polish Liana

So I hadn't ever won anything. Like a contest or the lotto or really even gambling. I'm just not lucky that way. But recently, I was the unexpected and very happy winner of a Shimmer Polish raffle! For winning, I got to select two polishes of my choice for a penny. One of my picks was, of course, a beautiful blue glitter bomb, Liana. All of Shimmer Polish's lacquers are named after women and I think it gives them character. 

To start off my manicure, I opted for one of my favorite blues -- Maybelline Color Show Sapphire Siren. This is a total steal and I bought mine at Meijer (a midwest superstore) but I've seen this line at a bunch of different places. I think this was $2.99. No more than $3.99. It's a gorgeous blue creme with the best consistency. Here is Sapphire Siren:

And here is Shimmer Polish Liana:

And here is only ONE coat of Liana over Sapphire Siren. Can you believe the coverage?!?

All photos were taken in artificial light, without flash. I used one coat of Poshe fast dry topcoat to finish everything off.

Winning my polishes was a great way to be introduced to the Shimmer Polish line. They are on the expensive side of the indie scale (retailing for $12.00 on Etsy, plus $2.00 shipping) but after trying them out I will definitely purchase from Shimmer Polish in the future. The coverage is amazing, the lacquer jam packed with glitter, but not goopy. 

You can purchase Shimmer Polish on Etsy. Remember to check out the Shimmer Polish blog and Facebook page while you are cruising the internets!
