I am still avoiding my seventh and final pink week post,in case you were wondering.
I just can't bring myself to finish it.I'm also a little disturbed because most of the pinks I've featured are in the same colour family.Apparently, fuchsia is my preferred shade of pink.
I am so predictable.
I recently found the latest SH Xtreme Wear collection of glitters,shimmers,and foils at the drugstore. Initially I only purchased 4,but I decided to purchase 2 more on a separate visit.
The words impulse control do not exist in my world ;P
Aaand here they are!
Medium indigo shimmer base with regular and bar-shaped holo glitter *phew*
In a word:Amazing! It looks like more of a royal blue in the pictures,but it's indigo.What I love about this polish is the visibility of the glitter.In spite of the opacity of the base,the glitter rests above it instead of being covered completely.And let's be honest,who in their right mind would want cover up glitter?
Cool red shimmer with regular and bar-shaped holo glitter
Cherry Punch is basically the red cousin of Cosmic Blue. If not for the holo glitter,I would have passed by it completely.It's a good thing I'm a sucka for sparkles.
Dusty purple shimmer with regular and bar-shaped holo glitter.
Sally Hansen must have had buckets of spare glitter lying around!This is the third polish of four using the stuff.I'm not complaining though,because this is beautiful!The shimmer base matches one of my Overall Beauty mineral eyeshadows (Metal Rose) perfectly!As Niki would say,this is made of win!
Lilac-mauve with green shimmer
That's right,green shimmer! This is another one I judged solely based on its initial appearance.Most of the colours in this collection are jewel-toned,so in comparison a dusty mauve is kind of "meh".Then I took a good look at it and saw the green shimmer particles.That was enough to sell me.This is one of my favourites! It's work appropriate,yet flashy at the same time.My pictures do not do it justice.
