Review - Shimmer Polish Amy and How To Pick Your Undies

Hi Goddesses

A short and sweet this morning.  I am still suffering with my sinuses, and I was woken up by the cat knocking my radio on my head.  Yup, great start.

This is Amy.  She's quite a complex glitter, with an absolute rainbow of colours sitting in a tinted base.   Because of the base, I needed to match her with something similar, so she ended up being layered over OPI Sparrow Me The Drama and Layla Ceramic Effect CE-09.

This became one of my favourite ways to wear these glitters - 2 polishes in differing shades of the same colour.

You can see in some of the close ups exactly how much is going on in this glitter.  There's a lot of lovely on show, but the tinted base does limit your ways to wear this one - you need to stay in the red-orange-pink spectrum.

I thought you might be interested to see how I eventually found the right base for Amy.  You can see here how I swatched her over a whole range of colours, trying to find the right blend of base and glitter.  Underneath the word AMY you can see the tint she carries, which is why I started off a bit more orangey.  In the end though, she definitely wanted to play with Sparrow :)

This polish was sent to me for an honest review.  Enjoy xx
