Glimmer by Erica - Green with Envy & 50 Shades of No Gray

Here are two recent mani's I wore, both featuring Glimmer by Erica polishes.  

First up is a sideways rainbow gradient.  I used Ulta3 polishes Mango Mayhem, Strawberry Sundae, Blue Heaven, Tahitian Lime and Frangipani, all sponged on over a base of Lily White.  

I then added a layer of Glimmer by Erica - 50 Shades of No Gray, which is a mix of black, white and translucent white hexes in two sizes and well as black and white hearts.  I didn't have to fish out the hearts and I got two white ones on my left hand, and in a very rare right hand shot below you can see two black and one white heart.  This polish also has a fine holographic shimmer to it, which is just perfect over a gradient like this.

I must have been feeling very patriotic this day when I decided to go with green and gold nails.  The base is Essie Good as Gold and the green glitter is Glimmer by Erica - Green with Envy.

Green with Envy has different shapes and sizes of green and gold polish as well as some holo diamonds.

Both these glitters were a dream to apply and all glitter pieces were smooth and flat.  50 Shades of No Gray is definitely a layering polish, whereas you could probably get Green with Envy opaque on it's own.  I used one wiped coats of 50 Shades and one dabbled coat of Green with Envy.

Glimmer by Erica polishes are available from her Etsy store.
