Shimmer - Marilyn

Shimmer Marilyn is slightly different to the other Shimmer polishes in that it has a much richer tinted base allowing it to easily be worn on it's own rather than as a layering polish.  Marilyn is a dark burgundy jelly with red and crimson micro glitter.  I applied two coats of top coat to ensure the fine glitters were glassy smooth.

For this mani I paired Marilyn with two accent fingers that were painted with Bourjois Rose Lounge and then stamped and sponged with Kleancolor Metallic red.  The butterfly stamps were off BM307, I just stamped individual butterflies so I could choose the placement and have them a bit more spread out than the original stamp design.

Shimmer polishes are available from Cindy at the Shimmer Polishes site
