Shimmer Polish Fanny

{ provided for review } 

I had some pretty big expectations going into my first Shimmer Polish, and you know what it's like when you're all excited about something and you try to talk yourself down and prepare for disappointment...and then you didn't need to do that because the thing ends up being all kinds of awesome?! Welcome to Shimmer Polish Fanny.

Like many of the Shimmer blends, Fanny is a complicated lady. Predominantly pink and purple, it also has highlights of, I think, red and maybe light blue and...other things...honestly, I can't even. It's all just glittering away up in there and looking fabulous--and being all the more so for its fantastic formula because this is just one coat of over OPI We'll Always Have Paris. Honestly, just the one. And there's no trick to applying it either; it brushes on smooth and even.

I really couldn't tell you how many different little pieces of awesome go into making up Shimmer Polish Fanny because it's so gorgeously sparkly that I don't know what's part of the mix and what's leaning into the deep, deep base, and what's reflecting from around the room, and seriously, it's just amazing. I do know there are some teeny little rosy pink squares, which I ♥ forever.

Shimmer Polish Fanny looks like you've just pressed your wet nails into a jar of crushed gemstones. If wine and jewels could have a baby, this is what it would be. So yeah, I didn't need to worry about having my expectations too high; Fanny really is just that gorgeous.
