A few of my reviews have fallen behind (seems to be story of my life) but my grandfather passed away last weekend and I needed a little time off. I have a little catching up to do, so you’ll see more posts coming out this week. To get back into things, I have the Shimmer Me Box January 2018.
The constant makers in the Shimmer Me Box are Colors by Llarowe, Tux Polish and Native War Paints. Each month will have a guest maker, and the January 2018 guest maker is Colores de Carol!
The Shimmer Me Box January 2018 theme is Winter Wonderland. We have 2 thermals, a Wintery blue and a deep vampy shade all with different elements, but one thing in common: SHIMMER!
Let’s take a look!
Colores de Carol – Ice Queen
Colores de Carol is this month’s guest maker and she brought us a gorgeous turquoise creme with gold shimmer and a fairly subtle scattered holographic. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Colors By Llarowe – Frozen Village
Colors by Llarowe brings us a thermal named Frozen Village. This is a purple (when cold) to hot pink (when warm) with blue and pink shimmer flecks mixed in. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Native War Paints – A Cold Day in Texas
Native War Paints also brought us a thermal with A Cold Day In Texas! This is a dusty blue (when cold) to light nude (when warm) with bronze and blue flakes, gold shimmer and scattered holographic. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Tux Polish – Above the Mountains
Tux Polish brings us a deeper shade with Above The Mountains! This is a black holo jelly base with red shimmer, scattered holographic and blue micro flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Shimmer Me Box January 2018 Overview
All 4 of these shades applied beautifully and I loved the addition of 2 thermals to the box. I’m noticing thermals making a comeback lately and I kind of love it. Not that they ever entirely went away – but the request for them had died down quite a bit over the last couple years. In the past 6 months I have seen more and more come out.
