Shimmer Irene, Taylor, Carmen, Amy and Marilyn

This is the second set of Shimmer Nail Polishes that cannot be layered look just right by themselves and don't need to be layered. For the first set click here.  All of these are two-coaters, except for Irene (shown first). This is a champagne gold that has a classy look to it.  I think I managed to capture its beauty in these pictures.  Taylor is a jelly-esque pink with red undertones.  It is chic and it has a city vibe to it.  The blue glitters come out to play in the dimmest lights.  Carmen is a stunning orange gold.  It is by far the best one, formula-wise, out of all the Shimmers; and possibly out of all the 2-coater glitters I've tried.  I wasn't sure what to expect from just looking at the bottle, because the color is kind of flashy --too loud! I thought-- but I was instantly in love with it once it was on my nails.  Amy is one of those that "grows on you" kind of colors.  I wasn't instantly attracted to it, and I could not understand what was it all about.  Perhaps there was too much going on.  However, after seeing it layered, and seeing this post, I sort of got it.  Lastly, Marilyn, is a hot as its name.  This red glitter is juicy and sophisticated.  After about two coats of topcoat, it looks like a jelly.  The glitters in it are a darkened red, which gives it the depth it needs.  I've used Marilyn before as a base color for another glittery Shimmer, click here to see it.  These lovelies are great for those who prefer glitters that are stand-alone, and don't like to do lots of layering.  They were all pretty amazing, but if I had to pick one, I'd pick Carmen :)
