2 gold polishes for you today from the Shimmers I was sent for review.
Although they are both gold, they are very different. Candace is chunky and dirtier, whilst Irene is a little haughty and whiter. Let's start with Candace.
Candace is layered over KIKO 393 and 325, and the bases complement her perfectly, bringing out her grungey tones.
Like a lot of Shimmers, she's not what she appears on the surface, and a closer look reveals fine dustings of fuchsia and navy glitters.
Mostly though, she is gold. The slight tint to the base gives her an ornate feel, and mixed with a green base she looks like a cross between a witch and a crocodile :) I really liked this combo.
Irene is a very different kind of gold, whiter, but still yellow. She also has some other colours mixed in, mainly aqua, and this creates a vintage feel.
The main difference with Irene is that all the particles are the same size, giving her a more uniform appearance. Personally, I think I'd have liked to see this one look a bit more random.
Irene is layered over CG Frostbite.
Gold - ah! Which one do you prefer?
This polish was sent to me for an honest review. Enjoy xx
