DIY Hard Nails – Shimmery Gel Polishes

DIY Hard Nails - Shimmer Gel Polishes

Who doesn’t love a great shimmer polish?! These four beauties are from the DIY Hard Nails line of gel polishes, which continues to impress me.  Previously I have posted about some of the amazing color changing and glitter polishes that they have available – you can read about those here.   Each of these swatches show three coats of color.

BTW, if you’re wondering why I’ve used a different pose for this brand of polish it’s because the square bottle shape makes it hard for me to hold them like I normally would.  My little pinky finger just doesn’t want to cooperate.  LOL  Anyway… onto the colors.

Pink Crystal is probably my favorite of all of the shimmers because it’s so complex.  You can see tiny flecks of different shades of pink and it seems to just glow in the light.  It’s really very stunning.

Glowing Lavender is a shimmery pink-ish purple (or is it purple-ish pink?).  It’s another stunner, and is a perfect summer shade.

Blue Velvet is a dark blue shimmer gel polish.  My camera didn’t really pick up on it much, but the shimmer is a bit duochrome in nature because you can see blue and/or purple shimmer depending on the light.

Metallica has a metallic finish that reminds me of pewter.  This one does have some shimmery qualities, but it’s actually more of a frosty finish since it will show brushstrokes if you’re not careful with your application.

  1. Pink Crystal looks fairly unique. I’m certain I don’t have anything like it. :)

    OT – new to gel nails! Love summer white nails. What color or brand would you recommend? The only white I found on your blog was concerning French manicures.

      Hi Ava! Just wanted to let you know that if you type something like “compare white” in the search bar at the top of the page you should find Andrea’s blog post comparing several white polishes and their coverage.

    I would love if you could do a video to better show the shimmer in these polishes! Your video swatches always shows so much more depth!
