Wheel T: Snowman Shimmers

Nail wheel

1. Pink perle (4 coats)
2. Yellow perle (3)
3. Green perle (3)
4. Turquoise perle (3)
5. Lilac perle (3)
6. Red violet perle (3)
7. Watermelon shimmer (3)
8. Yellow shimmer (3)
9. Apple green shimmer (3)
10. Teal shimmer (3)
11. Teal shimmer with very scattered silver microglitter (3)
12. Blue shimmer (2)
13. Indigo shimmer (2)
14. Purple shimmer (2)
15. Light blue sparkle shimmer (3)
16. Medium blue sparkle shimmer (3)
17. Turquoise glitter shimmer (3)
18. Silver sparkle shimmer (3)
19. Hot pink sparkle shimmer (3)
20. Red violet glitter shimmer (3)

As is probably clear from the list, I struggled with the descriptions for the finishes on these. They're all shimmery, but some are smooth and some are pearlescent and some are sparkly and some are glittery (but not as glittery as the ones on last week's wheel). I didn't put topcoat on any of them, though some could really use it. Numbers 4, 6, 17, and 20 dry to a satin finish (20 I might go so far as to call matte), and 3 is not especially shiny (though it does have a sort of subtle blue flash, which is interesting).

Once again, I took bottle pictures, even though you've seen all these before in the snowman army post (except the medium blue shimmer, which I found later).

There are still three snowmen that haven't made it onto a wheel; they'll be included in next week's episode of Nail Wheel Wednesday.
