Wheel Q1: Yellow to Orange Shimmers

I didn't have enough of either yellow or orange unswatched shimmers to fill a whole nail wheel, so I put them together onto one. Maybe I should have started a yellow wheel and an orange wheel and left blank tips for new acquistions, but too late now.

Detail pics, because not all shimmers are alike. This wheel has everything from barely a shimmer at all to old school-style frosts to glass flecks.

  3. I really don't have enough of these colours, and they are really pretty. I think I own 1 yellow and 2 oranges! xxx

  4. wow, some collection ;-)
    i love #1 and "2, they look awesome :-D

  5. I started to make my wheels, too. I hope you don't mind if I link your blog when I'll post them. If you do mind please let me know and I will usemy wheels for personal purpose only :)

  6. Varnish Vixen, there do seem to be a lot of oranges in the summer collections.

    MariaAndrea, I'm not sure I have that one, though I haven't swatched all my Sinful glitters yet.

    Gemx, I was surprised I had so many since I tend to not like yellows and oranges on me.

    Nail crazy, thanks; those two are eye catching for sure!

    Olivia, thanks!

    theallamenta, of course it's fine to link! I appreciate you thinking to do so. :)
