Swatches and Review: Glimmer by Erica Indie Nail Polishes

Good day blessed ones....

It's a swatch SPAM kind of day!!!
Today I've got Six (6) polishes from Glimmer by Erica to show you guys. 

Here are bottle shots before we begin.

I'd like to mention now that some of these polishes can be worn on their own, because the glitters are dense and would be beautiful if worn alone (in 2-3 coats), but for my swatches, I chose to layer one coat of each polish over other colors to show you how versatile the polishes can be. Swatches are all with Topcoats. 

First up is Don't be a drag, Just be a Queen. 
This is a beautiful red glitter, and I layered it over Matte Elise - belladonna lily.
 I loved this combo so much and I'll have to wear it again.

Next up is Treasure Chest.
A Major Glitter Bomb. Here is one coat layered over Crayola Scented Nail Polish - Green apple. 
I Loved all the multicolored glitters in this one. 
Do you see the glitter-drama in here? It's so beautiful.


Next is Drizzt. It was my favorite in the bottle. Here I layered it over Butter London - Dodgy Barnett, but I think I should have layered it over a purple base. My rationale was that I wanted a base to showcase all the glitters, but I think a slightly more opaque base would make this extra gorgeous.
 Nevertheless though, I still love the glitters in the polish. Hello,  Purple and Red!!


Next is Princess Disco. 
Pink and maroon red glitters. I had to layer this over my currently favorite holo - Butter London - Trustafarian. 
 I love combining Holos and Glitters now.


Next is Ethereal. Turquoise, blue, yellow, black, glitters.
I Layered it over OPI - DS Coronation. 
 The yellow in this makes it pop for me.I think that the yellow in the midst of all the beautiful blues adds something extra to the glitter fest.

Last but certainly not the least is 50 Shades of No Gray. 
Black and white glitter!! Yes, I love this one. It's what Hole Hearted  was supposed to look like in my book. Lol...
There's an additional beautiful shimmer in this one, and also has some transparent glitters. I love the heart glitters as well.
Here I layered ONE coat over Kiko 337 (which is slightly purple but keeps photographing as blue).
And Because I couldn't get enough of this glitter, I chose to layer it over my favorite Gray Polish - OPI - Skull and Glossbones. 
I am so impressed with the heart glitters, and how they came out to play without much "fishing" necessary. 

And that's it for my Glimmer by Erica Swatch Spam. 

Overall Thoughts: 
The glitters were all easy to work with. I didn't have to add thinner to either of them, and each of them had enough glitter to go on the nail in just one coat. 

The smell is not offensive and they smell like regular nail polish. 

Each Polish makes me happy in it's own way, but if I must choose, my favorites are 50 Shades of No Gray, Treasure Chest, and Don't be a Drag, Just be a Queen.
