Monroe is a New Release from Shimmer Polish

I just had to place an order immediately when I read that Cindy at Shimmer Polish had created NEW glitter polishes this week.  Of course it was like...OK I want them all...BUT my wallet wouldn't let me do that.  I then thought I would go dark and vampy.  I looked at the darkest new colors Cindy had created. 

I knew at once I had to get Marilyn.  You probably think I got Marilyn thinking of Marilyn Monroe.  I didn't!  I purchased this gorgeous red glittered polish in memory of my first and best friend.  Her name was Marilyn Suzanne.  Her family called her Suzie.  She became my best friend at once.  We were just five years old.  I can still see her great big beautiful blue eyes and blonde hair.  It's just an image I will always carry, a beautiful memory of my best friend.

Marilyn is a Vampy Burgundy Red Polish with fine microglitter.  She was such a joy to work with.  I layered her over Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine by OPI.  I was really elated on how this swatch turned out. 

It is gorgeous!!  I ♥ Marilyn!

As you read and look at my swatches of Marilyn take a few moments to remember your first BFF and how you met.  It will warm your heart.

 Let's first take a look at Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine by OPI.

The back view looks like the front view because he is so dark.

 I hope you love her as much as I do.

Her beauty is classy and not in your face glitter!

 She is in fact, a gorgeous Marilyn!

So, have you have you thought of your first and best friend?  I hope you have beautiful memories and warm your heart like mine to do me.
