Glimmer by Erica Muy Caliente

Nothing to get you through that middle of the week slump like a little indie glitter, am I right? I've got a red hot beauty to show you today: Glimmer by Erica Muy Caliente! It's a clear base with different shapes and sizes of red, orange and yellow glitter. Muy Caliente, by the way, is Spanish for "very hot." See, I actually retained some stuff from my 10(!) years of taking Spanish in school! ;)

I was going for a fiery kind of look, so I layered two coats of Muy Caliente over OPI An Affair In Red Square. I'm very happy with how it turned out! These two polishes are made for each other!





Next time around I think I'll try Muy Caliente over a contrasting base color, because I'm curious to see how it makes all the colors pop. But I think this polish would look great over just about anything! The formula is excellent--no fishing or placing necessary. One of the things I love about Erica's glitters is they have a lot of complexity to them but all of the different shapes and colors come together effortlessly.

Muy Caliente is lots of fun and I think it's pretty sexy too! I love my blues and greens, but a good, glittery red makes me feel like I can conquer the world! ;)

You can buy Glimmer by Erica from Erica's Etsy shop. In addition to fabulous polishes like Muy Caliente, she also just released a Rainbow Brite-inspired collection that looks absolutely amazing!
