WOW! Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish is Amazing

Hi everyone, a couple weeks ago I saw a demo on the Creative Expressions Facebook page showing the new Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish.

WOW, these are awesome! the short demo had me hooked and I went searching for them straight away!

You can find the full set below.

These pots of shimmer polish change colour, from white to black cardstock, it’s so cool to watch and very easy to use.

The finish they give is a smooth beautiful shine to your cardstock.

You can apply the polish with the sponge attached, or your finger, cloth, brush, and spatula.

They look wonderful brushed over an embossed piece of cardstock, or used to colour a whole piece of card and then die cut to make matching embellishments.

The colours are so rich and vibrant and totally unexpected when you first apply them to the cardstock.

The look is more grungy and would work great for masculine cards and Halloween themed projects.

Check out my excitement when I use these in my tutorial below.
