El Corazon: Kir Royal (623/624) – Nail Party Collection

Hi beauties!

Guess what? I’ve been stamping again! For this mani I used Kir Royal from the Nail Party Collection by El Corazon as my base color:el corazon - 623 624 kir royal1This one has, as with the other polishes from this collection, a perfect formula. Two easy coats will give you a full coverage finish. For the stamping design I used stamping plate 22 from the Explorer Collection by MoYou and Cloud Nine by Color Club. Did you know that Color Club’s halo hues polishes are great for stamping? And of course I topped this with one coat of HK Girl top coat by Glisten & Glow. el corazon - 623 624 kir royal - color club cloud nineNext step… try the reversed stamping technique! Wish me luck đŸ˜‰

El Corazon: Blackberry Caipirinha (423/621) – Nail Party Collection

Woop woop! A brand new collection by El Corazon has launched! The Nail Party Collection consists of 10 polishes. Here’s a photo that I found at the El Corazon blog:
Đ¡Đ½Đ¸Đ¼Đ¾Đº12The one that got my immediate attention as soon as I saw a photo is Blackberry Caipirinha (423/621), the top right one in the photo above. Such a unique shade! el corazon - blackberry caiprinha2I’ll try my best to describe it as accurate as possible. To me this is a purple toned blue with gorgeous green shimmer running throughout. It’s kind of color shifting between purple and blue. Very unique in my opinion. The formula is a breeze to work with. Two flawless coats for full coverage and one coat of top coat for a long lasting finish. All polishes that I’ve tried from the active bio gel line are extremely glossy by their selves so fro that reason you don’t really need a top coat. el corazon - blackberry caiprinha1One more… just because it’s so gorgeous!el corazon - blackberry caiprinhaStay tuned to see more of this collection! đŸ˜‰

El Corazon: 167 – Matte Effect

As you might have noticed I became a huge fan of the Russian brand El Corazon in a short time. It started the minute Maria, the founder of Hypnotic Polish, stocked them at her shop. I simply love everything about them. The uniquely shaped bottles which hold 16ml of product for a friendly price. And of course the fantastic formula. Most collections contain formaldehyde as a strengthening agent, but they are free of toluene and DBP. The one I’m showing you today is 5free đŸ˜€

Today I have another polish from their Matte Effect Collection to show you. Pink! This is two easy coats of number 167, no top coat:el corazon - 167 1As you can see it’s not pure matte due to the shimmery particles. I’d call it a satin finish. This is very easy to work with. No streaking or patchiness. Just lovely! The triangles are from Hypnotic Polish which can be found here.el corazon - 167What do you think of this hot pink matte polish?

Thanks for stopping by! :*

El Corazon: 126 – Matte Effect

Happy Valentines Day lovelies!

Here’s a look at my super bright red matte nails:el corazon - 126 - bm303 bm02 1This is a serious pigmented red! I applied two coats, no top coat here. Loving how insanely bright this is! And since it’s Valentines Day I added some kisses on the nail of my ring finger. For that I used Bundle Monster stamping plates BM303 and BM02 plus white stamping polish by Konad. el corazon - 126 - bm303 bm02

El Corazon: Lepidolite 423/464 – Gemstones Collection

Hi lovelies!

For those of you who love light (pastel) colors this Spring you might find Lepidolite (423/464) form El Corazon interesting. el corazon - lepidolite 423-464 gemstones 1Lepidolite is part of the Gemstones Collection, hence the name đŸ™‚ It’s a very flattering lilac shade that has holographic particles scattered throughout. The formula is slightly different than the other Corazon’s that I have. This one has a sort of pearly finish to it. I’m not the biggest fan of pearl finishes because they often appear streaky. This one is an exception though. The holo particles totally make up for it. And the streaky ness is minimal. The first coat went on sheer but it can be build up to full coverage in two to three coats, depending on application. I needed three thin coats to cover my free edge.

The photo’s were taken in natural daylight. In direct sunlight or bright light you can see the rainbow-ness of the holo particles. Very pretty! What do you think of Lepidolite?el corazon - lepidolite 423-464 gemstones

El Corazon: Nymph 423/507 – Large Hologram Collection

You’ve probably already seen some polishes from the Large Hologram Collection by El Corazon here on the blog. Today I have a green one to show you. Green, you ask? Yes! This is the kind of hue that my pale skin seems to appreciate. Here’s Nymph:el corazon - 423-507 nymph1First off all, these pics were taken in natural daylight, no sun! Imagine how all the scattered holographic particles would look when the sun hits it!
This is a jelly base and I needed three thin coats for an opaque finish. I think you can get away with just two coats when you have shorter nails. No top coat people, no top coat! This is incredibly glossy all by itself. I’m a fan of this collection. el corazon - 423-507 Nymph

El Corazon: 423/505 Galaxy – Large Hologram

Hi beauties!

The Large Hologram Collection of the Active Bio-Gel range by El Corazon consists of many different colors of polishes that all have a scattered holographic finish. Today I have Galaxy (423/505) to show you:el corazon - 423 505 galaxy1This lovely hue of purple has a jelly base and is packed with holographic particles. I used three coats plus top coat. The polishes that I’ve tried from the Active Bio Gel range all have an amazing formula. The application is a breeze and they have a super shiny finish. So shiny that you don’t need a top coat for a glossy finish. Even when the holo particles are medium sized they don’t feel or appear textured. Great, right?!el corazon - 423 505 galaxyHave you tried El Corazon polishes yet? You can find them at their website and at Hypnotic Polish.
