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 😀

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: 121 – Matte Effect

Happy Friday!

It’s quite difficult to find a good matte nail polish. I’ve tried some good ones but I’ve also discovered that most matte polishes tend to leave brush strokes. This is 121 by El Corazon. After one coat I knew it needed a second one for full coverage. I thought that it’ll definitely get streaky, but no: not at all. Completely smooth in 2 coats! Oh and on a side note… look at that bottle: matte! Such a nice touch 😀el corazon 121 1For my accent nail I used a sponge and Fireworks Galaxy (available at my shop) to add a bit of color and topped it with one coat of matte top coat.el corazon 121El Corazon polishes are available at their website and at Hypnotic Polish.

Have a great weekend! :*
