Coolcos ~ 02



Coolcos ~ 02
Dark bottle green with lighter green shimmer

My boyfriend decided to buy me some polishes last time we were in the mall together. He fell for this deep green shimmer and actually bought it even though I had said it would probably be too dark for me.

Many of you have probably not even heard about Coolcos. It’s a relatively new Danish brand, which produces both polishes and other sorts of makeup. They have quite a large range of polishes, all of which have in common that they smell really weird.

Anyway, back to this particular polish. The formula is really good and it only takes one coat to achieve full opacity. Drying time is average.

And I am really glad that he bought this one, even though I said no. It’s really pretty. This, sweet girls, is one coat, and no topcoat:


How’s that for a pretty green?


This shimmer makes this really special. I think I’ll try and slip in a couple of mixing balls – that way I hope to mix some more of that delicious shimmer that’s sticking to the insides of the bottle!


I decided to pair it up with a flakie from Up Colors called “Banho de mar!”. I got that at a polish swapping event I joined. We were 7 girls and it was great fun! You should try it if you ever get the chance.
Anyway, I applied one coat over the dark green and topped it with a layer of topcoat, and here’s the final result:


I love the blue and green flakies over the dark green!


Oh yes, I like this a lot! Later that day we went outside and painted the back door in the yard, and then that lovely mani was ruined. Oh well… Life!


Number of coats: 1
Drying time: Average
Finish: Fantastic shimmer polish
Overall impression: I love that it’s a one coater and and that the shimmer isn’t shy. The smell is weird, but that’s a thing I can easily live with.
Buy again: Yes

  1. OH I like the beautiful shimmer in it, and it's even more beautiful with the flakies.
    I have 2-3 Cool-cos, I think they smell rather bad...

    1. The smell isn't exactly like roses, I don't understand why the smell of polish is so different from brand to brand :)
