El Corazón Matte & Shine Effect ~ #167 & #166



El Corazón Matte & Shine Effect ~ #167 & #166
Pink and mint matte shiny

I knew I had to have a successful mani after yesterday’s fail so I looked through my new El Corazóns. I chose a pink and a mint from the new collection “Matte & Shiny Effect”. It intrigues me how it can be both matte and shiny at the same time, so I had to try them to see for myself!

I started out with two coats of #167, the pink one. The formula is good and easy to work with and it dries fast. I used two coats. Then I grabbed a striper and made stripes with #166, the mint one. It has great coverage so I didn’t have to go over the stripes again with the striper; once was enough.

And here’s what it looks like without the topcoat:

  
Matte and Shiny – how about that!!


I applied topcoat because I like it better that way. It made the colours come more together; take a look at the final mani here.


It’s funny. The mint looks green in the bottle, but on the pink it looks blue. Freaky deaky!


Yes! That’s how I wanted it! 
The bottles:


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Matte & Shiny
Overall impression: I’ll definitely check out more from this collection
Buy again: Yes!
