El Corazón ~ 423/472 Gemstones: Charoite



El Corazón ~ 423/472 Gemstones: Charoite
Lilac with holo flakies and shimmer

It’s not a secret that I am a fan of El Corazón polishes, I think it’s a great brand! I love the quality and the range of colours and finishes. Today I’m going to show you a lilac polish from the Gemstones collection.

The formula is good and easy to work with. I was satisfied after two coats, but I applied a third for the camera. Two coats would have been enough if I wasn’t a blogger with a camera that picks up details unnoticed by the human eye. But hey, I *am* a blogger, and I *do* have a camera that picks up things I don’t want it to pick up, so three coats it was. The drying time is good.

Take a look at how pretty it is in the sunshine. Three coats and no topcoat:


I love the glisten and the glow!


Here’s a picture taken in low lights. It’s still sparkling!


I made two purple lines in the middle of my nails with Stargazer’s #157. Then I added a glittery down the middle; I used Pahlish’s The Dust Witch. It’s a glitter topper in orange, purple, green and gold. It is from October 2013 and was only sold as part of a set of two polishes: The Dark Carnival Duo. I bought it in a blog sale recently, yay! Anyway I finished it off with a layer of topcoat, and here’s my final mani:


Low light picture. The glitter is pretty discrete, but I love it when it sparkles.


Here are the three polishes I used:


I’m really pleased with this. Do you like it?


Number of coats: 3

  2. Hrmpfff, that's weird, this is the third time I tried, I even went to other blogs in between, and didn't experience any problems. The two first times I couldn't see any photos, this time at least one LOL - but it looks very pretty with the stripes!
