El Corazón ~ Japanese Silk 423/939 and 423/940

El Corazón ~ Japanese Silk 423/939 and 423/940
Purple and blue shimmer

I got a handful of El Corazón polishes that I was eager to try out. I decided to try two at a time. The first two are 423/939, which is purple and 423/940, which is blue.

The polishes are both easy to apply but this entire series of Japanese Silk polishes are very prone to brush strokes. I don’t mind that at all, so it’s no big deal for me.

I used two coats for full coverage and the drying time is good. The blue smells really weird, and I can’t remember I’ve had any other El Corazón that smells like that. It’s odd, isn’t it?!

The white polish on the two middle fingers is also an El Corazón, namely M&S-172, which I often use for nail art that includes white.

Here are the three polishes:

I like dots and stripes! How about you?

Oh! And somebody thinks that this humble blog is really good, take a look:

  1. These are gorgeous polishes and I love the mani :-D

    Oh congrats on that - well done :-D

  2. Very pretty! Oh I like dots and stripes!

  3. So beautiful...where do you get this polish brands from?

  4. My guess is the blue polish contains cobalt pigment, which contains sulphur, making it smell odd. :-)

    1. That sounds like a valid explanation, thank you so much for that :)
