El Corazón ~ 423/937 from the Japanese Silk series

El Corazón ~ 423/937 from the Japanese Silk series
Orange pearly shimmer

I’m tired of darkness and cold winter, so today I’m having spring time on my nails.

I used 423/937 from El Corazón, a pearly shimmery orange for my pinkie and my pointer (and my thumb that you cannot see). The formula is easy to work with and I used two coats for full coverage. The polish is prone to brush strokes, but I don’t mind that.

I used a white El Corazón (m&s-172) as the base for my tulip water decals. I bought the decals of Aliexpress. These are fairly thick and didn’t lay completely down on the nails before I topcoated them. It’s the first time I experience that!

Here’s my final mani including topcoat:

Yes, that’s the spring-y feeling I wanted!

Pearly finishes aren’t my favourites, but I quite like this polish. It looks way more grandma-ish in the bottle than on the nails, haha!

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Pearly shimmer
Overall impression: Nice colour and formula
Buy again: Yes
