Colores de Carol ~ Discovery

Colores de Carol ~ Discovery
Described as a bold pink linear holo with flashes of purple-blue iridescent micro glitter

Discovery is from the ”Pure Imagination” collection and a classic example of how the description doesn’t quite match what I actually see in real life. To me this is a pink linear holographic. It’s not bold in my opinion and I don’t see any signs of microglitter no matter how much I twist and turn my bottle. But never mind, it’s a nice polish nonetheless, it just puzzles me when this happens.

The formula is good, and a bit sheer on the first coat. The second coat builds up to full opacity though so no worries there. The drying time is average.

The stamp I used is from one of my all time favourite stamping plates: BP-L003. There are so many cool designs on that plate! I stamped with a polish my boyfriend gave me a long time ago: Max Factor’s ”Burgundy Crush”. It’s a great polish for stamping because it’s so pigmented.

Here’s the final manicure including a layer of topcoat. The photo is taken with flash.

Here’s Discovery on it’s own; two coats and no topcoat. I took this picture with flash.
