Colores de Carol new shades! Blueberry Mango Sorbet, Inner Princess and Blizzard

Hi! I'm here again to share more of Carolina's creations with you! I have another collection (Girls Night Out), but I swatched with my left hand and all the pics looks so awkward!! Now that my nails of the swatching hand grew a little, I will re-swatch them!!
But now let's see this three beautiful new colors!

Blizzard has silver and gold glitter in a jelly white base. I used only one coat over Sation Strumming my Nails (one coater!!). I wanted a subtle effect, but you can get full opacity and more glitter with two medium coats. Some of the gold glitter is round!!!

Inner Princess has a mix of pastel glitter and small aqua stars in a white jelly base. Again, I used only one coat over white, the glitter pay off was great as you can see and bonus: no fishing for the stars was necessary!!

Blueberry Mango Sorbet has a very original mix of small periwinkle hexagons and orange squares in a nude/yellow jelly base. I used one coat over OPI My Vampire is a Buff (from the Eurocentrale collection).

I'm loving these colors!!! My favorite is Blizzard... which one is yours?
You can find Colores de Carol nail polishes at for $9 each full size. But she was so kind to offer me a code to share with you!! You can use POLISHLAND at checkout for a 10% off!!
Thanks for reading!!

Colores de Carol first nail polish collection!

I know, I haven't posted in so long!!!! The store and life had me busy all day... but today I have a very exciting collection to show you!
My dear and talented friend Carolina from Colores de Carol has released her first nail polish collection! If you follow Carolina and are familiar with her nail art, you already know she has really good taste combining colors... she translated her talent to her collection and the result was six beautiful shades.
Let's see them!

Hero in Disguise is a light gray jelly with yellow and red matte glitter and black stars. How original is this combo? And it looks so nice and even delicate on the nails... I used three coats for the pictures and top coat.

It's Raining Hearts has big matte red, pink and white hearts, pink microglitter and red dots in a shimmery clear base. I had to fish the hearts a little (like all the polishes with big glitters I have), so I can't say a number of coats... I applied one coat and then a fish some hearts until I was happy with the result! I used it over skittles so you can see different combinations! From left to right: Jo' Mina, Cameo, Noble, Nomad (all from Illamasqua)

Wet Paint is a super fun top coat with black matte glitter, white, light blue and pink matte squares in a clear base. It also has multicolor microglitter! I used two coats over Chanel April for the pictures

Best Polish Friends Forever (BPFF) is a beautiful light blue jelly with white, blue, light blue and fuchsia glitters in different shapes and sizes. I used three coats alone but of course you can wear it over a matching opaque creme if you don't want any visible nail line. I think it looks very delicate and pretty on its own!

I Smell Spring is a light pastel yellow jelly with multicolor glitters. The base color is like Illamasqua Load, and it was my favorite!!! I used three coats alone for the pictures and I LOVED IT!

Cupcake Fantasy is a very very pale pink/lavender jelly with different multicolor small glitters. I need to apologize for this pictures, I swatched all the previous five, then I had to go to pick my kid up from daycare... and I broke a nail in my way back!! Tragedy!!!! So I filed them all down and this picture are with super short nail :-( Sorry for that, I will reswatch it when my nail grow again booo

Overall, I'm very happy with this new collection, the colors are soft but fun and some are even a little edgy!
You can find all her creations at and she will be releasing a new collection on February 9th!!! You can follow Carolina on twitter and instagram to have all the updates @coloresdecarol and also her FB page

Congratulations Carolina for this first great collection!!!!
