Chanel Eastern Light

Hi! today I have a new Chanel Polish to show you. Eastern Light is a limited edition shades that was released with Eastern Lights to celebrate the opening of a new store in Hong Kong. I was really happy that I could find it here in New York too. As fas as I know, they are sold only at boutique counters, so if you could find other LE at your Chanel, these shades are there (or were?) too!

Eastern Lights is a white creme polish. Yes, that's it. But man, what a great white!! It has some blue undertones or I don't know, some Chanel special magic, because it looks great! I used two coats for the pictures and I didn't used top coat.






 I know "it's just a white creme", but I love it! I love white polishes and you say Chanel + Limited Edition + white = must have LOL!!

The only thing I hated was the price, $30 because is a limited edition... *le sigh*....
What do you think? Thank you for reading!!

Colores de Carol Blooming Garden Collection part 2

*product provided for review*

Hi! Today I have the second part of Colors de Carol Spring collection for you!

Anemone has purple holographic squares and white glitter in a clear base. I used it over Misa Lime Love (great shade by the way!) and I loved the contrast!




Rainbow Garden is a multicolor glitter in a clear base. It has mostly hexagonal glitter, but you can find hearts and diamonds too! I have a lot of rainbow glitters but this one is really great, the colors are super bright and I  only needed one coat the get a nice amount of glitter on the nails. I used it over Essie In the Cab-Ana, new favorite shade for summer! I'm using it on my toes right now :-)





 Peony is a white jelly with different shapes of white and pastel glitters. It has white bars, you know I'm not a fan LOL, but in this case they're very subtle and the effect is really nice. I used three coats, you can still see some VNL in the pictures, but it looked more opaque in real life. I wore it over whit too and it looks great too, but I wanted to show it alone.





Overall, I think it's a great collection! All the colors have nice formulas, of course you have to wait a little between coats and they're a little sheer, as all the milky jelly glitters are. I prefer to use them on their own as jellies, but if you don't like any VNL you can always layer them over white. The clear based top coats are super fan and unique too... Very difficult to pick a favorite... I think Rainbow Garden!! Surprised? I didn't pick a white based!!

Colores de Carol Blooming Garden Collection Part 1

*samples provided for review*
 Hi!! I know I've been super MIA lately... I'm sorry!!! My nails keep breaking and also life ... and well here I am again with some pretties to show you! 
I have for you today the first part of Colores de Carol's Spring collection to show you! Four beautiful polishes, soft but fun at the same time. 

Butterfly Blush is a white jelly shimmery base with teal and black square and hexagonal glitter . I used two coats over white (Chanel Eastern Light). The shimmer is really beautiful and doesn't look frosty at all. Teal glitter? Yes please!!!






Carnation is a white jelly based with all kind of red glitter. I used three coats alone but you can layer it over white. The finish was super glossy and smooth!






Daffodil is a white jelly base with yellow squares and green hexagonal glitter. I found this one a little sheerer than the others, so I decided to layer an accent nail over yellow. I used Sation Lemon Pearl and a white creme for the rest. I loved it over yellow!!!




Darling Wildflower is a white jelly base with hearts, stars, black bars and multicolor matte glitter. I used three  coats alone. You have to wait a little more between coats with this one because of the larger glitter.






What do you think about these first four? If you tried White Owl Lacquers last polishes (aka mine LOL) and you liked the new formula, you will love Carolina's formula too, because we're using the same suspension base supplier (actually I copied her haha). This new suspension has no sinking glitter problems, so not shaking like a mad woman needed ;-)

You can find Colores de Carol polishes at her store HERE and remember to use my code POLISHLAND at checkout to get 10% off on any order!
Make sure you're following Carolina on instagram and twitter  @coloresdecarol and of course her blog at www.coloresdecarol.com !!

And last news! She also has a promotion running until Sunday 14th April, free domestic shipping using code SPRINGSALE when you buy three or more polishes. You can't combine both codes, so you have to check which one works better for you. And btw my code doesn't expire :-)
I hope you liked them and I'll be back soon with three more!
