Hello Lovely Ladies,
Last week Maya celebrated her fourth birthday. Today belongs to my oldest, Olivia who turns six! Olivia is bright and very serious. She has an incredible memory, pays attention to the littlest details, and has a gift for being innovative with paper and scissors and can draw much better than I can (this isn’t just an exaggeration from a proud parent- she really is quite gifted when it comes to drawing). While the joined-birthday party will take place this weekend, today is Olivia’s day and I hope to make it a special one for her.
There is however even more reason to celebrate today !
I would like to show you three Colores de Carol shades. These are hand mixed/created by my dearest friend and very talented fellow blogger, Carolina from ColoresdeCarol.com. I have the utmost respect for Carolina, who is a creative and talented blogger, and I am so proud and happy that she has found a way to expand her love for nail polish- by creating her very own nail polish line.
Best Polish Friend Forever is “a slightly shimmery sky blue jelly base with small white hex glitter, large purple squares, small blue squares, teal and dark blue hex glitter and pink round glitter“.
While it builds up on its own, I chose to layer it over a brighter pastel blue base: Color Club Take Me To Your Chateau
(one coat over a blue base)
There may have been mention that this polish is dedicated to Carolina’s nail polish friends… I know that I am one of them (in fact, I am a Polish polish friend lol), so in a way, this nail polish is dedicated to me To be very honest though, it is a stunning mixture of glitter in a subtle baby-blue base- you will want one for yourself AND one for YOUR best friend.
Remember GITA and the Revlon dupe? Well, Best Polish Friend Forever is MUCH better than those two- because of the slightly more opaque base and the prettier / denser grouping of glitter.

Accent nail: two coats of Color Club Take me to Your Chateau with two white stripes using a striper polish. I added a BornPrettyStore bow stamp with plate m59 (and a square gem from BPS also).

Wet Paint is a “clear base with small black glitter and multicolored micro glitter, square large glitter in pink, blue and white.“
I loooooooove these types of glitters- colorful glitter mixed in with black specks. Because the base of this polish is clear the layering options are limitless. Wet Paint is sooo fun to wear!

(layered here over Revlon Sassy and Wet n Wild On A Trip)

Cupcake Fantasy is probably my favorite from this collection. It is a “light lavender jelly base packed with glitter in different sizes, colors and shapes“
(two coats over Color Club Who are you Wearing)
I really like the mix of glitter in this one: turquoise and red and black… it all works so well together to create one yummy polish.
I took inspiration from the polish name and added some water decals that I got from Carolina a whiiiile back. I believe she got them on eBay. The images are cute (but I am not too certain about the quality… the decals lifted quite a bit… but I hope you can look past that and see the ‘idea’ I was going for ).
Before I let you go, here is a photo that Peter took of the Birthday girl (something tells me she will request some cupcakes for her birthday ).
Colores de Carol lacquers can be purchased online HERE. All lacquers are 15mL and 3 free.
(I hope to show you the other three early next week).
Carolina hopes to continue international shipping (she is in the USA).
