Hello Lovely Ladies,
I hope you all had a good weekend. We survived in Winter Wonderland 😉 and we celebrated the girls’ birthdays amongst close friends and family- it was a busy but pleasant weekend.
Today I would like to share with you three more Colores de Carol lacquers 😀
Colores de Carol I Smell Spring is described as “a yellowish nude jelly base with multicolored glitter in different sizes and shapes”
I don’t generally wear yellow well, but I Smell Spring is nude/beige enough to be super flattering and very fun to wear. Though it is not a scented polish, the glitters within definitely remind me of the gorgeous tulips and other flowers that blossom in the spring. I also started to think of my favourite spring/summer fruits: strawberries and watermelons 😉
(little strawberry gems are from Belissimo Nails)

Colores de Carol Hero in Disguise is described as “A light gray jelly base with a subtle shimmer, packed with small yellow glitter, hot pink glitter and small black stars”
(one coat over China Glaze Pelican Grey)
Hero in Disguise came as a pleasant surprise. The mixture of larger glitters and soft turquoise shimmer really work well together!!! I didn’t expect to like this one as much as I did 😀 The glitter is really bright and fun against the timid grey-jelly background.
When I applied this polish I felt an urge for adventure, a sense of bravery 😉 to try a new technique: some abstract-ish freehand 😉

To create this look I dabbed on some spots with OPI The Spy Who Loved me and a gold striper polish. I then used a thin nail-art brush and white and black acrylic paint to draw on a few random lines and zig-zags.

Colores de Carol It’s Raining Hearts is described as “A clear base with fine glitter, round and hex glitter and pink, red and white heart shape glitter”
pinky: China Glaze IV
middle finger: China Glaze Fifth Avenue
pointer finger: OPI California Raspberry
ring finger: stripes of all three shades and white striper polish
I really wanted to layer It’s Raining Hearts over a couple of shades of pink/red. The clear jelly base really lends itself to layering. The soft red glitter bits add a bit of interest while the larger hearts are bold and playful. I did have to dab the hearts rather than paint them on, but that allowed me to pick and choose the placement of the hearts 😀
