Summer Snow

*planned post; me relaxing on the beaches of Folegandros*
How about a snowy nail look in the middle of summer? I say - refreshing! : D

In reality I happened to see snow in the middle of July - in a dark and gloomy but yet beloved place where I was born and raised. Polish-wise: here I am talking about one representative of El Corazón Lace&Paillettes collection, which they released for spring-summer 2013, although it's full of "heavy artillery" festive glitters. And the icy polish below is El Corazón Lace&Paillettes #01!



The baby blue gritty thing consists of large blue hexagons and smaller white glitter in a blueish-transparent base. The glitter is very dense, so I didn't layer it over a creme and applied on its own instead.


The bottle is typical El Corazón Kaleidoscope with a nice thin brush. I like how the roses on a bottle look over a blue background!



The opacity is reached with 2 coats already. Application is fine, it's just you'll have thicker coats because of such large amounts of glitter stuffed inside a bottle. As I said, the finish is gritty, and top coat is not of any help here :) So you can enjoy scratching your cheeks with  the surface of your nails :)




To be honest I was feeling myself like an ice queen when I was wearing it! Surprisingly, this glitter looked quite harmonic even in summer, although I plan to wear it in winter again : ) 



And yes, it reminds me a lot of lace and paillettes, so the name of the collection matches perfectly! :)
*The nail polish was kindly provided by El Corazón company for my consideration. In this post I expressed my honest and unbiased opinion about the product.

  1. А ты его на обычную базу? Как топ он мне не очень, а вот самостоятельно лучше, именно из-за прозрачности между частичек, снежный эффект и правда

    1. Да, или может на пил-офф, уже не помню, но на прозрачную точно! Он слишком плотный для топа, я даже пробовать не стала, может зимой на темную подложку попробую.. а так он классно смотрится, причем издалека! На солнце еще поблескивает :)

    1. Спасибо, очень приятно! :) Я считаю, его лучше всего наносить самостоятельно, тем более что он кроет в 2 слоя. Давайте на ты?)

    1. Hehe, sparkling thing, right? I use peel-off base for such glitters, so removal was not so disturbing :)
