Colores de Carol When the Planets Align Collection



I'm so excited to show you the When the Planets Align Collection from blogger and indie maker Colores de Carol.  This collection consists of 7 milky topcoats that provide a soft duochrome and holographic shimmer layered over a dark creme.  All swatches are one coat over one coat of a black creme.

Venus
Venus absolutely stole my heart.  A purple to blue shift, the glistening of holo really made this look like a little galaxy on my nails!

Jupiter
A blue to green shift, Jupiter is bit milkier than most of the others in this collection making it slightly less self leveling and thus a bit uneven over the black.  However the holographic shimmer is breathtaking!

Earth
I love that Earth is a green to brown shift -- just so perfect!  This reminds me of a more complex Brucci Black Emerald, with a stronger green tone and shimmer.

Mars
The red planet, this red to purple shift is absolutely magical!  One of the most self leveling of the septet, the brown undertone worked best at masking the black underwear to look like one seamless polish.

Mercury
Very similar to Mars, Mercury shares the same reddish brown to purple shift.  A tad bit lighter, this works just as beautifully with the black to create an absolutely perfect manicure.

Neptune
As much as I wanted to love Neptune, I just couldn't make it look right over the black.  It kept shrinking and the more evening out I tried, gave it more of a frosty look.  I reswatched this a few times before I had to just apply one thick coat that I had to quickly spread over the nail (these babies dry quickly!) to avoid too much unevenness or brushstroke lines.

Pluto
A purple to blue to green shift, Pluto did the same thing that Neptune did in shrinking and applying unevenly (you can see that best on my pinkie and middle finger).  Such a shame because the color of this is absolutely mesmerizing!
