Colores de Carol 50K

Good morning!

Today, I have another Colores de Carol polish.  50K is a cobalt blue crelly flushed with aqua holographic shimmer particles (because it's not quite glitter but not quite shimmer).  In standard light, the polish looks like a beautiful cerulean blue pool but when light hits it, the holo really shines.  Unfortunately, I couldn't quite capture that rainbow effect but believe me, it's lovely.

Now to the rub: the formula.  I just couldn't make this work for.  When I first tried to apply it, I found it tacky and goopy and generally not user friendly.  I used substantial amounts polish thinner but still found the polish on the uncooperative side.  I'm not sure if I had a dud bottle, if the cold weather toyed with the chemistry, or general bad luck, but I never have such issues with Colores de Carol polish so I thought it worth sharing here.

The polish dries semi matte and uneven, so one thick coat of glossy topcoat will give you the shine this polish deserves!  This is two to three coats.

My macro really isn't worthy of sharing but I really wanted you to grasp the intensity of the blue and holographic shimmer in direct sunlight.  The color is absolutely breathtaking!

  1. Such a gorgeous shade of blue!

  2. I don't even care if it's a crappy formula, I need this, lol! The COLOR!

  3. I feel so sad about that, this could happened for the cold weather? Nobody else reported issues with this polish. I'll send you a fresh bottle ASAP. Thank you Amanda!

  4. No need to feel bad! It's probably just my body chemistry and a combo of the cold weather in the northeast. Do not stress one minute about this! The polish is stunning and it's probably just a weird fluke.
