Hey y’all! Today I have a swatch and review of the Breast Cancer Awareness Duo, available now from Colores de Carol! These polishes retail at $11 a piece of $20 for the complete duo and they were sent to me for review. A portion of each sale will be donated to The Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation.

First up is Esperanza, described as a “a sparkly baby pink crelly base with pink and red glitters.” This is a beautiful crelly polish with amazing coverage! Completely opaque for me and super easy to work with, I love how the hot pink glitters pop in this base! Esperanza also looks darling matte.

The other half of the duo is Resilience, described as a “a mauve pink holo with rose gold micro flakes and iridescent micro glitter.” This polish is a stunner and is perfectly opaque in 2 easy coats. This almost looks like a metallic holo with all of the gorgeous glowing shimmer, the linear effect if really strong too!

Next I did some really quick and easy breast cancer awareness nailers! I began with a base of 2 coats of Esperanza. Next I used white polish to free hand an awareness ribbon towards the tip of my ring nail. I then went over the white polish with Resilience before top coating to seal it all in. On my middle nail I used striped nail vinyls and Resilience once more.
