Hey guys! Today I have a swatch and review of the Cupid’s Vacation collection available now from Colores de Carol as well as some super simple and easy nail art! These were sent to me for review.

First up is the namesake of the collection, Cupid’s Vacation! Cupid’s Vacation is described as a “pink-ish red linear holographic with micro holo black glitter, iridescent shimmer (gold to green to blue) and multi-chrome flakes (teal, purple, blue.)” This polish has a super intense linear holographic flame, the black glitters did read a little bit blue to me in this mix. Cupid’s Vacation has a beautiful 2 coat formula that dried down just slightly dull.

Next up is Venus’s Lazy Day which is described as an “orange-ish brown linear holographic with gold shimmer and holo flakes.” This polish did lean more orange than brown to me and has a beautiful almost spiced rum tone to it! Venus’s Lazy Day had a really easy two coat formula as well!

Last up is my top pick of this trio, Substitute Boss: Eros! This polish has an amazing 1-2 coat formula and the finish is just gorgeous!

Smooshy nail art! 

For my nail nail art today I did a super easy squishy look! To begin I laid down a base of 1 coat of Tux Polish’s Pure and some liquid latex around my cuticles for easier cleanup. Then I added dabs of each of the three colors in this collection directly to my clear stamper, I found if you add more of the orange it makes for a beautiful watercolor finish! I then dabbed my stamper directly to a mat to blend the polishes a bit before dabbing it directly to my nail. I did make two passes before top coating and clean up. This is the result:
