Hey guys! Today I have a swatch and review of the Spring 2017 collection available now from Colores de Carol! These were sent to me for review and will retail for $11 a piece of $80 plus shipping for the entire set. If you’d like you may use my coupon code JESSICA to save 10% off of any order! I will be showing a final angled pictures using the new Matte N’ Go topcoat from Colores de Carol as well.

First up is Lily which is described as a “white crelly base with medium dots (pink, fuchsia, purple, blue and light blue) and pastel hearts and stars.” This is one of the most adorable crelly mixes I have ever seen! The formula is on the thicker side to help keep all of the glitters nice and suspended, I did find the star and heart glitters to be a little bit hard to fish out so they may be better intended for a little bit of glitter placement. I was super pleased at how glossy this polish dried and it looks even better with a matte topcoat!

Next up is Abbey which is described as a “fuchsia pink base with multi chrome shimmer (gold/green/purple), gold dust shimmer and micro holo glitter.” This polish has a fabulous 2 coat formula and I am totally digging on all of the gold shimmer!

Next up is Ava which is described as a “salmon/pink base with multi chrome shimmer (purple/violet/reddish-gold), micro holographic flakes and multi chrome flakes (red/gold/orange).” This polish is my top pick from this entire line, it is completely unique to my collection! The bright pinkish base reminds me so much of watermelon and the multi chrome flakies look like watermelon seeds to me in this mix and I absolutely love it. It needed 3 coats for full opacity for me.

Next up is Aria which is described as a “dusty creamsicle orange base with micro holo flakes and multi chrome shimmer (purple/violet/reddish-gold.)” This is a very sweet orange sherbet shade that built up beautifully for me in 3 coats!

Next up is Amelia which is described as a “dark turquoise green with lime holo micro glitter, micro holographic flakes and gold shimmer.” This one was a 2 to 3 coater for me and it went on so smooth and easy! I had no staining either.

Next up is another one of my favorites is Mila which is described as a “light blue creme with electric blue micro flakes, a multi chrome shimmer (purple/violet/reddish-gold) iridescent color-shift (red/gold/green) glitter, micro holo flakes and light blue micro holo glitter.” There is a very delicate shimmer in this polish that has me absolutely in love, it built up very nicely in 3 coats.

The last cream today I have today is Olivia which is described as a “medium lavender creme with multi chrome shimmer (purple/blue/green), iridescent (blue/purple) micro glitter and micro holographic flakes.” This is another super easy 2-3 coater which a gorgeous delicate finish. This one did have some slight texture due to those flakies.

CameliaBottle

Last up is Camelia, described as a “holographic top coat with four different multi chrome flakes, micro holo flakes and three different sizes of iridescent color-shift glitter.” This topper is everything in the world I love all in one! I found it to be perfectly dense as a topper but I think it would be a bit hard to build it up to full opacity. The linear holographic effect is absolutely lit! I do honestly love how it looks with a matte topcoat as well, it really helps bring those multi chrome flakies to the forefront.

  1. This whole collection is beautiful. It’s very spring-y without being typical and expected. I haven’t tried any Colores de Carol shades yet, but you made me want this entire collection!
