Hi loves! How are you today? Glad it is weekend? I have 2 more weeks left to work and then it is vacation time, awww yeeeeaaah! Can't wait ♥.
The manicure you are looking at today is a combo of El Corazon Kaleidoscope T-28 (a thermal) and Shimmer Airriann. I used Duri Rejuvacote as my base and Essence BTGTS as my topcoat.
El Corazon Kaleidoscope T-28 is as I said a thermal polish and it shifts from a nice bright red shade (hot) to a dark brownish brick shade (cold). It applied very easy, nice formula, and it dries to a rubbery matte finish. I didn't use topcoat in between because I knew I'd top it with the glitter but I am sure it'll look nice and shiny after topcoat!
The color transformation is quick. You dip in your fingers in cold water (I had a little cup filled with water and icecubes) and it immediately changes. I had a hard time getting the 2 shades on my nails at the same time, the moment I wore this it was very hot here so my nails warmed up real quick. You can also check this little video.
Next, I topped it with Shimmer Airriann. This lovely glitter is packed with gold, red, black and more colors and applied very easy. All Shimmers are so nice to work with! I chose to layer 1 coat over my base to let the thermal still show through. The glitter looked nice both on the hot and cold color.
I really liked the combo of both polishes and I enjoyed my first thermal polish! What do you think of it? And what is your favorite thermal polish?
El Corazon can be bought by sending an e-mail to ELCorazonzakaz@gmail.com. I do not have any idea of the shipping costs or the price per polish unfortunately.
