Swatches & Review - Various El Corazon shades

Hi loves! Today I have a bit of swatch spam to show you. You might be familiar with the brand El Corazon. It's Russian brand and available at Hypnotic Polish. This brand also has a polish line called Kaleidoscope, which comes in round bottles that holds 15ml. I want to show you 2 polishes from each brand/line today but I think both lines are the same? The colors that are in El Corazon bottles are available as Kaleidoscope polish too.

El Corazon Kaleidoscope swatches and review


Every polish is 2 or 3 coats over a base of Essence Studio Nails XXL Nail Protector and topped with a england The Shield. Hope you enjoy these swatches!

El Corazon Fashion Girl In Paris is a grey jelly base that has some blue in it, filled with thiny white glitter and white hexes as well. It applied nicely but I needed 3 coats for good opacity, which kinda took away from the jelly finish. The glitter didn't clump but it does dry to a slightly gritty surface, so don't skip topcoat.

This seems to be the same as Kaleidoscope Fashionista In Paris.

El Corazon Fashion Girl Gone Shopping is a lavender jelly base filled with tiny white glitter and white hexes as well. Good application, again 3 coats needed for opacity but it remained a bit more squishy. 

This seems to be the same as Kaleidoscope Fashionista On Shopping.

Kaleidoscope by El Corazon Fashionista At The Wedding is a white jelly base filled with tiny white glitter and white hexes as well. I had a bit more trouble with this one since it's much more noticable if you don't apply it evenly. Also on my index finger you can see my first layer was a bit too thick. I do love how squishy this is, very delicate!

Unfortunately not available right now at Hypnotic Polish.

Kaleidoscope by El Corazon Fashionista In The Club is a purple base filled with tiny white glitter and white hexes as well. This was the most opaque and only needed 2 coats. At first the glitter clumped a bit but if you are careful with your first coat, the second will be just fine.

This is available at Hypnotic Polish.

Which out of these 4 would be your pick? Tell me in the comments!
