Swatches & Review - 3 El Corazon Large Hologram shades

Hi loves! Today I have 3 amazing shades to show you, part of the El Corazon Large Hologram collection. In total, there are 16 shades in this set and they all have a jelly base (all tinted except for one) filled with large, silver holographic flakes. They give the most beautiful holographic sparkle in the sun or direct light, but also look pretty without a direct light source.

El Corazon Large Hologram Cosmos is a black jelly base, filled with silver holographic flakes. I was a bit scared it wouldn't build up to a proper intense black shade, but with 3 coats it did. Application was easy, the first layer might look slightly patchy or uneven but nothing of that remains when you build it up. Shown are 3 coats without topcoat.

El Corazon Large Hologram Galaxy is a purple jelly base, filled with silver holographic flakes. The purple shade is so pretty! It's quite cool toned, and the holographic effect of the flakies stands out so well against it. Application was similar to Cosmos, again 3 coats and no topcoat.

El Corazon Large Hologram Kryptonite is a teal jelly base, filled with silver holographic flakes. OH. EM. GEE. You know I love shades like these, and this one doesn't disappoint! It's a mermaid like beauty, with an amazing finish. Such an intense shade! Application was similar to Cosmos and Galaxy, again 3 coats and no topcoat.

Overall conclusion
I am in love with these 3. They become opaque enough to have no VNL, but the squishy jelly base allows for the sparkle to be build up and create a lovely depth to the final result. Without sunlight or a direct light source they are colorful jellies with a silver sparkle, when the light hits them right they become these glorious holographic beauties. Application was good on all 3 and even though you need 3 coats, it really doesn't cost any effort. My favorite is Kryptonite but I can't really choose, they are all so pretty!

What do you think of these holographic beauties? Have you ever tried anything from El Corazon? Tell me in the comments!

    These are absolutely gorgeous! I think Kryptonite is my favourite as well. They are so intense and the holo effect is stunning! I have to look at El Corazon's website for my next haul!

  16. You always have the best polishes to share! And the way you capture the holo is amazing. Id love to spend a day looking at your stash and picking your brain about photography tips. These 3 are beautiful and I'm not sure I would have guessed them to be jellies. They are so pigmented and sparkly! I cant pick a favorite from these 3.
