Say Hello to Summer

Hi girls! Hope you are all doing great I miss updating my blog.. It's been 2 weeks if I'm not mistaken. I received a summer collection from Caronia Ph. Included are 6 colors of nail polish ( 2 frosted and 4 regular finished ). Caronia is one of the first nail polish manufacturer here in the Philippines, one of my favorite local brand.. So let me start with
"Sun Kissed" A pumpkin orange shade, which has a medium orange hue, proper balance of red, and has a light touch of yellow. It's a must have this summer! 2 coats and it's done! I used XIUYA 01 image plate. This was my friend's birthday present to me.. Thanks Jamie! She is one of my nicest friend. I love her! btw you can visit her blog HERE! It's a really good to read blog

"Sweet Surprise" A perfect yellow shade, love it! I applied 3 coats for full coverage but 2 coats is enough. it is thick for a frosted nail polish... You can combine any color with this color. So I decided to do a WM. This is only the 4th time I attempted to do water marble technique, inspired by my friend mia. she did a marble-lous water marble design, check her instagram...surely you will like it ( @NAILSBYMIAWRRR)

"On The Go" A pine green color and has a hint of blue shade, average dark green...Very unique.. 2 coats, opaque! I love this color. I did double stamping design, image plate from bornpretty BP- L007 and I put some rhinestones.. Love the outcome!

 "First Crush"
Iris a purple shade to be exact. I love this color, 2 coats and that's it! I also love the stamp design I used for this. White and pink flower also from Jamie (XIUYA 12) Thank you
 "Rainbow Tan"
At first, I thought this one would not suit my skin complexion. I don't usually wear nude shades not because I don't like it, but I prefer bright and lively colors more. I applied 3 coats for this, it has tiny shimmering glitters. It is simply elegant.. I used bornpretty BP - L004 image plate for this design...
Last but not the least..
 "Summer Fling"
Is a deep pink creme color, I did two coats, they're very opaque, I definitely like this one . I love it! In my design, I used Fab Ur Nails FUN 14 image plate ( advanced stamping technique )

Hope you like them guys!

Pros: Opaque Didn't easily chip Affordable Easy to apply
Cons: Some of them leave stains in nails..

And here are some of my late post using caronia nail polish I did last December
