Sunday Manicure (Vol.16)

Products used: Erre Due Diamond Base Coat 6.49€ Korres Nail Colour no. 23 ‘Cyclamen’ 8€ Erre Due Ceramic Top Coat 6.49€ First Impressions: In keeping with the lighter & Spring-ier shade focus, I went for Korres’ no.23 – a cyclamen pink/ fuschia creme- for this week’s mani. The shade is slightly darker than what it looks like in the photo (I really should invest in some sort of studio lighting contraption) but, other than that, I’ve got no grievances today… The color payoff was quite good (got two coats on in the photo), the consistency was easy to work with (albeit a bit thick), the drying time was satisfactory and the finish as glossy as ever (coupled by my top coat, it literally made photographing quite a chore). As I said last time, @ less than 7 or 8€ a pop (depending on where you buy, apparently) I think Korres’ polishes are great value for money (& equal, or better, quality than some of the higher-end ones).

Sunday Manicure (Vol.15)

Products used: Erre Due Diamond Base Coat 6.49€ Korres Nail Colour no. 76 ‘Lavender’ 6.40€ Erre Due Ceramic Top Coat 6.49€ First Impressions: Lately I’ve been feeling like I’ve had enough of dark, winter-y colors so (with the weather gods smiling down on us these past few days) I thought I’d swatch something lighter & reminiscent of Spring.  Now, I’m not one to look good in pale colors but I still like them, which is why I picked up Korres’ no.76 – a lavender creme with a hint of blue in it, which somehow helps me pull it off. As always, the brand was a pleasure to work with – ‘Lavender’ had amazing color payoff (easily a one-coater, even though I used two here), great consistency (that made for easy/ flawless application), a short drying time (no dry-fast top coat involved) and a gorgeous glossy finish. At less than 7€ this is great value for money (& equal, or better, than some of the higher end brands). Have you tried any of the Korres’ polishes? …
