Something New: Caronia Tropical Doll Collection

Happy Saturday friends!  Are you excited for the weekend?  What will you be doing?
Me, I'm off for a busy weekend (again) after a much deserved weekend-rests for the month of May!  June is the month for Wedding so I will be a bit busy over bridal clients!  I'm not complaining though!  I'm quite pleased with the trust clients have in me!  

Let's talk about local nail polish brand!  I've been a Caronia user for as long as I remember, I used to complain how "glossy" their finishes are and how less pigmented most of them are.  Fast forward to a decade later, I'm glad the company is coming up with matte polishes, better pigmentation and unique colors that (personally speaking), quite comparable with international brands!

A couple of weeks ago, I was sent a cute box including 3 newest shades called Tropical Doll Collection.  I believe this collection is inspired by summer --- beach, tropical fruits and drinks, the works!

L-R Kiwi (lime green)
Blueberry (true blue)
Tangerine (red orange)

Because I can't remove my nail art to swatch, and I can't pull out Mr. AMW's cute fingers and apply polish on him *laughs*, thank goodness for fake nails that I bought from Daiso!  I can show you how lovely the colors are!

Top: 1 coat
Bottom: 2 coats
These are applied without base and top coat

One Coat
As seen on swatch below, the polish isn't streaky and pigmentation is very good! 
One coat is best done for people who aren't comfortable wearing bright polish shades but wants to start somewhere!  Don't forget to finish with your choice of top coat for a nice shine and protection!

Two Coats
For that ultimate tropical experience!

Tangerine is a perfect reddish orange shade, most of the girls are scared to use red polishes as it may make them look mature or vamp-y.  Using a reddish orange polish shade shows a fun, sexy and YOUNG attitude!

Blueberry shade screams summer!  I can't say it reminded me of a blueberry (the fruit) but this calls for "young vibe"!  If you find this shade too much for you, apply this shade on your toes!

Kiwi, my favorite among the bunch, is a unique apple green shade!  I can't wait to use this for my next nail art tutorial! 
Caronia is available in all leading department stores, supermarkets, drug stores, and health & beauty shops nationwide for Php33.25 (approx $0.80)

Please keep in mind that it is best to invest on a good base coat to protect your nails from yellowing!  My favorite is the ZOYA base coat.

What's your favorite shade out of the bunch?
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
