It's been a while since I last posted a Manicure Monday post. Work's been bugging me and I just can't have any peace of mind so I always skip doing shots of my week by week polishes. Now here's to freedom since vacation is near and I can finally go back to one of my first love - painting my nails.
Today's Manicure Monday is Caronia's Summer Fling in their Shades of Summer Collection. It's included in Caronia's Shades of Summer Collection which was sent to me last week. Finally, I am one of Caronia Philippines roster of bloggers!! *happydance*
I will keep you posted on all the shades of Caronia's Shades of Summer collection. It's nice to pattern their collection's name on Mr. Grey's story. Anyway, for now, let's see how this shade looks like. Here, I applied The Face Shop base and top coat with two coats of Caronia's Summer Fling. This shot was taken indoor without flash since trying to take a shot of it under direct sunlight seems to be of different shade. Let me see you the other one for comparison.
Summer fling is quite close to light plum I guess. Above's photo looks like it's more of a red but it's not. Too bad my camera phone on Samsung S4 and Nikon's Coolpix didn't give justice on the color so I took it inside. I actually noticed that dilemma on most of my red color family polishes. Hmm, I wonder why it is like that.
Anyway, I like the wear since it's best for formal events like Graduation. I actually painted it for that day. For the application and consistency, it's nice at first since the polish is new but when I was painting my 4th nail, I already experience some inconsistency on the formula. It looks smooth at first then it got chaotic after a while. I think it's because of the uneven hair on the brush. But overall, I like it 'cause it won't chip off easily. Just always combat with base coat and top coat for protection.
More colors on the blog soon! Xoxo ♥
