El Corazon Aquarelle Tints + Stamping Polish Review, Nail Art

Last year around this time I had done a nail art inspired by mangoes - my favorite summer fruit. This summers I wanted to try out oranges - inspired not really by the fruit but the El Corazon Aquarelle Tints!

Aquarelle Tints are pale polishes which have an almost jelly like effect on your nails. You can build the color with multiple coats without making it look gloopy. The polishes are great for doing nail art called Leadlight Technique (which I have used on my thumb and middle finger.

For lead light technique you stamp an image on your nail and then fill it in with colors. To do this nail art I first did 2 coats of the Aquarelle Tints shade 04 and 06 alternately on my nail. 04 is yellow while 06 is a pink color. Together they gave me the perfect juicy orange color that I wanted. 

Then I used El Corazon white stamping polish to stamp the image of oranges from a stamping plate BM 308. Then I took a few drops of Aquerelle Tint 04 and mixed it with a few drops of Aquerelle Tint 06 on a piece of paper and quickly applied the polish mix to fill in the orange. I kept applying multiple coats of the polish mix to get the 3D effect in the orange slices.


For rest of the fingers I did alternate coats of Aquerelle Tint 04 and 06 with a total 6 coats. Then I stamped the same image using Maybelline Porcelain party - as you can see the stamping polish used by El Corazon is much brighter - I chose these two different polishes for stamping to show you the difference between a regular polish used for stamping versus a polish that is specifically meant for stamping.  Also the effect I get with two nails that stand out was perfect to do the lead light technique on two nails.

El Corazon Aquarelle Tints are gorgeous polishes. They look pretty on their own (build up the intensity of the color to your liking). And they are also great for nail art.

El Corazon Stamping Polish White is an intense white polish that stamps perfectly. The polish is quite thick so if  you live in a hot climatic area then make sure you don't sit in a place where the polish can dry easily (turn off the fan) when you stamp. Otherwise it gets difficult to stamp very intricate images because the polish dries quickly if there is direct air blowing near it.

I have got a few more colors of the Aquarelle Tints and stamping polishes so do look out for some more nail art in the coming days.
