Caronia Tropical Doll Collection
The title of the collection was inspired by the idea that summer puts us in a tropical vacation mode or simply that a lot of people wants to go to the beach to beat the summer heat. And the polish names in this collection reminds us of refreshing fruits we crave during the season.
Let me introduce you first to Caronia Kiwi. Caronia describes this polish as lime green but in real life, it's less brighter. I recommend adding a layer of a glossy top coat. It looks really fab with a lot of shine! Application can be tricky but it didn't matter because I personally think this is a good green for summer.
I tried Caronia Blueberry next and Caronia described it as true blue. Personally, I'd say it is more like a cyan blue. However it is called, I liked it. Reminds me of the ocean. This would make a very attractive polish when you hit the beach. Consistency was a bit thick but I didn't have any problems with application.
Finally, we have Caronia Tangerine and Caronia refers to this as a red orange polish. It looks gorgeous! Well, I know I am bias when it comes to reds and I'm sure you'll agree with me after looking at the swatches below. It is a very sexy color, don't you think so? :)
After trying all 3 colors, I decided to have more fun with them by creating a simple nail art using all 3 polishes. My curiosity on how they would look together on my nails was too strong to resist. This is what I came up with:
Nail Art Design using Caronia Tropical Doll Collection
by Simply Rins
I painted horizontal stripes using Caronia Kiwi, Blueberry, and Tangerine. The focus in on the colors so I didn't paint any design on top of it when I was done. And since my nail beds are rather small, I used a detailing nail art brush to help me paint the stripes.
I admit the horizontal stripes made my nails appear shorter than they already are but I'm quite satisfied with how it turned out. The colors look wonderful together. It doesn't remind me of summer though or the fruits that they each polish is named after with this nail design. But I love it. :)
I figured using a scotch tape to create clean straight lines would have been a smarter choice for this nail art. But I didn't have that much time to create the design so I decided to use a detailing nail art brush so that I won't have to wait for the polishes to dry before I work with another color. In any way that you choose to create the same design, what matters is finding what works for you.
