Caronia brings color to new heights with this year’s nail polish collections, in partnership with the country’s first professional dance company, Ballet Philippines. “This is the first corporate partnership of Ballet Philippines and we are happy to have Caronia as our partner,” says Margie Moran-Floirendo, Ballet Philippines President.
The first collection, called “Art of Dance”, marks the opening of Ballet Philippines’ 45th season. It is also Caronia’s first Toluene and Formaldehyde-Free collection, featuring three distinct colors: Piqué, a regular polish in a delicate salmon pink shade that lets out that ballerina in you; Chassé, a regular polish with a royal blue shade that sets the elegance of ballet on your nails; and Glissade, a light green regular polish that gives a smooth glide on every summer outfit.
Part of the proceeds of this special collection goes to the Ballet Philippines Foundation’s Noordin Jumalon Scholarship Program, which supports the dance education of over 100 students every year.
Nail Polish when worn (2 coats)

Caronia will always have a soft spot in my heart for being the first nail polish brand I've owned when I was in gradeschool. These polishes are pigmented and easy to apply. 2 coats is all you need for a truly opaque finish. My favorite from the bunch is Glissade, the green shade. It goes on really smooth, very pigmented, and the formulation was very easy to work with. Piqué, the salmon pink color was the most difficult to work with texture wise since I found the formulation a bit "thick". Chassé, the blue polish is as pigmented and easy to apply as Glissade. These polishes are not bad considering the price. Longevity-wise these are pretty average and I would suggest you use a good topcoat to make this last longer.
Do I recommend these polishes? If you're on a budget and looking for trendy and vibrant colors for the season then you should definitely get these! I am so in love with Glissade and I cannot stop raving about how beautiful this color is and the texture/formulation is just lovely.
Have a fabulous day peeps! xx
I'd love to hear from you guys!
