Korres Gel Effect 'Peony Pink' & 'Burgundy Red'

*AD - Gifted*
Hello! Today I have a look at two Korres Gel Effect polishes, thanks to Sparkle PR. I did swatch two others from the gel effect range ('Berry Addict' and 'Watermelon') nearly a year ago here. Each polish is intended to be chip resistant and last up to 10 days. They are also infused with almond oil, amino acids, and pro-vitamin B5 for moisture, nourishment, and strength. Read on for my full swatches and more info!

'Peony Pink' is a very pale pink nude. The formula is smooth and easy to apply, though it is sheer and streaky. While I would normally draw a line at three coats, I did add a fourth to this to even out some of the more obvious streaks. Below is four coats with topcoat.

'Burgundy Red' is, as the name suggests, a deep burgundy creme. It has a smooth and easy to apply formula, and is the much more opaque shade of the two. I did have a couple of streaks after my second coat, so I added a quick third to even everything out. Below is three coats with topcoat.

I think both of the polishes go quite well together, so decided to do a quick mani with the two. I tested to see if 'Burgundy Red' would stamp on a whim and was surprised to find that it did! I stamped a marble effect pattern over a base of 'Peony Pink'

What do you think? Honestly, 'Peony Pink' isn't really my kind of polish, but I really liked it a base for my stamping. I also think it would work really well in a french manicure - or maybe even in a jelly/glitter sandwich! 'Burgundy Red' is much more my style, and is a staple shade for those vampy manis.

You can find both 'Peony Pink' & 'Burgundy Red', along with the rest of the gel effect line on the Korres website here.
