CR Cairuo Nail Polish

CR Cairuo Nail Polish


Hello :) I got the nail polish I was waiting on yesterday :) Cairuo, a brand I have never heard of before. I was looking for a bright yellow nail polish, as I wasn't really impressed the Maybelline Colour Show in Electric Yellow. Looks nice and bright in the bottle, but once painted on the nail turns a mustardy colour. So was looking on ebay for a brighter yellow, and came across this set of six bright nail polishes by CR Cairuo. Coat £5.99 with £2.99 P&P. Looked for a review on them, but found no one had on these colours, just some others by the same brand. They are a nice looking polish, with coloured lids matching the polish colour, but sadly the yellow wasn't as bright as I was hoping for. But still a nice lot of colours.






The only thing that puzzled me was the names lol, yellow is yellow, so why it has a sticker saying orange I can't explain. Which made me see if I could find the others to see if they too had different names. My search paid off.....they have apart from one. Not sure why they have different names, when they are the same colour, unless it a different supplier. I'll tell you the other names now, just in case you would like to buy these. Starting the the names on mine, and the other names I found.
26-Orange also found as Bright Orange.
30-Rose also found as Shocking Pink.
28-Strawberry also found as Fuchsia.
23-Green Tea also  found as Summer Green.
17-Blueberry also found as Sky Blue
15-Orange also  found as Sunshine.

As a polish, it was nice to apply. The yellow, as I think most are, was very streaky. I wouldn't say they are scented, but didn't have a normal nail polish smell. It was some what perfumery. Not the nicest of smells, but not overpowering either. 

Swatched with one coat.



Swatched with two coats.



A beautiful set of colours, just a shame the yellow wasn't as bright as the others. The blue was the only one that seemed to dry slight matte. What do you think? Let me know if you have any polish by Cairuo, and what you think of it.

  2. Thank you for that, I didn't know. Must say though the ones I have don't really have a scent that I've noticed.

    1. I have a pink one that says Rose and smells just like it, and a more brown pink-ish tone that smells like chocolate <3

  3. I discovered these polishes last week. The names were a puzzle to me too, lol, but they have some lovely shades. I bought 6 for £4 (3 for £2) from my local hairdressing suppliers.
    Thinking of getting some more ;o)

  5. I bought them recently at a dollar store in my area and was pleasantly surprised at how good they are. I bought 3 to test them out last week at $1.99 each (CDN) and I'm going back today to buy more colours to add to my collection. I've been getting so many great comments on my nails too :)

  6. I just happened to notice them one day and figured the price was right and the colours were on point... Why not :)

    I don't think I'll ever buy expensive brands again (except for Seche Vite... That is so worth every penney). I've used Seche Vite for the base and top coat since starting to use CR Cairou and it works so well together and dries so fast.

    Love them ❤

  7. One more thing, at first I thought the nail polish did smell like the name but I didn't put 2 and 2 together until reading this blog... Thanks for confirming that that is true :)
