I made a small online purchase from Smoochiezz.com a while back.
Items were packed really nicely with thick bubble wraps.
This was what i got:
Nude nail polishes from Essie. I liked the idea of having nude/neutral nail colours so i decided to try these.
Jazz is more of a greyish-taupe colour.
(TOPLESS & BAREFOOT):
Topless & Barefoot is like a beige tone nude colour.
*Both nail polishes are applied on with 2 coats.
Since i adlready have a nude base on, i decided to give the 'newspaper manicure' a try. Here's what i did:
1) I took a page from the newspaper and cut it into small pieces like so:
2) Filled a glass with water probably about 1/4 full or just enough for my nails to be dipped in:
3) After which, i placed the piece of newspaper that was cut previously over the nail and hold there for 30 sec:
I was supposed to use rubbing alcohol for this but since i don't have any, i tried using just water to see how it turned out. So this is what it looks like after doing the same steps for all the other nails:
The "prints" didn't turn out that strong using water or probably i need to hold and press them down a little harder. Anyway, i finish it off with topcoat so that the word prints wouldn't get smudged away.
