NOTD Essence Grey-t To Be Here with leopard print

October 15, 2012

Today's NOTD is a fun and easy to make lepard print. No stamping, no special tools and very little time invested to receive a great result.
I've been wanting to try this for a while, and it was surprisingly fun when finally did it!
I started with two coats of Essence Grey-t To Be Here, then added pink spots (don't try to make them rounded and perfect, then you'll get much nicer results) with Essence Ultimate Pink. Then I used a toothpick and applied black polish to partially contour the pink spots, and added some black shapes to fill the gaps. When it was quite dry I applied Poshe top coat (use a generous coat to prevent the smearing), and voilà - it's done!
Super easy and fun nail art! I'm sure I'll be doing it again soon :)

 The polish I used for the base was Essence Grey-t To Be Here, which is a light grey with a subtle pink shimmer. The new Essence bottles are very pretty, they contain 8ml instead of 5ml as in the old ones. The brush is wider and rounded, which I wasn't sure it's better but this is the only polish I've tried so far. I should test them few more times and then I would be able to decide if I like the new brush or not. I used two generous coats, which was enough for, but the formula was a bit streaky but not too bad.
Overall I'm pretty happy with this polish - it's a great light and neutral grey that I've been looking for and I really love it's shimmer. Plus the bottle is adorable, and I just LOVE how they make the caps of each color look as the polish itself :)
Great job Essence!

      את הלקים ביקשתי שישלחו לי, לצערי לא מצאתי חנות שמוכרת אותם אונליין ועושה משלוחים.
