Two experiments with things I don't normally use today: nude colours and silver foil! I recently received Orly Pure Porcelain in the mail from the lovely Kitty at kittypolishnbags mostly because it was there. I never get super excited about nude colours but this was cheap so I threw it in. I've also had a little pot of silver foil sitting on my desk for a while now, the complement to the gold foil I tried out a few weeks ago. Why not try both?
First up, omg Pure Porcelain is the most amazing nude colour. The lighest beige with a hint of pink, it seems to work perfectly with my skin tone and cover nicely in only two coats. It's going to be my polish underpants from now on, it's so good. Once I'd added the two coats, I carefully smoothed and cut out the silver foil, added the tiniest amount of top coat to the corner I wanted to add the foil to and stuck it on. Even using a cotton pad, I just couldn't get this to be as smooth as I wanted it to be. I've seen a tutorial somewhere where it's perfect but couldn't find it. As I couldn't get it perfect I just added random shapes and called it a day.
The Verdict: I love Orly Pure Porcelain and it looks great with a silver accent. I think the issue might be with the foil itself. The one I got is wadded up in a pot which puts me at a disadvantage before I even start. Might have to find some more as I like how this looks with a nude colour.
