Essence has again come up with a great limited edition called Ethno Couture. Today, I’ll show to you the two eyeliners and all four nail polishes.
I’ll start with the eyeliners Auroshika and Tanamera.
The colors are pretty but nothing spectacular.
Let’s move to the nail polishes.
Tuvalu is a great creme red that is highly pigmented. There is only one coat in the picture. No application problems.
The headline promises some ideas. Let’s start with the first idea. To add something special to your manicure, you can stick some stickers to your nails and your manicure will immediately look a lot different.
Here I used the Pretty Woman 3D Nail Art Stickers, which are sold here in Slovenia for 1,99€.
Ayada is a orange creme shade. There two coats in the picture.
The next idea I got from Nihrida and her “Half-moon manicure”. I used the reinforcements for the paper a little bit different than she did.
Over Ayada I layered one coat of Tuvalu. This manicure was done just for you readers and in a hurry, so please excuse the sloppy job.
Shankar is the special one in this collection. It’s creme yellow that applied perfectly in just two coats.
I layered one coat of Gosh – Rainbow over Shankar. The picture really doesn’t show the cool effect that Rainbow flakes made. For the Konad design I used an image from the m25 plate and the Tuvalu polish. Yes, Tuvalu works with Konad!
And the last one is the dark creme plum shade called Auroshika. For this one you’ll probably need three coats to make it perfect. I used just two coats.
It’s a very pretty shade. Although it’s very dark, you can tell in almost any light that it’s purple. I added some dots to this one…
For the dots I used blue-purple metallic shade 300 from Manhattan.
What do you think? Which shade do you like the most? And how do you like my ideas?
