Wanna Look Chic? Try Taupe Nail Polish!

Why do we love Taupes?
What is so cool about this grayish-brown
brownish-gray color that has no generally accepted definition?

Magic behind Taupe is that the color itself is so different.
 Taupe is a perfect nude partner and compliments every skin tone.
Looks very classy and chic.

Do You Feel NAKED or NAKED 2? I Feel Both!


I got it, I finally got it!
My lovely-pretty-gorgeous-amazing
Urban Decay Naked Palette 2

I am quite surprised that it was pretty easy this time.
I remember the headache with purchasing original Naked Palette,
it was either sold out, or not available internationally,
crazily overpriced on Ebay, etc.
And this time I only got an email -
"Naked Palette 2, free worldwide delivery (!!!), available now"
And I said: ".......!$#$&^%*&^*@surrrre!"

Let it be 100 000 001 review, but here it is,
all sleek and shiny...
