The first Takko Tuesday of the new year deserves a little nail art, right? Well that is easy because this is a special takkito today. "Paper Cuts" is the first creme polish that Takko Lacquer has released. Sheryl released this new creme as part of the Fall 2015 Collection. It is a deep dark red that, frankly, looks like blood. Which is why the name Paper Cuts is so clever! The formula was really nice. I did two coats here but if you typically do thin coats when you polish, you might need a third coat. But! I do not have a top coat on this mani. All that shine is just two coats of Paper Cuts over a base coat. Awesome! Sheryl did warn that this polish may cause some staining because of the dark pigments, but I did not have any problems. (disclaimer...I generally use peel off base coats so I don't take my polish off with remover often. the remover is what breaks down the pigments that causes a lot of the staining.)
Then I added a little nail art! I placed a single strip of striping tape along the side of my nail. Then I used a rose/champagne gold striper from the Revlon Nail Art Expressionist duo in "Silhouette" to lightly drag across the tape towards the center of my nail. Then I removed the tape and applied a top coat. Super simple and works with a huge combination of colors.
I hope you enjoyed a little nail art with your Takkos today :) A little birdie told me that we may be seeing more cremes from Takko Lacquer this year. Be sure to follow Takko on their social media platforms to get up to date info on restocks and new releases.
