Since the general revamp of Messy Wands, I've been thinking of ways to spice up my nail polish posts. I've tried the regular swatch and snap, but my pictures just didn't look as good as those from dedicated nail blogs, and that just makes me want to scrap the whole operation.
So, I thought of doing it like backstage fashion models, because at least with face makeup I can offer a color story of sorts...
