Presenting the Underwood 2016 collection by NWP Classic Essentials.

Native War Paints also graces us with their other “brand” NWP Classic Essentials.  They make beautiful shimmers that are very affordable.  The NWP Classic Essentials are described as CLASSIC finishes, work ESSENTIALS and “work appropriate line of indie polishes.”  I am sure they say this because their main line consists of bold and fun shimmers and holo.

NWP CLASSIC ESSENTIALS UNDERWOOD 2016 “DOUG”

nwp-classic-essentials-underwood-2016-house-of-cards-doug-1

“Doug” is a dark green metallic.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.  Because this is a metallic, brush strokes are visible.  Try to use a light hand when applying polishes with this finish and the brush strokes are less visible.

NWP CLASSIC ESSENTIALS UNDERWOOD 2016 “FLOTUS *CLAIRE*”

nwp-classic-essentials-underwood-2016-house-of-cards-flotus-claire-1

“Flotus *Claire*” is a pale pink with a flash of blue shimmer.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.  This couldn’t be name “Claire” since one already exists in the Classic Essentials line.  This one went on a bit streaky for the first coat, but the second coat filled in the gaps.

“Frank” is a dark blue creme with a hint of reddish shimmer.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.  This color is very opaque and creamy!

NWP CLASSIC ESSENTIALS UNDERWOOD 2016 “PETER”

nwp-classic-essentials-underwood-2016-house-of-cards-peter-1

“Peter” is a burnt gold metallic.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.  Maybe because this one is lighter than the other metallic shades, but the brush strokes are extra visible.  I still love this though!

“Zoe” is a dark grey with grey sparkle.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.  I am pretty sure this is my favorite from the collection!

 This set has wonderful colors for the season.  And guess what?  They stamp and watermarble!

The above look was done using “Heather” as the base and then stamping using “Jackie,” “Remy,” and “Frank.”  The stamping plate is W409 from Winstonia.
nwp-classic-essentials-underwood-2016-watermarble-stamping-nail-art-fall-colors-1
This is my favorite fall nail art I have done so far!  I watermarble the two middle nails using “Peter,” “Remy,” “Doug,” and “Jackie.”  I then stamped over it using white stamping polish and plate W403 from Winstonia.
Thanks for reading!
