1_333If you like cute packaging, then you must have noticed the cute little bottles of Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink that have recently shown up in the Scrapbook.com superstore. If the adorable packaging doesn't have you convinced, then consider the name, "Smooch," and the wonderful colors that it comes in: Siren, Green Apple, Sugarberry, Azure, Pumpkin, Moonlight, Gold Lame, and Silver Fox.

You might be wondering what this ink does, other than look great on the shelf in that wonderful packaging. The packaging may look like nail polish, but the applicator has a much finer tip.

The fine tip is wonderful for coloring in stamped images, even those with small sections. It is very easy to use and to stay within the lines, even for a complicated image. Although the packaging looks like nail polish, the actual product is not thick like nail polish, and provides a thinner pearlized finish.

The fine tip can also be used for adding freeform accents to scrapbook pages and cards.

So, what doesn't it do? Although it is called ink, it does not seem to be very useful for stamping. I tried applying it to a stamp and stamping, but the image does not come out clearly. It is also not very good for coloring metal embellishments.

Overall, I am very pleased with the smooch pearlized ink. The colors are amazing and the packaging adorable. I think I need one in every color and I think that you will too.
