    I think getting to see these in natural light would go a long way towards being able to answer that question.

    Time to polish with neutral cream or rennovator to spread the color out more evenly, just IMO.

    Never use neutral polish ... Renovateur yes, sparingly, occasionally.

    I prefer neutral cream (creme 1925) over rennovateur

    Not as sticky, and imo does a better job loosening old polishes (as long as same brand)

    Elfsberg - those are simply magnificent. and the bags are awesome. i see they have different ones for bespoke.

    curious question, any reason you did not go with metal toe taps?

    I actually went for another solution. If you look carefully can you see that I went for nails instead of metal toe taps..

    yes, i noticed that. sorry, i guess i should have been more specific. i meant why did you chose the nails over the taps. pros and cons?
