On October 18, Kara‘s Nicole updated her twitter in Japanese, “Birthday present I got at the airport. Thank you so much. Since I don’t have any makeup on, I’m showing just my eyes. Covering the dark circles makes it look a little better,” and uploaded a picture along with the comment. 

The revealed picture shows down-to-earth looking Nicole without any makeup on. She is covering most of her face with what seems to be a desktop calendar she received from a Japanese fan. With her untamed blonde hair and just her starry eyes peeping slightly above the calendar, Nicole almost looks like a young, pretty boy in this picture. 

Netizens commented on Nicole’s picture, “I still see a little bit of dark circles, but you are still beautiful,” “You’re still pretty with all the dark circles,” and “How bad is it that you had to cover more than half of your face?”
