I love this blue (if you read my blog you’ll know how much!). A delicate cornflower creme blue perfect for spring. It is an old Misa, I could find any info about it and it’s not in their core collection (according to their website, http://www.misacosmetics.com). And it’s a lovely light creme perfect for the coming season! Picture is taken quite some time ago so can’t remember much about the application – other than I’ve done it in the dark (at least it looks like it!)
Coats: 1 coat OPI Nail Envy, 1 coat Orly Bonder, 3 coats Misa and 1 coat Nubar Diamont.
Light: Outside, overcast.

From the China Glaze winter 2010 Wizards of Ooh Ahz collection. It is a re-release of a collection that came in 2001 and the polishes (except for Ruby Pumps that is in the core collection) have been notoriously hard to find. The new release was highly anticipated.
Cowardly Lyn’ is a frosty gold with gold glitter. Normally I don’t go for frosty polishes, but I really like this one. Think it’s the glitter that makes it so lovely. It takes several layers to get opaque, I wore both this and it’s cousin, the silver The Ten Man, with VNL (visible nail line). But despite this and the fact that it is frosty I like it
Coats: 2 Orly Armor, 1 coat CND Stikey, 3 coats CL and 1 Nubar Diamont.
Light: Daylight, overcast.
My christmas mani, poorly excecuted nail art:
It is not the most pretty nail art and I used ages doing the stripes. I did not have a pink nail art pen and mixed the Misa Heaven White and the red nail art pen to get a pink. I have all the equipment for great nail art, but will let it rest for now – leaving it up to the experts
Coats: 2 Orly Armor, 1 coat CND Stikey, 3 coats Misa Heaven White, 1 coat Misa Sugar Daddy and 1 Nubar Diamont. Stripes are made by red and white nail art pen.
Light: Daylight, overcast.

Oh how I love thee DSM This is one of my favorites of polishes to come out in 2009, and is in my top 20 of all time! The pictures came out slightly darker than it is in real life. Pictures are taken in overcast weather.
Misa is a great brand, with great wear and the more I try them the more impressed I get.
2 coats Orly Armor, 1 CND Stickey, 3 DSM and 1 Nubar Diamont.
