Models Own Misty Grey

Hi all!

Although the weather was nice and sunny over here today, I decided to swatch some more Models Own polishes that I got in with various orders. Today I have Misty Grey for you.

Models Own Misty Grey, three coats in daylight. Misty Grey is exactly as the name states - a misty grey creme. Although mist would be less opaque, I think they came up with a name that summarizes the polish pretty well! The polish was a bit on the thick side, but other than that application was fine. I really like these misty, foggy colors. I don't think I own a polish that is a dupe for Misty Grey.

I'm planning on doing more swatching to complete my "Models Own polish database", but life got busy when I started working again.

Thanks for stopping by!

China Glaze Emerald Sparkle

Hi all!

So, first day of the week is over. Did you all survive? I'm going back to work tomorrow so I'll just do a short post before I crash into bed. Short, in text that is. I have lots of pictures of this pretty! I'm late to the party, but since Emerald Sparkle was sold out almost everywhere, I got my bottle just a couple of weeks ago from eBay.

Emerald Sparkle, three coats. I could have done two coats, but I did three because I had to take pictures and the macro mode is evil.. Lol. Emerald Sparkle is a gorgeous green glitter polish. The green glitter is in a darker green base that gives it gorgeous depth. I don't know if I own the 'good' or the 'bad' Emerald Sparkle though, from other pictures it seems to be somewhere in between. Application was great! I was so surprised. Dryingtime was quick, I didn't expect it to be dry so quick. This is definitely a winner for me!

And a little closeup of this beauty:

*insert ooh and aah here*

With so much glitter, it just HAS to be a gorgeous matte as well. So, I applied one coat of Essie Matte About You. This is the result..

This is so hot! I love these kind of polishes matte. It gives a really pretty look, although I like Emerald Sparkle better when she shines :) This is a very deep, dark green. A closeup of the matte prettyness:

Oh so pretty.

And because you all know me, a little Konad to play with!

I used plate M69 and China Glaze Cherish for stamping. China Glaze Cherish is actually a light green polish, but it seems like a matte silver or something. I really like the effect it had in this Konad!

Do you own Emerald Sparkle? If not, buy it! What do you think of this gorgeous polish and the different 'looks' in this post?

Thanks for stopping by!
