Okay, where do I start? I suppose at the beginning, when I saw this polish on Stef's blog. Missha is a Korean brand, so I thought that this would be difficult to get hold of - turns out I was wrong. I ordered it from eBay on July 22, and it arrived on August 2. Pretty quick for shipping all the way from Korea, I have to say!
They have some of the prettiest bottles ever. Check it out - heart shaped!
What's inside is even better, a magical concoction of teal glitter and shimmer and little bits of flakies. The finish is unreal on this baby.
Dig it up close.
Now, for the bad. I bet you guys thought I raved about every polish I get as though it's the best thing ever. Nope! It just so happens that I've been wearing polishes that are legitimately great. However, applying this polish made me feel like stabbing myself with a spork.
Firstly I'm all like, "What the HAIL is that smell??" Roses. It took me about two hours to figure out that it smells like roses. For some people this might be great... but I don't want to be assailed by the smell of roses the whole time I'm wearing this polish.
Now, let's talk about the brush. This bottle is small, only 8 ml. And it has this giant mop of a brush with a stem that's almost as wide as the opening of the bottle. Hate. So much hate, I can't even tell you. I think the formula on the polish is actually pretty good - I probably could have done one coat, but because of this stupid brush, I made the biggest mess painting my nails that I've made in months. It took me a second coat to even out everything, all the while cursing this mop of a brush.
And the best part of it is... even after all that... I will totally wear this again. It's that beautiful. I just wish it wasn't so hard to put on and that I wasn't wafting through life smelling like roses.
Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to enter my giveaway!
