I had to update this article, because when it comes to Missha, I have not been able to get information about animal testing. So I want to tell you that this is not meant as advertisement. I am very concerned about animals well being, and have stopped to buy Missha. But these things change, so you should always check the animal organisations lists before buying a product, because those lists are updated.
I have had "Missha HGR 01" on my wishlist ever since I saw pictures of it at the blog Neglelakkmani. I bought it on eBay, and it came all the way from South Korea with only 1$ for shipping, and here it is:
Inside, during the day
Outside, in the afternoon:
Which bird has walked here?
It is getting dark:
Early afternoon, street lights:
In the evening, in low light in the living room, in front of my PC:
Chipping on the thumb after 3 days wear (perhaps after opening a lid on the camera):
The nailphotos above are all with "OPI natural nail base coat", and "Gosh base/ top coat" as top coat.
The nail polish has a lovely scent of roses.
I changed my mind, and decided to also show you the first photos, even though it is before clean-up (sorry), and top coat, and hand cream (please ignore my dry skin). (I was just so impressed by the color, that I started taking pictures right away...) It is probably supposed to be worn without a topcoat anyway, since the topcoat hides the smell of roses. But if you do not like the smell, topcoat can be an option.
The whole name of this beauty is: Missha The Style Crystal Nail Polish HGR 01.
