Misa DSM, Office Polish-tics, Toxic Seduction

My TD order came in this week and within it held my first Misas!

Misa Dirty Sexy Money - I had been lemming this polish for ages, bought the $OPI dupe (Ocean Love Potion) and promptly fell in love with it. I still ended up buying this Misa though and love it as well.


Comparison: Misa Dirty Sexy Money and $OPI Ocean Love Potion. I feel as though the Misa was a tiny bit greener than the $OPI, but they are pretty much dupes. Good thing I adore this shade! :D




Misa Office Polish-tics - Originally, I was going to buy the whole 9-5 collection, but then I had a brief moment of sanity and managed to keep the rest out of my TD cart. I really like this shade!



Comparison: Misa Office Polish-tics and Zoya Kelly. The closest thing I have is Zoya Kelly, but they are slightly different, though about the same darkness. I prefer the Misa, I think, since it leans a bit more blue.



Misa Toxic Seduction - This is pretty hot. Sorry for the out of focus macro shot; my flash batteries started dying!



Comparison: Misa Toxic Seduction and ChG Emerald Fitzgerald. The ChG looks awful brush-strokey next to the Misa, doesn't it O_o?



I bought a Kindle last week and have been lost in the Hunger Games (by Suzanne Collins) trilogy. Just finished it yesterday afternoon. I loved the first book, really liked the second book, and the third book was kind of a let down, to be honest. I just started reading Room (by Emma Donoghue), and so far it's really chilling. I'm almost a little scared to keep reading it! Amazon has a great business strategy with the Kindle, imo. I've already spent $50 in my first week when I haven't spend money on books in a long time!

Um my point being, I have been so consumed by my reading, that I am super behind catching up on nail blogs and leaving comments! I'm sure I'll have plenty of time at work though LOL. :D

Hope you all had a great weekend!

  1. Love the Hunger Games trilogy, but I feel the exact same as you, the third was kind of "meh" compared to Hunger Games and Catching Fire. They're doing an HG movie, and I'm pretty excited about that...i really hope they do it justice! And I just finished Room...it's a good one, but for some reason, I wasn't too keen on the last half of the book. I don't know, maybe just me...hope you enjoy it!
    Also, I LOVE DSM and Toxic Seduction. I appreciate the comparisons too! May have to pick up Office Polish-tics!

  5. So I'm scrolling down through the post, and come across the pic with Office Polish-tics, and think to myself, "Hmm, that looks a lot like that Zoya color. I wish someone would do a comp." Scroll down to the next pic, and it's like you read my mind.

    I do have Kelly, and while I'm glad you did the comp so I don't end up with two of virtually the same color, I'm kind of disappointed they're so close. The pics I saw of OP made it seem more teal, and I was looking forward to getting it. Oh, well! Back to looking at polish. :D

  11. I'm excited to see the HG movie now too! :D I wonder if they released any information about who has been cast, other than Katniss. Am I fickle for wanting to see who they cast for Gale and Peeta?! Haha.

    I just finished Room yesterday, I really liked it. I agree the second half was not as good, but I still enjoyed it overall. I had to reread about the Fritzl case because it was so disturbing :(

  12. LOL! I'm glad you were thinking of that comparison too!

    Yeah, there really isn't any teal in the Misa, imo. Do you have OPI Ski Teal We Drop? Maybe I will do a comparison later!

  13. No, I don't have that one. I thought it was a bit too close to MAC's Blue India, though darker, so I didn't get it. I have Blue India and Zoya's Kelly, but that's it from that shade range.

  15. I Love Misa Office Politics. I saw you said your "TD" cart was full. I'm sorry to ask a dumb question but what is TD cart? Because I really want to buy a few of these shades:)
    Thank you
