NOTD: Misa Office Polish-tics and CND Gold Sparkle

Oops, I think MUA is now no longer accessible from work! I know I shouldn't be on there at all during work hours, but it's hard to resist when work is slow! :'( Oh well, here's to increased productivity (and/or increased blog posts through the workday! LOL) False alarm! MUA was just down. *rejoice*!

Today's NOTD is Misa Office Polish-tics (which, is gorg on its own!) topped with CND Gold Sparkle. I experienced a bit of shrinkage from using SV on the Misa. I'll probably thin the SV soon, it's starting to get gloopy again!

I made my last TD haul mostly to grab the rest of the CND sparkle effects, and I am glad I did! I spent a few minutes deciding what to top the Misa with and I'm happy I chose Gold Sparkle. It's a bit more subtle than some of the other sparkle effects, but I think it's a great way to add a little bit of interest without overwhelming you with glittah and glass flecks pew pew.




It reminds me a little of BB Couture Impact Driver, but deeper and with more gold toned sparkles. I can't put my finger on it, but it also reminds me of a stone.

Here's the macro shot, but my flash killed the sparkle somewhat. I hope you can tell that the finish of this sparkle effect is not uniformly sized.


I need to pick up another bottle of WnW Black Creme next time I'm at the drugstore so I can swatch my CND effects properly! For now, this will count as my CND Gold Sparkle swatch :)
