A mini Missha haul

I've been sticking faithfully to my P10P and as of today I've only got two more empties to go *pats back*.  Even though my ban only applied to makeup I tried to stay away from hauling nail polish for as long as possible too but I cracked a little while back.  I was out shopping with my Hubby in suburban Box Hill a few weekends ago when I spotted the sole Melbourne located Missha store.  Missha is a Korean cosmetics brand which I don't know much about so curious me had to check it out.  I didn't dare go near any of the cosmetics but made a beeline for the nail polish and came away with four bottles.  I did spot some amazing chunky glitters but went for the safer options this time.  It just means there's a reason to go back!

The individual colours are not very descriptively titled with their generic codes and numbers so I'll add my little explanation for each:

Lucid Nail Polish VL04
Grape purple with gold sparkle

Lucid Nail Polish SV02
Gunmetal grey with silver sparkle

Lucid Nail Polish CR03
Peach cream with pearl shimmer

Crystal Nail Polish GVL01
Magenta/silver micro-glitter in a purple base

As the weather was sunny yesterday I did some quick tape swatches to get a good indication of the colours as they'll appear on the nail.  These are the widest swatches I've ever done because the brushes are surprising wide and stumpy, so the real test will be application on the nail.  In terms of colour I'm really happy with all of these shades, but especially in love with both of the purples!

Swatched L - R:
VL04, SV02, CR03, GVL01

Have you tried Missha makeup or nail polish?

Until next time.

  1. Geez I havent been to Missha in ages. I used to go love their eyeshadows and face powders, and at a great price too. When your P2P is over you need to pay them a visit again as the quality of the makeup is definitely great for the price.

    1. I'll definitely go back and check out the full range next time. I'll just have to convince my hubby it's time to go back to Box Hill for a lunch of pot sticker dumplings (and then the shopping)!

  2. i like their bb cream. GVL01 looks amazing! i bought one to try a couple of months back. the formula is so thick! and the brush is quite strange.

    1. I've heard great things about Missha bb cream so I'll check that out. I know what you mean about the nail polish brush - it's so weird, I don't know how it's going to go applying it on the nails...

    1. A big Yay for purple - I can't get enough of it! :)

  4. love that peach and gunmetal :)

    1. Thanks Lucy, I don't have many of these sorts of shades so I'm looking forward to wearing them too. :)

  5. I like Missha nail polish too! I only have ONE, but I really like the flat applicator brush and I remember the formula being quite thick!

    1. This sounds like it's going to be a one-coater!
