Missha: Crystal Nail Polish GVL01

More cloudy day swatches *sigh*.

I've finally got around to wearing a few of my new Missha polishes.  My first choice was always going to be GVL01 because of the purple microglitter combo - made for me really!  Looking at it more closely this polish is actually a mix of silver and magenta microglitter in a grape purple base polish.  It satisfies my desire for sparkliness without being too out there.  The polish itself was reasonably good, albeit little on the thick side and a little tricky to apply at first because of the brush.  I had trouble with the odd stumpy brush and overloaded it, flooding my cuticles initially but once I mastered it I kind of liked the idea of covering the entire nail in two strokes.  On the plus side I'd say this is a super opaque one-coater and only needs one layer of top coat to smooth out the gritty finish.

Now for the cloudy day pics - I wanted Sun! Sun! Sun! to bring out this polish in all its glory but no...

Indoors

...a sunny day reswatch may be called for with this polish!

That's it for now.
