Misa Camellia Destiny

Today's polish was a bit of a disappointment. I've only used Misa Camellia Destiny once before (as a base in my pink gradient manicure) so at that time I wasn't all too concerned about the opacity or streaky-ness of the polish. However, today I tried to wear Camellia Destiny by itself. It was just... weird! I don't know how to explain it. The polish is a jelly-like finish and tends to streak a lot. The color is still gorgeous, but wasn't quite what I was expecting. I ended up not knowing what to do with my manicure because I went home this weekend and only took with me Camellia Destiny. What to do?

I managed to find my two Lancôme Juicy Vernis nail polishes. I got them from my mom's friend a long time ago, when she used to give me awesome make-up samples to play with! I had neglected them because it looked like the polish "went bad." I decided (to save my manicure) that I should just take the plunge and try them! Turns out, the bottle was what "went bad," as it yellowed over time. These two are the only nail polishes I have that are in a plastic bottle. Luckily, the polishes are still gorgeous! I don't know the name of the one I used, but it is a gorgeous white/silver glitter, dare I say glass-flecked?

I love Misa bottles! They are gorgeous.

The bottles. See how yellowed they are?? It's the bottles, not the polish!
