Pink Wednesday: Missha PK102 (We Should All Wear Polka-Dots…)
Sorry this post is coming so late in the afternoon! I was falling asleep at the computer earlier when I first attempted to get these photos ready so a nap was needed first. 😛 Today I have one of the polishes I obtained in a giant polish sale from a fellow lacquer fanatic. This one is by a company called Missha. I’m not super familiar with this brand, but I know they are based out of Korea. The two Missha polishes I have come in these cute flower shaped bottles. Though I’m sure once I get close to using the majority of this polish the flower shape is going to become a PITA when I’m trying to get the last bits of polish out of the bottle.
I used Essie Fill The Gap/Seche Vite as my base/top coat combo.
This Missha polish goes by the style number PK102, I haven’t been able to find any other name for it. It’s a plum-y pink shade with silver shimmer. My camera did not like photographing this one very much, haha! For some reason they all look a little blurry around the cuticle area.
Then I decided to play with the dotting tools I bought at Michael’s a few months back. I based this one off the lovely manicure created by Trincess at EmeraldSparkled.com. I think I did pretty decent for a first attempt, though I’ll create more dots and a better pattern next time. Live and learn!
I used Black Out by Sally Hansey, Miami Nice by Essie, and Missha PK102 for the dots. This mani makes me think of the Oliver Twizt remix of Polka Dots by Afrojack. 😀
I didn’t have any issues with this polish. The application was easy, the polish has a nice consistency and is pretty well pigmented. I used three thin coats of polish for full opacity.
You can purchase Missha polishes from their, MisshaUS.com. Their nail polish is quite inexpensive and shipping costs are low. I’m not sure if PK102 is currently available on their site, but you can certainly find it occasionally on ebay.
