Missguided Splash - New Polish Collection Swatches & NOTD

A while ago, I posted a Cat inspired mani I had done using a nude polish by a company called Missguided . Missguided is an online shop "which provides a range of celebrity led women's fashion clothing."
A representative of the company stumbled across my post and posted a link to their blog and facebook page. I was so surprised and pleased!! They then contacted me requesting if it would be possible to send me their 2 new polishes from the upcoming collection, and if I could review them and do some nail art for their blog readers. Of course I can!!! With pleasure!!!

Here are samples of the 2 colours - Misstaken:

I personally find oranges difficult to work with. Maybe it's because I'm not a massive fan of orange polish on it's own. The formula on this one isn't highly pigmented and so I needed 3 coats for full opacity. Although it's a bit on the runny side, application was smooth and I didn't have trouble with flooding.


I loved this polish!!! Everything about it was great! I was instantly drawn to the colour. I have a lot of blues but this shade of turquoise was just so pretty. The formula is great and it's one of those polishes that can achieve opacity with 1 very generous coat (although I used 2 thin coats). The brushes on both these polishes are quite narrow but when pressed, they spread easily and soak up polish well.

I had previously done a laser mani with Misstique and China Glaze Sugar High (which I will show you later this week) but wasn't too sure how to mix both the orange and the turquoise together.

The logo of the company is Peace, Love and Fashion so I used BM07 on the ring finger against some sponged tie-dye and created a heart with some bullion beads. The black tips I then added look like moustaches...Lol:

The second mani I created with these colours was a leopard print. I never get tired of leopard print in all colours, shapes and sizes. I freehanded this one as everyone knows I'm not the best "stamper" to use the BM plate on this!!

Hope you guys like it:-)
