  1. MUG SHOT: Misa Toxic Seduction

    May 31, 2010 by pam

    There’s nothing wrong with Misa Toxic Seduction. Nothing.

    A lot of people like it. A lot of people have declared it their favorite shade from Misa’s Poisoned Passion collection. A lot of people had it on their list of lemmings. A lot of people love it.

    But I don’t. And I don’t know why.

    Misa Toxic Seduction is a dark green shimmer. In the bottle, the color is promising – a sexy deep green with ribbons of silver.

    I should love it, I really should, because I love green polish, I love dark polish and Toxic Seduction is both.

    But on my nails, it’s just dull, dull, dull.

    I did like it a little more when it was wet.

    And I do like it a lot more underwater.

    But I still don’t love it. I’ve only had it on for three days and I already want it off.

    Sigh. Misa Toxic Seduction, I really thought I would love you. And trust me, I really tried.


  2. MUG SHOT: OPI Fiercely Fiona

    After weeks of waiting, my last TransDesign haul finally arrived.

    Inside the box, among other bottles, were four colors from OPI’s Shrek Forever After collection.

    That’s Fiercely Fiona, Who The Shrek Are You?, Ogre-the-Top Blue and Funky Dunkey.

    I didn’t get Rumples Wiggin and What’s With The Cattitude because I don’t normally go crazy over pastels (although I fear that this will change very soon).

    The bottles arrived too late for me to push through with my original plan – I was going to watch the new Shrek movie while wearing Who The Shrek Are You? – but I still wanted a Shrek manicure.

    It was a toss-up between Who The Shrek Are You? and Fiercely Fiona. I love Funky Dunkey and Ogre-the-Top Blue but I’ve worn similar colors before and wanted something different.

    I ended up with Fiercely Fiona.

    If I said the application was a dream, I’d be lying my ass off.

    It’s crazy streaky.

    But I love it anyway because it’s such a happy color.

    And it’s my first time to wear yellow nail polish. (Unless you count that time in college when I went crazy over neon.)

    And it matches the corn I ate at dinner the other night.

    OPI Ogre the Top Blue


    And you know OPI’s Shrek collection is good because even Jill who very rarely wears nail polish couldn’t resist wearing Ogre-the-Top Blue.

    Yes, I love OPI’s Shrek Forever After collection. I might even pick up Rumples Wiggin and What’s With The Cattitude eventually.

    I just have one qualm. Why didn’t they come out with a Gingy-inspired color?

    I love this little guy. And I can totally see myself rocking the gingerbread look on my nails.
