Misa Decadent Drifter and a Subtle Orly Sparkler

Good morning, fellow polish phobes! Today is a busy day for me as I do Volunteer work on Thursdays and my darling daughter has a Doctor's appointment. Therefore, I don't have much time to post or read all of my favorite blogs until later, but that will give me something to do this evening to relax! I must add, I have really been enjoying everyone's much knowledge and creativity out there, so I thank you for the reading pleasure and pretty pictures. I'm going to do tomorrow's post on some lesser-known and seldom talked about polish brands, so I have been going through my stash looking for some of those. In doing so, I've realized two things: I really need to organize my stash and, I have forgotten about so many lovely polishes! I wanted to share with you a couple of pictures/polishes I came across that I'd forgotten about, as they were pushed to the back. The first is Misa's Decadent Drifter, a subtle, yet stunning pale blue with a pink and gold cast duochrome. To me, this is the shy cousin of Misa's Dirty Sexy Money. As usual, the application is flawless, as I've found every Misa to be thus far. The other one I wanted to share is Orly's Shine on Orly Diamond. I love glitter and bling, but for adding just a bit of sparkle to any base color without having your nails scream "Look at me!", this is a great choice. It's shown here over Nicole's You Go, Girl. In the bottle, as you can see in the photo, it is densely packed with millions...well, maybe not millions, but alot of tiny colored particle bursts (click on the picture for the intensity!). Once applied, it is simply a beautiful little addition of sparkle to your manicure. It is less glittery than I anticipated in looking at the bottle, but a welcome addition to my collection of layering polishes. Check out Brooke's blog, getchanailsdid, as she mentioned that a tutorial for all of us Konad-challenged ladies was in the works. Thanks, Brooke, for helping us out with this!


  1. Thanks for the shout out! I hope I do a good job of it!! :)

    That Orly Diamond one looks right up my blinging alley :)

  2. Those are very pretty colors. And I like the layering effect. That's probably one of my favorite things to do with polish,lol!

  3. I love Misa polish! Decadent Drifter is a pretty shade. I have so many polishes I haven't tried yet. I just re-organized them by shade. That took a long time. I just bought a Sterlite 4 drawers on wheels to put all the polish in. It took forever to organize. The two back wheels fell off and the plastic cracked on the bottom. Too cheap and not sturdy enough. That happened as I wheeled it to my bedroom.

  4. lol - sorry but I just had to laugh at Lucy's poor story! I bet that sucked gf!

  5. Brooke and Velvet~I was pleasantly surprised by the Orly. I expected more bling but actually, I like it's subtle sparkle!
    Lucy~I organize by shade as well, works better for me. I had to laugh with Brooke...not at you, of course. I can just picture you all happy and triumphant going down the hall to your room and everything starts falling apart...the visual seriously made me lol! I hope it works out for you :)
