Misa Forbidden Lust is a beautiful purple shimmer with predominantly red shimmery sparkles. I was going to use Kleancolor's Milky Way by itself, but it has a clearish base with a slight peach tinge to it, and I don't think it would do too well on it's own. I applied 2 coats of it over 2 coats of the Misa and I ended up with a much richer Milky Way than I would have otherwise. The little foil moons are holographic, although I couldn't capture that in the photos. They are shiny silver, but in different lighting and at various angles, they become little rainbows of light-catching slivers. The finish is very smooth, which surprised me, because I thought the moons might cause a bit of a problem. The only issue I had was trying to fish the moons out of the bottle with the brush, but I managed without too much of a problem. It's a rather different look, but I've always been entranced by the moon and stars, so I rather like it!
My pictures were taken quickly so I apologize for the quality. It's still early yet and it's already in the mid-eighties and extremely humid. It was also very windy and with the high supposed to top out around 95 degrees, I just wanted to get back into the air conditioning!
