Old School Week: Misa Embroidered Emerald

Misa's Embroidered Emerald is one of my favorite older shades from them--duo chrome, a flash of blue/green against a plum background--what's not to love?!!



The shimmer in this one seems to float to the top of the base color, which is a plum tone that looks more purple or more red/brown, depending on the lighting. I'm not sure when this color came out or if it was part of a particular collection, but I picked mine up on eBay for about $10.00. I now notice that it is on Misa's web site here, so I put one in a cart to see if it would work and it didn't say out of stock. I'm not sure if it's actually available, but if you've been hoping to get a hold of this shade, that may work for you.

  2. Various people have said this is a dupe for ORLY Galaxy Girl and UD Bruise. Can you comment on the formulas of any of these? I am not a patient girl so needing lots of coats and dry time is a dealbreaker for me.

  6. Leah, this is a perfect dupe to UD Bruise. I've owned them both and they're totally alike. But Bruise's formula is better. Bruise requires 2 coats (and has no toluene). This one was runny, more sheer, needed 3 coats and has toluene.

  7. I have this and it is one of my top 5 polishes. It is - and I rarely use this word - awesome.

  10. I love these kind of colors :)
    Could you compare to GG? I loved your idea of showing the color differences on the cotton ball you used to remove the polish! It's so smart!
