Finally I’m back! Basically my camera connecting lead broke so I couldn’t upload any photos, sorry guys 🙁 Anyway, I have another lovely Cosmo freebie today, one of the three different colours available 🙂 The other day I showed you the bright orange, Misstaken, and today I have a beautiful aquamariney teal colour – Misstique.
Indoors (natural light)
This polish is good to go with one coat, two just to make sure everything’s all even and opaque. Application-wise, it was still a little slow-drying, not amazingly so, I think I’m just judgemental after using so many polishes that dry very fast! It’s not a problem, just one that you’ll need to sit down for 20 minutes to let it fully dry before doing any dent-worthy activities. Also the polish drags a little, so if you just load the brush with plenty of polish (more than you would usually use) then it will glide on more easily.
Misstique dries with a lovely high shine, and really dazzles in the sunlight. I’ve been looking for a polish this colour since forever, because (don’t hate me) I just think that pure turquoises need more green to be flattering on my skin tone! I absolutely love this colour.
Also, looking at the photos, it looks a little similar to Boots 17 Wave
, so I thought I’d do a little bottle comparison for you 🙂 I included Nails Inc. Electric Teal
to show a true teal for comparison too 🙂
As you can (hopefully) see, Misstique is a lot brighter than Wave, which is more muted.
Once again, Cosmopolitan is £3.50, which is pretty good going for a 13ml polish which would ordinarily cost £5 plus P&P; online at Missguided
! So if you’ve been looking for a turquoise aquamariney colour, a bright orange or a hot coral then look no further 😉 and again, Cosmopolitan have included a ‘chequebook’ which includes discount codes and competitions etc., including discounts for NYX and Nfu-Oh! 🙂
Hope you’re all doing well, sorry for my heeeuuuge absence. I’m seeing Jason Manford with Andy tonight, then waking up ultra early tomorrow morning to get to the train station to go up to Keighley for my cousin’s wedding party, so I’m very excited at the mo! Let me know your thoughts on this polish if you’ve picked it up too.
