Misa turns into "My Bonnie is over the Ocean"

My Bonnie is over the ocean
- Or: Misa meets B.O. and Sinful Colors


This day, I was in the mood for layering! I had this beautiful Misa polish “Like it like that” sitting in my stash of untrieds, and I wanted to try it on. It’s a bright metallic green with blue duochrome.

The formula is great, like all the other Misa polishes I own. It took two easy coats to reach full opacity, and I must say that I could easily fall in love with this green! Drying time is on the fast side, and I didn’t have any problems with streaks or bald spots.

Here it is – without top coat:


Isn’t it just lovely?

Now for the second layer: I chose a clear base packed with silver glitter in various sizes. It requires a bit of fishing to arrange the biggest chunks of glitter on the nails, but it’s totally worth the effort if you ask me. The thing that puzzles me the most about this glitter is the smell of it. It smells like weird glue! :D

Here’s that step, still no top coat:


Now for the final step – a Sinful Colors polish called “Green Ocean”. It’s a light green jelly base packed with green and light blue glitter and flakes. The formula is on the thick side, but it’s easy to apply nonetheless. When it gets a bit older it might need a little thinning, but right now it’s manageable.

After a generous layer of Seche Vite top coat, my mani was finished.

Let me introduce to you: My Bonnie is over the ocean:


Here’s a close up to show you what’s going on on my nails:


And here’s the picture of the polishes I used:



So, do you like this layering? How well do you think the blue and the green go together? Is it alright to actually name your manis?
