Polished | Holiday Ready Nails with MisslynTuesday, December 23, 2014
Christmas is such a fun time for beauty because you can really play with your makeup and be creative. My favourite way to express my Christmas spirit through beauty is by painting my nails in fun and festive colours and designs. This year I decided to step up my game and instead of the classic deep red with gold accent, I decided it was time to make it all about the glitter.
This year I went to Shoppers Drug Mart to hunt down the perfect Christmas nail polish and I found a display from the new brand Misslyn and instantly fell in love with their Velvet Diamond collection. The Velvet Diamond collection is so incredibly unique, it is unlike anything I have seen before. The 12 polishes are intended to make your nails sparkle like diamonds and they really do! The formula starts out like any other polish but as it dries the base becomes matte creating a really beautiful contrast against the glitter. The polish applies really smoothly and is almost opaque in one coat. It also dries in seconds, the fastest of any other polish I have tried. I ended up choosing shade 48 Heart Stopping, a stunning deep ruby red with tiny red glitter. The finished nail is so beautiful and reminds me of the ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz.
