When Ji approached me with her idea of creating my ultimate fantasy color I was shocked with disbelief. I mean what an opportunity. How did I get so lucky? Even now, looking at the bottle, it seems surreal.
Of course a million ideas ran through my head and it felt like such a daunting task to come up with one shade. One color that would represent me and fulfill a dream. Now I’m sure most of you expected a green from me but I wanted do go a different route. The way I see it, over the past couple years so many amazing greens, including RBL Recycle, have come out that I couldn’t imagine competing.
So I looked at my polish stash and the RBL lineup and came up with a shade I felt was missing from both; a deep purple creme. Ji does cremes like no other so I knew I was playing into her strength. And while I have many purple shades I love, they’re mostly shimmers/glitters. All of my cremes are either too sheer, too red, too blue, too bright or too “almost black” and so with that in mind, Mismas was born.
All I can say is Ji nailed it. Like seriously nailed it. I sent her a few pics as ideas for the color and she got the shade on the first try. It was just a little too pigmented. On round two we had perfection. It’s utterly gorgeous and I am PROUD to put my name on it.
Ji also created a Matte Top Coat to accompany this collection.
Completing the collection is a Matte Topcoat. â€œThe sea of neon brights and â€˜80â€™s styles on the runways left me baffled. Then there was Lanvin, with its gorgeous play of textures in black-on-black.â€
Baek set out to create a truly matte topcoat that not only protected your polish color, but would leave your nails with a rich flat finish, like bisque china. Of course itâ€™s without Touluene, Formaldehyde, or DBP.
The collection launches in September. The polishes retail for $18 and can be purchased online at RescueBeauty.com.
Now head on over to Scrangie.com to check out her creation. A shade she describes as “sparkly, fascinating, beautiful and a bit unusual.”
Steph from PolishAddict.com will hopefully be posting her color for us to see soon as I know she’s been busy and on a blogging break. I hope to have the other blogger creations to show you soon.
What do you think? Will you be picking up a bottle of Mismas?
