Misa Working Hard or Hardly Working...Does it Work for You?

I just realized that my last few mani's have been on the dark side...black sparkle, grey/black matte, dark purple sparkle and now grey. When I did some of these mani's, there was some beautiful sunny weather so it's not like the weather is dictating what's on my nails. It just seems that these are the colours that my eye is gravitating to lately so I hope these dark mani's aren't boring you!

This is the mani I did a couple nights ago. Base is Misa Working Hard or Hardly Working; two coats.

While this grey is a good neutral base for stamping and I would consider using it again, I had a hard time managing the brush for the application. I'm surmising I just got a bottle with a bad brush as I've used Misa polishes several times before and never had a problem.

Stamped with Konad black and white special polishes using IP Big SdP I.

Just to be a little different, added LA Girl Glitter Addict Uninhibited on the thumb. This is one of the polishes included as part of my current giveaway here.

Just before topping the mani off with SV, added accent dots using the black and white special polish.

Here's a rare pix of my right hand. Just thought I'd share as its a slightly different look.

So does this mani work for you? lol! It does for me!

It's getting down to the wire for my giveaway which ends on October 1st. If you're interested in checking it out, please go here!

Thanks for looking!


  1. This is beautiful!

    I'm loving that Misa color, that sucks you had such a bad time with it lol.

  2. Oh how I love this mani! The colors are so nice together and the design is awesome!

  3. Very nice! I love the alternating stamp/dot colors. I'm still undecided about black glitter, but it's growing on me. :)

  4. LOVE the contrast on this, it's great!

  5. KarenD: Black glitter is your friend! LOL!

    I really like the different funky, edgy feel that it brings to a mani. Maybe start with less chunky glitter like WnW Tangled in My Web or NOPI Pitch Black Glimmer which has holo sparkle added to see if you change your mind!

  6. The combo of this mani is amazing!


  7. Lovely mani! Loving the black glitter. Please let me know where you got the black glitter polish. I live in Canada also, if there is some shop that sell them please let me know.

    Thank you.
