Misa Dirty Sexy Money is described as a creamy turquoise-green. I fell head over heels in love with this. It's a tad dusty but I love that it leans more green than blue. Formula was excellent and it was completely opaque in two coats. I did find that I had a lot of tip wear within 24 hours. I've been having some top coat issues, so I'm not sure if I should attribute the chippage to Misa DSM or my top coat. Either way, I'm loving Dirty Sexy Money....
I've been on a HUGE Essie kick the past few weeks. Yesterday my best friend and I made our way around Brooklyn and Queens on a polish hunt, since I know that I can find Essie for a more competitive price than the $6 I pay at my local beauty supply.
Here's my haul....and I'm so excited to get through them!
I picked up Essie Boxer Shorts, Coat Azure, Mochachino, Who's the Boss?, Fear or Desire, She's Picture Perfect, No More Film, Cascade Cool, Head Mistress, Armed & Ready, Miss Fancy Pants, Stylenomics and Don't Sweater It. The OPI you see is Swimsuit Nailed It.
I know there are a couple of NY girls here....so here's a breakdown of where I've shopped and pricing which someone may find helpful...
D&D Nail Supply
Fort Hamilton Parkway, Brooklyn
$4 Essie, $5 OPI, $3 Duri ---- Cash Only
I found them to be
really extremely picked over (I've been here once before). On the phone they told me they had all collections up to the Stylenomics collection, but they had only Miss Fancy Pants. A bit of a let down if you have a specific list. I had a list of 10 from newer and older collections and could only get 3 here. They were that picked over. I doubt I will be back.
TQ Beauty Nail Supply
4th Ave, Brooklyn
12/$60 Essie and 12/$72 OPI
Fully stocked! Over the phone they told us Essie was $4, and then when we got there we were told they were sold only by the dozen. My bestie and I split a dozen but because of this didn't get any OPI which was hard since they had the new Germany collection. Staff was friendly and helpful when I asked a question. I'm not sure if they are cash only or not...
Vonita Nail Supply/18th Ave Nail Supply (whitepages/the sign)
18th Ave, Brooklyn
$6 Essie, $4 Color Club, No OPI. --- Cash Only
I didn't buy anything here but they did have decent stock.
Fashion Nail Supply
Grand Ave, Flushing
$8 OPI, $8 Essie, $4 Color Club
I didn't buy anything because I don't find their pricing to be competitive - but it's a quick local stop if you are on Queens Blvd.
All four supply stores were missing Bikini So Teeny, Play Date, Go Overboard and the new Yogaga collection by Essie. I had to pay full retail for Boxer Shorts at Walgreens; I couldn't go home without it lol :)
