Smilla's choice: Misa Lovely Lychee - swatches and review

I while ago I couldn't decide on which polish to wear so picked three randomly and lined them up on the floor. I decided to get my cat Smilla and let her choose for me. The deal was to wear the one she smelled first :)

I put her down in front of the polish line up and she chose Misa Lovely Lychee! (Then she quickly smelled ALL of the three polishes and ran off like her tail was on fire ;) Lol! But she did went for the Lovely Lychee first!)

The other two candidates were Misa Uptown Glamour and Essence I Love Bad Boys.

Smilla in action going for the Lovely Lychee! :)


Type of polish: Cream with some neon qualities.

Color: A very bright, almost neon, pink with a drop of blue in it.

Number of coats: Two.

Formula: Very good! A tiny bit thick but self leveling.

Brush: Very good! No complaints.

Top Coat: Yes. One coat. It dries a bit matte but not as matte as a true neon polish.

Color accuracy in pictures: Quite accurate. Perhaps that drop of blue in it is more visible irl, but it's still a super bright pink!

Grade: 4+/5

I don't think Smilla could have made a better choice for me! This is a marvelous super bright pink polish that instantly puts you in a good mood! The formula and brush are great too! You need a top coat though to make it glossy.

How do you like Lovely Lychee?

  4. Hihi vilken rolig idé, det måste jag testa också med våra katter.

    1. Ja, hon är så fin min lilla gris! <3 Testa med era katter! Vad kul! :D
      Färgen är underbar! Man blir glad av den!

  5. Oh how cute!!! Your cat chose well :) My cats don't like the smell of polishes either, one of them gags if he smells to close to the bottle but he always comes back to smell the next bottle I open, silly cat.

    1. She's good my Smilla! <3
      Sometimes cats are really clever but sometimes they could be really silly too ;) But I love them anyhow <3

  6. Hi pet, Smilla's taste is excellent - what a perfect shade she choose!!! It looks so beautiful on you!!! And Misa is such a great brand!! I would love to see more of Smilla's choices :-)!!!

I don't see much of Nell these days - he just comes home to check his food bowl and to nap ;- P - have a lovely evening and I replied to your mail :-) - Puss, Puss xxx
