Before & After: Misa BreakAway


Today's theme in the challenge is 'Merge or Melt'. There was a bit of discussion about what this meant, but we decided that anything that combines polishes would count. So I decided to do something I've been meaning to do, but that I keep procrastinating on--try out some of my non-glitter toppers. The idea is that the combination of the two polishes merging creates something new, that neither polish is on its own. :)

The one I like and think accomplished this goal was the combination of Misa BreakAway and CND Sapphire Sparkle.

First, here is BreakAway alone (a beautiful purple polish in its own right):

I love the way they look paired together (that's the CND bottle in my hand):

Misa BreakAway + CND Sapphire Sparkle

I love the way these two look together, and they looked even better in real life, with the play of light over them. This reminds me of some of the really expensive duochrome-effect polishes that you can get from places like Glitter Gal, but with a lot more versatility and for a lot less money, lol. I've waited far too long to play with my CND toppers, and I plan on doing a lot more of it!!

Do you have any favorite toppers or combinations? I'd love to hear about them since I don't have very many of these types of polishes. So now it's YOUR turn to enable ME!! :)

Thanks for looking--please check out the other melty-mergies below. :)

Big hugs and Namaste,


  1. Have you seen Cult Nails Deceptive Collection? It's a whole collection of topcoats. Let Them Have Polish has great swatches of it here ( Four of the five just arrived here for me--I couldn't help myself! Happy shopping! haha! ^_^

    1. I have seen them, and they're gorgeous...I haven't had the money for them yet though, so many pretties on my list, sigh. Post up some pictures on the facebook page!! I wanna see what you do with them!!
