Miso Happy With This Color was one of 3 pale nude creme shades to be released in the Japanese Collection. This one was the one with the pinkest hue...and it's a barely-barely-there pink at most. It's dusty-antique too, with the slightest hint of lavender. I used 2 coats for photos.
And does this bottle look different to you? Yep, it's different.
It's a black label!! Black label OPIs were from before the dawn of the Big 3 Era. They also have really small brushes. I have tiny nails, and this is one small brush.
I bought Miso Happy With This Color back in 2008 on Ebay. I remember it was in a lot of 3, all the same color. I had to toss one after a couple of years because the lid just would not come off anymore, but I do still have two left. I'm glad of that too. This is one of my most treasured polishes. I mean, hey, it might not be King Tut's treasure, but you have to admit, it's pretty cool! I just think it looks so elegant. You really can't tell where my fingers stop and my nails begin! Is that a hallmark of elegance or creepiness?
And there you have it...a polish that looks as strange as I do. :D What do you think of it?
Thanks for stopping by! And please don't forget to enter my Warm and Fuzzy Indie-tastic Giveaway!!
A polish that looks as strange as you do... You're SO DARNED CUTE!! And maybe it's my phone, but this looks like your mannequin hands shade. Are you lavender?! Lol. I love history, too, especially Civil War history. I'm no buff or anything but I do enjoy reading about it. Oh, and Go Big 3!! ;D Black labels are fun.ReplyDelete
LOL...why thank you. ;) Yes, this is my mannequin hands shade. Isn't that bizarre? My hands are almost colorless, or about as pale as living flesh can get, but I guess there's a bit of lavender-pink in there somewhere. :) My hubby is a Civil War buff too...I've always been an American Revolution/Founding Fathers fanatic. :)Delete
Its a nice nude color! Haha love that you said its as strange as you! :)ReplyDelete
Hahaha...well, I keep stressing that I'm not your normal shade of...normal? :PDelete
I agree with Liesl "Mannequin" shade and I love it! It looks so pretty on you. And I never liked History, but now when my husband tells me things about history, I am very much interested :)ReplyDelete
Thank you! :) Yeah, if you want to suck me in, just show me an old sepia photo and give a halfway-interesting narration, and I'm there.Delete
What a perfect nude color on you! It looks great! It fits you like a hand in a glove as we say here in Sweden ;)ReplyDelete
Why thank you Jezz! :) I really love it. And I have to confess...I kinda love being a strange color, LOL...Delete
Hehe this nude shade is a great match against your skintone! As for that OPI bottle having a small brush... that's really hard to imagine lol. I totally associate OPI with their wide pro brush. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Yun! :) It really is hard to imagine, but I'd have to say that the brush on this polish is the same size as an OPI mini brush...it's tiny!Delete
I really like this nude on you! I think it looks elegant :DReplyDelete
Elegant: 1...Creepy: 0Delete
Thanks Jemma! :D
Hi Melissa, I am so with Essie and Liesl - perfect mannequin hands - or should I say Geisha hands ;-)!!! Whatever - I love it on you and YAY for having found "your" perfect nude shade!!! And who cares about King Tut's treasure if it is about perfect mannequin hands??? Anyone??? I love history too my most favored topic (but I am like a sponge, I like most of history) are the medivial ages as they have formed our European culture so strongly and we encounter the impacts to the day!!! Have a wonderful day and thanks for this wonderful post xxxReplyDelete
Geisha hands!! I love that! :D Makes me seem terribly exotic. I'm so glad to know all these history lovers. <3 I also love European history. :)Delete
This is so pretty on you! I didn't start paying attention to OPI until long after this collection came out. I have assembled most of the Chicago collection from back in the day via dusty hunting and blog sales and swaps and such--maybe I should look for this one next.ReplyDelete
Thanks Karen! :) You can actually find very limited quantities of this on Amazon and Ebay. I think I saw one for $10, which is only a dollar more than OPI now.Delete
It's so cool/creepy that it matches your skin so well! I can't wait to get a black label on my hands! :DReplyDelete
Cool AND creepy? Well, if it worked for Morticia Addams, maybe it works for me! :D Thanks Clare!Delete
This is the perfect shade for a matching nude for you! I go with elegant... it's very lovely on you!ReplyDelete
And that's two for elegant! :) Thank you!! Good to know it wasn't just my imagination. :PDelete
this looks very clean on you. i still have not found my perfect mannequin hands shade yet.ReplyDelete
Thanks Thuy.:) Who would have thought my perfect shade would be lavender? :DDelete
I live in a small town and our local salon has older opi's on sale for 3 dollars and I bought this color today. I'm looking up swatches of my new colors and came across your post. Now I'm excited to try it : ) I just hope the formula isn't too old. It seems kinda watery.ReplyDelete
Hey Sandee! Wow, lucky you for having all that antique stuff right there! I still love this polish and want to eventually pick up another one from the Japanese collection. My polish isn't watery, so maybe yours will be fine too. :)Delete
