No Miss's Cape Haze Crypto With Variation

No Miss is a brand new to my collection. However, it is a brand that I have seen on cruelty free and vegan lists when I research. I just never pursued  getting it. When I was shopping at one of my favorite organic grocery stores in the city, there it was. So I had to try one. No Miss is a Florida company. All of their polishes are named after Florida landmarks and towns. My sister lives in Florida. I am there at least once a year. Needless to say, Cape Haze Crypto will not be my last No Miss polish.


No Miss Cape Haze Crypto-This is a frosted yellow green and I think gorgeous for the Spring and Summer. I know frosted polishes are a bit passe, but I like this. It went on a bit streaky, but after a second coat and top coat, I didn't think the streaks were that noticeable.  It wore nicely. I had it one for two days and then decided to do a change up.


First up, I coated my nails with a matte topcoat. I used Hard Candy's Matte-ly In Love. I wanted to have a contrast of finishes.

Using Pure Ice's Splash and a waded up piece of plastic wrap, I created a simple gradation on the lower half of my nails. Splash is a light blue heavily shimmered polish. It is a bit on the sheer side, but that was perfect for what I was doing. 

Using a dotting tool and Zoya's Christinna, I made random dots; sort of saw them as bubbles, I think. Christinna is a sheer pearly (slightly greyed white). I think it has been discontinued, as it is not to be found on their site. 

I don't think Hard Candy makes Matte-ly In Love anymore. But there are plenty of matte clear coats around.

My extravagant tools!
