Misa Nail Lacquer in Dirty, Sexy, Money

Misa — Dirty, Sexy, Money (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: Misa, Spring 2009, Living On the Fast Lane

I’m disappointed in myself because haven’t reviewed a Misa polish in a while. Misa is, along with Essie, Illamasqua, and Zoya, one of my favorite nail polish brands. The formula is so consistently good!

So here is one of my very favorite Misas: Dirty, Sexy, Money (197). I’m unsure whether the money is being described as dirty and sexy (which seems to make the most sense), or, due to the placement of the comma, money is simply being used as an adjective along with dirty and sexy, à la Swingers [Warning! NSFW: profanity]. But Misa occasionally releases awkwardly named polishes: Date Nights to the Twilight. Forgive, Forget, For Me I Will. Umm…Ur Too Delicious. Huh?

Anyway, whatever the name means, Dirty, Sexy, Money is a midtone teal cream. That’s pretty much it. Not too bright, not too muted, and just right. It applies very smoothly and self-levels; two coats is required for full opacity. This is one of the few polishes that I want to back up.

  1. I got one of these (Red Potion – so I didn’t realize there was an Alice theme, so cute!) in an Ipsy bag a while back. It’s pretty nice. I was quite surprised 🙂 Great review!

    Thank you so much! I prefer these now over the OCC lip paints. They are just as vibrant and stay put for hours, plus I can get five of the J.Cat lip paints that will cost me the same amount for one OCC Lip Tar.
    Sorry for the delayed response, some of my comments end up in spam so I don’t know if you get when my responses when I reply back. My apologies. Xo.

  2. Oooh I too, love Misa. I wish they got more recognition. Do you like Misa too because of their square bottles?! 😛 And yes, this shade is so… money. 😉 Yeah back it up!
    One of my favourite shades is called Live Without Knowing:

    I wish they were more readily available – I buy mine online.
