No! Yes! More Missha HGR01

Silly, I know, but I thought, I'd show that it is a bit translucent and can be layered, even though it is dense in a couple of coats.

Regarding the formula: very wonderful. Fast drying and best of all, to me, it smells like tea rose, almost minty, too. Perfection!
I think the formula puts it off the radar of faves. It really is beyond fantastic. I wore this on a road trip and it never chipped.

Even wore "the hell" out of the following layer and because the old Sally Hansen "shellac" formula was brittle, after time long cracks emerged, but nothing chipped. Ever.

Gush much?

Here's a shot of the Baroque Frost that I layered it over:

It is a golden olive that needs it's own blog entry, but for now suffice it to say that it's a sheer shimmer needing five coats to really cover. Loads of sparkly shimmer, but so sheer. Franken? Top coat? Still up for discussion!

You still get that tasty foil minty green, but you can pull more yellow out, too:

So it pulls a wee bit more golden with the base. Booya!

Still, you get the blue shift:

Excuse the bubbles, the topcoat was in dire need of thinning.

There you have it! Missha HGR01. Chalking it up onto the pages of favorites in my book.

Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. I bought it yesterdy after checking it out on ebay! Thanks :-) I'm looking forward to this one!

  2. You will love it. It ticks a lot of the "yes" boxes in what a polish should do!

  3. Ooh, that Sally Hansen is great for adding shimmer to frankens... I've layered it over black as well and it's quite pretty. Hmmm... I really need to get back to using some of my oldies.

  4. Yeah, I knew that shimmer had some legs!
