In an effort to help some of you squash the lemming that is Misa DSM, I did a couple of comparision swatches. Unfortunately, IMO, lemmings will failed to be killed with these pictures, but they are good for comparision's sake nonetheless.
First up... DSM and Orly Gumdrop.
Gumdrop on index and ring, DSM on middle and pinky
In the bottle Gumdrop looks very similar to DSM, albeit a little lighter. However, that does not translate to the nail. While Gumdrop has the same dustyness as DSM, the colors are nowhere near close.
So then I decided to try DSM with OPI Jade is the New Black.
JitNB on index and ring, DSM on middle and pinky
Unlike with Gumdrop, the colors themselves are closer, however, JitNB is deeper and more vibrant and doesn't have the dusty/dirty-ness of DSM.
If you are dying for DSM, and don't want to pay $13 for it on eBay, you can consider getting JitNB or Gumdrop, but I don't think it's going to fix the lemming. Sadly, DSM is d/c'd and sold out most everywhere, though a quick search found it on eBay (as previously mentioned) and at Misa's website, though you have to create an account to see the price (though IIRC, it's $7).
Hopefully, this has helped someone a wee bit, though I doubt it. LOL
