Here's the press release behind the collection:
Miss Professional Nail (Miss) announces the launch of its Limited III Collection, “Nailstock,” a colorful tribute to peace, love & artistic diversity. In a world where constant change is rapidly evolving, from economical to technological, spiritual reflection and authentic human connections are more special and sought-after than ever.
When Creative Director Staci Dao wanted to celebrate indie expression and universal creativity, she quickly looked to Woodstock as the gold standard of boho-bonding events. Nailstock’s varied collection of misfit souls features twelve rockin’ shades packed with nostalgic cultural references including: “Gimme Jimi,” “3 Free-dom,” “RV There Yet?” and “I Paint in Peace.”
Rich, earthy neutrals and vibrant, unconventional hues offer something for everyone. The woodsy environment and rainy, mud-splattered moments represent the offbeat nature of Woodstock’s legendary impact. Let hand-painted harmony take center stage and embrace your grooviest self, with nails to tie-dye for. Nailstock will be available at your local beauty supply and online in September.
All Miss products are free of DBP (dibutyl phthalate) formaldehyde and toluene.
You can see from the promotional image below that there are more shades than their last Limited collection (Little Horse on the Prairie), but I'll only be sharing the love for four of the shades shown below: I Paint in Peace, RV There Yet?, I'm With the Bandana and Imagine-Sation.

Now let's hot-box this blog with some beautiful babies shall we? Everything shown under the cut is three easy coats, and everything shown is absolutely loved.
I Paint in Peace has some pretty shimmer. (If you picked up Weed Out the Wimps from Little Horse, don't worry, the two colors are distinctively unique and won't look alike in your collection.)
I think my favorite color in the bottles I got is RV There Yet? The swatches are strange though. In the bottle, the color is much more green. Maybe I'm just trippin' off the vibes of the collection, but it definitely looks more blue in my swatches. Check out the bubble preview for a closer color comparison.
The rich but mellow feeling behind Imagine-Sation makes me want to roll around in a big puddle of it. It's almost juicy, but it's really just...smooooooooth.
Rounding out this sample set is I'm With the Bandana. It almost feels like the afterglow of the collection. That feeling of pure happiness I'm sure Woodstockers feel when the festival finally ends, and their minds are just trying to absorb all the beautiful things that happened. Nice.
Overall, I'm picking up some wicked good vibes from the collection. I'll be ordering a few other colors including Magic Mani Bus (dude!) and Strumming My Nails.
You too can get your colors online now, at the Miss Professional Nail online store.
Right on readers, right on.
