Over Christmas, Sara sent me another nice package of goodies. I didn’t film a video of the items because I got caught up in all the holiday stuff and didn’t think about it actually. I do have a post coming up of the rest of the products I got in the box, but I thought I’d just give a little teaser with these polishes.
Misa is not a brand that I have ever tried, nor have I ever seen in them stores. I have seen many bloggers write about them though and generally have a good opinion of them so I was very pleasantly surprised to find them in my Christmas box.
I actually don’t even know anything about their collections or their line, so I can’t go into detail about when these polishes were released and if they were limited edition but I’ll do the best I can with what I do know 🙂
There were 5 Misa polishes in the box, all in a range of colors that I’ve been reaching for lately, which is convenient.
Swatches are after the jump!
Grey Matters is a light neutral grey with a silver sheen in the bottle, but swatches as a light neutral grey with black speckles that shine when you tilt the nail. As winter leads on, I foresee myself wearing this for a good week. Just to match the sky and my mood that school has started again lol.
The formula on this was great. It was opaque in 2 coats and didn’t streak at all or apply patchily.
Quirky Smile is a shimmery ultra-marine green-blue. Very ocean-y and mermaidy. It swatches very true to bottle color. This needed 3 coats I found to get to full coverage, although 2 thick coats would also get you the same result. Formula was pretty on par with the rest, it was just on the thinner side (not in a bad way).
