Misa We’re Cool. So Cool. This is How Cool. Collection Swatches and Review

press sample

It’s Friday! Woot! That first full week back to the grind after the holiday season is tough. But at least we had FRIGID temperatures in the Midwest to make things exciting! Speaking of cool (groan…cheesy segue), I have the Misa  Winter 2013/2014 Collection to show you today. The “We’re cool. So cool. This is how cool.” Collection (original press release here) consists of three wintery blue-based shades…perfect for the season! As I’ve come to expect, the Misa formula was flawless. And these colors are so pigmented and rich.

Winter Bluesy Blues, is a deep, but bright blue. It has a slight translucence about it…totally creamy opaque, but with depth. The squishiness reminds me of Orly Shockwave (which isn’t nearly as punchy and bright as this Misa). The color is so intense. After I polished my nails, I literally exited The Mani Cave and went into the other room to show my husband. (He was not as enthusiastic as I was…LOL).

This is Icy River. It’s a dense blue-leaning purple. The formula was stellar. My swatch is two easy coats.

And finally, Misa describes Foggy Breath at 3 a.m. as a “cool and earthy blue with a light touch of warm violet.” When I got the press release…I was suspect. How can something be cool and warm at the same time. But I get it. It really is!  This shade is really lovely and unique!

Wear a base coat and polish far from the cuticle line! As with many blues, these can be stainers (especially Foggy Breath!) I’ve said this before, but I believe Misa is waaay under-appreciated as a polish brand. Maybe it’s because they aren’t widely available? But seriously, every one I’ve tried has had a spectacular formula, their colors are on point (um…did you see the Fresh & Fruity Spring Collection last year?!) and I love how their cap feels in my hand.

Do you have any Misa polish? Have you had the same incredible experience?

  2. Danny says:

    I love them all! Blue is my favorite color. Both on the nails and in other stuff.
    These three are amazing. If I had to pick a fave, I would choose Winter Bluesy Blues.

    Gorgeous swatches! I wonder if Winter Bluesy Blues is similar to OPI Eurso Euro. Also, I totally agree that Misa is an under appreciated brand. I made my first purchase when they had a promo in December, and I love the polishes I received. I will say, though, that without a promo, their shipping prices are quite high! ($7.50, I think.) While $7.50 is a very reasonable price for a high quality nail polish, it no longer feels like you’re getting a good value when shipping doubles the price (especially when I haven’t seen Misa in any stores). Maybe this is why Misa is so under appreciated?

    Such rich colors! There all lovely ;)

  5. Jess Scull says:

    I’ve never tried Misa, but I’m dying to! These are gorg!

  6. Rachel B says:

    I bought these when I first saw them swatched by another blogger. They are great colors and formulas. There is something odd about the bottles — you have to screw the cap on really tight or there is leakage. But I love them and plan to try more Misa polishes.

  8. Deborah says:

    Do you have to order this on the internet? Any retailers sell this brand? I am digging this brand and the awesome creamy polishes!

  13. Kimberley says:

    Whoa. This is delicious on you! I want all three! I would be sharing in your excitement, don’t worry! I think this may need to be my first Misa purchase! Thank you :) (Came here via your Pinterest)

  14. Kimberley says:

    (I don’t know if my original comment posted..so apologies if this is a duplicate OMG I LOVE THIS comment..)

    These looks great!
    Ive tried confection section and a metallic dark brown? Both of them started getting goopy after half a year and I had to constantly use nail polish thinner for it… And the wear on them was pretty bad. So I kind of threw them somewhere along with my china glazes that I also did like. Maybe they have improved their formula since then, maybe I just happened to pick up the bad shades. Not sure :S

  19. Kelly R says:

    I love your swatches. You seriously make me want everything.

  20. Jenni says:

    Cool is right! I’ve been having the “blues” myself, but then again…I do live in Colts country! ;)

  21. Claudia says:

    Icy river is a gorgeous purple!
