Here are a couple Misa polishes I got recently. I really like Misa in general, though I wish I could see them in person (my friend got these for me from Transdesign).
Misa Got it Made in the Shade - 2 coats. I bought this because I read somewhere it was a dupe for Essie Da Bush / OPI Stranger Tides but slightly more opaque. It still felt very thin and sheer going on, but not nearly as thin as the OPI.
Comparison: Misa Got it Made in the Shade and Essie Da Bush - 2 coats of each, I think the Misa is a tiny bit more opaque, but it doesn't really make a difference. Both names are kind of dinky, though. I purged OPI Stranger Tides a long time ago, but I think this Misa is closer to the OPI than the Essie (which is a little bluer, on me, although they look identical in this picture LOL). I think I will be purging the Essie :O!
Misa Catch a Flick - 2 coats. I got this one because I read it was a dupe for OPI Mermaid's Tears, which I loved, but I can rarely stand OPI bottles and prowide brushes these days. I'll only keep an OPI if it is "OMG UNBELIEVABLE UNIQUE AND AWESOME", so I'm trying to dupe all the cremes I like and stop buying their seasonal collections. The formula on this one is really nice, I think I will keep it!
Comparison: Misa Catch a Flick and Zoya Bevin - 2 coats each. Since my purging cycle is greatly accelerated these days, I already sold my bottle of OPI Mermaid's Tears on my blogsale earlier this month LOL. I had purchased Zoya Bevin hoping to get rid of the OPI, and just decided to purge the OPI and live with the difference from the Zoya. However, when I look at this comparison and the one I did for OPI vs Zoya, I think the Misa really is super close to the OPI. Anyways, now I need to decide if I want to keep or purge Bevin.
Sorry for the lack of posts recently. I have not been buying much nail polish at all. I'm not finding many of the seasonal collections very interesting; is anyone else feeling the same way?
