Misa Frozen in Time (from Fall 2012 Wanderlust)

Just got my Transdesign haul in the mail today!

I wanted to show you a quick swatch, since I haven't seen swatches of the new Misas anywhere... although I only bought one:

Misa Frozen in Time - 2 coats




Formula is good; it looks sheer on the first coat, but when you put the second on, you're like "Wait, it's opaque? Huh?"

The colour reminds me of a softer Essie Smooth Sailing (uhhh sorry I can't compare it, I think I just sold mine in the last round of my blog sale -_- Eeek I know, I know, I'm super useless for comparisons these days!!) and the shimmer reminds me of Zoya Lotus.

From the bottle shots of this, I was hoping it would be a bit deeper, something like RBL Catherine H or BB Couture Impact Driver, but no dice. *sigh*

Did any of you make any blind purchases (i.e., didn't look at any swatches beforehand) lately? Hit or miss?

  1. It doesn't look super special in the bottle but on the nail it's so pretty!

  2. This looks very pretty! Is the shimmer only apparent in sunlight? I totally want to purchase this!

  3. It's still pretty! Reminds me a bit of essence A Lovely Secret, although that one's even lighter.

  4. I make blind purchases all the time, usually I'm out and something catches my eye and I don't have time to look at swatches beforehand. Almost always it's a hit or miss for me lol


    This is really pretty though, I like it!

  5. Very pretty! I imagine this is similar to Sinful color Zeus, although I don't have either!

  9. I am now tempted to buy this just so I can compare it to Sinful Zeus & NOPI Back to Reality TV to see if they're triplets. :)

  11. Me too! LOL. I wish Misa would send samples to more bloggers; I would totally buy more if I knew what they looked like on the nail -_-

  15. Hmm you can see it in direct light; it's not totally secret-shimmer. Looks like there is a Sinful Colors and NOPI dupe, if those are more accessible to you!
