NOTD: Misa The Great Green Whatsit


A couple of days ago I did a review of some Amour glitters, and the base polish I had on what Misa's the Great Green Whatsit. My original plan was to do some stamping on it after I wore it for a while, but when the glitters came, I couldn't resist trying them out. But, this is still a really stunning polish, so I wanted to show you the swatches even if I didn't get to stamp on them.

The Great Green Whatsit is from Misa's Surreal Escape collection. It's an understated, but beautiful duochrome that shifts from a pale blue with medium blue edges to a lovely avocado-ish green. It also has a very small spray of micro-glitter in it, which makes it that much more special:

Look at that duochrome shift and that pretty glitter

And in case you missed it, topped by Amour's Starlet Night, Blue Night, and Relax :)

Misa does some really beautiful things with duochromes and subtle glitters that I really love. I don't see people talking much about this brand, and I think that this might be because some of their polishes look a bit boring at first site. But the ones they get right, they *really* get right, and do them like nobody else, in my opinion, and for a very reasonable price. I get mine for $3.75 on Transdesign, and I haven't had one yet I didn't like (great, I just jinxed myself, lol!). They have a new collection out, the Wanderlust Fall 2012 collection, which is currently available. I've ordered a few of these, and will report back as soon as I get them!

I should also mention that the formula on this was good, and I used three coats to make sure I got full opacity.

The only problem I have with this polish is the name! Seriously, I know they were going for a theme within the collection, but there HAD to have been a better option. :)

Thanks for stopping by! :)
