If nail polish in general speaks to me, then green nail polish speaks to me with a sexy Spanish accent that’s accompanied by a smouldering gaze!
Although Misa Phazers on Stunning is very beautiful and tried to serenade me like a hardcore romantic, it was only like for me, not love or lust.
What stands out about this polish is that it has that ‘glow’ where it catches the light and seems to light up like a firefly.
This is exactly the kind of polish that I love to take to the next level with nail-stamping designs.

Misa Phazers on Stunning Review
Misa Phazers on Stunning is a vivacious light green that reflects the light so brilliantly that it looks like you’ve capture green light in a bottle!
When you look at the bottle in person, you’ll notice that while the predominant colour is green, the edges are pinkish. I did see this slight shift on my nails, but only sometimes at just the right angle and in just the right dim light. (I was able to capture a glimpse of this shift in my Natural Light Photos.)
To add the illusion of texture, Phazers on Stunning by Misa also has silver speckling throughout.
This polish is a little tricky for me to categorize, but I’m going to say that it’s a sublte duochrome with micro flakies.
I call the silver speckling micro flakies because when I looked long and hard at them closely, they’re actually irregular-shaped pieces.
At a ‘normal viewing distance’, however, they’ll just look like regular micro-shimmer. This is what adds an unexpected accent to this pretty polish.
Application & Formula
I didn’t fall in love with this polish mainly because of the formula. It was runny and sheer, which made it easier to accidentally flood your cuticles. (If you remember my review on OPI Not Like the Movies, this had a similar formula as that one.)
I used 4 coats, but you could get away with using 3 coats to achieve full opacity.
Final Verdict: 7/10
Since Phazers on Stunning was a green polish, I thought that it would sweep me off my feet, but it didn’t. It’s pretty, but it’s not my favourite green polish.
