Crown vivid colour with the Misa Queens of Summer Collection that has a pop of colour to make the mercury rise!
Be a queen for a day…or more! 😉
From a sweet peach to a bubblegum pink, the Misa Queens of Summer Collection has brilliant shades that spell summery vacation!
As expected, the Misa formula was wonderful to paint with, and I used only two coats of colour for all the quick swatches. The nail polishes were pigmented and smooth, and as you can see, they are glossy on their own. (However, to maximize your manicure mileage, it’s always a good idea to wear a base coat and a top coat.)
This collection is available to purchase from the Misa Cosmetics website and Trade Secrets. (If you order from the Misa website, you can get free shipping on orders over $30 USD when shipping to Canada or the United States.)
Check out the Misa Queens of Summer Collection press release that I published earlier for the details on this collection, and view the rest of this post for collection swatches and bottle shots.
The Misa Pastel Me All About It Collection for Spring 2016 contains a slew of soft shades to make your nails whisper oh-so-sweetly. But, as you can see from my collage above, there’s one colour that can’t help stealing the limelight!
Typically, pale hues tend to be streaky, but I was incredibly impressed with the formula of all of these because even the lightest shade was extraordinarily pigmented and streak-free!
I applied a thin first coat, and I was surprised how well it covered right off the bat. Then, I added a second coat out of habit.
The Misa Pastel Me About It Collection gets a solid A+ on the beauty report card because they all apply like a dream with minimal effort needed.
Their formula is forgiving, as it remains wet enough, so you can run your brush over the same area several times to ensure that you get even coverage and achieve your best manicure!
Tiger Lily (coral) and Fairy Dust (periwinkle) are my two favourites because I enjoyed the contrast against my skin.
This collection is already available to purchase from the Misa Cosmetics website and Trade Secrets. (If you order from the Misa website, take advantage of their offer for free shipping on Canadian and US orders over $30 USD!)
See the rest of this post for my swatches of all six colours, as well as bottle shots.
The Misa Queens of Summer Collection crowns nails with reds, oranges, and pinks that call to mind beach frolics and rooftop patio soirées!
Kick off your flip flops, paint your toenails with popsicle and sorbet shades, and unleash your inner goddess with colours that take inspiration from popular historical females.
Officially launching on June 10 in Canada and the United States, the Misa Queens of Summer Collection has already hit the shelves earlier in the Middle East and the European Union.
You’ll be able to find them on the Misa Cosmetics website later, and they’ll probably turn up at Trade Secrets.
(By the way, Misa Cosmetics’ website offers free shipping on Canadian and US orders over $30 USD!)

Misa The Grass Is Greener on My Side is one of my first Misa nail polishes, if not the first Misa nail polish that I’ve ever purchased. So it only made sense, nickels, and dimes that I showcased it on the blog finally! (Hehe, I couldn’t resist the ‘cents’ pun.)
Back when I first purchased this lacquer, I was most likely heavily into purples (my first nail love), yet this bright turquoise called my name.
Since then, greens no longer just call me. They scream at the top of Mount Everest, hit gongs by my bedside, and think they’re cute when they bang pots and pans with wooden spoons on Saturday mornings. 😉
Aside from the colour, which I’ll get into later in this post, the name “The Grass Is Greener on My Side” appeals to me because it’s a wonderful reminder that, despite societal farts in our faces telling us that we’re not good enough, we should appreciate what we have.
Those who badmouth others, spread falsehoods behind their backs, and exert energy on negativity make me really sad, and I don’t want to invest in any prime real estate with people who play mental Monopoly. Pass Go, and leave unnecessary negative thoughts in Jail. This isn’t your Park Place.
While digging through my nail-polish drawers, I came across Misa Girls’ Night Out, which I wore and reviewed in a post from 2011.
When revisiting this nail polish, I also learned that I have changed a bit. My perspective on pinks has softened, and I definitely can now appreciate saturated pinks more than before and also figure out which pinks suit my skin tone more than others.
Back then, I remember being wildly impressed with its flawless formula. Fast forward four years! I was curious to see if it thickened over time, or if it remained as incredible as before. (See the rest of this post to find out how it fared this time around.)
Miss Girls’ Night Out is an oldie, but a goodie, and even though summer is drawing to a close, it doesn’t stop me from whipping out bright shades to suit my mood!
I feel like Misa nail polishes are unfortunately overlooked, but I have had great experiences with them, and I’ve got plenty of their lacquers in my stash from back in the day. (Expect to see more reviews of this brand on here. They deserve more attention!)
Pretty recently, I asked on Twitter if any of you had suggestions for nail-art designs to do on my friend.
I got a lot of great suggestions, but I settled on a simple gradient as well as dots.
Here’s the Glitter Manicure…on a MAN that I created!
Haha, originally, I was thinking about making this manicure more masculine, but as I started painting, it ended up being girly. 😉
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.
