Misa - Wanderlust Collection for Fall 2012

Today I have the Misa Fall 2012 Wanderlust collection for you (minus Live Without Knowing).  I love Misa polishes and there have been a couple of seasons now where I have liked and bought their entire collection or most of it  (the Surreal Escape Collection was a recent good one).  A lot of folks aren't familiar with this brand, but they should be.  They put out lovely polishes and are quite affordable.  I bought these lovelies through Transdesign for $3.75 a piece + shipping.

Per the Transdesign website description:

All Season Long With Misa Cosmetics’
Wanderlust Collection
Sometimes you just have to get away. But whether you’re traveling
to far-off exotic locales or simply going for a spin on the town, you
need nails that personify glamour, grace and subtle sophistication.
Enter the Misa Cosmetics Fall 2012 collection, Wanderlust, with six
polishes that offer understated femininity and a definite departure
from the ho-hum. When the desire to explore new horizons hits,
make sure that nails are also prepared for a fantastic voyage.

For each of these swatches I did not use a base coat or a top coat.  All applied very nicely with the exception of Lost to the World, which was a little on the thin and runny side, but still managed to build up nicely by the third coat.

Now for the photofest!

First up is Lost to the World:

I would normally consider a color like Lost to the World to be "snoozeville", but it has that lovely gold shimmer that really gives it a little more interest that your typical work appropriate neutral.  I do very much like it and see myself actually wearing it while out and about.  

Next is Epiphany, which is like CG's Classic Camel on gold steroids.  This one is really unique and very wearable and flattering even against my yellowish skin tone.  

Taking Chances is a surprisingly lovely color.  I wasn't too sure about this one, but it looked great on and is nothing like any color I have in my stash.  It's perfect for October and Fall.  Gorgeous!

 Frozen in Time is a lavender/periwinkle blue color with a hot pink shimmer in it.

BreakAway is a rich royal purple with a gold/pink shimmer.  This one I think is my favorite.

So what do you think of Misa's Fall collection?  Think you want to give them a try?  Well, you should!

Until next time.  ☺
