Misa Grey Matters & Phazers on Stunning

Morning! Hope everyone had a good night! I went and had the most unhealthy yet yummy food for dinner last night! The fairgrounds near me has started doing a food truck night every Wednesday so I headed over there with my Dad. I think I might have mentioned it before...we went a couple weeks ago and got yummy cupckaes off a cupcake truck! It's pretty cool, there was a ton of people there last night and bunch of different food trucks. You might even recognize a couple if you watch the Food Network...The Lime Truck and Seabirds were there! Not surprisingly the line at The Lime Truck was the longest...I need to try their food one day! There was also a waffle truck called waffle-icious....with a name like that I had to eat there! I got a grilled cheese & bacon waffle sandwich...it was so yummy-licious haha!

Today I have a couple polishes from Misa's Surreal Escape collection for Winter 2011. Overall the collection didn't wow me in the swatches I've seen so I only ended up buying the 2 I'm showing you today.

First up is Grey Matter, it's a light silvery grey with black specks. I would call the black shimmer except it doesn't really sparkle...it's a very flat flecked kind of look. I've never seen anything quite like it, at least not that I can recall. I love that this is such a subtle but awesome twist on a classic grey shade. The formula was just okay, a bit on the thick side and difficult to manage. It kept wanting to look goopy...if you get this take your time applying it. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Shade
Phazers on Stunning is a gren/red/brown duochrome with little bits of silver glitter mixed in. I had high hopes for this, I loved it in Scrangie's swatches. On me, I kind of hate it :(. Me disliking a duochrome is a very very rare thing. I like it a bit better over black but I'm still not really feeling this one, unfortunately. This went on pretty sheer, most duochromes are like that so I wasn't surprised. For the index, ring and pinky finger I used 3 coats of Phazers On Stunning alone. On my middle finger I used 1 coat over OPI Black Onyx.





If you like grey you need Grey Matter, you will probably also like Spaced Out...it's very similar just a different tone of grey. I'm pretty sure I'll be buying that one next time I order from an etailer that sells Misa!

I bought these polishes on NailSupplies.us, you can also find them on http://head2toebeauty.com/!

  2. Grey Matter is very interesting...did you notice on your second photo that there is a subtle aqua shimmer going on? Funny how that didn't show in the other two pics of it.... I like it ..it kind of makes me think of either sand or cookies and cream, both of which i like! ^_~

  3. I want a couple of these bad boys, including the two you picked out! I'll for sure try this out over a darker base like you've done here. I love both of these Jen!

  4. I did notice that! I wish it was visible IRL, it only showed because of how unfocused the camera was on that nail. It would been an even better shade if that shimmer was all mixed in also!

    I love Grey Matters! It looks really really good on you :-) Phasers on Stunning is nice, but I am not a big fan of polish that goes on too sheer. It does look good layered over Black Onyx though :-)

  15. thanks! Duochromes are usually the only sheer polish that doesn't bug me, the results are usually worth it! Not so much in this case but other people will probably like it more than I do!
