Misa Mardi Gras Collection is a nail polish collection that has something for every nail polish aficionado. It has classic colors, a pastel, cremes, and brights. This was actually my first time using Misa nail polish, and I was very excited to see how they applied, as well as if I liked the packaging, and the brush. If you’d like to see more photographs as well as swatches and color names,
- Blame It On Fat Tuesday is a medium green teal creme. It definitely leans more on the green side than a shade like China Glaze’s Four Leaf Clover, but still applied perfectly and looks creamy and gorgeous on the nails. I love that this shade is bright even though it is a medium green.
- Jester Ate The King Cake is an extremely bright, almost neon yellow creme. When I originally applied this color, I thought it looked too much like a yellow highlighter, and found it unflattering on my skin tone, but once I built up the opacity of this polish, I loved the color. For a yellow, this nail polish was heaven in application.
- Party In The Masquerade is a bright, medium, bubblegum pink. So many of the pink polishes this season remind me of Barbie pink! This color is not unique, but a gorgeous option if you are a pink polish lover.
- Shake It To The Samba is a pastel peachy coral orange. Again, this shade is not entirely unique this season, but still a gorgeous pastel coral option, and it applied beautifully.
- Single and Ready To Limbo was such an unexpected surprise in this collection! I am typically not a huge red polish lover, but this shade was so pretty. It is a shiny and classic shade that will never go out of style.
- Throw Me Something Purple is my favorite of the collection. I was actually somewhat surprised to learn that the name of this shade contained the word purple. While it does have purple tones to it, it is most definitely a bright, medium blue. I suppose at this point, we could get into what some consider to be blue and what some consider to be purple, but nevertheless, this shade is a stunner.
This entire collection applied smoothly without being too thin, or goopy and sticky. I was extremely impressed with Misa’s nail polish formula, and very impressed with how shiny all of these were. When I originally purchased this collection, the six shades were listed as mattes, which piqued my interest. However, these shades were most definitely not matte, and the website listing is an error. I do think that even if these shades were mattes, I would have ended up using a top coat over them to make them shiny anyway.
