Misa 9-5 Bottle & Nail Wheel Pictures

I ordered Misa's newest collection, 9-5 on Sunday, and they just arrived! No real swatches yet, but I wanted to get a quick look at them so I swatched them on nail wheels for now. Quick service, a nicely packaged display box that holds one polish, and a free bottle of their Top Topper Quick Dry Top Coat! My initial thought when I first saw the promo pictures last week was that I was only going to order 2 shades. So much for first thoughts!

I've said it before and here I am saying it again, but if you haven't tried Misa, their formula is one of the best ones out there. While this color palette does have some similar shades available in other brands--Coffee Pick Me Up is very close to China Glaze Channelesque or its dupe in Anchors Away, Below Deck, and surely there's an Essie dupe for Blush Hour--you would be hard-pressed to find a dupe with a formula as fine as Misa.

Real swatches tomorrow!

  9. Awesomeness!!

    I really love Misa, too!

    I think I overlook it in favor of Zoya, and I hope they can get on the ball and kick some bunz on those crazy cool Zoya colors!

  14. Soooo pretty! I agree with the others who commented that they weren't thrilled by the bottle pics but the color wheel made the difference. Can't wait for your swatches! Pretty sure that I'll be purchasing the entire collection.

  15. ah, they are soo pretty! I can't wait for "real" swatches ;) I'm afraid I'm gonna need them all :(
    they are just so perfect, two are little bit edgy, the rest is totally work appropriate, and though I'm a turquoise, sky-blue, green and purple lover (I really am :-D) - sometimes I want nude colors on my nails, quiet colors or "job-interview"-colors *g*
    Misa is great.
    Does anyone know when these will be available?
