Misa — Sunrise Dew (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: Misa 2014 Fall, Warm Days

Here’s another Misa, from my haulage late last year.

It’s a lesson to me to do a little research before I place orders, because it turns out that Sunrise Dew is a matte! I hate mattes! Hahaha—don’t get me wrong—I like the look, but it always drives me batty to feel the matte finish on my nails. It’s like hearing nails on a chalkboard, or metal clanking against metal.

I will admit, however, that Sunrise Dew is a bit smoother, and therefore is not as horrible-feeling to me as some other mattes are. This one I can actually sort of stand. Kind of. Well, I slapped a shiny top coat over it, anyway. But I did take the swatch shots before I did that!

Sunrise Dew is a pale lavender heather packed with superfine frost. Possibly due to the matte finish, it doesn’t have the crazy streakiness that many frosts have. Under certain lighting, you can also see that the shimmer has a slight iridescence. Very pretty, if a bit subtle.

The formula was excellent, and two coats was all I needed for full coverage.

I couldn’t quite capture it on camera, but as I mentioned before, in certain lighting there is a hint of iridescence in the shimmer.

  1. I’m not a fan of mattes either. I always unmatte them. Also, not having a topcoat on a mani is just asking for trouble. This is 100x better with the topcoat! And yes, this is a “me” shade. 😉
