Collection: Misa 2012 Winter, High Society
I know we’re in the middle of spring now, and heading into sunny days—up here in the northern hemisphere, anyway—but Guerlain Black Perfecto got me in the mood for vampies.
I picked up this Misa in my recent NailSupplies.us haul. It’s from a Winter 2012 collection full of vampy shades—I should really pick up a few more!
It Girl (296) is Misa’s version of the classic vampy, browned-burgundy cream (think Chanel Rouge Noir, Essie Wicked, Orly Naughty, and Revlon Vixen). I’ll have to do a swatch comparison one of these days, but for now, I’ll just say that It Girl compares quite well with the aforementioned classics. It strikes a fine balance between red, brown and purple, and is as deep and sultry as you can get without looking plain black.
Application is not too shabby: two coats covers pretty much perfectly. This is fairly unique as some of the other similar vampies require three coats. I think I still slightly prefer the smoother application of Wicked and Naughty, but It Girl holds up well and I love the well-balanced color. It dries to a nice, glossy finish. If you don’t already have a similar shade, this Misa is a perfectly good option.
