Just a few from Spring Shades from Misa!

I will be the first to admit when I am wrong.  When I was given the chance to swatch the Misa Spring Collection, I was sure I would hate them.  Frosty pastels?  So not me!  However, I had a Saturday with nothing to do AND the sun was shining, so I thought I would give these a try.  I am going to be showing you three of the six, my "pick of the litter."

Misa Fountain of Youth

I think the reason I liked this shade is that pale mints are usually hard to pull off.  By that I mean the formulas are hard to deal with and they ususally make my skin look beat red (aka "Lobster Hands.")  So I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I enjoyed this shade.  So much that after I finished swatching, I applied it as full manicure.  I definitely plan to pick up my own bottle of this color!
Misa Genie in This Bottle

This shade reminds me of a purple version of Borghese Almondine, I love how mysterious it is!
Misa Touch the Rainbow

I am not quite sure where Misa got the name for this shade, but I love how icy it is.  I think these cool blue tones look good on me.  I have to buy this one for myself as well!

Have you tried a polish you thought for sure you would hate, and ended up loving it?  (Especially those frosts?)  I would love to hear about it!
