Misa Road Warrior

Today is a special day, so today's a day for a special polish. In honor of Leap Day, here's one of my very favorite old duochromes:


Misa Road Warrior. This is one of my favorite polishes of all time, and for good reason. Just look at it. It's awesome. It's a duochrome (yes, yes, multichrome, whatever) that's quite unlike most other duochromes. It starts off with a red/dark pink pearl flash against a greyed-looking taupe base, but then shifts through so many different and unexpected colors. Pink, mauve, grey, gold, a little green, orange, and finally a light beige/taupe putty shade. Beige in a duochrome. Definitely not something I've seen very often.

The formula is a little runny, the polish is pretty sheer and the dry time is long, but the color is really cool. I'm willing to put up with a long dry time and doing four coats if the color is interesting enough, and this one is. Also:

  1. One of my fave multichromes or whatever as well!! Misa used to do some great ones back in the day. I would pinch myself if they came out with a collection of polishes like this, Foxy and Folksy, Decadent Drifter... Are you reading this, Misa?

  3. It actually does make me think of Mad Max/end of the world/dystopia. Kind of earthy with a little duochrome "chaos." Do I need mental help when I start thinking so much about a nail polish? Just don't tell my boyfriend I'm associating a movie he likes a lot with makeup, he'd kill me.

    1. Haha, I love you for that. I see it too. You're not the only one who over-analyzes colors like that ;-)

    1. Still holding out hope that companies start doing colors like this again soon- I need something more unique than all the plain colors coming out lately
