Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.40 oz.) is a darkened blue with just the slightest touch of teal. It does not look teal to me in any light–it always reads rather blue to me. Whenever I look at it on my nails, I’m reminded of jeans. This was almost a one coater, though I still ended up with two to ensure it was perfectly opaque. The formula is medium-thick in consistency and applies smoothly without streaking. I love that this color doesn’t turn black even in low lighting.

MAC Style Clan Nail Lacquer (Tartan Tale)

MAC Style Clan Nail Lacquer ($13.00) is a mushroom-y brown with flecks of burnt copper glitter-shimmer.  They’re flakies almost.  This is such a cool polish to see from MAC, and I don’t have any dupes in my stash for this one.  It did apply a little streaky, though, so I recommend using a thin initial coat, followed by a thicker secondary coat–or else two medium coats instead of the thicker second coat for a total of three coats. (I’m wearing two coats in the photos.)

MAC Sly as a Fox Nail Lacquer (Tartan Tale)

MAC Sly as a Fox Nail Lacquer ($13.00) is a rich, darkened red-brown with soft ruby micro-shimmer.  It’s actually quite similar to Chanel’s Rouge Fatale–though it has shimmer and is a touch browner–I’d say 85-90% similarity.  There is something about red-brown shades that say sexy to me; I wonder if it’s because they have more depth and seem less commonplace than more traditional reds.  Two coats for this, and the formula itself applied smoothly and evenly.  The brush seemed a little wonky, more out of manufacturing than design, but it seemed a little splayed and thick.
