MAC Soiree Nail Lacquer

MAC Soiree Nail Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a is a bright, light bronze metallic-frost with flecks of copper shimmer-glitter. It has a frost finish, and MAC officially describes it as a “sparkly light bronze gold.”  While it’s a frost finish, it is also a bit metallic.  This is really pigmented–swatches are shown with just one coat–and really easy to work with.  It dries down quicker than most MAC polishes.  It initially reminded me of Dior’s Timeless Gold, but it’s nowhere near it–warmer, darker, bronzer.  Zoya’s Austine is the closest dupe I could come up with, but the finish is quite different, and Soiree is darker.

Chanel Riva Nail Lacquer

Chanel Riva Nail Lacquer ($27.00 for 0.4 fl. oz.) is a pale sky blue with ultra fine, barely-there iridescent blue shimmer strewn through the creamier, almost jelly-esque base. The swatches included in this post show the effect of three coats (and thicker ones at that)–I would say that you would need a muted white shade underneath, perhaps, or else four coats.
