MAC Rain of Flowers, Anti-Fashion, Girl Trouble Studio Nail Lacquers

MAC Rain of Flowers Studio Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep violet with pink and blue pearl [with a Pearl finish].” It’s a deepened, subtly warm-toned blackened violet purple with brighter violet pearl and shimmer. It was mostly opaque after two coats, but there was a hint of nail line at times. The consistency is slightly thin, almost watery, but it wasn’t too difficult to work with. Zoya Belinda (P, $9.00) is lighter. NARS Fury (LE, $20.00) is a cream, warmer. L’Oreal The Mystic’s Fortune (LE) is is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / / view dupes.

MAC Delicate, Quiet Time, Coffee Break, Nocturnelle Studio Nail Lacquers

MAC Delicate Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “pale sheer ballet pink [with a Cream finish].” It’s a sheer, light pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. Despite the new formula and brush applicator, this shade still applied streakily. The consistency was thicker and didn’t seem to be quite as uneven once applied as it self-leveled to a degree, it didn’t have a great end result. Zoya Rue (P, $9.00) is opaque, darker. MAC Confectionary (LE, $16.00) is more pigmented. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Tropical, Soiree, Quick Million Studio Nail Lacquers

MAC Tropical Studio Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “black with rainbow multi-pearl [with a Glitter finish].” It has a sheer, black-tinted base with small-sized light orange and orange-copper glitter (no rainbow glitter–wondering if the description is wrong). After two coats, it was mostly opaque, as the formula spread evenly across the nail–didn’t have to play with the glittery bits to get them into place. It dried down to a slightly bumpy/textured finish, but a layer of top coat will smooth it out without having to apply multiple coats. Cult Nails Blaze (DC, $12.00) is smaller in size and is a top coat so it looks somewhat similar if it is layered over black. China Glaze Electrify (LE, $7.50) has larger glitter in a clear base.See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Instant Crush, Saint Germain, Snob Studio Nail Lacquers

MAC Instant Crush Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright coral [with a Cream finish].” It’s a brightened, medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque color coverage after two coats were applied, but the first coat was slightly streaky. Thankfully, the second coat helped to even everything out, so the end result was smooth and even. MAC Please Me (LE, $16.00) is a touch darker. MAC Comic Cute (LE, $16.00) is slightly warmer. MAC Angel (LE, $16.00) is more muted. Rescue Beauty Lounge Pepto Pink (LE, $20.00) is cooler-toned.

MAC Screaming Bright, Silver Dew, Formidable Studio Nail Lacquers

MAC Screaming Bright Studio Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “super glitter gold [with a Pearl finish].” It’s a light-medium, slightly warm-toned gold with a pearly, slightly metallic, finish. It was very nearly opaque after two coats, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, so the polish spread evenly across the nail without a fuss. It dried down slightly faster than other shades in the range. There were very slightly visible brush strokes, but they weren’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. NARS Gold Viper (LE, $20.00) is more metallic. L’Oreal The Statement Piece (LE, $6.99) is more glittery. Revlon Gold Coin (P, $4.99) is cooler-toned. Illamasqua Swinger (P, $17.00) is cooler-toned. Chanel Diwali (LE, $27.00) is darker. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Cruising (P, $10.00) is darker, yellower. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Impassioned Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright warm pink [with a Cream finish].” It’s a medium, orange-coral with warm undertones and a cream finish.

Tom Ford Beauty Coral Beach (03) (LE, $32.00) is lighter. MAC Impassioned (LE, $16.00) was ever-so-slightly pinker in the original form. Chanel Lilis (647) (LE, $27.00) is similar.
