MAC Muscle Tone Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “pale neutral nude.” It’s a light beige with mostly neutral undertones but perhaps leans a little warm when I see it against my skin tone. It has a cream finish. MAC Sandpiper is sheerer but similar. Essie Brooch the Subject is darker. Rescue Beauty Lounge Sheer Nude is darker.

China Glaze Angel Wings Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Angel Wings Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “delicate gold dust glitter.” It consists of fine gold glitter with what looks to be some holographic glitter, too–there are little prisms of color throughout that dance and catch the light. All of the glitters are suspended in a clear base. Ozotic #904 has a different texture and isn’t holographic–it just had a (somewhat) familiar look at a glance. China Glaze I’m Not Lion has a similar texture and composition–it’s just a lighter, paler gold. Milani 3D is similar, as it has holographic glitter along with gold shimmer, but it’s more opaque and the gold comes from the shimmer/base color.
