MAC Bleu Velvet Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “light periwinkle blue [with a cream finish].” It’s a dusty, bluish purple with a cream finish. Unfortunately, I couldn’t think of anything that was all that close to this shade. Zoya Caitlin is much, much darker. Zoya Skylar is a bit bluer, sparkly, and several shades darker. Neither of those two really compare to this shade.

I like the colors MAC chooses for their nail lacquers, but I am, more often than not, incredibly disappointed by the quality and application of their formula–particularly because their price point is higher (it is more expensive than their regular lipstick and eyeshadow!). If you’re going to put a more premium price tag on your polish, you have to make sure your formula is on point. I think that the bristles MAC uses for their brushes are too sharp or large. The formula wasn’t too thick or too thin, and the color coverage seems to be there–if it weren’t for the streakiness. I tried applying a thinner initial coat followed by a thicker second coat, but unfortunately, the thicker coat couldn’t cover all of the streakiness.
