MAC Confectionary Nail Lacquer
MAC Confectionary Nail Lacquer

MAC Confectionary Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “light blue pink [with a cream finish].” It’s a pale, pastel pink with a neutral-cool undertone and a creamy finish. MAC Delicate has barely-there shimmer, but it is similar. Cult Nails Enticing is slightly pinker and has white micro-shimmer. Nubar Pink Lily is a touch pinker but very close.

Streaks, ahoy! This was a troublemaker of a polish; it was all streaks and nothing but. Two coats and there was still so much visible streaking–it wasn’t just the first coat that was being difficult. The color coverage was semi-opaque, as the nail line still comes through quite a bit, even if you overlook the streaky application. It’s such a shame, because I could see someone really loving the delicate look of pale pink–and the sheerness would give it a very soft look. (Of course, it’s not described as sheer.)  The consistency was just a bit watery but didn’t pool along the edges.  I usually get a week of wear out of MAC’s polish with minor tip wear, which is the most consistent characteristic I’ve experienced with the polish.

  1. How disappointing. The color looks so pretty, wish the formula was better.

  2. Even if the application was great, this color isn’t that original.

    You know after seeing this I actually had to get up lol and go get the only bottle of Mac polish I own from a few years back called, SHEER Confectionary. It looks to be the same- just as you say here same color too, it is hard to work with but I held on because I love the soft baby pink! It is such a pain tho. lol
