MAC Deep Sea Nail Lacquer

MAC Me Over: Nail Lacquers

MAC Me Over Nail Lacquer ($15.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) comes in four limited edition shades: Deep Sea (deep teal), Fatigues (army green), Purple Majesty (deep purple), and Quiet Time (beige nude).

The formula on Deep Sea and Purple Majesty were good overall–they weren’t too thick or thin, and I was able to get opaque color in two coats and had no streaking or bubbling. Both Fatigues and Quiet Time have thicker, almost gloppy, formulas, but both need more than two coats for opaque color–and a thick formula like the one here makes three coats more frustrating. Quiet Time had streaking issues, and the additional layers did not seem to minimize them at all. Given that I just received these, I did not conduct a wear test with these particular shades, but generally, MAC’s nail lacquer formula lasts around a week on me with minor tip wear but no chipping.

B-
Deep Sea and Purple Majesty are worth checking out, though the latter is more dupeable by a wide variety of brands. Fatigues is less problematic compared to Quiet Time, but both have thicker formulas and less pigmentation than expected.

  1. Wow! fabulous! all of them look amazing :)

  2. Fatigues is a green that’s totally up my alley! Thanks for swatches these polishes. :)

    MAC is just a sea of mediocre nowadays, isn’t it.

    The only thing that excites me are the fluidlines. IF I COULD GET THEM IN NORWAY, THAT IS.

  4. Deep Sea looks quite pretty, but the rest of sort of meh at best.

    Thanks for the swatches!

    I would have bought Purple Majesty if it was actually purple. But it’s not, and I already have China Glaze Urban Night, so I won’t be getting any of the polishes from this collection.

    The Deep Sea and Quiet Time colors are nice.

    Purple Majesty looks just like OPI Mrs. O’Leary’s BBQ…….my favorite color. I’m wearing it now and when I hold it up to the screen, the color looks identical.

      There are a # of polishes that remind me of this shade – I also thought of Mrs. O’Leary’s BBQ also as you did.

    Haha, your nails are so shiny that in some of the pictures I can see your other hand holding the camera! Neat. xD

    That being said, I wouldn’t pay for any of these.. they look good on your nails, but none of the colors particularly stand out to me, and with streaking issues and whatnot, it just isn’t worth $15 for me. :P

    Would adding a couple of drops of polish thinner to the gloppier ones make a difference? Does anyone have any experience with that?

    Purple Majesty is pretty hot, although I’m sure it’s dupeable.

    How were the brushes with these? The only MAC nail polishes I own are the duochromes from Venomous Villains and I found the brushes on those splayed a lot and made neat application tricky, so I’m kind of wary of MAC polishes…

    • I didn’t have any splayed brushes, though the general shape/length is the same!

        Thanks :) I think I will probably be skipping these as it’s a lot to pay for a nail polish that’s less than spectacular or unique. I can probably pick up something similar for cheaper.

    These actually look really pretty. Deep Sea is gorgeous, but it seems too similar to Blue India from the Liberty of London collection. Thank you once again for all of your helpful swatches & reviews!

  12. Hend

    Quiet Time & Fatigues are soooo faaaaaaaaaaaab !!!

  13. meme

    Nothing at all unique here. But that’s OK. Many folks including me have a chipping problem with MAC polishes.

  14. Besides the nude color polish the rest look like the OPI Touring America polishes – which are much cheaper!

  15. Oh wow, these are all so gorgeous! I want them all… Uh oh!

  16. jaspreet

    sexy colors

  17. Ms. Z

    Thanks! They are beautiful.

    Deep sea looks lovely, as does Fatigues – not so sure about the application issues though. Mac charge too much for their polishes – I am not sure that the quality warrents the price. Stupidly I do buy unique shades still.

  19. Ive been loving Quiet time!!! Favorite nude color ever :)

  20. Avatar of Andrea Andrea

    Is Purple Majesty similar to Vintage Vamp?

  21. Really liked Deep Sea and Purple Majesty, but found Fatigues a problem – the colour is lovely, but the one I had was thin (I live in the UK, so it might be different from the one available in the US) and even with two coats, streaks are visible, even at a distance.

    I have had problems recently with nail lacquer brands I’ve used for a while – the new Estee Lauder from this year and most recent YSL haven’t been as good as earlier ones.

  22. Really like Deep Sea, but they do seem to repeat – beige followed by beige, dark blue followed by dark blue. Their nail colours are not as exciting or varied as their eyeshadow colours.
