MAC Silly Nail Lacquer
MAC Silly Nail Lacquer

MAC Silly Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright pink cream.” It’s a light-medium pink with neutral undertones–it looks almost warm-toned against my skin tone–and a cream finish. MAC Vagabondage is bluer-based. MAC Saint Germain is also bluer-based. MAC Snob is warmer and slightly darker. MAC Pinkly Fresh is cooler-toned. OCC Femme has a similar coloring but has shimmer.

This was the let down of the four polishes, because it was very streaky and milky on the nail. The first coat was extremely streaky, but a second, even thicker coat did not hide the streaking entirely. It had a thick consistency, so it made getting thinner coats difficult to do and had a tendency to pool along the edges. I had to be really careful to keep my nails level so that the polish didn’t bulge on the edges. It was mostly opaque after two coats. I typically get a week of wear with MAC’s polish formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.

    How do you keep your nails healthy while using so much polish/removers?

  3. I like the hot pink trend! Kat Von D. has a color similar to that pink I was checking out. I may try this one instead :)

  4. Lovely color! Such a shame it was streaky and difficult to apply. Thank God I didn’t spend that kind of $$ to find that out! Thank you for another helpful review :)

    I love pinks but I own exactly two nail polishes from MAC and frankly they are enough to prevent me from ever buying anymore. They are just awful!!!! I’d rather get 2 bottles of Zoya because I know those will make me happy.

  6. It’s really a pretty color but it’s a shame about the streakiness of the application process.

    I love this new pink. Have been going lighter on my nails this year. I’m trying this brand, in spite of the difficulty applying it.
