MAC Hey, Sailor: Touch of Red Nail Lacquer

MAC Touch of Red Nail Lacquer ($17.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright yellow red.” This is a brightened medium red with pinky undertones–it doesn’t really look like a yellow-based red on me. It looks just slightly blue-based against my warmer skin tone. MAC Russian Red is a little darker. China Glaze Poinsettia is brighter. Zoya Sooki seems very similar. Butter London Pillar Box Red is a bit darker. China Glaze Hey Sailor is quite similar.

The formula of Touch of Red had an excellent consistency that was thin but not watery; it applied without streaking, but it wasn’t completely opaque after two coats–though it is certainly close. It’s only at certain angles and lighting situations where you can see the white of the nail line. It flowed easily across the nail without bubbling or pooling along the sides.  I don’t have any issues with MAC’s lacquer formula as far as wear goes; I get a week of wear with minor tip wear but no chipping.
