MAC Triumphant Nail Lacquer
MAC Triumphant Nail Lacquer

MAC Strength: Triumphant Nail Lacquer

MAC Triumphant Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone cool brown.” It’s a medium-dark brown with a hint of gray, and it has a cream finish. Dior Exquis is darker and has shimmer. NARS Bad Influence is much darker and grayer–more of a taupe. Chanel Khaki Rose seemed the clsoest, though it’s a bit darker.

The formula on Triumphant, was a triumph! over Muscle Tone.  The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it covered evenly and easily, while the polish flowed across the nail without streaking, bubbling, or pooling along the edges.  It was fully opaque after two coats, and it dried down to a slight natural sheen.  I typically get a week of wear with MAC’s polishes; no chipping and just minor tip wear.

Great color coverage, excellent formula and flow, and no streaking at all make Triumphant a worthwhile nude to consider.

    Sort of reminds me of that nail color from the Pret A Papier collection. It was called Paper Bag. What do you think Christine?

  4. I first thought it was a bottle of foundation, lol :-) It’s not really my color.

  5. wow this is beautiful! I’m surprised this mac collection doesn’t have all of the products being awful ’cause lately their colletions have been quite disappointing. But I really like this polish and the eyeshadow palette you’ve reviewed. The lipstick look nice but i’m not a fan of the colors,but overall i’m finding this collection pretty nice

    Me too, I thought it was foundation. Don’t see a need for this $16 nude color bottle. If I want a neutral, I’ll go with a translucent or colorless pink.

  7. I haven’t dipped my toes (or fingernails) into brown polish yet. The color never looked quite right on my nails. This looks like a great color for cookie themed nail art. I might not like brown but I have yet to find a brown polish that goes on opaque.

  8. reminds me of milk chocolate. Now I’m hungry -_-

  9. cel

    Looks like foundation hahah
    Okay, useless comment

    So beautiful; it reminds me of a mocha coffee!

  11. Yay for good formula! This reminds me of an Essie shade I used to have. I know a lot of people aren’t huge fans of brown for nails, but I do think they’re beautiful, in their own way ;)

  12. oh man, all i want to do is put some sparse gold micro glitter over this and then mattify the whole shebang! it would look like the prettiest rock a kid ever collected, lol

    This reminds me of Terra from Mac, years ago. They look like the same color.
