MAC Soiree Nail Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a is a bright, light bronze metallic-frost with flecks of copper shimmer-glitter. It has a frost finish, and MAC officially describes it as a “sparkly light bronze gold.” While it’s a frost finish, it is also a bit metallic. This is really pigmented–swatches are shown with just one coat–and really easy to work with. It dries down quicker than most MAC polishes. It initially reminded me of Dior’s Timeless Gold, but it’s nowhere near it–warmer, darker, bronzer. Zoya’s Austine is the closest dupe I could come up with, but the finish is quite different, and Soiree is darker.
