MAC Confectionary Nail Lacquer
MAC Confectionary Nail Lacquer

MAC Confectionary Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “light blue pink [with a cream finish].” It’s a pale, pastel pink with a neutral-cool undertone and a creamy finish. MAC Delicate has barely-there shimmer, but it is similar. Cult Nails Enticing is slightly pinker and has white micro-shimmer. Nubar Pink Lily is a touch pinker but very close.

Streaks, ahoy! This was a troublemaker of a polish; it was all streaks and nothing but. Two coats and there was still so much visible streaking–it wasn’t just the first coat that was being difficult. The color coverage was semi-opaque, as the nail line still comes through quite a bit, even if you overlook the streaky application. It’s such a shame, because I could see someone really loving the delicate look of pale pink–and the sheerness would give it a very soft look. (Of course, it’s not described as sheer.)  The consistency was just a bit watery but didn’t pool along the edges.  I usually get a week of wear out of MAC’s polish with minor tip wear, which is the most consistent characteristic I’ve experienced with the polish.
