MAC Apres Chic: Hangin’ Loose

MAC Hangin’ Loose Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “dirty pink nude.” It’s a light-medium beige with subtle warm undertones and a sprinkling of fine creamy white shimmer. OCC Kava Kava is somewhat similar but metallic. Rescue Beauty Lounge Ani is also similar in color but has a metallic finish.

This shade is fairly sheer after two coats; there is visible nail line as well as the rest of the nail comes through a bit. Some might like the sheerness, but it is a streaky little polish at one and two coats. I think a third one could help hide a lot of the troublesome streaks, but at two, it’s noticeably streaky and uneven.  The consistency was a little thick but manageable.  I normally get a week of wear out of MAC’s polishes, with minor tip wear but no chipping.

MAC Surf Baby:  Nail Lacquers

MAC Surf Baby is right around the corner–the full collection hits stores on May 26th (PRO stores should put it out a week earlier) and should start popping up online as early as the 23rd. There are two Nail Lacquers ($13.50 for 0.4 fl. oz.) coming out: Hangin’ Loose (dirty pink nude) and Ocean Dip (mid-tone creamy aqua).

  • Hangin’ Loose is a pale, peachy nude with soft white shimmer. It looks more peach, less nude in natural light than it does in brighter light. I used three coats and was able to achieve opaque color, but two coats does get close to opaque. Formula flowed easily over the nail and applied well.
  • Ocean Dip is a creamy bluish teal. I used two coats to get opaque color coverage. Even after I rolled it a few times, the formula was on the watery side.

my thoughts on the formula: MAC polishes always wear a full week for me, with no chipping, and minor tip wear.  The formula isn’t as consistent as I’d like, though, as some shades are thin, some thick, and a couple of them are watery.  Though recently I’ve had some issues with splayed applicators, both were perfect in these two bottles.
