MAC for Gareth Pugh: Inert Nail Lacquer

MAC Inert Nail Lacquer ($23.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is described as a “creamy mid-tone greyed nude” with a cream finish. It’s a neutral light-medium gray with a cream finish. It’s mostly opaque after two coats, but the consistency of the formula is on the thicker side. It’s not quite goopy or gloppy, but it’s just a few steps before it. China Glaze Pelican Grey is similar but a little grayer and has shimmer. Zoya’s Dove is also grayer but has a cream finish.

Just to reiterate, this comes in a square glass bottle compared to MAC’s rounded jar, and the cap is a glossy black rather than a rubberized black. These are slightly smaller (0.30 vs. 0.34 fl. oz.) and $8.00 more because of the “couture” aspect of the launch. Though I have not tested the polishes specifically from this collection, MAC’s nail lacquer formula generally wears for a week with minor tip wear but no chips.
