MAC Muscle Tone Nail Lacquer
MAC Strength: Muscle Tone Nail Lacquer
MAC Muscle Tone Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “pale neutral nude.” It’s a light beige with mostly neutral undertones but perhaps leans a little warm when I see it against my skin tone. It has a cream finish. MAC Sandpiper is sheerer but similar. Essie Brooch the Subject is darker. Rescue Beauty Lounge Sheer Nude is darker.
This polish didn’t want to apply well at all. I tried three different applications, and the third attempt still came out streaky, uneven, and all-around poorly! MAC definitely has a stiffer/sharper brush that seems to make their pale creams more prone to streaking. Even when I layered a really thick second coat on top and tried to minimize how many passes of the brush I used, I couldn’t get it to level and even out. The consistency of the polish was slightly thick, but it didn’t seem so thick that it was going to be problematic (though it was).
