MAC All About Orange Nail Lacquer

MAC Fiestaware Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone orange coral [with a cream finish].” It’s a light-medium orange with a cream finish and warm undertones. It was mostly opaque in two coats (there’s a little visible nail line coming through at a distance). The consistency was not too thick or too thin. Nails, Inc. Porchester Place is darker. Butter London Trout Pout is pinker. MAC Ravishing is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

MAC Scorching Haute and Tropical Nail Lacquers (Temperature Rising)

MAC Scorching Haute Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “super glitter magenta.” It’s multi-sized magenta glitter suspended in a clear base; it has very small sparkle, micro-glitter, and then larger circular glitters. Zoya Carly is darker with a blacker base and less glittery. China Glaze Senorita Bonita is purpler and less glittery. Nubar Petunia Sparkle has a blacker base. Urban Decay Xanadu is not as dense, has darker purple glitter (rather than magenta). SpaRitual Shooting Star has a blacker base and shimmer rather than glitter. It’s opaque and densely-packed with glitter in two coats–and I was a bit surprised, because one coat didn’t inspire confidence it would turn opaque, but it did. That’s actually great news, as it makes it a more versatile polish–you can layer one coat over another polish or wear this alone with two coats. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it applied well while the glitter spread evenly across the nail.

MAC Bleu Velvet Nail Lacquer

MAC Bleu Velvet Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “light periwinkle blue [with a cream finish].” It’s a dusty, bluish purple with a cream finish. Unfortunately, I couldn’t think of anything that was all that close to this shade. Zoya Caitlin is much, much darker. Zoya Skylar is a bit bluer, sparkly, and several shades darker. Neither of those two really compare to this shade.
