MAC Touch of Red Nail Lacquer

MAC Touch of Red Nail Lacquer ($17.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright yellow red.” This is a brightened medium red with pinky undertones–it doesn’t really look like a yellow-based red on me. It looks just slightly blue-based against my warmer skin tone. MAC Russian Red is a little darker. China Glaze Poinsettia is brighter. Zoya Sooki seems very similar. Butter London Pillar Box Red is a bit darker. China Glaze Hey Sailor is quite similar.

MAC Vestral White Nail Lacquer

MAC Vestral White Nail Lacquer ($17.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “creamy white.” It’s a stark white cream. NARS Ecume is similar. China Glaze Snow is a bit cooler-toned. Nubar White Peony is warmer.  You might even consider White-Out (thanks Brooke!), because the way this applied reminded me of being in elementary school when girls would apply White-Out like it was nail polish during class–dry, chalky, and oh-so-streaky.  It’s mostly opaque after two coats, but it’s not even.

MAC Fashion Sets: Nail Lacquer Review Round-up

MAC is not known for an excellent nail polish formula. Sometimes they do it right, but they often create some major misses that tend to suffer from too thin/too thick consistencies, streaking, and poor pigmentation. As is generally the case, the set of sixteen matching nail lacquers was a mixed bag but with more winners than real losers. Pigmentation wasn’t a problem with most of the shades, but I found several of them to be on the streakier side with some more readily covered with a thicker second coat. There were also a handful of shades that were lovely to apply!
