MAC Cham-Pale: Very Important Platinum Nail Lacquer

MAC Very Important Platinum Nail Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a a metallic pewter with silver micro-shimmer strewn it. It has a frost finish, and MAC officially describes it as a “dirty platinum.”  Like Soiree, I found the finish to be much more metallic than that of a typical frost, and it has the brush strokes to prove it!  Shown here with two coats, I found it impossible not to have far too many brush strokes messing up the overall look of the polish.  I was disappointed in the consistency, too, which was thick and gloppy.  The color is gorgeous (I love pewter anything!), but the formula itself is one of MAC’s worst in the past couple years–and I like MAC’s lacquers in general.

MAC Cham-Pale is a limited edition launch (official information and photos here) that is set to launch in-stores on December 26th in North American, January 2011 for international MAC locations. The approximate launch date for online is December 24th. It features color products as well as a few skincare items.
