MAC Skin Nail Lacquer
MAC Skin Nail Lacquer ($17.50 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “light peach beige [with a Cream finish].” It’s a light-medium, muted peach with warm undertones and a cream finish. MAC Thimbleweed (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Sweet Pop (LE, $16.00) more orange. MAC Pep Pep Pep (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Peachstock (LE, $16.00) is more beige, darker. MAC Myth (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Life & Beth (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Hangin’ Loose (LE, $16.00) is lighter, sheerer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
The consistency was just slightly thick, but it didn’t pool along the edges or take too long to dry (about average). It had semi-opaque color coverage after two coats, but the major issue with this shade was the streaky application and end result. I hoped that it would self-level, but no such luck, so it looked a bit patchy and streaky in places. MAC makes this type of color over and over again, but I rarely have great success with the formula. The bristles of the brush seem too sharp or harshly cut so they make it difficult to get really even, smooth color. I typically get a week of wear out of MAC’s formula, which is normal for me for most formulas.
