MAC Jeanius: Biker Blue

MAC Biker Blue Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “black base with purple and blue pearl,” and it has a frost finish. I did find I needed a full three coats in order to get a really solid, opaque look, but it was very pretty and rich once I finished there. Luckily, the formula is thin without being watery, so three coats doesn’t feel thick at all.

Overall, it looks likd a midnight blue polish, but it does have that inky bluish black color base with flecks of brighter blue and navy blue shimmer-glitter. Nubar’s Night Sparkle is similar but has a brighter blue base, as is Rescue Beauty Lounge’s Under the Stars, which is less blue and the finish looks different (less shimmer).

  • Product: 27/30
  • Value: 7/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

final thoughts: The $14 price tag does bring down the product’s overall score in a noteworthy way; at that price range, MAC is inching its way up to compete, far too closely (given the differences in prices on many other products still) with polishes from Estee Lauder, NARS, and Dior.

Hmm…missing the magenta shimmer from the promo pics! That would’ve made this really standout if it was as apparent as it had been there.

This seems a lot like Milani’s Fairy Tale, but more of a true blue sparkle to Fairy Tale’s teal.

So pretty! I have OPI Russian Navy and thought I could skip this one but they’re totally different. Russian Navy has fine blue AND purple shimmer, this has chunkier blue shimmer. I don’t mind that the purple shimmer in this is missing. I’m glad that it’s different from my OPI one. Totally getting this.

Dupe Alert!!!!

After hours of combing the interwebz, as well as my local drugstore, I think I found a *pretty good* dupe for this.

Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Blazing Blue.

There aren’t many swatches out there, but I did find one page. I won’t post another blog link here without permission, but name of the website is manicureaddict, and the date of the post is Feb 18th, 2011.
