MAC Fiestaware 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.

Ke Ai ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft pink frost [with a frost finish].” It’s a soft, pale pink with silver sparkle. It’s semi-opaque with two coats, and it’s the type of polish that seems like it’s supposed to be a sheer but MAC didn’t say it’s sheer (and they have used this as a descriptor in the past). It was slightly thick but had minimal brush strokes and applied fairly well. OCC Femme is darker. NARS Trouville is more pigmented, less shimmery. MAC Confectionary is lighter, less shimmery. Illamasqua Pink Raindrops is more muted, more pigmented.Rescue Beauty Lounge Plie is more pigmented, has no shimmer. Essie Kisses & Bisses is iridescent. See comparison swatches.

Morange ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright cream orange [with a cream finish].” It’s a medium-dark orange with red undertones and a cream finish. It was opaque in two coats and applied fairly well. Cult Nails Ay Poppy is more muted. NARS TV Party is slightly lighter. NARS Madness is brighter. Illamasqua Gamma is lighter, brighter. See comparison swatches.

Sweet Pop ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “peach cream [with a cream finish].” It’s a light peachy orange with a cream finish. It was slightly thin in consistency, and it was streaky during application. What makes it stand out from other peaches is it has a strong orange and yellow tone to it. MAC Riot Gear is darker, more orange. MAC Pep Pep Pep is less orange, lighter. See comparison swatches.

All three look so pretty! I have a slight preference for the two orange shades, but I really like the pink one too. I hadn’t realized before that it has some subtle shimmer it, I like that.

Wow, Ke Ai is my favorite of the bunch, which is a surprise. I actually find it to look quite unique, and it’s the sort of shade that could have really bad streak/brush stroke issues. I’ve never bought a MAC nail polish before, but I am tempted to try this one out. I’ve been looking for a color like this for some time.

I just want to say that i looove your blog 🙂 Your pictures and your work are amazing. It´s the best beauty blog !!!!! Merci beaucoup ! From Paris

I really like Ke Ai and Sweet Pop. I don’t think I could justify spending $16 for them though. Also, I really like that you are putting similar products together in posts now. 🙂

I wish they had a little more variety, I don’t even feel like most of these shades could be counted as orange :/ I wish they made a fiery reddened orange with gold shimmer.

I LOVE how shiny Fiestaware is…..but I love that shimmer in Ke Ai. Too bad it’s so sheer. I’d probably want to wear it on top of another shade.

Nice!

I am sorry to bother you but I have been looking for Mac’s peppermint patti and mac’s seasonal peach nailpolish stuff. It is MAC’s Sugarsweet Collection. Do you know where I can find it. I have looked everywhere on mac, macy’s, amazon, and every else. Please reply when you can thanks.
