I agree too.Its the color of sick doggy poo! Sorry,i know that sounds yuck but its true lol I cant imagine anybody wanting to wear this color.

I really do love this collection but i think For Fun Nail Lacquer(bright purple) can be duped by GOSH and barry m.

Cool Reserve Nail Lacquer reminds me of Love and Friendship from the Rose Romance collection!

Dry Martini Nail Lacquer is a excat match to a dress i have and may get this.

Rich, Dark, Delicious Nail Lacquer(Dark Brown with flecks of Glitter)may get this too!

Beyond Jealous Nail Lacquer (seems like a standar black) which I have from Rimmel London!

Dance All Night Nail Lacquer (blood REd)seems dupable from Rimmel London

Is it worth getting Macs base and top coat are they any good!

Thanks for the post christine x

beyond jealous and dance all night are my type of colors… as much as i want to have it, i usually stick with drugstore brands when it comes to nail polishes… i’d rather use that money to buy more makeup and brushes with MAC!

Cool Reserve reminds me of a cooler version of last Fall’s OPI’s French Line – “you don’t know Jacques” which I already have and love so I can skip that one

Glad, I preordered Beyond Jealous and if they haven’t sold out of For Fun I may have to pick that one up too!

I like Rich, Dark, Delicious but I can’t warm up to brown nail polishes – I must have od’ed on them in the 90’s!

I know some people might love Dry Martini because it’s unique… but man that is a disgusting color. Personal opinion. And Cool Reserve reminds me of the one from a Rose Romance.

based on description alone, I wanted Dry Marini because I’m in a green polish phase rignt now but I am glad I saw this in person before pre-ordering and also I know for fact that this would look awful on me because I’m a darker skin tone than Christine.

These look *nothing* like their MAC descriptions. Cool Reserve was supposed to be a pale, grayed lavender and it looks like a grayish taupe to me. Beyond jealous was described as a blackened blue green, but all I see is black. Dry Martini looks sickening. Boo.

hahahaha I so agree! I wanted to be the first person to comment on how much this resembles human waste, but you beat me to it!! hahaha

Beyond Jealous is awesome! It almost looks black but is much more flattering! Also really like Rich, Dark and Delicious.

Also completely agree Dry Martini looks horrible.

haha its funny everyone was going crazy about dry martini and now that its out no one likes it :b but i have to agree its really ugly

I do love cool reserve though for sure picking that up!

Dry Martini kinda looks like liquid poo… sorry MAC! That Cool Reserve color is beautiful and it is always nice to have a more wearable purple as an optionf or those of us who need more “office appropriate” colors, but still wnat something more than just red or pink, but the formula on these still look streaky to me and I am fining myself saying “so what?”… There are so many brands out there making beautiful polishes, you would think MAC would try just a little harder with these…

I agree! I like For Fun and Cool Reserve but it doesn’t look worth $12… at all. Does anyone know of any other dupes besides the MAC rose romance one & OPI’s “you don’t know jacques”(i tried to look for this one online, they were out of stock)

I don’t think Cool Reserve look at all like You Don’t Know Jacques. The last one look really dark warm grey (at least on me) while based on picture, Cool Reserve doesn’t seem that deep – more a lavender grey. It more reminds me of OPI Done Out in Deco or a light version of Parlez Vous OPI.

ooo, wow. I’m glad I saw this. I was going to buy all six and now I can feel alright with passing on all six. I was really feeling Beyond Jealous but it’s way too dark. If anything, For Fun and Cool Reserve but that’s not necessary. Love and Friendship had more purple, I think that’s the one everyone is referring to from Rose Collection, and is really pretty. Well, I already got the stuff I wanted for the art collection. I think I’ll get Crest the Wave and be done and wait on the black collection and that mascara coming out at the end of Sept. And D square caught my eye for feline and contouring.

Same here, I’m on a tight budget and don’t feel like giving 13 euros for a MAC nail polish although I find Cool Reserve and Dance All Night to be very pretty. 🙁

Dance all Night- Crepes Suzi-ette
Beyond Jealous= Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees
For Fun= Pamplona Purple or A Grape Fit or
Cool Reserve= Done Out in Deco or Do you lilac it? (maybe)Parlez-Vous OPI?

Dance All Night is waaaaaaay darker than Crepes Suzi-ette (which also is kinda orangey) and Parlez-Vous is way closer than the other two mentioned, cool reserve is a really ‘sirty’ purple if that makes sense
