MAC Rain of Flowers Studio Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep violet with pink and blue pearl [with a Pearl finish].” It’s a deepened, subtly warm-toned blackened violet purple with brighter violet pearl and shimmer. It was mostly opaque after two coats, but there was a hint of nail line at times. The consistency is slightly thin, almost watery, but it wasn’t too difficult to work with. Zoya Belinda (P, $9.00) is lighter. NARS Fury (LE, $20.00) is a cream, warmer. L’Oreal The Mystic’s Fortune (LE) is is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / / view dupes.

MAC Anti-Fashion Studio Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a ”
mid-tone dirty purple with pearl [with a Frost finish].” It’s a dusty, muted purple-taupe with fine, iridescent purple shimmer and warm undertones. It was mostly opaque after I applied two coats of polish. The formula on this shade was slightly thick, so be careful when applying as it had a tendency to pool along the edges. Chanel Charivari (603) (P, $27.00) is darker. NARS Manosque (LE, $20.00) is warmer. MAC Festive Finery (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler-toned. China Glaze Below Deck (LE, $7.50) is a cream. Zoya Jana (P, $9.00) is lighter, cream. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Girl Trouble Studio Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “super glitter pink [with a Pearl finish].” It’s a slightly muted lavender with warmer, almost golden pearl/shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation after two coats, while the consistency was slightly thin, but it dried down fairly quickly and didn’t streak or bubble. There were a few visible brush strokes, but most of them disappeared as it dried down. NARS Night Rider (LE, $20.00) has larger sparkle. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It’s not as hard as some of the chunkier glitters, but it is more difficult than regular shimmer polishes!

Anti-Fashion is also along the lines of Chanel Paradoxal I’d say and also Barry M in 313 Dusky Mauve which was one of the first dupes for Paradoxal at the time.

Paradoxal is purpler – less dusty? in a way and seems to have stronger shimmer when I look at the two!

Yeah definitely, the shimmer definitely comes through more in the Chanel. I found it depended which swatches I looked at as well because of the lighting- the troubles shimmer can cause!! I guess I’d say go Chanel or the Barry M dupe if the shimmer is what draws you to it in the bottle because it comes across more on the nail in those.

I like rain of flowers! (of course, LOL!).

I was actually really interested in seeing Girl Trouble, and I’m pleased that the finish is nice and smooth. It’s a very pretty shade, very ethereal…but it’s one of those ones that I lust after, then feel looks washed out and terrible on my skintone! So frustrating! 😛

Ohhhh Girl Trouble reminds me of MACs pigment Kitschmas (which I LOVE) so this one is on the MAC polish list as well hahah

I love Rain of Flowers of all the MAC nail polishes it’s the one I must have. I think it’s gorgeous!
I also like the other two. Anti-Fashion doesn’t look like anything I have and Girl Trouble is a very sweet lilac shimmer. So many beautiful nail polishes coming now. The stress of chosing! Apart from the one must have, of course 🙂
