MAC Blog This Studio Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a "deep purple plum." It's a blackened purpled berry with cool undertones and a cream finish. It had mostly opaque coverage, but it tended to be quite streaky on the initial coat and was mostly covered by the second coat, though not entirely so it may require a third coat or good base coat. The consistency ran thin but didn't pool along the edges. I typically get a week of wear out of MAC's polish. Dior Smoky (990) (LE, $27.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Gadabout Girl (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). China Glaze Urban Night (LE, $7.50) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
