MAC Grey Friday Nail Lacquer
Thank Goodness for Grey Friday
MAC Grey Friday Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “black matte with silver suede pearl.” It’s a charcoal black with multi-sized silver shimmer and micro-shimmer. The finish is not quite matte, but it’s not glossy. It has that suede-like finish MAC was hinting at. China Glaze Stone Cold has less shimmer. MAC Military is similar but more matte and has less shimmer. Nubar Midnight is the closest, as it has a higher shimmer content than the other two shades I mentioned, but it, too, has more of a matte finish.
This polish was actually very, very good. It was fully opaque in two coats, though almost opaque in a single one, and flowed beautifully across the nail. The consistency was just right without being thick or thin, and I didn’t have any trouble with streaking, bubbling, or polish pooling on the edges. It was, quite frankly, one of the best consistencies I’ve seen MAC put out. It wore seven days on me without chipping, but I will be the first to point out that very nearly nothing chips on me. I had minor tip wear, a little more than average, but not by much.
