MAC Glamour Daze Nail Lacquers for Holiday 2012 Swatches & Review

MAC Glamour Daze for holiday 2012 includes four new nail lacquers. Three of the four are kind of sweet, feminine shades. And the other is the only absolute must have. For me anyway…

The formula went from horrible to pretty good. The more MAC lacquer I swatch the more I realize just how bad the creme formula is from them. Their cremes are nearly always thick, sticky and streaky. But the foils and shimmers tend to be SO much better! Not sure how this happens and why they can’t fix it, but I really think they need to start figuring it out. Especially if they are going to keep raising the prices…More on that below.

Endless Night is a pale shimmery greyish pink with iridescent pink shimmer. This one is extremely sheer, and even after three coats you can see my nail line. It’s also a bit streaky. Nothing really very interesting I don’t think.
