MAC’s latest makeup collection is called Style Warrior and they included three new nail polishes. I swatched these the second I got them last night, I was so excited! So keep in mind that the light isn’t the best since the sun was starting to go down. Also my nails are NUBS right now. Had to cut them WAY down because they are splitting like mad. I really don’t think they like all this swatching and polish
Peaceable is a light frosty champagne color. Because this is a frost, it’s not my favorite. I just am not a fan of frost. It also has very tiny almost imperceptible glitter in it that is green and pink. It went on fairly sheer and was surprisingly non-streaky for a frost. This is three colors.
Violet Fire was a little disappointing to me as well. The color is a medium purple that has a lot of pink in it. The bottle calls it a “creme” but it’s definitely not. It’s got a lot of silver and pink shimmer to it. I didn’t think it was great though because it was extremely sheer and I got some annoying tip shrinkage. This was three coats and I could have used another, as you can see from the tips.
Now THIS is more like it! Mercenary totally rocks and I love the name. The polish is coppery, like melted pennies with a heavy gold foil like finish. It’s got tiny green and pink glitter in it also. I absolutely LOVE this color, it’s totally unique to me and the application was nice and opaque. This was two coats.
Overall the only stand out of the three for me was Mercenary. I think a lot of people will like Peaceable too, but you’ve got to love frost to like that one. Violet Fire just wasn’t anything original and way too sheer for me. What do you guys think, yay or nay on these?
