The MAC Venomous Villains release includes three new nail lacquers in the Maleficent collection.
These are glittery duochrome colors, really cool looking, but two we have seen before…
I do wish MAC had designed these bottles with Maleficent on them because it would have made them more special, and I bet more people would have bought them who already had the dupes.
The formula was pretty good. I did need three coats for all for maximum coverage. Tip: Don’t forget to wrap your nails when painting with these because as you can see from my Mean & Green swatch, I didn’t and it’s REALLY obvious!
Mean & Green
Mean & Green is a deep purple duochrome. It’s a really cool color but basically a dupe for Orly Space Cadet.
Orly Space Cadet
Bad Fairy is the only one of these that I didn’t have at least one dupe for. It’s a pink duochrome with heavy flashes of red. Despite the fact that it was the most unique color, it was my least favorite.
Formidable! is a deep purple/brown/green duochrome. This one is not only a dupe for Orly Galaxy Girl but also pretty much a dupe for Duri Kingdom Of Shadows as well. Duri’s might be a little darker and slightly more purple/brown on the nail, but for all intents and purposes they are all the same. Gorgeous, but now I have three colors like this. 🙂
Orly Galaxy Girl
Duri Kingdom Of Shadows
I think these are really cool, but I do wish the bottles were different than the standard bottle, and the colors were more unique. If I had to pick these or Orly, I would go with Orly simply because I love Orly’s formula, their caps and their bottle design.
Right now all of these are sold out on MAC’s website, but you might want to check your local stores/counters or Nordstrom/Macy’s.
What do you think about these? Did you pick any of them up?
