It’s been a really long time since I’ve used any nail products from MAC so I was really excited when they announced they were releasing a new collection of lacquers with an all new formula and with it six tranformer shades. The new brush makes application really easy and smooth, none of the shades I tried had any streaking and evened out beautifully.
Quiet Time is a straight up beige. And since shades like this are known for streaking, I was pleasantly surprised when it went on completely evenly. I could’ve gotten away with one thin coat but I did two and a topcoat just to make sure. This is one of the best neutrals I’ve used in years.
Midnight is a sheer black that’s supposed to change the shade of your polish.I tried it on Quiet Time so I could really look for a difference. After three coats of Midnight, Quiet Time changed from a light beige to a mid toned gray-beige.
I’m not usually a red nail polish person but this shade is completely gorgeous. It’s a dark berry red and went on like a dream. I’m going to get a lot of wear out of this one.
Liquid Pigment Gold Pearl
I tried this Gold Pigment on Sour Cherry and (from bottom to top) did one to three coats to varying results. I loved how two coats changed Sour Cherry and made it golden but you could still see the berry underneath. You definitely have to use Gold Pearl much more sparingly than Midnight.
I’m so completely impressed with the new nail collection from MAC and after seeing all the other shades they’ve brought out I’m going to have a really hard time not buying a ton to add to my collection.
