I share with you today my adventure with Miss Mary MAC - as in MAC Nail Polish!!
I went on line and low and behold there was a MAC store not even 40 miles from me - but i didn't have a car that day. I remembered a girlfriend worked not too far from the store - so I called her - she thought I was nuts!! So, she made the call to the store and they told her they were sold out also - her reply was 'WHAT? It's fingernail polish!! How do you sell out of fingernail polish that just came out??' Needless to say she is not an MUAer. Well, the SA said she found one more and told her she would hold it for her. The next day my girlfriend went up there and picked up the last little bottle of BLUE INDIA!! YES!! I now had this beauty in my little hands - and today she makes her debut...along with some other friends that my friend brought me. THANK YOU GIRL - YOU KNOW WHO ARE!! Cause that's how us DIVA's roll!!
(For swatching purposes I used a base coat 2-3 coats of np and a top coat - unless otherwise indicated)
I really have nothing negative to say about any of the applications whatsoever. The brush strokes where smooth, application very buttery, and Blue India was the most opaque of the 5 - so that one only needed two coats.
Imprial Splendour was more of an eggplant color to me and blurring it was the only way I could capture it in it's 'Imperial Splendour"!!
Malibu Peach was the only one that I really could not capture - it turned out a little more orangey in the pictures, but it really is a beautiful springy peach/coral that I can't wait to put on my toes!! :-)
If you missed out on Blue India, I'll be doing a comp swatch for you next week to show you some other alternatives that you could still feel the bluish dusty teal gray that it is in this polish. No dupes, though. :-(
