Collection: MAC Spring 2016, Fashion Pack
I’m kind of on a roll, now, so here’s another clearanced MAC polish that I picked up for CA$6.
Like My Gown?, from this spring’s Fashion Pack collection, is a vibrant magenta cream. It reminds me of Essie Footloose, which I ought to swatch one of these Throwback Thursdays.
The color is midtoned, and I think it’s one of those seasonless shades, though it’d probably look especially hot as a summer pedi! However, it’d also be a perfect pop of purple-y pink against the usual whites, greys and blacks of winter gear.
The formula is better than that of the previous two MAC Studio Nail Lacquers I swatched (Sweet Potion and Rack ‘Em Up), which were both light and milky neutrals, which can be notoriously difficult to apply. By contrast, Like My Gown? is a bright and strongly-pigmented shade, and it applies quite evenly and smoothly.
I do find the formula a touch thin, which means that with two coats as I have in my swatch, you don’t really get a nice plush look to the polish. Still, it’s a pretty shade and if you can find it discounted now that MAC has discontinued their Studio Nail Lacquers, it’s worth picking up if you don’t already have a similar color.
MAC Studio Nail Lacquer is 10 mL / 0.34 US fl oz, and it retails for US$12 / CA$15 / £10. The polish is free of toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). It is made in the USA.
MAC (Make-up Art Cosmetics) was founded by Frank Toskan and Frank Angelo in 1984, in Toronto, ON, Canada. Its products were originally intended for professional makeup artists, but it soon became a worldwide consumer brand. New York, NY, USA-based cosmetics giant Estée Lauder Cos. completed its acquisition of MAC in 1998.
