One of the first MAC lipsticks I purchased was Myth, this was around the time when a lot of girls were plastering their lips with foundation (I was about 17 at college), and I wanted a nude lipstick. I wore Myth for ages, I loved the colour but hated the fact that it showed every single teeny tiny crack on your lips. Anyway…I’ve been wanting to invest in a nude nail polish for several months and when I found out about Myth nail polish I had to have it. It retails at £9 and for MAC I thought that was reasonable.
As you can see it looks a lovely nude colour in the bottle, however, when I began to apply the polish it looked far more orange. I also noticed that it streaked when I applied it, and I was left with the brush stroke lines on my nails. I applied two coats and let them dry, then applied my regular Barry M top coat. As soon as I applied the top coat, the MAC polish colour lifted on a couple of my nails, and it looked as though I had chipped them. My little finger shows this quite clearly;
As you can see the polish is quite orange, I think this is more noticeable against by tan free skin, and perhaps would look better if I had some false tan on. As for durability, I didn’t really do much for the two days after applying and it has chipped. I applied it on Friday and every nail is now chipped.
I wouldn’t buy this colour again and think there are far nicer shades available, but at least I’ve given it a go. This experience hasn’t completely put me off, as I would like to buy Impassioned as I love the lipstick.
Have any of you tried the MAC fashion sets nail polish? How did you find them?
