MAC's Venomous Villains Nail Polish Collection

Thursday, 30 September, 2010

These arrived today and I fell in love with the colors in the bottles. I also did a picture comparison with Orly.

The overall formula for MAC is thin and runny. That being said, it dried quickly.

I do wish MAC had put some Villains on the polish bottles. They did it for the other items in the line, so why not this one? Kind of bums me out. Overall the colors were cute, but as you can see, nothing that really wowed me. I’ve seen Mean & Green and Formidable! before thanks to Orly. I’m still going to hang on to these, though. 😀

This is an image heavy post…you have been warned! I tried to best capture the shimmers of the polishes.

There really is no discernible difference between the two, is there? Even the size of the glitter, etc. M&G is a bit thinner than SC. 3 coats of each.

MAC’s formula is thinner and runnier than Orly. You can see it. Other than that, no real discernible difference. This is 3 coats of each polish.

This formula was very thin and required 3 coats. But even after 3 coats, you can still see my nail under it. 🙁

    Thank you for the great comparison shots! 🙂 I only bought Bad Fairy since I have the Orlys.

      I didn’t get very good shots of Bad Fairy. It is a pink/orange and reminded me of padparadscha. It is pretty but looking at it now on my hands…not very flattering, tbh. I should take a pic w my iPhone so people can see a different angle!
