I was putting on my powder this morning and went to this oft used gal brush of mine…Mac’s Brush #1.
It has been discontinued for a long time and in many ways, this is kind of retro because it’s more than ten years old (eep!).
MAC’s formula dried quickly and was not opaque on the first coat. With the initial application it was kind of gross – it looked like…well, poo. I’ll stop right there and let your imagination fly.
Once again, SB’s formula is superb – flawless application, fast drying and opaque when it should be. Strange Beautiful would be my favorite brand, but the fact that they’re limited editions and don’t come out with nearly enough colors to appease me bumps them to the bottom part of my top 7 fave brands.
Enough of the rambling, on to the polish!
Oddly enough, this color looked fabulous on me!
This was a gorgeous color and I really liked seeing it on me. I didn’t put a top coat on this because I forgot to. I had been in a rush. Oops. Sorry it’s not as shiny and perty as it could be!
I was seriously excited about this color…and it didn’t disappoint. Love that it’s a gorgeous blue gray. I love the packaging as well. All the necessary shots are in here!
How gorgeous is this color? I’m going to try and wear this until it chips so we can see how good the formula is. 🙂 It’s not quite blue, it’s not quite grey, it reminds you of teal…but overall this color is just so pretty I can’t stop staring at it!
Here are some other pictures I took…I just noticed that I didn’t include one of the actual polish in the box – I was that excited.
Just a note – Liberty of London teamed up with MAC to create a make-up line that brings the brand’s prints and colors to your face and nails! Also, you can find Liberty of London at Target. Check it out…I think I’ve fallen in love. According to All Lacquered Up, the unusual packaging is “based on William Morris’s Strawberry Thief print from 1883…” Whatever the history and whatever their reasons for choosing this packaging is quite all right by me!
This polish is really, really pretty. Added bonus? It’s a creme! No shimmer, no glitter…just a pure, gorgeous green creme with wonderful application.
I thought that OPI had nailed a great dark green with HT…AT, but this…wow. This moved that right out of my way. I love how in the sun it looks almost like a grey-green thanks to a tiny dose of blue.

What a gorgeous deep purple creme. I hate sparkles and shimmers in my nail polish and this was just…beyond gorgeousness. This makes CG’s Grape Pop and RBL’s Mismas look so…sad and lonely.
Formula was a little on the too thin/runny side, but if I laid it on a little thicker than usual and let it completely dry between coats, I got no bubbling. It was completely dry in 30 mins. I got a little fidgety at the 15 marker,b ut it was worth the results!
