With these five nail lacquers, it’s All About Orange. The five nail lacquers from MAC’s All About Orange collection ($16 each)
Juicy orange summer nails — oh, yeah!
Err, let’s make that mostly orange, because technically, one of these five nail polishes from the MAC All About Orange collection is more of a pink, and its name sounds like a karate spirit shout.
Or Ke Ai, which is how MAC spells it here.
I like to say it loud and do karate chops in the air for emphasis…
Two coats of Ke Ai, a soft pink with a Frost finish
So the collection is actually mostly about orange (MAC Mostly About Orange?), but that doesn’t sound as sweet.
The five $16 quintessentially summer polishes in the release ripened last week (they’re available now). The collection features four bright, juicy Creamsicle-like nail shades and one shimmery pale pink called.
Chop, chop, chop…
I think they’re a bumper crop save one thing. I wish some of them were a little easier to work with, but then I’m coming off a major Chanel Starlet high…

Three coats of Colour Punch, a yellowish orange with a Cream finish
Super cute Colour Punch is awfully thick and surprisingly streaky. I have to remember to remove most of the polish from the brush before applying, and then paint s l o w l y, watching my strokes.
I think it looks fine with two coats but better with three.
