MAC Nail Lacquers in Quick Million, Erogenous, Underlacquer and Overlacquer

Yeah, I made my first quick million by being erogenous.

Haha. No, not really. πŸ™‚


But what if I could? I don’t know. I would not…say no to that. Perhaps. Maybe?

Anywho, I wanted to paint my nails last weekend with something summery but not all-out bright, and these two shiny, almost gel-like polishes from the recently relaunched MAC nail polish line ($12 each) fit the bill.

I’ve been inspired by pale rose and peachy golden tones lately, and they seemed like they’d go well together.

Creamy peach Erogenous just said “summer” to me, but I felt like it needed a dance partner…

Enter glittery yellowish gold Quick Million, with its little yellowish golden flecks of glitter and larger flecks of hexagonal peachy rose.

Great by itself, which is how I’m wearing it here (two coats), Quick Million can also work as a top coat.

You know, in case you’re interested.

I like these two together even more than I like them apart. The peach in Erogenous goes well with the hexagonal flecks in Quick Million.

Both are available now, along with the rest of the Studio Nail Lacquer line, for $12 each.

Incidentally, I’m also wearing them with MAC’s Underlacquer and Overlacquer base and top coats (also $12 each), and I have to say that despite it being only two days since I put these polishes on my paws, I’ve typed a lot and cleaned my office during that time, so my nails have already taken a beating, but the polishes have handled it with aplomb.

Because of how hard I am on my nails (especially the nails on my right hand, for some reason), I always — always — see chips within one or two days, but I barely see any signs of chipping now at all.

Good sign.

Halogen Sleeveless Tie Neck Top in the Pink Lip Print

Halogen Sleeveless Tie Neck Top in the Pink Lip Print (on sale now for $44.90; regularly $69)

It’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale time, and I’ve been in dire need of tops that don’t have cats on them (wait — what did I just say?), so en lieu of the felines for a change, I brought home this shirt.

Which happens to have lipstick kisses on it.

So. Cute.

It’s by Halogen and on sale now for $44.90, originally $69, which kind of makes me cranky, because I probably wouldn’t get it for $69 as it’s made from 100% polyester.


For silk, perhaps.

Anyway, it is/was on sale, machine wash and tumble dry on low heat, and available in regular and petite sizes from XS-XL. This one’s navy with pink and red lips and has sassy little bow tie detailing around the neck, but it’s also available in a solid black version, and a burgundy version with little black stars instead of lips.

Just thought you should know. πŸ™‚

    THis manicure combo is so pretty πŸ™‚ It really gives me a ‘bridal’ feel, but in a fresh and summery way. Like maybe all your bridesmaids are wearing pretty sundresses in that peachy colour, with pale gold strappy sandals ^_^.

    Oooh! Pretty! This is an excellent combo Karen! <3

  8. Oooooh, Karen, the shirt is just perfect! I love a blue-red combi, this surely looks great with shorts!

    These days I’m also very attracted by lighter nail polish shades. Sinnce yesterday I’m wearing a light peach, kind of a bit jelly coral (but very light). I love it, and three colleages just fell in love with the shade, too. They went to buy it still yesterday, LOL. πŸ™‚
    You can see it on my blog and instagram (mellecannelle).

    So, Erogenous is a shade I would buy, too, just beautiful.
