I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed that MAC’s Nail Trend Fall/Winter ’09 Jin Soon Choi collection nail polishes break my MAC nail lacquer curse.
I haven’t always had the greatest luck with MAC’s nail polishes. Most have chipped like Cheetoes, but I’m hoping the Jin Soon Choi collection breaks the cycle.
A fixture in the fashion biz for more than 20 years, nail artist Jin Soon worked with MAC on this release. They aimed for trendy and chip-resistant, with rich lacquers and full coverage.
Colors in the collection include…
- Cool Reserve: a dirty, grayish lavender cream
- For Fun: a creamy purple
- Dance All Night: a creamy brick red
- Rich, Dark, Delicious: a creamy blackened brown
- Dry Martini: a creamy khaki olive green
- Beyond Jealous: a creamy blackened bluish green
- Underlacquer: a base coat
- Overlacquer: a top coat
The shades arrive on counters this Thursday. I took a quick look at two of them today.
Nail Lacquer in For Fun
Nail Lacquer in Dance All Night
I can’t attest to their durability yet since I’ve only been wearing them a short time today, but I think the formula feels thicker than MAC’s lacquers of yore, laying down smooth color sans brush marks or bubbles.
I like both of these shades and will keep you posted on their durability over the next few days.
Look out weekend — here we come!
Hallelujar! The weekend’s ON.
Do you have any plans tonight? I’ve just been chilling at home. Exciting, I know, but I’m wasted. I think I need to veg.
Maybe I’ll chat online with Vampire Edward (as in Twilight’s Edward Cullen). The fanged one (or an impostor) started following me on Twitter!
Dude, I hope Bella doesn’t mind.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Oh, one more MAC thing to look forward to: Flirt With Fall on Aug. 27! It’s a collection of six false lashes, and they’re really supposed to bring the drama.
