There’s a time and a place for crazy glittery nail polish, but when you’re more in the mood to kick back, there’s also MAC Casual Colour ($16 each).


The four new laid back limited edition nail lacquers released with the MAC Casual Colour collection get nails ready for everyday tasks, like grocery shopping, watering the plants, cleaning the back of the stove and catching the bus on time. Nothing too outrageous here. Just four basic, user-friendly, wearable shades.

Here I’m wearing two coats on each of my nails…

I can’t wait to get this juicy mid-tone orange coral on my toes! Easily the brightest of these four, it’s also the easiest to apply (no streaks!). Oh, happy day. 🙂

Style Tip

Do you remember MAC Spite from the Fashion Sets collection? I have a feeling Spite and Style Tips are close cousins. If you already own Spite, I think you can probably pass on this particular soft pink nude crème.

Please Me

There’s something about this mid-toned warm pink crème… I like it. It’s feminine and timeless. In fact, I think it made my watch stop earlier today (ba-dum chh!). But seriously, it’s also generous with pigment.


Let’s see… How can I put this delicately? Well, Delicate has a popular job. As a pale sheer ballet pink with a crème finish, it’s one of many similar shades on the market. Sadly, this one streaks, and I think there are better ones out there from other lines.


The thing is, like the new Beth Ditto Nail Lacquers, these shades just don’t seem all that unusual to me, and I think that would be easier to overlook if they weren’t also more expensive than many other nail polish brands.

I do think they’re in character for the collection, which is nice. Casual Colours these definitely are, and I like it when the color palette seems to make sense. 🙂

All four shades are available now at and coming June 7 to North American counters, and internationally later this month.

    I don’t know why they choose such dupeable colors when there are so many well-performing, affordable nail polishes available.

      Agreed! There really isn’t anything particularly exciting or groundbreaking about any of these shades. I’ve never really been impressed with the performance of MAC’s nail polishes, either. Never could justify the cost. Cheaper options that perform much better abound.
