Hey, Sailor! What’s that you’re wearing on your nails?
Oh, the two new nail lacquers from MAC’s Hey, Sailor! collection? Ya don’t say… Well, in that case, drop anchor for a spell, and tell me what you can about these nautical treats.
Hmm… They’re expensive, you say? Wow, $17? That does sound like a lot, even if the packaging is cute and limited edition.
But what about the individual shades? What do you think? Are they worth it?
TOUCH OF RED
I only need one or two coats of this bright, creamy yellowish red for full-coverage color, and it dries in a decent amount of time. Say 30 minutes.
I dig how well it matches the red lip products also released with this collection, but I feel like I’ve seen similar colors for much less…

Touch of Red
I remember when there were far fewer options for nail polish colors back in the day. Pink, red and peach were the most popular shades, and if I wanted to paint my nails with a creamy white like Vestral, I would have reached for a bottle of White-Out!
Gross, I know.
Vestral White’s high gloss, bright white color and decent dry time (like Touch of Red, it takes about 30 minutes) scores major points with me, but the thick formula applies unevenly and leaves streaks. For opaque color, I have to apply from three to four layers.
Considering the price ($17)…I can’t abide the streaks.
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: C
Both Vestral White and Touch of Red are available now at MAC counters, stores and maccosmetics.com.
How do you feel about MAC’s nail products in general? Do you think they’re on the right track?
