MAC Cham-Pale Nail Lacquers - Soirée and Very Important Platinum


Soirée is a dusty rose duochrome foil.  MAC's site describes it as "sparkly light bronze," but as you can see there are serious rose tones going on here.  I'll compromise and say dusty, bronzy rose gold duochrome foil.  This shade had excellent application.  Two coats for full coverage.  Yay MAC!  You are making such strides in improving your nail polish formula, but you could try harder (see below).

Soirée again from another angle.  

VIP - Very Important Platinum

Very Important Platinum is a pewter metallic frost.  MAC has definitely improved its formula for nail polish over the years, but this is one attempt that just isn't showing the lengths of their improvement.  Very thin, very watery.  It was difficult not to show streaks.  It's unfortunate since I think the color is really interesting.  It's steel with green and silver undertones.  It's pale and shimmery without being too girly.  MAC's site describes it as "dirty platinum."  I could see that!

Soirée and Very Important Platinum are $13 for 10ml 0.34 fl.oz. and are a part of the Cham-Pale collection, in stores December 26.
