MAC Alice + Olivia (2010)


Back when I was much more actively collecting nail polish, I always looked forward to MAC's frequent collections.  Some were misses (usually repromotes), but sometimes MAC knocks it out of the park, such as with Venomous Villains and this collection, Alice + Olivia.  I'm not familiar with Alice + Olivia, only that it is a fashion brand.

Military (2 coats):  black matte with silver flecks

Morning.After (2 coats):  rich teal creme

So Rich, So Pretty (2 coats):  Tyrian purple shimmer

All of the polish apply surprisingly well, even for MAC polishes.  Military dries smoothly, not lumpy like some matte polishes can be.  Morning.After is so much richer and vivid in person, but my camera doesn't capture those qualities in it.  I had the same problem with Pretty Serious Precipitation.  So Rich, So Pretty reminds me of Essie Viva La Vespa, but not as dark.
