MAC Cosmetics Nail Lacquer in Nightfall Review + Photos

Mac has long been known as the queen of department-store beauty, but with new makeup companies like Maybelline, Revlon, and CoverGirl, Mac’s place has long been unstable.

But with its nail lacquers, it won over all of us . . . again.

Creamy black with silver shine, it looked GORGEOUS on Mac’s website, so I figured, see, I deserve a new nail lacquer because . . . It’s March?

I finally convinced myself these were worth the USD$16 dollar price tag because it offered free shipping, and was just so luscious-looking.

Well, voila.

*NOTE: I don’t own this picture! I didn’t have time to upload my version of this nail lacquer, so I posted this from Google Images. I’ll be updating this post with my own pic when I figure out what’s wrong with my camera and laptop’s USB . . . SORRY! No copyright infringement intended to the owner!*

I tried Nightfall at a black-tie event, and it matched perfectly with everything. I think you can have bedhead hair, crazy print clothes, and still look gorgeous with this shade on . . .

REVIEW

Online Rating: 4/5 or 8/10

Personal Rating: 7.5/10

  • Texture

If you were to look at the liquid in its bottle, I think you’d find it thick and luscious-looking, with that gorgeous silver sparkle and the rich creamy black. But to apply it on your nails . . . is a whole different matter.

On my nails, it seems that one coat of Nightfall just isn’t enough . . . The color looks streaky with one swipe, and when it dries, you’ll be left with an interesting look of patchwork nails. So for those gals who are always in a little bit of hurry, you might have to skip over this look because one coat is simply not enough for these.

  • Color

If you’d read the above, you’ll find me gushing about the formal black backdrop and silver sparkles, but as this polish is a tad streaky, I’d advise at least 2 coats.

I’ll update soon with my own pics, but that’s it for now. 🙂
