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.
*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 . . .
Online Rating: 4/5 or 8/10
Personal Rating: 7.5/10
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.
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. 🙂
