MAC Liberty Of London: Nail Polish Swatches

Blue India was very popular in the states and sold out so quickly. However, at the release party I went to, I think my mum and I were the only ones who paid attention to the polishes! So I don't think they will be quite as a big seller here.


Was amazing! Best MAC formula ever! 98% coverage in the first coat. It was so smooth and creamy. I hope MAC produces more like this!

The colour of Blue India is sort of a dusty teal. But it doesn't have too much green in it, more of a blue teal. But definitely dusty. 

It is quite a universal colour too, I tried it on and loved it, same happened with mum. My hands are more neutral coloured with yellow tones around my cuticles where as mum has more red undertones. So I think it will work with multiple skintones.


The formula for this polish was really... different. I've never come across something like this before so I wasn't too sure on what to do for it.

It felt like I was applying a cream polish but then it left weird streaks as matte polishes do when you put them on too thin. I had to use 3 coats to get it all evened out.

I feel a white ridgefiller would help with this.

The colour of Vestral White is not quite a stark white. More of a creamy white. Like it has a little bit of softness to it as apposed to OPI Alpine Snow but not quite as soft as say Zoya Lucy or OPI Time-less is More.

MAC Liberty Of London - What I Picked Up!

These are the pretties I picked up from the release party. You may want to enlarge these photos to get the full detail.
Luckily a few lipsticks and glosses I was looking at, didn't suit me what so ever, so my bank account was happy. The items I loved and purchased were Petals & Peacocks lipstick, Blooming Lovely lipstick, Vestral White nail polish and of course.... Blue India nail polish.
The lipsticks were $42 each and the nail polishes were $30. $30 is crazy. Luckily MAC finally got a better formula going on. It will make me think twice about purchasing a MAC polish from now on.

MAC Lipsticks

These are my most recent MAC lipsticks to show you. I have shown you swatches of Pink Burst and Victorian. I also told you I will swatch Bubblegum, but it turned out I was allergic to it so swatches will come when the problem has cleared up :)

Lipsticks in order:
Pink Burst, Laugh-a-lot, Victorian, Bubblegum, Fresh Salmon & Saint Germain.

The first five lipsticks are from MAC's recent collection called Spring Forecast 2010. And I believe Saint Germain is in the main line of lipsticks.

I got Saint Germain for the catwalk show. I hope it goes on nicely :)

Swatches clockwise from bright bubblegum pink:
Saint Germain, Bubblegum, Laugh-a-lot, Pink Burst, Victorian and Fresh Salmon.

Nails for Spring 2010

I thought I would create this post for the lovely Northern Hemisphere'ers!

So spring colours are all about the soft and the delicate. So pastels are a good choice along with sheers and nudes. I love to wear lavenders, mints, duck egg blues and baby pinks.

Spring has to be one of my favourite colours schemes so there is a lot of photos for you :) Enjoy!

Nails for Autumn/Fall 2010

If you are one of those ladies who likes to match her nails to the seasons, this post is for you! If not, skip the words and enjoy the pictures :)

Personally I had never ever thought about matching colours of what I wear to the corresponding season until my make-up course. Usually I wear what I like which is Peach, Duck Egg Blue, Mint Green and Lavender or either White or Black. I suppose it just makes you feel that little bit more fashionable when you match :D

So colours for your nails in Autumn are rich velvety colours in Golds, Purples, Reds & Browns. I also like Peaches for a softer look, and also a soft Baby Blue to contrast with the Oranges, Bronzes and Golds.

(The polishes names are their file name.)

OPI Black Onyx

When OPI had a 3 for 2 deal, I had to get Black Onyx again. Silly me for frankening the first one.

Black Onyx is my favourite black as it dries so shiny and so... juicy? In a way. I'm not sure what it is, but I love it!

Just two coats here and the formula was ok. A little tiny bit watery but nothing you can't handle!
