Nail of the Day: MAC Immortal Gold

Being the MAC hoarder I am, I can't explain why I didn't buy my first MAC nail polish until this month. I guess I've always felt like brands such as OPI and Essie were probably just as good for half the price. However, I cracked and bought both nail polishes MAC featured in their Posh Paradise collection.

This polish, Immortal Gold, is an olive-toned gold foil, and while the description (in my opinion) sounds hideous, I actually quite like it. It literally reminds me of the color of olive oil, and something inside me has decided that wearing this shade on my nails is acceptable. This is definitely a fall/winter shade for me... I don't see myself wearing this much in warmer months.

natural light, 2 coats

I was pleasantly surprised with the consistency of this polish. For some reason, I expected it to be really awful. Maybe because nail polish isn't really MAC's specialty, I thought it would be below par? This polish went on with no problems, and two coats was plenty for full opacity!

Because MAC polishes are still on the pricey side ($15), I don't see myself racing out to buy more, but it is nice to feel like if I do see a really great color from MAC, I can expect decent quality to come with it.

What is your favorite brand of nail polish?

  7. My favorite brand is OPI because of their consistency! I LOVE essie as well, but the brush is a bit small and sometimes I find that you need several coats to get to the polish color in the bottle. Recently, I purchased my first Butter London polishes and I am obsessed with the color selection AND the names ;) In fact, Wallis looks similar to this color you are wearing you should definitely check it out it is VERY unique! Thanks for sharing :)
