Nail of the Day: MAC Oriele Orange

Today's NOTD is Oriele Orange, a polish from the new MAC & Iris Apfel collection. This is a coral red creme that reminds me a lot of OPI Cajun Shrimp (one of my favorites). The formulation of this seemed much better than MAC polishes I've used in the past... it was nearly perfect! I used two coats for the photo below, but one coat was almost entirely opaque.

natural light, 2 coats

I love the name of this, as well with the rest of the collection, because it was bird inspired. This will be a great polish to pair with the lipsticks from this collection for spring and summer!

Would you wear it?
xx, Allison

  13. Hi Allison!

    I have a great tip for you, when it comes to nails :) Dont' paint your WHOLE nails. Leave a smal space from the right and left side of each. It's like reshaping your nails! They will look much more elegant and optically longer!

    Btw, I adore your tutorials on YouTube. You are my favourite beauty guru! And I love your sense of humor :)

    Have a lovely day!

  14. It's an interesting color, but I think it'll look boring, if not terrible on me. I've never seen many MAC nailpolishes so I'm glad you posted this!

  19. Most nail polishes don't look good on me because I'm pale, but I'm going to look into this one. Are MAC nail polishes worth it?

    Also check out my blog please!!

  23. Good to know the consistency is better in terms of MAC polishes. I have 2 and was initially v. disappointed with how goopy they were :( Hopefully that's changed! xx

  25. Thanks for the post Allison! would you say its worth taking a look at if I already own Cajun Shrimp, or should I just save my money for something else?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would save your money. The MAC polish is $15 anyway, which is a lot to spend on a color you already have a pretty close dupe of. Just my opinion though! :)
