First and foremost, thank you all for your lovely Birthday wishes over Twitter and email. I've had a fantastic couple of days celebrating, and it looks like tomorrow evening will round it off for another solid year in the books!
I picked up a nail polish a few weeks ago, only to get around to using it this week. While I was having a look at MAC's Venomous Villains collection last week (of which I'm completely uninterested..phew!), something struck the familiarity bone.
MAC's Mean & Green Satin nail varnish, is a fitting shade for a collection that revolves around Disney villains. It's dark, but not black. The fade into darkness thing, is precisely what drew me in.
However, Orly's Space Cadet is...wait...exactly the same color. And it was released first. So who's copying who? No matter, because they are both gorgeous and a tad difficult to get your hands on. Only a couple of dollars apart in price, either one is a good bet--although the rubber handle and consistent formula of Orly, earns it a couple of extra stars.
The multi-chrome finish changes, depending on which way the light hits it. Complex and intriguing, I've found myself repeatedly twisting my hands to observe how the purples and greens and pinks pop out. The comments have been humorous--today in the Starbuck's drive-through, the barista dropped her jaw and then said "Alright. What color?"
Poor Larry. He thought he was just joining me for a coffee. Little did he know that he would soon have the wonders of concealer revealed to him. For reasons like this, anyone who knows me will tell you to stay far far away from my "coffee dates"...
Are you purchasing anything from MAC's Venomous Villains collection? What are your thoughts on dual/multi-chrome polishes?
