MAC Cult of Cherry: Nail Polish Swatches
MAC in Illegal Purple is a blackened deep cherry that applied ultra glossy and flawless. The cult of cherry color story described this color as a blackened eggplant purple which you'll see in the first coats but, after that, it's all about chocolate cherries.
Although, this is just your typically black cherry creme - it's very stunning. Initially, Illegal Purple was just oh, *yawn* but, sporting this shade around has me thinking differently. One particular thing I loved, is the ultra glossy formula - it's chic and goes perfectly with the cult of cherry theme.
Candid shot of Illegal Purple - I love how super glossy this formula is!
I didn't waste my time trying to get a good picture because it wasn't happening. Silverstruck's such a unique shade - there's no capturing the true beauty, honestly. Ok, here's a go - a taupeish gray frost that has red, gold, green flicks of shimmer. The red shimmer gives this taupe shade a copperish red metallic undertone - truely unique.
The texture reminds me of Chanel in Kaleidoscope except with a taupe base color and green, red, gold shimmer flecks. My swatches were applied with three coats with no application issues. You'll start to notice a copper reddish metallic finish when 3 or more coats are applied.
I had to post this because it's the craziest picture! Within the multi-second of the flash - this critter felt the need to jump in. The cult of cherry nail polishes will be available on August 21st at freestanding stores and maccosmetics.com.

Aww, thanks Mhean! :0) Both shades are very pretty. I use an older sony cybershot (it's about 2 yrs old) and love it. It's been through everything. Dropped at the MAC store vigorous occasions while swatching and still survied somehow.
