MAC Cosmetics Sugarsweet: Nail Polish Swatches
Seasonal Peach is a perfect example of a fabulous color gone completely wrong. The shade itself is extremely pretty, but the application is a hot mess. If you'll notice in my swatches above, the color has visible streaking - even with three coats.
Described as a pastel peach cream with pink undertones. Seriously, it's really hard not to love this color because it's gorgeous and just pops against warmer skintones.
Most of us will probably be torn on whether to order this color or not due to the bad application.
I do like it though. You could always put Seasonal Peach to work with creative nail art such as polka dots! I've posted some nail art examples below.
Peppermint Patti is everything I expected and more. The color pops and I just love it. And, if your having second thoughts about this one - don't. The color is fabulous. More than likely, you'll be kicking yourself in the behind for not grabbing this sooner.
Described as a true minty green pastel that was a dream applying compared to Seasonal Peach. So, the application isn't completely perfect with very minor streaking. But, surely a 50% improvement from Seasonal Peach.
The most obvious possible alternative, OPI - Hey get in Lime. Not an exact dupe though, but pretty darn close. OPI's version has more lime green undertones compared to MAC's true minty green.
Here's some polka dot nail art below that I did with both colors.
How cute do the colors go together?! Seasonal Peach my be worth the purchase just for the dots.
Hopefully most of you guys were able to snatch Peppermint Patti before it sold out. If not, try checking at your local counters, Macy's or Nordies online.
What did everyone end up getting from Sugar Sweet?

I do love Peppermint Patti! This color is perfect for spring and makes me enjoy the sun more! Not to mention I applied it Thursday night and am a perpetual hand washer, but almost 2 days later it still looks great! Thanks for the suggestion on the samples for Channel and I will give it a shot. I have yet to buy one of their lacquers so now I have more reason to go to the counter!

omg. I had the same problem with seasonal peach. I HATED the application. with 3 coats wtill streaking. I had to put coats. Rediculous... wich is why I returned it. I don't know anyone smart enough to buy an $11 nail polishwhen there are a million different colours and brands out there, I'm sure you can find a DUPE for seasonal peach.
