MAC Style Warrior: Nail Polish Swatches
This summer, MAC introduces three new nail polishes to the Style Warrior collection. Peaceable - a light champange metallic frost, Violet Fire - a purple with pink and blue subtle shimmer and Mercenary - a gorgeous bronze with gold shimmer.
Peaceable was nothing special nor unique, and you could probably skip out on this one. Plus, it was a metallic frost, which I don't do well with anyways.
Check out some swatches below.
The end result of Violet Purple is really pretty. But, the issue is getting to that point. The formula applied like a sheer jelly. Looking at the bottle, I would have never guessed it's sheerness. It took four coats to even out. Either way I applied this one, I couldn't get away from four coats.
There's only one way to describe Mercenary, super duper hotness! A bronze loaded down with gold shimmer that's absolultey stunning and the bread winner from the Style Warrior collection.
Check out a comparison swatch below.
For those who missed out on Dior's Gold Nugget last summer, now is the perfect time to stock up on a great alternative. Mercenary, not an exact dupe to Gold Nugget, but close. Dior's is just a tinge more gold compared to MAC's. Both equally gorgeous.
The Style Warrior collection is now available for a limited time online and at MAC stores.

Well I bought Violet Fire and I'm not happy to hear that it's sheer. I wish I had bought Mercenary. Darn! I really like that color.

ohh darn! I really like violet fire in the pics. Do you have a suggestion for a similar color that applies better? TIA!

I was running low on Gold Nugget, which is one of my fave polishes of all time - thank goodness for Mercenary! Do you find the lasting power as good as Gold Nugget?

Hi Katie, I just happened to have one of Walmart's new colors out, No Means No. It's a bit darker than Violet Fire, but nonetheless gorgeous! The application is much better too! Check your Walmart :)

I am loving violet fire!!! p.s. Peaceable is almost an identical dupe to NYC's In a New York Minute in 212B Mulberry Street.

Your cuticles are so perfect. Can you tell me how I can accomplish that? I love the Dior Gold Nugget, thanks for the pics! Anna
