MAC Cosmetics Love Lace: Nail Lacquer Swatches
|Product: MAC Love Lace Collection, Nail Lacquer .34 oz|
|Buy it: MAC Cosmetics, Macy's, Nordies|
Couture's fascination with lace is a long love affair. Intensely intimate, our newest collection captures lace's notoriety and allure.
When I first saw the promo images for MAC's newest collection, I immediately thought of J Lo's chic lace nails created by Celebrity Manicurist, Elle. Love Lace brings us a limited edition shade this winter called, Light Affair. A crisp, clean neutral that's the perfect accessory to Lace.
Before we move on, let's talk about the application. It wasn't completely perfect. I had minor application issues, but managed to smooth out my brush strokes within three coats.
Check out the swatches.
MAC describes Light Affair as a creamy grey taupe. It's more along the lines of a pale grey nude with a hint of lavender that's barely noticeable. Very chic and wearable.
Even though it's hard to tell from my swatch, Light Affair isn't an exact dupe to Body Language. The faint lavender shines through just a bit when compared side by side. If you already own Essie's, I'd say you can probably skip this one.
Put your hands up if you love Polka Dots. Oh, yeah! I love how Cool Reserve contrasts the slight lavender undertones in Light Affair.
Has anyone picked up Light Affair? What do you think of lace nails? Have a wonderful night!
