MAC Cosmetics Blue India Nail Polish

MAC Give meof Liberty of London

Blue India does not disappoint ladies. It's a grayed-out or stormy blue creme. It's very chic, unique and just perfect all around. The formula is on the thin side; three coats for most applications.

The closest comparison I have to Blue India is Gray by Gray by Sally Hansen. Although Gray by Gray is much lighter and more grey, it's a nice budget friendly alternative. Click here to check out blue bottle comparisons.    

MAC Vestral White Nail Polish

MAC White Nail Polish

Vestral White is a repromoted shade from Hello Kitty and past MAC collections. It's a bright white creme. Even after three coats, you can see some bare areas on my nails.

You know I had to do it, and how awesome does this look with pokies?

Overall, Blue India rocks! You can probably pass on Vestral White due to its spotty application. If you're looking for a perfect opaque white, look no more - Rescue Beauty Lounge Underwear is for you!

What do you think of Blue India? Did the packaging suck you in?

First of all, I just have to say that every time I see you do polka dots on your nails, it makes me smile. Cute nails get even cuter! Love it.

I really wanted to get MAC Blue India (partially because the packaging was nice, but mostly because I'm really digging grayed-out blues since I don't have anything like it in my collection). But as fate would have it, I found Sally Hansen's Gray by Gray a few days before I was going to buy Blue India, so I decided to go for the budget-friendly option. Haven't tried it yet, but at a low price, it's hard to complain.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,

Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
