MAC Style Black Nail Lacquer Swatches & Review
The Style Black collection three Nail Lacquer shades include new hues Baby Goth Girl and Seriously Hip and repromote Nocturnelle. Nocturnelle was originally released in 2006 in the collection of the same name and then reproduced for Smoke Signals (click to view) in 2007 which is when I reviewed it.
Both of the new polishes applied very well. I was impressed with the pigmentation and flow of the formula. What’s really cool about these is that rather than use traditional glitter it’s more irregular shaped like flakes. I know flakies have been a big hit with the nail board community and it seems they’re transitioning into mainstream brands this season.
Seriously Hip is a blackened gold-green that reminds me of kelp. It’s a little dirty and rough feeling with the gold flakes adding a subtle glitz. I’m a sucker for anything that even remotely leans green so I’m all about it.
Baby Goth Girl is a deep red plum peppered with copper flakes, a very fun combo. My only disappointment is that the pops of copper aren’t as prevalent on the nail as they are in the bottle.
I’m amazed that the Style Black polishes haven’t sold out yet. Normally these types of colors fly off the website in days. So if these are must haves for your collection, snag them now at MAC counters nationwide and online at MACCosmetics.com. MAC Nail Lacquers retail for $10/ea.
