Review & Swatches: MAC Me Over (Part II) Nail Lacquers

MAC Me Over Nail Lacquers

Limited Edition
Release Date: August 25, 2011
Availability: MAC online & MAC stores

This review covers the 2 MAC MAC Me Over nail polishes from Part II of the collection.

  • Deep Sea (cream): Deep teal (Limited Edition)
  • Purple Majesty (cream): Deep purple (Limited Edition)

Packaging: 8.5/10

These polishes come in standard glass MAC jars with rubbery-plastic twist-off caps. I think the design is a little funny (the jars narrow as you go top-to-bottom), but this is a completely personal preference, so I don’t consider that in determining a score. What I do consider is the bulkiness of the top, which is what you hold onto when you’re applying the polish. It’s wide, which makes it more awkward to hold onto when you’re applying.

Quality: 9/10

Deep Sea is an interesting, deep teal color, but applied quite unevenly on the first coat. Purple Majesty is a beautiful dark raspberry color that also applies unevenly on the first coat, but fares better than Deep Sea.

Both colors are cream finishes, meaning they have a jelly-bean like sheen without having any shimmer.

Ease of Use: 8.75/10

MAC’s polishes have a long plastic brush applicator. The applicator’s length gives you less control over the application than a shorter brush would.

You’ll need to apply 2 coats to make the color even.

Price: 7/10

Standard MAC nail polishes used to be $14.00 each and still contain 0.34 fl oz. They now cost $15.00 each. I really feel like $14.00 is too much to pay for one nail polish, let alone $15.00. Even high-end nail polish companies like OPI, China Glaze, and Essie don’t charge that much for their nail polishes.

    I find the rubbery texture of the caps to be a little difficult, to work with as well (when screwing the top on and off, and sometimes when you’re holding it and trying to apply it) I guess the rubbery feel is supposed to be comfortable, but I find it a little awkward.
    I’m surprised that I’m saying this, but I like both these colors! I wasn’t expecting to!
    You’re totally right about these being way too expensive. At least they’re not $16 like Deborah Lippmann or $25 like Chanel though!
