This review covers the 2 MAC MAC Me Over nail polishes from Part III of the collection.
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.
Quiet Time is a slightly beige-y nude color, perfect for work-wear. Its light color means you need to use at least 3 coats to get an opaque finish. Fatigues is an army green color that you can get away with using 2 coats of.
Both colors are cream finishes, meaning they have a jelly-bean like sheen without having any shimmer.
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 of Fatigues and 3 coats of Quiet Time to make the color even.
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.
