Amor de Lacquer: MAC Nail Trend FW09 by Jin Soon

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to

Hey peeps! So I did an impromptu poll of nail polishes collections I should review next. And guess who won?

Mickity mickity MAC!

I’m so lame….lol.

But really…it’s been awhile since I’ve played around with MAC Cosmetics. It’s not that I don’t love them anymore. I just enjoy exploring other brands. Namely the cheaper *cough* brands. Jin Soon for MAC had me swooning when I first saw the swatches at All Lacquered Up (hey Michelle!). She gave the collection some serious justice. But I felt compelled to only snag three polishes. For Fun, Dance All Around and Dark, Rich, Delicious seemed to be pretty dupe-able.

Check out my trio!

Cool Reserve is described as a dirty grey lavender. It is quite reminiscent of Zoya’s Malia. Malia is a little darker though. I have a weak spot for purples…especially lilacs.

Beyond Jealous is described as a blackened blue green. Ohhh weee, it does my heart content. I wish it was more green than black though. In the bottle in daylight it looks dark green.

And even on the nails it looks green-y.

But without a flash….

Black! It’s fiyah nonethless.

Dry Martini is described as a khaki olive green. I knew right off the bat that I wasn’t really going to like it on my nails. But I wanted to get it anyway. I love funky colors like this–even if I don’t think they compliment my nails well. Dry Martini kinda looks like mud on my nails but somehow…I like it.

But then the weekend hit and I had to top it off with yellow polka dots.

I only have two other MAC nail polishes. And I don’t remember them being this impeccable. They dry REALLY quickly. I applied two coats with each and by the time I was done with each hand, the other was already dry. One time for MAC!

Buy these and more for $12/bottle at

Diggin’ em? Passin’ em on by? Whatcha think?

Your fellow nail polish junkie,

    nice! I agree with you that the ones you got are the least dupable, I got myself cool reserve as I think beyond jealous is too close to sephora by OPI dark room to justify both… LOVE DM on you, looked like poop on me :) and nice blog

    I picked up Dry Martini and Beyond Jealous! But I got home and compared them with similar polishes. These colors just seem dupes to me. But regardless, they look ROCKIN on your nails :)
