| Midsummer’s Dream | Pale pink lilac | $16 US, $19 CAD | Limited Edition| 10mL
Light, milky, soft neutral pink. I like this shade, but it’s nothing I haven’t seen before from any of the major polish companies. The closest dupe I have is China Glaze’s Something Sweet, which is more vivid and slightly bluer, and I actually prefer it that way. Midsummer’s Dream applied nice and smooth, and was opaque in 2 coats.
| Play Day | Pale Milky Coral | $16 US, $19 CAD | Limited Edition | 10mL
I loooove coral polishes. This one’s a bit more orange than China Glaze’s IV, but it’s close enough for me. I found Play Day a bit streaky, it took 3 coats to get it right.
- Applies smoothly
- Fun shades for spring
- Easy shades to wear for most folks
- The price. MAC, are you serious?
- Thin brush (I find large brushes like OPI a lot easier to work with)
- Play Day was a bit streaky
Meh. IMO, there’s nothing to go crazy over. Thanks to my China Glaze dupes, I passed on both lacquers.
