Weekend Beauty- Nail Polish: MAC Love & Friendship

MAC released a new collection, Rose Romance, which includes one nail polish, Love & Friendship, described officially as "creamy dirty mid-tone lavender". I'd describe it as dusty mid-tone pink-purple. The shade is fabulous enough to warrant a whole post all to itself. The dusty-dirty element makes it ever so contemporary, and yet there is something vaguely and endearingly old-fashioned about this muted color. I call it edgy lady-like.

If I had to compare it to other polishes, I'd venture that it reminded me somewhat of Nubar Isis, however Love & Friendship is less pink and more purple. The polish required 3 coats to satisfy my obsession with total non-transparency, but it applied evenly and smoothly. This is the first MAC polish that I really liked, although I am sure that if I ever manage to get my mitts on elusive Peppermint Patty, sparkles would fly as well.

Also in MAC news, seven Dazzleglass lip glosses were introduced earlier this month, one of them Like Venus, "clean light bubble gum pink with red pearl". Don't be scared by the "bubble gum" in the description, it is not that bright on the lips, but it is a fun shade of pink which isn't boring to wear on its own and which livens up any lipstick.

Both are available at MAC counters and at, $11.00 and $18.00 respectively.

Soooo very petty, Marina! And my goodness, I think you will soon need to start the occasional lingerie post, and tell us your sources!

This is a really nice shade, very wearable for anyone, I should think. Maybe I should start wearing polish, I'm missing out!

Lovely shade..It almost looks like Sephora by OPI Call your mother (or atleast how 'call my mother' looks on my toe nails- the online swatches of it look very different)
