Review | MAC Nail Lacquer in Jade Dragon

September 6, 2010
By

One of my favourite polishes from the Jin Soon for MAC Nail Trend Autumn/Winter 2010 collection, MAC Nail Lacquer in Jade Dragon (S$19) stole my heart as soon as I saw it at the counter.

Although it looks shimmery in the bottle, it has an almost creamy finish and the teal micro-shimmer is only visible under strong lighting. It is this quality that makes it a sophisticated colour, setting it apart from most shimmer polishes. It applies smoothly but is only somewhat opaque with two coats – three would be perfect for a more even – deeper – appearance. I like how it sets off my skin tone; the contrast seems to make my fingers look clean and fair.

A word of warning though: This polish can stain the nails, so prepare your acetone and buffing blocks!

    Ooh it’s such a nice color! I’m wearing a similar color right now: Zoya Akyra.

      Hi Lora,

      Zoya has some amazing greens. One of my favourites is Zoya Suvi. :)

    I’ve worn Ming Blue and it has that same type of shimmer. These seem to be a better consistency than past MAC nail polishes too. But it was difficult to get Ming Blue off because it seemed to stain so watch out for that.
