It’s been some time already that MAC’s Glamour Daze collection is out. But I’ve been quite busy recently so it’s only now that I had some time to do a review. Here it is: MAC Everything That Glitters Nail Lacquer.

MAC Glamour Daze Holiday 2012

Packaging and design: 8 out of 10.

The packaging of this nail lacquer is not different from all the others: basic glass with black matte top. It’s very simple just as we’re used to from MAC. This nail polish has 10 ml of product inside.

Brush: 6 out of 10.

I didn’t like this brush. I mean, there are worse brushes. For example, I hate the brushes from Orly nail polishes. But this one is quite bad also: it’s quite hard to draw an even line close to your cuticles. Definitely not for nail novices.

Texture: 6 out of 10.

The texture is quite liquid. Because of a lot of glitters in this polish it’s quite hard to achieve an even coverage. At the same time, the glitters itself are evenly spread. It’s just that the color base is not even enough. It leaves stripes. Even with 2 layers applied. Especially on the nail tips: I had to apply an extra coat there. Also, when the polish dries up it feels kinda rough when you touch it. It looks rough as well (you can see that on some of the photos). I felt like applying a matte top coat: I quite liked the effect, it makes the screaming glitters somewhat more subtle. Nails felt smooth with matte top coat.

Color: 10 out of 10.

I bought this lacquer just because of its shade: it’s so gorgeous! It has dark grey base, almost black. The glitters are of different sizes. The bigger ones are in fuchsia, blue neon. The smaller glitters are in gold and dark orange. It is so beautiful and reminds me of Christmas and holidays! It is even more beautiful under direct sunlight. Love it!

Overall opinion

I am a bit disappointed in this polish. Mostly because of its texture and brush quality. I didn’t like the application. But I will wear it as I’m in love with those glitters. They’re so pretty and quite unusual! It does look pretty on your nails, I’ve heard couple of compliments about my manicure when I was wearing this polish. Also, I liked wearing a matte top coat over it.

Overall mark: 7 out of 10.
