MAC "Russian Red" Nail Lacquer

MAC Russian Red is - hands down - my favorite nail polish that MAC released in 2012. It's not that special colorwise, it doesn't do funky things in different lighting, it's even extremely dupable, but still, I love it against my skintone and it's nearly opaque in one coat - I used two here, though.

Russian Red came out with the Lips & Tips Fashion Sets Collection in May, I was really hoping MAC would make it permanent with the Nail Lacquer Collection but they didn't. I'm sure it will pop up in some colorstory sooner or later!

The only downside: it chips pretty easily, I think I should note that. But nevertheless, it's a beautiful classic red cream that applies evenly and opaquely. I have been wearing it on my toes almost all summer!

For the swatches here I used:
1 coat of Essence Nail Art Protecting Base Coat
2 coats of MAC Russian Red
 1 coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Coat

A very pretty red polish! If I wouldn't have 242435234 already, I might have bought it also. LOL But I agree with you, it does look very nice with your skin tone. :)
