MAC Nail Transformations
MAC Nail Transformations are a series of top coats created by Marian Newman – one of the most experienced women in the nail industry. The collection consists of eight top coats which change either the colour or the texture of your existing nail colour. Having never used a MAC lacquer before I was really impressed with the packaging. The rubberised lid makes it easy to open the lacquer. The brush is quite short which gives lots of control on my short nails and it is easy to get three swipes of colour. The formula is self-levelling so even if your application is a little streaky you get an even finish.
Shadow is a sheer black colour which deepens your existing nail colour. The effect is very very very subtle. The swatch shows two coats of the Shadow and colour is hardly changed. It’s really disappointing on two counts; firstly because the transformation is soooo subtle, but secondly because the other colours in the range have such great effects. I love the idea of transformations but in my opinion the greatest impact is from the blue pearl and the pink pearl. If you get a chance to try them in store it is well worth it.
Shadow is available from a variety of MAC Cosmetics stockists for £10.
