A highly chic Barbie pink.
Pink is a colour that’s commonly associated with young girls – it’s cute, pretty, and very, very girly. So when I received MAC’s ‘Steamy’ pink nail lacquer from a friend I was slightly worried that I may look like a child who’s just discovered nail varnish for the first time. But I needn’t have worried because ‘Steamy’ isn’t anything like the cheap pink polish that I had years ago. It’s a gorgeously creamy and sexy hot pink colour with a glossy shine finish.
I haven’t tried any MAC nail lacquers before, but this has to be one of the best polishes I’ve tried in terms of chipping. It was two days before the first tiny chip occurred (something that I consider to be an achievement when I’m always so busy doing things) and now six days after application over half of my nails are still chip free. If I’d used a top coat then I’m sure that my nails would have remained chip-resistant for at least another couple of days! Another thing that I really liked with this lacquer is that the brush wand is a really good length, making application less fiddly, and giving the ability for a neater finish.
This is a wonderful colour for fingers or toes, and it’s super for brightening up a cold, dull day and getting you in the mood for spring. The colour will go with almost anything so it’s brilliantly versatile too, and you can wear it day or night. It’s a real favourite of mine and I’m sure I’ll be wearing it a lot in the coming months.
