NOTD: MAC in Lillyland Coconut Ice Review & Swatches

As pretty as glitter can be for a manicure, Spring is on its way! The limited edition MAC in Lillyland Collection features two gorgeous shades of nail polish. Steamy is a permanent shade from MAC, so I skipped out on that. It is a hot fuchsia pink that reminds me of Something About Pink Nail Lacquer from last year's MAC Hello Kitty Collection. Of course, I had to pick up Coconut Ice.

Coconut Ice is described as, "Light yellow peach pink" in a cream finish. I found that it's more of a medium pink shade than a light pink. It has distinct yellow undertones that verge on orange. However it is a lovely lively shade would be perfect for Spring and Summer. The downfall to this polish is that does apply relatively sheer and requires at least 3-4 coats for opaque coverage. Unfortunately for me (at least), it does show the ridges of nails even when I apply Seche Vite Clear Base Coat. In the future, I think a ridge filling base coat will do the trick. For reference, I used Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat and 4 thin coats of polish. Enjoy the pictures :)


  1. It looks a bit streaky but other than that, I'm loving the colour! XO

  2. Yea, it's unfortunate! I think I need to pile on a lot of base coat to make it look smoother.
