NOTD: MAC Venomous Villains Bad Fairy Nail Lacquer Review & Swatches
MAC Cosmetics produced three gorgeous shades of nail lacquer for the Venomous Villains Collection. Am sure you've seen my previous swatch with Formidable! Nail Lacquer. Today features Bad Fairy Nail Lacquer. Bad Fairy is a sparklelicious shade of burgundy red with dazzling red pearl. it's very eye catching and sure to grab attention.
The formula on this nail lacquer is even thinner than most other MAC nail polishes I own. I found I needed 5 coats for almost opaque coverage. I was still able to see visible nail color at 4 coats, so I did 5. It does dry quickly though. I was done my nails in 20 minutes despite the number of coats. I would absolutely suggest a good top coat as well. While the nail polish doesn't chip off readily, it sort of rubs off against paper without a top coat. (Experience from doing top coat on one hand, but not the other. Ooops! ;)
I was lucky enough to take pictures on a sunny day where it dazzled in the light. The first photo is indoors with fluorescent lighting, while the second and third photo are outside in the early afternoon sun.
Unfortunately, this shows as being sold out online, however some MAC counters and stores may have some still around. Enjoy the swatches and hope everyone can get a Bad Fairy. :)
