MAC Studded!

MAC Studded, three coats, with flash

For today's post, I have a recently released MAC polish that I'm really excited about. Studded is a silvery gray polish along the same lines as the OPI Suedes and Zoya Matte Velvets. For those of you who don't own any of those polishes, WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU? No, I'm just kidding. The OPI Suedes, Matte Velvets and MAC Studded are all matte polishes with a bit of sparkle. A lot of people don't like the flat, dull look of a true matte polish, but these have a very textured, beautiful look. They also dry in seconds, which is wonderful for us crazy busy people! (By the way, I apologize for the little cat scratch on my finger... my fur baby didn't want his ear drops LOL)

The downside of matte and matte sparkle polishes is that they chip and show tipwear very quickly. If you're like me and change your polish every day, this is not a problem LOL. If you're looking for a 10 day chip-free mani, look elsewhere.

The formula was great on this. MAC polishes are sometimes streaky or goopy, but not Studded. It applied easily and was completely opaque in three coats. For me, Studded is a Must-Have for this spring!!

MAC Studded is available online at MAC Cosmetics or at your local MAC counter (find your local MAC online at MAC Cosmetics).

In other Never Enough Nails news, I finally ordered a Konad Starter Kit and two image plates!!! I'm hoping that will arrive in just a few days, and you can expect to see loads of pictures! My first attempts at Konad-ing will be fails, I'm sure, but I'll learn!

That is a really cool polish, but not having any protection from tipwear would drive me nuts. *type type type* I wonder if a good quality matte topcoat would work. /ramble

I can definitely test that out for you Skulda. Awhile back I tested a regular matte polish with matte top coat and without matte top coat, and the chipping was slightly less with the top coat. These shimmer mattes are a bit hardier than regular mattes, so maybe a topcoat will really help!

Shoot - I was just at mac yesterday picking up Blue India (whew! Last ones at the store! I put two on hold two hours before the store opened - one for me and one for my polish friend - bday in two weeks) and didn't even know about this one. Gonna have to go back!

Ahhhhh I passed on Blue India and I feel I may someday regret it. I just didn't feel like I needed it. IDK, I think I'm just bored with cremes this year.
But now that I'm getting my Konad, I'm imagining how nice a white design on top of Blue India would be....
