NOTD: MAC Imperial Green - Bao Bao Wan


Haga click aquí para la versión en castellano.

Helloooo there! How are you? Today I have a short post for you just to show you my NOTD, because I am in love with this shade "Imperial Green" from the MAC Bao Bao Wan LE collection launched in March, and some of you have asked me a while ago if I could show it here. So here it is!!

This is my first MAC nail polish. In fact MAC does not have a good reputation making nail polish in the blogger world, so I never really felt the need to buy one of them until this lovely green stole my heart! This is two easy coats of Imperial green awesomeness!


The application was easier than I expected, I've seen reviews on one other color of the same collection and they weren't positive. I did not have any particular problems of application, in fact I found the brush very practical, and leaving almost no traces on the polish despite of being kind of a metallic shade. It dried decently fast and I it has a very nice glow! I did not applied a topcoat on this one and it still looks neat!

I do not have dupes for this one in my collection, although Essence Roller coaster is a very similar hue, it does not compare to Imperial green one, because the Essence only has a very subtle shimmer and not at all a metallic look,


So, what do you think about it for this Spring/Summer? Yay or nein? I'm really loving it, it' s so glowy under the sun! Let me know your thoughts about it :)

Love,
Nati

  13. OOO this is such a summer-appropriate shade! I like how it doesn't seem too streaky even though the finish is metallic. I haven't had the best experience with MAC nail polishes, but maybe they are finally working on the formula :)

    1. hey sunny! I've seen swatches of the brown shade from this same collection and they were eeeek! so they're still not consistent in their formulation, alas. I guess I hit the jackpot with this one ;)

    1. Yes Mila, you are right, MAC polishes are quite infamous, this is in fact my first one from the brand, and I am happy it turned out right, I guess I was lucky ;)

  18. Hermoso! No soy fan de los verdes, pero ultimamente los acabados metalizados me hacen ojitos, jajaj.
    Que lindo cuando tienes todas las reseñas de la web en contra, pero sigues esa corazonada y termina saliendo bien, te hace creer de nuevo en el amor a primera vista :P Besos Nati!

  21. Di solito snobbo gli smalti MAC perché la loro qualità non è all'altezza del loro prezzo, ma questo qui è davvero meraviglioso!
