Are You Kidding Me?
I absolutely love most of MAC's products, and wear it faithfully, however they have lost their minds when it comes to their nail polish!! The quality is NOWHERE near that of a high end brand to even begin justify charging almost double what they did a few years ago!! The colors are not unique (extremely dupable) and you can get a better formula in some of the other mid end brands. MAC seriously needs to get their heads out of the clouds when it comes to pricing their polishes, what a joke!!

Does not last
I recently purchased a nail lacquer in 'SNOB" color which is a beautiful color. However, after only one day of getting my manicure done it has already chipped and the color on the nail edges is already fading. I wear gloves when washing dishes and cleaning so I know it's the product and not me. Love the color, just does not last at all. I feel it should last more than a day for a $16.00 price tag.

:( disappointed!!!
Tags +Fast drying
I have attempted to use MAC nail lacquers for a few years now. I have about 10 shades all different finishes. I have never had luck with these and I am a nail fanatic!!! I find that these polishes are pretty colors but do not live up to being good quality at all. They are expensive and more expensive than many brands but lack the high performance you would expect. I don't know what MAC is thinking. I would love if the quality was great like the rest of MAC products but its just not. :( I love nail polish and would love to like these but the formula is not good. MAC should team up with a great nail brand and create a nail lacquer with dignity!!!

Mixed
Tags +Fast drying
Some of the colors are really lovely, and the shimmers quite shimmery. However the polish chips away like no tomorrow if an overlaquer is not applied. In addition, the "endless night" polish is more gray/taupe than shimmery or pink as described. Overall I've loved some of my MAC colors but not the best nail polish brand out there. If there's a unique color you're in love with, get it ... plus a top coat.

pricey, but good service
I like ordering from MAC because I always get my order in a short amount of time. $13 is pricey for nail polish, but I keep ordering because of the wonderful service MAC has to offer. I have bought several nail polishes, and the only one I've had a real problem with is the black nail polish, it is very streaky.

Meh..
Tags +Bold Color
I bought this product awhile back in "Gee Whiz". The color is absolutely lovely, a bright pinkish red, but Im a little confused as to what they consider "Long Wearing".
I've applied 2 coats of this color a few different times since owning the product and I find it always starts chipping within a day or so.
I'm not particularly hard on my nails and don't have this problem with other brands. I just feel like for $14, it should have a bit more staying power than it does.

This is great nail enamel- the colors are beautiful and intense, especially Vintage Vamp and Nightfall. Good wear, and chip- resistant- especially with a top coat.

This polish has a great look but it dries so fast that it makes it hard not to make the nail polish finish look clumpy.

there are better..
In general, there's nothing really special about MAC nail polishes. I don't see the point in paying $16 whereas I can get the same quality and color for half the price elsewhere. They're not bad polishes but they're just not worth the money.

Toes Only
Tags +Bold Color, Fast drying
Love the color and packaging of this product. I applied this nail polish to both my nails, and toes- polish never chipped on my toes. My nails however, did not last- I didn't even do anything- I went to shop, and my polish began chipping within two hours. I do love how fast drying this product is however.

Okay
Tags +Bold Color
I bought the "Spirit of Truth" shade when it first came out as a part of the Wonder Woman collection. I really like the strong color. The problem is that the color stains my nails and the surronding skin a shade of blue. I also don't feel it is long lasting.

Dark Angel
Love the color, hate the price. However, its a nice treat. Beautiful, very romantic color. I like the weight of the brush. it's heavier than most. Thin small /med brush. The bad part is that you need to apply 2-3 coats for the color to look like the bottle.

Sandpiper *Iris Aphel
Tags +Long wearing, Fast drying, Chip resistent, everyday
Let me tell you, I am super excited I was able to get sandpiper, I love it. It's the perfect nude polish for me, sure I have to apply it in 3 coats but I don't mind, I build it to an opaque finish that I prefer. The color looks so good it's the color I have been looking for, the wear on me averages about two weeks with minimal chipping and the streak-free finish is to die for.

Pretty but...
Tags +special ocassions
I ordered the Vintage Vamp and while stunning in color and clarity I was disappointed that after only one day on, my polish chipped. By day three I had to remove it. This is an excellent color but please remember it is not chip resistant and is best worn for short term use.
