NOTD - MAC Mean & Green

I was thrilled to spot this iridescent beauty back on MAC counters during a recent visit. Mean & Green was originally part of the 2010 Venomous Villains collection that brought me my other favourite MAC polish, Fomidable but I never managed to bag this or Bad Fairy (that one still haunts me) until now.  

You see MAC have brought back 31 polishes and added them to their permanent collection, you can check out swatches of the others over on the lovely Christine of Temptalia's blog. Once I saw this beauty though, I knew it had to be mine. 

I would never be able to take enough photos to truly show you the beauty of this polish. It's a deep plum in a green jelly base with green, gold and purple sparkle and dimensions ready to leap off the nail every time the light hits it a different way. It's very Orly Space Cadet. 

My one bugbear with this polish though is the ridiculously fast tip wear, within 24-48 hours it's rubbing off but just look at those colours. It's mesmerising on the nail, so much so that I've forgiven it for its fickle ways. 

MAC polishes are priced at €12.50, with the 31 new(ish) additions available on counter now. Have you tried any yet?

OMG that is absolutely gorgeous, heading to London next week so will definately look out for this, do u think i could get this in the Airport T1???

I love this but it is rather reminiscent of some of the Models Own Beetlejuice Collection (only double the price). 'Pinky Brown' I think is a little like this.

It should be A, TheLoop.ie are hoping to get MAC online in the coming week. Hopefully you can see before you fly :)

Hi Dani, you're right, the final colour is similar to Pinky Brown but there's no comparison in the formulation. MAC is better in every way.

I was very dissapointed in the Beetlejuice collection unfortunately, they make better top coats than polishes in their own right :/

I just can not WAIT to get this!
Sue, you are one hell of a woman, you have convinced me NOT to wear red nail varnish all the time
