MAC Nail Trend A/W ’10

Yay, new nail shades for Autumn! But before I dash out and part with my money I will ponder over which I actually want. No Amy, you don’t need them all! I read that Jin Soon’s inspiration for this season’s nail trends are from Imperial China. This makes me want them more, surely exotic nail polishes are fancier? :)

Overlacquer, Earthly Harmony, Imperial Flower, Ming Blue, Jade Dragon, Concubine, Rain of Flowers.

Here are a couple of pointers about the range – 1. They need a few coats to get even coverage 2. Apparently they dry a little flat so a top coat is necessary (sure they have to sell Overlacquer now don’t they) and 3. The consistency is on the thin side in some.

That being said I find myself pondering on which to add to my collection. I’m not too excited about Concubine which is a ruby shade with  scarlet shimmer flecks. Although the colour appeals to me it’s a real case of ‘been there, done that’. I think I’ll give it a miss. Imperial Flower looks interesting. It’s an orange with flecks of gold and orange shimmer. It sounds so tacky but somehow I’m drawn to it. Not sure if I’ll have the guts for this one though!

I have bought so many taupe shades this year that there is no way I should buy Earthly Harmony . I’m usually terrified of blue shades but I find myself drawn to Ming Blue – maybe it’s the shimmer factor!  Jade Dragon (deep forest green with flecks of green-teal shimmer) and Rain of Flowers (black-purple base with flecks of violet shimmer) are definites for me. They’re different to anything I have in my collection already…at least that’s what I’m telling myself.

This nail polish rant actually increased my heart rate. Man I’m sad.

Hopefully sad with a delightful bag of new nail polishes. Soon my pretties!

Are you planning on picking up new nail polish shades for Autumn or will you be making use of what you’ve got?
