Agreed. These look like they'd be a PITA to remove, not worth it in my opinion.

I don't think that has been posted yet:

Strangely there are not any obvious dupes for them. I thought Earthly Harmony would be pretty much a dupe for CG Ingrid but it seems that they're quite different.
Oh well, my list just grew more..

Exactly. This is a skip for me now. More money saved, I guess.

I was going to pass on these, but I got Ming Blue. I haven't tried it yet, but it's so pretty in the bottle, I couldn't resist!

Re: MAC - Nail Trend F/W 2010 Discussion

Temptalia's swatches REALLY make me want Jade Dragon and Rain of Flowers especially. But, I must stay strong!!!! Staining isn't worth it.

Re: MAC - Nail Trend F/W 2010 Discussion

^ I agree! Or else I'd get one

I am thinking about Earthly Harmony but not sure if I'll get any...it's purrrty though! Hmmm...decisions, descions!

Re: MAC - Nail Trend F/W 2010 Discussion

I am really glad I only bought two colors from this collection (Jade Dragon and Earthly Harmony) due to staining reports in various reviews. I think the staining happened with the darker colors. I was going to get Rain of Flowers, but decided against it. Glad I did(for the staining reason only, not the color)!

Re: MAC - Nail Trend F/W 2010 Discussion

How much staining can they do if you use a base coat? My dark Chanels and dark China Glazes would probably stain as well if I didn't use a base coat. Are these worse?

In any case, I bought Ming Blue. Concubine and Imperial Flower. I'll swatch them and let everyone know if they stain with a base coat.

I don't want to do it now since I have a lovely mani-pedi I just finished and I don't want to take it off just yet.

i never wear a base coat so i have no idea.

Re: MAC - Nail Trend F/W 2010 Discussion

They shouldnt stain if you use a base coat, or at least not that bad.
I got Jade Dragon and it's on my nails now. It's a very pretty color and pigmentation is awesome. Two coats, but I always do really, really thin coats. If you do thicker coats, one would probably be enough.
It also dried surprisingly fast, but it doesn't look shiny on its own. That's fine because I always use a top coat anyways, but I'm just saying so people who don't use it know about it.

awesome! i usually wear a base coat because i have ridges in my nails and essie's ridge filling base coat does the job so this makes me happy!

Re: MAC - Nail Trend F/W 2010 Discussion

This gal used a base coat and it still stained. I posted it in the FF thread too.

I'd love to have Imperial Flower. It's so pretty

Re: MAC - Nail Trend F/W 2010 Discussion

Earthly Harmony can def not be duped by ChG Ingrid. Ingrid is much darker and also has less fine glitters. I have them both and love them:


Ingrid by ChG on the left, Earthly Harmony by MAC on the right.

Ming Blue is similar to Orly's Lunar Eclipse. Lunar Eclipse has more purple flash to it IRL:

I ended up withEarthy Harmony and Jade Dragon only. The rest are also beautiful, I just happened to have dupes in my stash already

Re: MAC - Nail Trend F/W 2010 Discussion

I wasn't sure about Earthly Harmony since I'm still in love with In the Buff as my offbeat neutral ('wore it all summer like an addiction - I've got lots of khaki and olive green clothes).

After swatching it, I had to get it....blended with my skin tone perfectly and canceled out any redness around the cuticles and fingers.

Got Jade Dragon too!

Just swatch it first - these weird greyish off neutrals can be fussy and look great with one person's skin and like you stuck your fingers in poop with another's.

I remember craving Paper Bag from Pret A Papier but it just looked awful on me and I passed. I'm sure In the Buff looks horrible on some people too, but I am obsessed with it on me.

Is there someone who could possibly do a swatch of Jade Dragon beside China Glazes Emerald Fitzgerald?

Re: MAC - Nail Trend F/W 2010 Discussion

I am very tempted by Earthly Harmony but MAC nail polishes are so damn expensive here. I feel too cheap to splurge, to be honest.

Re: MAC - Nail Trend F/W 2010 Discussion

I'm not up to date on this thread so maybe it's already been said, but I found out today from the MA at the counter in Tallinn that Tallinn and Helsinki will not be getting this collection. Just wanted to let prople know.

Maybe you could wait for someone to sell one? I feel the same way.. Although they aren't INCREDIBLY expensive here, I still don't want to really shell out the cash

I got Chanel Paradoxal today, so I think my expensive polish quota is filled for a few months

I was thinking of getting EH but I already have $OPI Under My Trench. They look very similar so I may pass.
