Not going to waste my hard earned money on nailpolish that won't apply nicely when I can get OPI/Essie/Zoya for half the price of MAC and much better formula (currently eyeing Essie's "Where's My Chauffeur" for my minty green/aqua-ish craving, based on some swatches and reviews). Oh well, I'll most probably exchange it for Smutty Green MES as I've had that on my wishlist since it came out. Lesson learned.
I tried to pre-order Mischievous n/p in Quite Cute, but it was gone even before it was officially released (and before i knew how unreliable MAC n/p can be - i have a couple that are great and a couple that s**k)
So in an attempt to dupe Mischievous i picked up:
-- Revlon Top Speed Fast Dry - 320 Jaded
-- Revlon Nail Polish - 85 Minted
-- essie - turquoise & caicos
-- Nicole by OPI My Lifesaver ( LE - Justin Bieber coll) Please excuse me, i didn't realize it was in the Leave it to Bieber collex until i was checking up details of the polish on-line. There is something so artificial and awkward about him I get uncomfortable watching him.
No claims that these are the only dupes, just the ones i picked up. The essie polish is VERY nice.
