Manicure Monday: MAC Maleficent "Flaming Rose"8:46 PM
Do you have Maleficent fever yet? I, for one, am in shivers admiring Angelina Jolie's stunning and untouchable appearance in the movie. MAC's recent collaboration with Disney's Maleficent includes several Maleficent-inspired beauty products but Flaming Rose polish especially stood out to me.
MAC's Flaming rose is a true neutral, bright red polish that is totally opaque and easy to apply in 2 coats. Here I used a base of butter LONDON Nail 999 base and topcoat.
I actually found it very easy to control this brush and get a clean cuticle line compared to other polish brands. And how cute is the bottle? I love how the black wings stand out against the red! As I mentioned before, this polish ran very neutral if not a tad bit on the cool side for a very clean look on the hands.
If you are interested in picking up Flaming Rose, it's still available now for a limited time at $17.50 via MACcosmetics.com. You can also find the same color (non-LE packaging) at Nordstrom and Selfridges.
