Here is Mac Bad Fairy from the Venomous Villain collection. Bad Fairy along with two other duochrome polishes are in the Maleficent (from sleeping beauty) set. The other two polishes are dupes of a couple of the Orly Cosmic FX polishes so I didn’t bother picking them up, but this one is really pretty and I wanted it as soon as I saw it. It is a pink/orange duochrome, quite subtle in some lights, but quite fiery in others. At some angles you can just see it as a pinkish colour, but when you move your hands you can see the orange flashes. It isn’t as extreme a duochrome to other polishes because the colours (pink/orange) are not as dissimilar as say Orly Space Cadet (green/purple), but I think it looks nice and makes the polish stand out as not just another shiny pink.
I made a trip a Bournemouth (my nearest Mac counter! Very annoying to have to travel, but I love visiting Bournemouth so it gives me a good excuse to go! :)) on the release day and they had plenty of stock, but it was selling very quickly. I picked up this and Dark Deed lipstick for autumn. I know other people have said that it is a bit crappy that there is no Disney packaging on the polishes, but that really didn’t bother me. Even on items that have the Disney characters on it isn’t really anything special. I quite like the Mac polish bottle anyway, with the rubberised lid and it’s quite sturdy.
The application is great, it needs 3 coats for full opacity. I didn’t have any brush problems(loose/splayed out bristles) that have been mentioned by some people. This is also the first polish I tested out my new Essie top coat over. It makes them super shiny! It’s my new favourite topcoat, no more bubbles that I always seem to have and it’s dry in less than 5 mins! Amazing! I will do a review on this later and try and compare finishes to my cheaper top coats. It really seems worthwhile to get a god top coat.
Also, I just realised, compared to previous posts my nails are really short in this one, they look sad. :( I went a bit far when I chopped them, I was watching a film and not really paying attention when filing them. Woops!
I hope everyone is wrapped up warm in this cold horrible weather! The heating has been firmly set to come on several times a day, once about 30 mins before my alarm. I don’t think I could get out of bed on these cold mornings without it! I hate my small house, but I love my combi! <3 Keep warm!
