MAC Quite Cute - Ice Cream Cake & Mischievous Mint

Hey everyone! Today I have swatches of two of the colours from the recent MAC Quite Cute collection. Unfortunately I don't have Little Girl Type as MAC Pro was already sold out of that one when I placed my order.

Apologies for the nubbins! My nails were looking amazing after my mani with Mandi from Illamasqua last week and then unfortunately, the next day I had a MEGA break on my ring finger. I can't handle having different length nails, so I filed them all down! 

Ice Cream Cake - Creamy blue pink. I love this colour! It was a little streaky so I did three coats to even it out, but who cares - it's freakin hot! Surprisingly enough, even though it is a pink cream (which are a dime a dozen in the nail polish world!!) I don't have a lot of dupes in my collection. The only one I could find that comes close is Zoya Sweet, however Sweet a little lighter and more dusty. Ice Cream Cake is therefore a must have!



Mischievous Mint - Creamy pale blue mint. This colour gave me the most wicked case of lobster hands I have had in a while! It doesn't really suit my skin tone, but I still find myself attracted to the colour! Mischievous Mint isn't the most original colour, but the formula on this was pretty good compared to other mint creams I have tried. I only needed to use two coats for these pics! I have one complaint about this polish - the brush was craptastic! The bristles were sticking out everywhere! It looked like someone had gone at it with a pair of scissors! However, the great formula made up for the brush woes!



That's all for today. Still recovering from a killer two day migraine so I'm off to get some sleep in the hope I feel up to going to work tomorrow.

  2. OMG. Both these colours are so bubblegum-amazing!! Shame about the bristles on the brush - MAC's nail polish brushes aren't the best are they!?!?

  3. hi carina:  hope the migraine disappears completely soon (i get them too in clusters from time to time--yuck!).  really love the  mischievous mint!  i am so tempted to try a pastel blue or green, but i'm just afraid of what it would look like with my skintone!  i know that in fabrics very rarely can i wear pastels because they tend to make me look grayish...sigh!  blessings
