Hey guys! Today is Cinderella movie day yaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not actually sure when I'll get to see it because we are in the middle of moving and things are a little crazy! Last week (or was it 2 weeks ago?) I stumbled across the MAC Cinderella collection. Some one I follow posted a picture of what she bought (from the first online launch I'm guessing) and I was like WHAAATTTTT! Cinderella has always my favorite princess, long time readers of my blog might remember when I made a running costume for the Disney Princess Half Marathon ;) My wedding was also (subtly and not so subtly) Cinderella themed!
In recent times my interests have changed a little (more so each day I parent 3
I ordered as much as I possible could that I actually thought I would use. I've never owned or used anything from MAC and there is a few parts to this collection that are more on a professional level. And itssssss essssspensive. I'm still not used to high-end makeup prices! This is a one time thing for me I think! I wanted to do a post with a mani inspired by the packaging and give a few more recommendations for Cinderella themed polishes from my stash! That's the longest intro ever!
( I do have more pictures of just the makeup that if I get time I may write a post on them, just for informational purposes. I probably won't swatch them. Or maybe I will. That's not really my game!)
Let's get on with it! Here's the look I made, inspired by the packaging and a few fellow nail artists! Click read more after the pic!
Here are the polishes I pulled that most match the colors on the packaging OR are just Cinderellaish to me ;)
from the top Zoya:
Zoya Rayne, Zoya Vega, Essie Bikini So Teeny, OPI Love Angel Music Baby, Zoya Rebel, Love Angeline Polish Let's Snuggle, OPI 50 Years of Style, Nicole by OPI Stand by Your Manny, OPI Glitzerland, Sinful Colors Cinderella, Pipe Dream Polish Champagne Kisses
This post does not have swatches of all these, they are just some ideas!
The one that matches the best is Bikini So Teeny.
Here's a swatch of Cinderella, which is in here only for the name. My bottle is at least 2 years old, and I've been hearing it might have been reformulated so maybe I'll pick up a new one! This shows FOUR coats and its still streaky. I rarely wear it because of that. For Shame!
Here is Zoya Rayne, which is available now as part of the Spring Collection! You can see my review here!
Honolulu Orchid by Island Girl gets an honorable mention for 2 reasons. 1) Its the only light blue-ish polish I have with a pinkish purpleish duochrome shimmer to it the most similar to the MAC packaging. 2)There's more than one version of this polish! I purchased another one as a gift and it was a straight up crème! What the heck, Island Girl???
