MAC mean & green and Hard Candy Mr wrong
Posted on Wednesday, November 3, 2010 | 5 Comments
I want to thank everyone for their kind comments on my pumpkin. It was very fun to do. If anyone has time next year, why not try to carve out your own pumpkin =) Anyone can do it! I managed to carve out something and I'm not artist so I'm sure you guys can do it too. I followed the picture tutorial provided by Ray Villafane which I linked to in my previous post.
Onto the nail polishes for today....
Today I am featuring 2 nail polishes that I think are somewhat similar. We have MAC's Mean & Green (which is a dupe of Orly Space cadet) and Hard Candy's Mr. Wrong
First is MAC's Mean and Green:
This is 3 coats
- Gorgeous purple/ green/ gold duochrome
- Did not chip for 3 days
- Expensive compared to Orly, based on price and quantity
I would rather purchase Orly's space cadet because it is cheaper and there is a lot more in the bottle but since I live in Canada it is very difficult for me to obtain Orly; thus, I caved and bought MAC
Next we have Hard Candy's Mr Wrong
This is 3 coats
Hard Candy Mr wrong is a metallic dark purple with gold flecks in it.
I guess the only similarity it has with Mean and green is that it is a dark metallic color.
- I like the color
- I love the name
- It comes with a cute ring (seen in the picture)
- Sally Hansen xtreme has a dupe called purple gala and I believe that it is slightly cheaper than Hard Candy
- I did not like the brush, I felt that it was a bit too thin
- it chipped on me on the second day of wear
And finally, a simple nail stamp design
The base color is hard candy Mr. wrong
I stamped using BM plate 04
I placed on half the design china glaze passion and on the other half I placed sally hansen xtreme white on
On a side note, I wanted to introduce a new nail blogger:
She sent me a very kind email asking for a few nail ideas and color combinations, I'm not the greatest at matching and konading (still learning here) but I tried to help her out as much as I could. If you guys have any great ideas or tips it would be great if you could share it with her =)
