>Today I’m going to show you MAC Bad Fairy.
MAC Bad Fairy is a red/magenta/copper duochrome polish with shimmery, flake-like particles; think about Orly Cosmic and Zoya Sparkle polishes, the finish is very similar to them.
Application was 4 coats. I could probably get away with 3, but I did 4 to cover the mistakes, because this polish is very unforgiving.
I respect MAC as a brand, but I totally hate their polishes. The price is too high for this quality. The brushes are bad, the consistency is, well, inconsistent; I threw away On The Prowl after trying to apply it for a third time. Light Affair had a better formula, but still very, very chalky and thick; I hated to apply it. And now Bad Fairy is so runny, it pools on the sides of the nail right away. The first coat went on so sheer, but I was ready for that. What I wasn’t expecting was that the polish simply dragged itself. The third stroke on the first coat wiped everything away. And it’s already sheer! Plus, if the coat before is not dry to touch, you can’t apply a second coat. My right thumb never dried throughly, and I had to reapply for like 3 times. Plus, if you touch the polish by accident, you will most likely wipe every coat off from that area that lies underneath. Like I said, the polish is unforgiving and doesn’t let me fix any mistake.
I’m going to stop ranting and leave you with the pictures. At least the color is nice.

I’m sure many people couldn’t get their hands on this polish, but the formula is really troublesome and if you’re not that patient with your application, maybe you’re better off without it. I suggest you to get OPI Show Must Go On!, as it’s a nice alternative, even if not a dupe. And I’m sure it has better formula.

Bugün MAC Bad Fairy’i göstereceğim.
MAC Bad Fairy kırmızı/pembe/bakır arasında renk değiştiren yanardöner bir oje. Yapısı Orly Cosmic koleksiyonuna ve Zoya Sparkle koleksiyonuna benziyor, yani içinde küçük, cam kırığı gibi ışıltılar var.
Şu an 4 kat sürülmüş halini görüyorsunuz. Aslında 3 katta opak oluyor ama sürümü o kadar yorucu ve zor ki, bazı hataları düzeltmek için 4 kat sürmek zorunda kaldım.
MAC’e marka olarak saygım olsa da; fiyatları o kadar uçuk ki, özellikle ojelerinin. 25 Lira verilen bir ojenin formülü, fırçası bu kadar kötü olmamalı. Daha önce Hello Kitty koleksiyonundan On The Prowl isimli ojesini almıştım, o kadar berbat bir ojeydi ki resmen üçüncü denemeden sonra acımadan çöpe attım. İnceltici bile döktüğüm halde üstelik, o kadar kötüydü yani. Sonra Light Affair, sözde düzeltilmiş formülüyle beni hayal kırıklığına uğrattı. Kireç gibiydi ve sürümü beni delirtti. Şimdi de Bad Fairy, o kadar ince ve akışkan ki tırnağın yan taraflarında toplanıyor, hem de daha ilk katta. Üstelik aşırı derecede şeffaf olduğu halde bunu yapıyor. Ayrıca kendi fırçası resmen ojeyi sürüklüyor, böylece boşluklar oluşuyor. Bir önceki kat tamamen kurumadan ikinci katı sürerseniz yandınız, alttaki katı acımadan bozuyor. Sağ elimin baş parmağını bu yüzden 3 kez sürmek zorunda kaldım. Zaten kazayla falan değerseniz ojeye, kırışmak yerine o bölgedeki tüm oje silinip gidiyor. Hata düzeltmeye kesinlikle izin vermeyen bir oje özetle.
Neyse burada şikayeti keseyim, siz de resimlere bakın.
Bu ojeyi bulamadıysanız çok büyük birşey kaçırmış sayılmazsınız. OPI Burlesque koleksiyonundan Show Must Go On!, renk olarak iyi bir alternatif, formülü de büyük ihtimalle bundan çok daha iyi. Bildiğim kadarıyla Gittigidiyor’dan Rio55 Burlesque koleksiyonundan istediğiniz ojeleri sipariş ediyor, temasa geçin derim.

>Hey guys =) This manicure started as an experiment on only one nail, but was quickly converted to a whole manicure =) It wasn’t as difficult as I expected, but I’m not very good at freehanding, so it didn’t turn out perfectly, either.


Since I’ve seen the promo pictures, I have been in love with the model’s nails. I finally decided to do my own version, but I used different colors. Now I wish I stayed true to original colors, though. Maybe I’ll make another version of this =)






I used an old, stark, gloopy white polish as a base, then drew the outline of the petals in regular black creme with a thin brush, filled in the petals and finally accented them using black again. From thumb to pinky I used China Glaze Peachy Keen, Lemon Fizz, Bahamian Escape mixed with yellow (an old franken), IV and Agent Lavender.
The last two pictures are kinda creepy because it didn’t dawn on me while I was painting that the design on the thumb should be on the other side to be visible… =)

>Hi guys =) The Slytherin manicure is still holding well, without any tipwear or chipping. Although I noticed that jellies tend to go transparent on the tips, as if they shrink, they don’t look bad and I can live with it. I didn’t want to let a gorgeous dark green jelly go so easily, thus I have a manicure from the vault to show you today.
It’s MAC’s Light Affair. I couldn’t believe how quickly it sold out here, I ordered the last bottle from another MAC store in Istanbul via phone, and they sent it to the nearest MAC counter for me. Light Affair is a gorgeous light mushroom/taupe color, with a hint of purplish pink. It’s a beautiful color, I haven’t seen anything like it. The application was quite streaky, though it was nice for MAC standards. I experienced bubbling and uneven application, but I finally got the hang of it.


Excuse the weird lighting, it was nighttime and the camera didn’t want to photograph well, so this is the only decent picture I’ve got.
