MAC Jade Dragon

I caved and picked up a few of the MAC polishes from Nail Trend F/W 2010 collection. I put Jade Dragon on first and it was love. MAC seems to have improved the formula greatly but wow are the bottles tiny! I forgot that they are smaller than the average bottle of polish. You would think the price would reflect that. Hmph!

Jade Dragon is an amazing deep green with shimmer/sparkles. It's dark but never looks black and reminds me of dark spruce trees. It looks like a green you would see in a dark forest. The shimmer is lighter and a blueish/green. Two coats and I could have gotten away with one. I did a few touch ups before taking these photos because I had this on for two days. Yum!

Lots of photos and remember to click for a larger image.

On to the hand.

Now beauty can come with a price at times. The price of this is staining. The staining!! Here are my naked nails (eek!) after removing Jade Dragon. I wore it with two coats of basecoat and before removing slathered my hands in oil. When I removed the polish I scrubbed and scrubbed with acetone. I applied tons of cuticle oil and lotion and scrubbed with sugar and Dawn dish detergent. It was like my fingers had become moldy. Ahh well.

Oh my gosh! Nail staining is the WORST. I know exactly how you feel!

But I must say, that is a gorgeous color!

A bit more oil and another sugar scrub with Dawn and they are gone. I saw your post about staining - ouch!
