After a lot of limited edition polishes, (some a love, some a hate) MAC has decided to create a 31 color range of Nail Lacquers, available in 3 finishes. You'll recognize a lot of the names, but some are new. Hopefully if you missed out on a coveted LE MAC nail polish in the past, you can pick it up now!

I have several to review, but I chose this first lacquer in Quiet Time because I thought it to be a dupe for a recently released designer polish. You'll have to keep reading to find out what ;)

Quiet Time is described as a beige nude cream. It almost comes off as a light greyed taupe as well. It applied sheerly, and actually looks the most refined at just one coat. The swatch photos taken are of three coats.

Remind you of anything? Maybe Chanel Frenzy?

(pinkie and middle finger are Chanel Frenzy, ring and pointer fingers are MAC Quiet Time.)


The formula on the Chanel is less sheer, and a bit easier to work with, but the shade is nearly dead on. With a $10 price difference, I can imagine it would work itself out ;)

MAC Nail Lacquers retail for $16.00 each and are available at your local MAC Counter (try Nordstrom) or store, as well as online at
