Review: Love & Friendship

Before it even hit stores, this MAC nail polish from the A Rose Romance collection was at the top of my to-buy list. When I got it I was a little disappointed as it wasn't as "spring" as I would have liked it to be. I described it as a dirty lavendar... kind of dull. When I checked back with the MAC description, that was exactly how it was described as -- "dirty lavendar".
I still feel this is more of a transition shade into fall -- not spring.
What I DO like about this polish is the formula. I expected it to be super super streaky and requiring 3 coats, much like the two cream polishes (peppermint patti and seasonal peach) from the Sugarsweet collection. To my surprise, this bottle was not streaky at all. In fact, one coat was good enough albeit not opaque enough. To get the full colour payoff that matches what you see in the bottle, two coats was sufficient. Despite it being a cream finish/formula, I was extremely pleased with its application.
