Mac Alluring Aquatics Nail Colour: Shimmerfish

Everybody and their grandmother have already heard about and seen the amazing Alluring Aquatics collection that Mac bought out recently, but when I was ever so fortunate to win this stunning nail polish from The Beauty In Life's blog giveaway, I just had to talk about it! 


It was extremely hard for me to throw away the box of this polish, I mean come on- is that not the prettiest box you ever saw? Thankfully the polish itself is even nicer to look at, with the little fake droplets of water all over the lid against the metallic teal, it's so stunning! The nail colour itself is a very shimmery (go figure) silver with super fine champagne flecks throughout. This looks absolutely amazing when the light hits it, it sparkles and seems like it almost changes colour at every angle.


Shimmerfish is such a complex shade that just doesn't match up to any other nail polish I already own. It applies opaque after two thin coats which is fantastic, and for longevity? After three days of wear I have minimal chipping, which is a rarity for myself. Now hopefully its not too much of a pain to remove…

Let me know if you picked up any of the Alluring Aquatics collection and what you thought of it, I'm dying to get my hands on some of the lipsticks. Thanks again to Hailey and if you haven't already make sure you check out her blog!

  3. Of the Alluring Aquatic nail polishes this is the one I've had my eye on. So tempted but no doubt they're all sold out by now.

    1. It's a shame they sell out so fast, I know there would be so many people still willing to buy them if they could!

  5. I resisted the Aquatics collection and regretted it. This nail colour is amazing. I don;t usually associate nail products with Mac. The eye shadows and lip products in this collection were divine too. The packaging was incredible. Definitely the best one they have done in a long time.
    I was so excited to win the lipstick from the Beauty In Life's blog giveaway.
    Great post and love your blog.

  6. I'm so glad you like it! I find it difficult choosing prizes for giveaways but I think anything from this collection would have been fairly well received if only for the packaging, it's so gorgeous!

    1. You had nothing to worry about with that collection, you're right- the packaging alone is prize worthy! Thanks so much again, I love it :)
