MAC Mean & Green

This is the first of the 3 Venomous Villains polishes I tried out.

Mean & Green is teal with pink pigment and even in the same light can look completely different.

The best I can explain this is through pictures (please excuse my stubby nails - this is a result of a bunch of breaks over the weekend)

I personally like it when it is looking pinkish. This was three coats.
I'm not really a fan of of the silly little brushes that accompany these polishes.
When you take off this polish the cotton pad goes blue, showing the base of the teal that the polish has, which isn't so visible on the nail.

Orly Space Cadet from the 2010 Cosmic FX collection is said to be a dupe for this polish. Cosmic FX has not yet made it to NZ, so I an unable to do a comparison (We have just got the Sweet collection in NZ). I know that over seas Orly is much cheaper than MAC, but in NZ MAC is $26 and Orly is $23 so there isn't much difference at all.

One of the big problems with these MAC polishes is that they are only 10mls as opposed to the standard 15mls of other brands. This is a shame and makes me not want to waste these Limited Edition polishes.

Lots of Love


  1. I love the many changes this polish goes through! Very pretty.

  2. Wow, that's a really lovely color!

  3. I think this colour grows on you after a while :)
