Today I'm wearing MAC - Style Clan, which is an interesting muddy brown-beige creme with bronze glitter in it. I saw it on my trip to Germany, in a store called Douglas, but it was sold out so you can imagine me sighing and drooling over the test bottle, right? LOL! At least I got to see that the colour was indeed something I'd like to try, and so I bought it online when I returned (and my wallet had recovered just a tiny bit).
I only have pictures taken when it was dull, so they're inside shots and with a flash. They do make the glitter appear more visible than it does on the nail (unfortunately), just so you know. ;)
First picture is without topcoat -

And here's a picture after I added Seche Vite topcoat -

I used my regular basecoat, NailTek II, applied two coats of Style Clan and finished with a coat of Seche Vite. Style Clan applied like a dream - despite the brush having a few stray hairs (!) which is not something I expect in an expensive polish (shame on you, MAC!). First coat was thin, but I was afraid it would take three coats, so I applied second coat a little thicker. It was still a dream formula, very easy to control.
I find that Seche smoothens the polish perhaps a bit too much - I like it better with the raw glitter being more visible. It kind of suits the polish better I think.
I must admit that while I adore this colour, I don't think I'll be using it a lot until next Fall - it's just too Autumn-ish in my book. Still a wonderful colour, very unique, and I definitely don't regret buying it :)
