Mac Surf Baby Hangin' Loose & Ocean Dip Nail Lacquer Swatches and Polish Review

Mac Surf Baby includes all kinds of products; some are color products for face, some are bronzing products for face and body and then there's nail laquers. The nail lacquers are in the familiar 10 ml Mac bottle with the black top. The two lacquers in this collection have an emblem on the front of the bottles to identify them as part of this limited edition assortment. A pretty little surfboardesque oval outlined with turquoise is met with a red hibiscus flower at the corner pointing to the word MAC. This emblem alone makes me wistful for my days in Hawaii. It's been too long, but I can feel a little closer just by gazing at this logo.



Both lacquers are a cream formulation and Hangin' Loose is opaque in two coats. I have a couple of pictures that show the relative color in a couple of different lightings...and dare I say this could be Mac's equivalent to Deborah Lippmann's Naked? The Mac Lacquers retail for $15 in the US.



I apologize for my cuticles in the above picture. I spent two weeks in a chlorinated pool recently and my skin hasn't quite recovered yet. I am open to really great moisturizer recommendations if anyone has some suggestions.



This is a beautiful fleshy nude beige with just a faint touch of pink to it. It is definitely a cream, and while I can see a tough of faint shimmer in the bottle, there is none on the nail. It's a great nail cleansing color for when you need a break from all the flashy and wild nail colors that you might otherwise display.

Here's a sneak peak of the other nail lacquer, Ocean Dip.
