Color: Delicate (M∙A∙C)Retail Price: $16.00 (USD)
This shade is from the M∙A∙C Casual Color collection. It is described as a soft pink nude with a creme finish, but I think M∙A∙C also needs to mention it’s super sheer! In fact, I wouldn’t even classify this as a creme because I really can’t see anyone being patient, bored, or crazy enough to build this up into a solid color.
As implied, the formula for Delicate is, well, delicate. I got a strange blotchy effect in the finished manicure that resulted in some areas being more opaque than others. One coat of this is practically invisible; in the photo above, I am wearing three coats of Delicate, and even then, it’s still pretty sheer (that line on the nail of my ring finger does a nice job of showing how sheer this shade is). Also, the finish on this shade isn’t as glossy as the others in this collection, so I’d absolutely recommend finishing your manicure with a glossy top coat.
Delicate isn’t a shade for everyone, but if you’re looking for something work-safe and subtle, or a nail polish to help hide discolored nails, this might be perfect to help you achieve a classic, clean manicure. Looking for a dupe? Try You Callin’ Me a Lyre? from the OPI Soft Shades collection.
