Earlier this year when news broke of these three MAC Cosmetics 50th Anniversary Star Trek nail polishes, I almost died. No, I’m not a Trekkie, I’m just a nail polish junkie who likes sparkly things in small amounts. Three bottles? That’s a perfect number of bottles!

I think we’ll start here…
MAC Skin of Evil – Star Trek Collection 2016 (above). MAC describes this as “yellowish green with black chunks” – couldn’t have said it better myself. Yeah, she popped a bit of the lobster hands on me, but I don’t think I care. It’s really a neat-lookin’ kind of thing, isn’t it? That’s two coats and it’s absolutely opaque enough in two. It’s like a lizardy sort of greeny gold confection that borders on fugly. Somehow, because of the Star Trek context, it wins.
MAC Skin of Evil over Enterprise – Star Trek Collection 2016 (above). Yes, you can layer it – that’s one coat and you can see the confetti payoff in one is fairly even.
MAC Enterprise – Star Trek Collection 2016 (above). Oooh! A One Coat Wonder metallic silver frosty thing! MAC calls it a chrome and while it’s close, it isn’t really chrome. I have a bajillion of these already, but if you don’t have one, this is a good choice. Plus, Star Trek.
MAC Holla-Deck – Star Trek Collection 2016 (above). Out of the three MAC Star Trek nail polish shades, this one is my favourite. It’s a supremely warm gold (two coats btw) with more golden flecky bits. The overall look of it is for me mesmerizing. I’m keeping this forever. And ever.
Oh! For those of you who don't have Instagram (hurry up and get on that already!!), please enjoy the teaser you missed.
