Mack Gives Back: The Sounds of the 80's Collection

Hey, beauties!

Today, I have the five nail polishes from The Sounds of the 80's Collection from Mackinleigh over at Mack Gives Back.

Now, I'm not an 80's baby, (90's baby, woop! woop!) but I do know each of these songs by heart. I grew up with my dad constantly playing music from this generation, so I was exposed to great music at a young age! ;) Here are the swatches!


First up, Wild Thing. This one makes my heart "sang"! ;) This is a matte rainbow beauty! It's a clear base packed with matte, yellow, blue, purple, and red glitters, matte pink and white micro hexes, small, matte green, sky blue, orange, yellow, lavender, red, and orange hexes, medium matte pink, green, yellow, purple, and pearl hexes, and pearl and purple squares. That was a mouth full! This was applied nicely in one generous coat.



Next, Whip It. Whip it good! ;) This is a clear base loaded with small, matte lavender, pink, green, and red hexes, and medium red, purple, and sky blue hexes. Application was a breeze and glitter distribution was on point in one coat.



Love Shack is hands down my favorite from the collection. It's a clear base loaded with magenta, gold, and pink holo glitters, small, metallic red, metallic red, and matte lavender hexes, large metallic purple squares, and matte hearts. You all know I'm not a huge fan of wine/berry polishes, but it worked perfect as a base color for this look! Application was perfect and even in one generous coat. I did, however, experience curling with the large square hexes, so a thick TC is highly recommended. 



Under Pressure is a clear base packed with matte white, holo, and aqua glitters, small, metallic sky blue hexes, and medium, metallic aqua, metallic periwinkle and matte, muted green hexes. A great combination all around! I can't help but think of the ocean and mermaids when I look at this polish. This applied nicely in one generous coat. I also experienced slight curling from both medium, metallic glitters, so again, a thick TC is a MUST!



Lastly, Super Freak. Another one of my faves from this collection! It's a clear base packed with holo, magenta, and aqua micro hexes, aqua micro squares, small, metallic sky blue and matte pearl hexes, and small purple squares. I love this over a dark plum base and I'm currently wearing this combination! This was perfect in one generous coat.

  39. Great polish! I am always so jealous, because here in Germany we do not have such fantastic Indies as you have. :( Sure, I could get them, but then they would be sooo espensive... :P Maybe some day...

    So, I will just keep looking at them and sigh and be content to watch your beautiful swatches. ;)

  40. OMG....TOTALLY AMAZING!!! I think I'm still drooling lol ;) I LOVE these songs & the polishes, what a great collection idea!! I think my fav IS LOVE SHACK....by far!!! This is the first I've seen of Mack & I'm off to google it now!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love how the polishes follow the theme of 80's songs. I was so glad that Love Shack was SO amazing since that's one of my favorite 80's songs!! I love the colors and how they compliment each other. I am definitely going to have to put that on my "wish list". The problem is my wish list is getting soooo long, I don't know when I'll ever get through it!!!
    Thanks for swatching this collection!

    And no, I don't own any of this line. Yet.

  72. I don't own any of their polishes, but I might just have to. I love these! I am a bit biased though being an 80's baby lol. I especially love Super Freak- it's like the colors were picked just for me. Not to mention it's a great song! Thanks for sharing!

  78. Love Shack, Under Pressure, and Super Freak all look great. I'm less into having toooo much rainbow in one polish. Harmonious colors is better :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. I love all of them. They are so colorfull and fun. I wish I dave it :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. I really love "Super freak", especially over that darker colour - it seems just so perfect for fall. "Whip it" is my second favourite. It would be really awesome if I could get one day something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  81. The red one with the hearts it's sooo adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  82. They look amazing!Love them :-)

    ReplyDelete
  84. It's a shame there's some tacoing in these. I love Under Pressure (and the song!) but couldn't see myself grappling with the curlies in it. Beautiful colours though!

    ReplyDelete
  85. These are gorgeous...and I realllllly appreciate you letting us know about the thick TC because of the curling, always good to know before you begin!!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I have never heard of this polish brand before but now i'm loving it,especially wild thing,it's the perfect indie polish in my collection :D
