Mean & Green is a duochrome polish that shifts from a drab olive green to a cold metallic purple, with a few flecks of pink here and there to give it some spice. The formula is as smooth as the other two polishes with no brush marks or bald spots, although this polish needed three coats to get full coverage. Yet again the brush was a splayed out mess as I unscrewed it from the bottle for the very first time – I guess I’m doomed to never find a MAC nail lacquer that has a neat, tidy application brush.
I’m not giving a whole lotta love to Mean & Green. I normally like yuckyum nail polishes (so ugly they’re pretty), but this one is just too bruised, too murky and doesn’t have that indescribable something that makes me fall in love with other fugly polishes. Like Formidable!, I think I might hang onto this for a while to see if it grows on me before swapping it away or giving it to a friend.
