MAC Flaming Red Nail Polish

Looking for the perfect glossy blood red for nails? MAC Maleficent Flaming Red Nail Polish is one of three, limited edition shades inspired by the upcoming Maleficent film starring Angelina Jolie that’s available now at

This brilliant shade of red goes perfectly with the Maleficent Lipstick and Lipglass also available in this collection.

Take a look!

MAC Maleficent Flaming Red Nail Polish

There’s something so classic and timeless about read nail polish. MAC Maleficent Flaming Red Nail Polish is a true old Hollywood glam red. It applies flawlessly with a single application giving nails an opaque, glossy finish. I was very impressed with how pigmented the shade was and also the high shine finish which didn’t even need a top coat to look glossy.

Granted, I’m unsure if it brings the original Maleficent to life in my eyes but you have to remember this is inspired by the live action movie which has Angelina Jolie as a more vampy looking Maleficent sporting bright red lips and a smoky eye. So yeah, red nails seems right on target for the inspiration of the film.

MAC Maleficent Flaming Red Nail Polish Swatches

I’m not terribly impressed with the packaging on this collection though. They went with the traditional MAC black packaging and a set of devious wings embracing the Maleficent and MAC logo on the boxes, compacts, and bottles in the collection. I’m not sure how I’d change it because again it’s very fitting with the film’s own logo but I did expect something a little more luxe and edge-y.

If you love true red polishes I’m positive you’re going to adore the MAC Maleficent Flaming Red Nail Polish.

It’s available now at and will launch shortly on counter.

What are you hauling from the collection?
