MAC Temperature Rising nail lacquer is heating things up this summer

Polish: The two new polishes from the MAC Temperature Rising summer launch, Scorching Haute and Tropical.

Oh. My. Polish Porn. I LOVE these lacquers. MAC’s newest limited edition launch, Temperature Rising, will be available from May 24 to July 4. It’s the next in the line of summer launches that just continue to wow me. From To the Beach to Hey! Sailor and now this.

It’s not your typical summer launch, not a coral in site! Instead, MAC’s take on summer is a steamy, nocturnal affair filled with bronze and purple.

I tried the two polishes alone and mixed in two ways. Check it out…

MAC Scorching Haute swatch

Scorching Haute is a magenta glitter explosion, two sizes of glitter that cover well in just 2 coats.

MAC Tropical swatch

Tropical is chock-full of bronze glitter in a dark brown jelly base. Again, great coverage with just two coats (in fact, a bit more opaque coverage than Scorching Haute.)

Seeing as there is both two lipstick and lipglass in the launch that combine magenta and bronze (Caliente, Sheer Seduction and Underdressed, respectively), I wanted to see how that worked in a lacquer. The answer? Gorgeous!

That’s Scorching Haute and Tropical mixed together and applied (2 coats).

And that’s 2 coats of Scorching Haute with one coat of Tropical on top.
