Fictionary: Pigment Of Your Imagination

Fictionary is a column showcasing beauty-related words that don’t exist, but should.

This week, I attended a press event held at MAC Pro where I learned about the latest nail news from the behemoth beauty brand. MAC Cosmetics is introducing 31 colors and 3 finishes in the brand’s first permanent Nail Lacquer Collection beginning July 5 at Nordstrom and MAC stores; August 2 at counters nationwide.

My MAC Pigment CalGel mani

We also got to partake in a little nail trick my gal Keri Blair, senior makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics’s been doing for years–using MAC Pigments mixed with CalGel to create a custom gel manicure. That’s my mani, above, a melange of MAC pigment in Antique Gold mixed with a touch of 3D Gold. It’s a Pigment Of My Imagination, if I do say so myself. My next gel concoction will include my beloved Frozen White pigment.

The Epcot Figment. Here for no other reason than rhyming with “pigment.”

But back to the collection of nail shades–there are hues ranging from screaming brights to neutral delights, all in the creamy consistency and color payoff you expect from MAC. Here, the full list.
