it's not every day that both the hip girl working at olive bette's and my mom compliment my manicure. but that is the universal appeal of MAC's love and friendship nail lacquer shade.
created as part of spring's rose romance collection, the MAC site says the shade is "creamy dirty mid-tone lavender (cream)". i would call it french pastel lavender - it's a pastel, but not too baby-toned (i wouldn't paint my kid's room this color). the MAC site also says its "sold out", so check your local MAC counter for this coy shade. $11.
ps - i am not in a picture taking mood. click here to see swatches - this girl has lovely hands and it's a very accurate representation of the color.
