Here’s the thing: topcoats are becoming the go-to polish upgrade for the nail obsessed. No longer are we relying on new colors to make our digits standout. It’s all about the finishing touch now.

MAC’s Nail Transformations are a fusion between the Studio Nail Lacquer we’ve grown to love and Marian Newman, a former forensic scientist with an eye for design. Debuting in six new topcoats in Shadow, Blue, Pink, Green, Gold and Texturize, each color offers a unique twist to your already there polish.

My favorite? The Shadow topcoat, which adds a sheer blackening effect, will take your nail color from easygoing to edgy in seconds.

Available now at all MAC locations and online, each color retails at $12.
