Marc Jacobs Beauty: Nail Polish in Petra and Blue Velvet

September 10th 2013 / 1 minute to read

When I first heard that Marc Jacobs was coming out with a beauty line, I was SO EXCITED (yes, Jesse Spano excited)!

Love love love love love.




The packaging, although beautiful is prone to smudging. Do I care? NO!


The large cap comes off to show a teeny more usable standard cap. The brush itself (from top cap to tip of brush) is about half the length of a standard bottle of polish brush. I adored this. Made it SOOO much easier to really control the application of the polish. Considering I did these swatches at 4am? To not have it be a hot mess? Hardcore right there.




The formula is wonderful. The swatches? ONE COAT!!!! I KNOW!!! EXCITING!!!!

I did use a top coat out of curiosity to see how much blingy shine I could get.

I am thrilled so far and I am highly considering making a wishlist for my husband, since my birthday is coming up soon!

Price: $18.00
Where to Buy: Sephora

The blue one is gorgrous! I’m a sucker for blue but this one is super pretty.

It’s SO pretty when the sun hits it too. Makes it mermaid-y (not a word but… you get it!).

LOVE! (need I say more?)

I need more lol! They are great!

Seriously, I can’t get over the coverage. One coat? Unheard of! I really REALLY like the shorter brush length. I just feel like I have more control. I need more. NEED MOREEE!
