From the Beauty Closet

Marc Jacobs Polish

4 years ago by

I first met the new Marc Jacobs beauty line backstage at the show last season

His models sported a deep red nail polish on toes and a shiny clear top coat on hands from the new line.

Now you know how much I love my nail polish and Marc’s new lacquer boasts a super high shine finish, like you’ve applied 30 coats of polish (inspired by a lacquered table in his home). So yeah, consider me sold. But I had to try it out for myself…

I popped into the new beauty store on Bleecker the afternoon it opened to see (and try) the entire line for myself. I first tested out Petra, a rose gold metallic. I feel the best way to judge the quality of a nail polish is through the metallic. This one passed the test. One coat and my nails were totally good to go. The high-shine effect comes into play with the non-metallic colors. I grabbed a bottle of Nirvana, an army green, and carefully applied two coats. The shine is no joke. You can skip the topcoat.

I could’ve left with quite the haul but practiced great self control and purchased only the bottle of Nirvana, which is now covering my nails and still seriously shiny.

PS: Krista gives the Precision Pen Eyeliner a stamp of approval as well. She used it to get the perfect cat eye.
