Welp, I tried to get this post up yesterday, and it just didn’t happen. A day late isn’t too bad, right? If you follow me on Instagram, you know how obsessed I am with Marc Jacobs nail polish. If you missed my initial review, check it out here. It’s always hard to accurately assess how awesome something is on the first try, but now that I’ve tried a second color from the collection, I’m really sold! My new color, Ultraviolet, did not let me down in the smooth application and high shine departments.
When I did my initial review, I hadn’t really had a chance to wear test the polish, but I had read a lot of reviews claiming that it lasted at least a week without chipping. I’ve now polished my nails with the MJ lacquers three times and can attest to that claim. I got a full 6 – 7 days out of my manicure on all three occasions. On about the 7th or 8th day, I started to notice some tip wear. Also, to be fair, I really struggle with my nails peeling at the tips so that sometime causes what appears to be chipping, but is really just the top layer of my nail starting to chip. It’s a pain in the butt, and has been going ever since I tried a gel manicure OVER A YEAR AGO. Needless to say I will never do gels again, but I am trying to keep my nails painted because that seems to help with the peeling. Anyway, I digress. The point is, yes! Marc Jacobs nail polish is $18, but it goes on smooth, dries fast and shiny, and lasts at least a week. Totally worth the splurge, in my opinion.
If you like this color, get it at Sephora!
