Marc Jacobs 132 Blue Velvet ($18) is the collection’s iridescent deep ocean blue.
While wearing this color, I received compliments on the shine of this alluring and rich blue polish. Blue Velvet is particularly stunning in direct sunlight.
Blue Velvet is very opaque and definitely delivers the high-shine formula it promises. This is what one coat of the polish looks like.
When I did some clean up around my nails after an application of a thin second coat, I noticed some staining on my skin and cuticles. I’m worried it might be an issue once I completely remove the manicure. Heed my warning, base coat is not optional!
To smooth off the entire look, I applied a very thin layer of top coat. Are you in love with this color yet?
