Marc Jacobs 114 Snap! Nail Polish Swatch

Marc Jacobs 114 Snap! ($18) is the collection’s mandarin orange.

The beautiful orange hue provided a much needed pop of color during this cold season. While wearing Snap! I noticed my skin glowed! I’m looking forward to sport this polish in the summer.

The creamy formula allowed for easy application with an opaque finish after the initial coat.

Snap! has a pretty fast dry time and leaves a high-gloss finish. The orange hue is very easy on the eyes even after a second coat.

I was so impressed by the extra smooth finish I got after two coats, I didn’t even apply a top coat. I mean just look at these bright beauties!

Marc Jacobs Evelyn Nail Polish Swatch

Marc Jacobs 144 Evelyn ($18) is the collection’s opaque smoky gray and it is a beautiful combination of black and white.

Every nail polish collection needs a perfect gray hue for a good tone. Evelyn is just that polish for me.

After the initial coat there were barely any streaks. The creamy formula makes for easy application.

The nail polish has a pretty quick dry time. By the second coat, I reached a desired opacity.

To smooth off the entire look, I added a very thin layer of top coat. The glossy finish is undeniable.

Blue Velvet by Marc Jacobs Nail Polish Swatch

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?

Oui! by Marc Jacobs Nail Polish Swatch

Marc Jocobs 118 Oui! ($18) is the collection’s magenta violet and it is unlike anything I’ve ever seen.

The nail polish has a smooth finish that resembles a metallic version of a radiant orchid- Pantone’s selected color of the year for 2014.

I had very little application issues and there were barely any brush streaks visible after the initial base coat.

Here’s what a second coat of Oui! looks like. Are you as in love with the polish as I am? She’s a beauty!

After the second coat, there were a few spots that were still not at my desired opacity level so I applied a thin third coat on the spots that needed it.

The polish absolutely delivers the high-shine finish it promises and also has a pretty fast dry time. I added a very thin top coat to smooth off the entire look.

Ultraviolet by Marc Jacobs Nail Polish Swatch

Marc Jacobs 122 Ultraviolet ($18)  nail lacquer is the collection’s violet purple. The color is a super posh purple that is bright when it needs to be and is subtle in indoor lighting.  I truly feel royal in this manicure.

This is the third Marc Jacobs polish I try. After familiarizing myself with the creamy formula, I can’t emphasize enough that steady application, as well as waiting for each coat to completely dry are essential. Especially if you want to get the sleek and high shine finish the bottle promises. The great news is, the polish has a pretty quick dry time.

marc-jacobs-ultraviolet-nail-polish

I applied a very thin layer for the initial coat. At first swipe the polish gives off more of the red undertone and looks like a shade of magenta.

After a second coat, the blue hue is prevalent which reflects the color you see on the bottle.

I’ve tried two other Marc Jacobs nail polishes and this was the first color that needed three coats to get the desired opacity. Keep scrolling down to see the other two Marc Jacobs nail polish swatches.

Here is what a third coat of Ultraviolet looks like.

The polish has an ultra shine formula that wouldn’t require a top coat. To smooth off the entire design though, I added a thin layer of it.

Nirvana by Marc Jacobs Nail Polish Swatch

Marc Jacobs 128 Nirvana ($18) is described as a deep army green. While swatching this polish I found the green hue is more prevalent in the bottle than on the nails. But if you’re into a grunge-goth green with an underlying ebony shade, this is your match.

marc-jacobs-nirvana-review

Here is one coat of the polish. The formula is very creamy which leaves a bit of a streak. Steady application is a must!

The polish has a pretty fast dry time. I recommend waiting for the lacquer to completely dry and harden before applying a second coat. You can already see the high gloss finish the polish guarantees. This is two coats of Nirvana.

Nirvana was a hard color to capture on camera. The green shade shows up in natural light, while the dark undertones of the polish are present in almost all inside light. The polish leaves the nails looking totally plasticized with a high shine. While a top coat isn’t necessary, I used a thin layer to smooth out the entire look.
