Swatch: Shocking by Marc Jacobs

Today I've got some swatches of one of my new favorite polishes: the color is called Shocking and it's from the new Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer line.


The short version of this review is: I LOVE this polish!

However, because one sentence makes for a pretty boring blog post, here's the longer version: As soon as I heard that Sephora would be carrying a new Marc Jacobs cosmetics line, I knew I had to try the nail polish right away. And I'm so glad I did! Although this polish is pricey, it's worth every penny, in my opinion. The formula is perfect: these swatches show two normal coats, and it was super easy to apply and control. The drying time is also excellent.

Also, as an added bonus, this polish dried very smooth and shiny and could easily be worn without a top coat, if that's your thing (shown here with a top coat, however).

The only thing I didn't love about this polish was the bottle. It definitely looks quite chic and cool, but its practicality (or lack thereof) leaves something to be desired: both the glass of the bottle and the lid are very smooth and slippery, making it difficult to handle (and photograph!) the polish itself. But this is a minor complaint, and it definitely won't stop me from picking up more of these amazing polishes when I'm able to splurge a bit.
