Mani Friday: Marc Jacobs Is Here!

Today’s Mani Friday is dedicated to – who else? Mr. Marc himself. After months of anticipation, Marc Jacobs Beauty has arrived! And as much as I can’t wait to try everything, clearly I HAD to get my hands on the polishes.


They do not disappoint. Look at that shine, that sparkle! They weren’t kidding when they named it High-Shine Lacquer. (By the way, I did this mani 3 days ago and it’s STILL that shiny, and hasn’t chipped. #Justsaying).


What mani are you rockin’ this weekend? Show & Tell!

Ahh Lola looks like the Perfect Red! And Petra is sooo pretty!! I just don't know if i can justify an $18 polish..... Hmmm...

That manicure is adorable!

@Spyski - Thank you! I'm growing my nails out again too. I moved a couple of weeks ago and lost a few, so I had to cut them all off. :/


@arielaaaaaaaaa - The red is STUNNING. I don't really wear red nail polish but I'm so in love with it. Petra is a gorgeous sparkly bronze and Stone Jungle is the perfect silver foil. And I feel you, $18 isn't nothing, but you get a beautiful polish with a bottle designed by Marc Jacobs himself! I feel like it's classing up my polish collection, lol. 

Thanks @melde!

Petra is calling out to me! Between Deborah Lippman and Marc Jacobs nail polishes I'm going to go crazy! I don't need more polish to begin with!

@wendyomgwar - You ALWAYS need more polish. Smiley Happy

Wanna talk about bright?  My mom picked out the color, and surprisingly I like it as a change from my normal pinks.  It certainly is bright!

@michmo - oh so pretty! That's a great summer color!


@arielaaaaaa - Lola for the holidays is a great call. 

Oh they are GORGEOUS! I already know I'm getting the clear one (my default), possibly the red one and I really want one of the neutrals. Aaaahhhh, can't wait to go to a store and try them (darn you, thunderstorm!)

they look totes fab Smiley Happy

@ Candace, Petra is a gorgeous shade! It would make an excellent accent or manicure tip color if paired with a deep plum!


Here's my nails for today (did them yesterday):


The white is gel polish, but I topped it off with OPI's Thrill of Brazil (red) and a basic black from a striping polish set. My b/f gave me the idea to do a basic, yet bold linear look with the colors!

That's super cute, lylysa! Looks very mod Smiley Happy.

Thanks, Candace! My b/f is artistically inclined and used to do work painting cars so he likes seeing bold colors and more classic designs! Smiley Happy I remember one look he suggested of red nails with a white stripe down the center and thinner yellow one running in the middle of that and I ended up with so many compliments from folks I randomly came across!


What base/top coat did you use, Candace, and how many coats of each color did it take to do that look?

I love that color combination Candace!  Yikes, sadly I already did an order for all the MJ products I tried during training including MORE polishes. Lets ignore the fact I bought 3 lippman polishes on Monday Smiley Sad  My delivery was made so I'll update later once I try my new pink confetti polish! Smiley Happy

All of the manis are stunning!  That Marc Jacobs red definitely caught my eye!


For the weekend, I'm going with accents on my ring and thumb nail.  I used Finger Paints in Tangerine Tint and It's So Easy Stripe Rite polish in a sky blue shade.

2 things I missed over the weekend - 


1. @lylysa - I used the Deb Lippmann rehydrating base coat (fave! But I don't think we sell it yet Smiley Sad) and the Jin Soon top coat (also a fave!)  Two coats for the red color (it goes on quite opaque), and the other colors only 1 coat. 


@kimmi115 - OOOH YOUR NAILS! That color combo is to die.
