MARC JACOBS BEAUTY Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer, 140 Petra, review, swatch

It’s pretty much established on le blog that I’m no nail connoisseur. My cuticles are deplorable, I struggle with nail art, even a dotticure seems like a gargantuan task. Don’t ask me about water marble, I haven’t even tried appliqués yet, por favor. With those trivialities out of the way, I still crave for fabulous-looking nails. The simpler the application, the better. The longer it wears, even better. If you know me well enough, I look past the tag price. I pay for quality, that’s the whole essence of a designer vis-a-vis luxury brand right?

So what’s up with the superfluous preface? Ok here’s the deal breaker. While I’m head-over- heels in love with Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon, the evidence of which is scattered all over the blog, I seriously detest this particular shade 140 Petra from the eponymous nail lacquer collection. Yes, it’s a gorgeous metallic bronze/taupe; yes, it’s opaque in one coat; yes, it’s creamy; yes it’s non-streaky. But girly, this is chip festival in less than 24 hours! No exaggeration. I know I’m hardcore when it comes to my nails (no thanks to countless handwashing and sanitizing) but I am appalled that at $18, I can get better results with a cheapo $3 brand. To you ladies who change your nail polish every single day, my concern is probably peanuts but I’m the type who does weekly (the most is bi-weekly) because I don’t have the time to tinker with my nails, let alone worry about ugly chipped nails after a long day at work. 

I’m a staunch believer of “first impression lasts”. 99.9% of my repurchases were all anchored to first impressions. It’s the same when I meet people for the first time. If personality sucks big time, I won’t even bother to reconsider. I’m going to end my rant now. I nailed my point. You understand my stance. Buy at your own risk. I’m tired and #hangry
