Marc Jacobs Beauty Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Sally and Blue Velvet

September 20, 2013

I’m continuing to play with various parts of the Marc Jacobs Beauty line. Here, I’m looking at two of the Marc Jacobs Beauty Hi-Shine Nail Lacquers in Sally and Blue Velvet ($18 each), two stunning deep shimmery jewel toned shades.

As the name suggests, Marc Jacobs Blue Velvet is a sparkling deep blue.

The formula is really nice. Blue Velvet goes on very smoothly, it’s sort of the perfect consistency. This is opaque in one coat, but here I’ve used two. On the nails:

I had a little bit of a tough time removing Marc Jacobs Blue Velvet–I had a little bit of staining that required me to do another round of remover to get all of the color off. Another:

Marc Jacobs Sally is an emerald green that is so deep that is is a near-black.

Like Blue Velvet, this formula is good–very smooth and easy to apply. Sally required two coats to reach opacity. On nails:

Here is a comparison with both Marc Jacobs Blue Velvet and Sally, together with China Glaze Emerald Fitzgerald, OPI Live and Let Die, Chanel Nuit de Russie, Chanel Blue Satin, and Butter London Big Smoke:

I liked both Marc Jacobs Blue Velvet and Smoke. Both are unusual deep tones that are quite pretty for fall and winter. Definitely worth a look. Both are available exclusively at Sephora.

    Sally is amazing! I think I’ll get a blackened teal/emerald before autumn is over 🙂

    Sally is quite nice! I don’t own anything similar so it could be a nice one to get, I love that it’s so dark.

    Hi Amy,

    I love the look of MARC JACOBS Blue Velvet! What a great name too. I haven’t picked up any blues recently; I might swatch this in store 🙂
