Wine Not (L) and Petra (R)
Marc Jacobs' nail polishes are definitely a NOT. At $18 per bottle, these polishes chip like crazy! I think they lasted all of 3 days max before massive pieces started to peel off. I tried these on with different base and top coats, and they all seem to do the same thing. I tried two incredibly gorgeous shades, Wine Not (Sephora VIB Rouge exclusive color) and Petra. I LOVE the colors. The colors look amazing, but it's the formulation that I have a problem with. I don't like having my nail polish last only 3 days when it takes so long to do them.
This is what Petra looked like at the end of day 2, so it didn't even make it to day 3:
I have never seen a polish chip in large chunks like that. Well, not true... my Barry M polish that I bought in England for all of £3 (about $5), did this. But that was $5. This Marc Jacobs polish is $18! I thought... "Okay, maybe it's just this color." So the following week I tried Wine Not. This is what it looked like on Day 3... it made it one day further than Petra:
Wine Not was slightly better, but it still peeled off in large chunks. I would not recommend this polish to anyone. I think it's fine if you like the colors and you just want to wear it for a special occasion, because it won't last much past your event! However, again, at $18, it's probably not worth the money when you can find some dupes at the drugstore that will last longer.
