Marc Jacobs Gatsby

Happy Mani Monday! This weekend I stopped in Sephora and decided to treat myself to a Marc Jacobs polish since I liked Petra so much. I saw a swatch of MJ Gatsby and knew I had to have it, more for the name than the color (though I do love the color as well). The Great Gatsby is my all time favorite book and I have a weird obsession with the 1920s.

I absolutely adore the shape of these bottles! Please ignore the reflection of my phone in the cap haha whoops.

Gatsby is a metallic champagne pink. As much as I love the color of this polish, the formula was tough to work with. Not sure if it was the brush or what. It wasn't really streaky as you sometimes find with metallics, but the first coat was patchy and I had to work quickly with the second coat because of how fast it dries. Once I applied the two coats and top coat any brush strokes blended out nicely. So although it's a bit tricky to work with, the finished result is pretty.

I may need to get my hands on more Marc Jacobs polishes. The colors and the bottle shape are so lovely! My wallet is crying for me. I hope you all have a great start to the week. Be on the lookout for my March favorites post!
