Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Daisy #102

November 29, 2013

My latest from Marc Jacobs Beauty is the Nail Lacquer in Daisy #102 ($18 for 13 ml/0.43 fl oz). It’s been on my radar for months and I finally caved and purchased it. Daisy is a pearly ivory pink. It’s a shimmery color that is slightly transparent for a soft pearly finish. The formula requires two coats. The first coat will apply a bit streaky but it evens out with the second. Note you need to let the first one dry completely before applying the second. The result is a pearly color that brightens the skin. Lasting power is extremely impressive with this color. I saw no chips, tip wear or peeling by day 5 and only removed it to play with other shades. I give this polish a huge thumbs up for quality, wear and price.
The bottles have a removeable cap:

Closeups to show the soft pearlescent quality:

Here it is swatched with two coats, in sunlight it glows:

I pulled Chanel Island (discontinued), Chanel Django (discontinued), Rescue Beauty Lounge Pink Shimmer and Deborah Lippmann Sarah Smile to compare. All shades with two coats except for the Deborah Lippmann which has 4 coats to achieve full coverage.

In low light the colors look very similar so I hope these descriptions will help highlight the differences. Chanel Django is more beige/yellow. Rescue Beauty Pink Shimmer is more beige. Deborah Lippmann requires at least 4 coats to get the same coverage as 2 coats of the Marc Jacobs.

You can find Marc Jacobs Daisy online at Sephora and Marc Jacobs (also in stores). I’m really impressed with this color. It’s polished, demure, feminine and subtle enough for everyday wear but contrasts with the skin enough to be visible on the hands. It gives a lovely polished look. For other features on Marc Jacobs Nail Lacquers you can see the posts from August for Petra here, Gatsby here, and Le Charm here.
Have you tried Marc Jacobs beauty yet? What are your favorite nail colors? I’m still eyeing a few more colors! Any rants or raves on any of the other products? I just bought my first lip gel (still testing) but haven’t bought anything else yet.

  • I've been loving the MJ Magic Marc'er liquid eyeliner. It doesn't budge! Love it for its long-lasting power.

  • That is such a beautiful shade!

    I've tried a few things from the line. My favorite polishes are Baby Jane (amazing, quality neutral!) and Petra. I also love the Style Eye-Con eyeshadow palette in Starlet. It's lovely and wears well. The eyeliner (not liquid) glides on well but does not stay put at all. And, I actually returned the foundation. Absolutely no coverage in my opinion. All in all, it's a great line! Your swatches are great!

  • oh god! Love it!

  • Wow, love the beautiful glow to this. It's stunning! xo

    hi sabrina! thankyou very much for this great review! could you please tell me what base coat and top coat you are currently liking and using? your nails are always the prettiest!! xo.

  • I've only tried two products by MJ so far–the lipstick in Have We Met and the concealer pen. I had to return the concealer as it caused my eyes to itch and water like crazy. The tears were literally streaming down my face. Obviously an allergic reaction and a pretty bad one at that. I loved the color and the smooth and even moderate coverage, but wow! What a terrible reaction πŸ™ As for the lipstick, I've had much better luck with that. The color is the proverbial MLBB color, the texture is smooth with plenty of slip, and the finish is satiny. I quite like it and would get more but that was the only color that appealed to me. Next on my list of things to try is the nail polish, so your review came with perfect timing.

    I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you're enjoying your time off.

  • Gorgeous shade. It looks so pretty on you.
