This nail polish rocks. It's like MAC Tan Pigment, all molten coppery-champagne shimmering goodness, in polish form!
My mom and I were cruising the aisles of Sephora this weekend and happened upon the new display for Marc Jacobs Beauty. Everything is simplistically designed with clear glass and shiny black plastic "belted" with silver bands. It's quite striking.
I was especially drawn to the nail polishes. I love the bottle design! They're slightly shorter than Essie bottles and about the same height as butter London's. They're smooth and rounded, like river pebbles, and fit square in the palm of your hand. Like polishes from butter London, Dior, and Chanel, the cap pops off to reveal a smaller brush handle.

My mom treated me to a polish (awww! I know! She's awesome!) and I selected Le Charm because it was so pretty and unlike anything else in my polish collection. Le Charm is described as a rosy copper metallic shimmer, and that is spot-on. This is typically the kind of eyeshadow color I like to wear. On the nail, this color looks like thousands of gold and copper pigments layered on top of each other.
I get full coverage in one coat - yes, ONE! - and there are no brush strokes in sight! The brush itself is similar to OPI in that it's thick but not flat and isn't overly long. Application is a cinch!
All of the Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquers are supposed to be superior polish with the shine of 30 coats of lacquer. I think it's harder to judge a glossy shine on a metallic polish, but it definitely gleams and is perfectly smooth with or without a top coat. I found Le Charm dried extremely fast which always adds extra points in my mind!
I am extremely impressed with this polish and will definitely be checking out some of the others in the 24 color collection.

Have you tried anything from the new Marc Jacobs Beauty collection? Are there any Fall collections that you're particularly pumped about?
I'm so ready for Fall!!! Fall here in Atlanta is typically fleeting (usually just a few weeks), but it's such sweet relief after sweating for three months from 90+ degree (35 celsius average) temperatures with 100% humidity. Sometimes the air is so heavy with humidity you can feel a film forming on your skin within a minute or two of being outside. The air is so thick it's practically drinkable. I can't wait for 62 degrees and pumpkin-flavored coffee drinks!
