A little while back, I had the opportunity to play with Jacob’s online store, and to purchase a few things. You can read about it HERE. Well from that adventure, I got to pick up a few things, and this would be one of the things I was able to get.
Jacob Nail Polish in Retro Chic!
You can see the complete list HERE. IF you are interested in the polish, they are on sale for $3 on the online website, and they have an additional 25% off their sale merchandise. Only thing is that shipping is free for orders $100 and up, (otherwise it is $9 for shipping).
So lets move on.
I selected Retro Chic, because I felt that a nice pale orange would be a nice addition to my collection. Most of the other colours weren’t unique to my collection, the downside of buying too much polish >_<
So what can I say about Retro Chic.
First off, the online colours are relatively accurate. I expected mine to be a bit more orange, but it was quite similar to the indoor swatch, so that is a pass.
Second, I found that is dried relatively quickly! Plus it dried with a lovely shine.
Lastly, the formula itself, application and wear, was pretty decent. I found that I didn’t have bald spots, or any pulling during application. In terms of wear, other than the usual issues I have with my index finger, it seemed to wear well for my other nails.
$6 is a little steep in my opinion, as I don’t typically like spending lots of money on a single bottle of polish. One of the main reasons I will probably never be able to buy a Chanel polish for myself…but seeing as it is a lovely colour and decent formula, I would consider it. If I hadn’t hoarded so many polishes already, I might have bought a few more bottles with the $3 sale going on now.
I felt that I needed some shimmer (I don’t usually wear plain creme polish…) so I added American Apparel’s Super Nova Glitter!
I added another layer of Retro Chic, so that it would tone down the glitter, and blend better with the colour. I gotta say that I loved it. Glitter sandwiches are just so fun! Plus I got a few positive comments on it, so that was always a blast as well :)
Have you tried the Jacob Polish line?
