Hi, everyone! Time for another Nail of the Day, featuring one of the newest nail polish formulas on the market and one of the most unique, stunning shades I've tried in a while. Marc Jacobs Enamoured High Shine Lacquer in Petra has been on my radar for awhile now, so I was thrilled to pick it up during Sephora's recent VIB sale. To see my whole haul, click here!
Marc Jacobs Enamoured High Shine Lacquer comes in a rounded glass bottle with a shiny plastic black cap and silver accents:
Petra caught my eye because it's a complex shade that's equally glitzy and edgy. It's a mid-tone taupey plum with gold and silver shimmer. In some lights it appears quite brown and in others it looks close to purple. In any light the shimmer is metallic and eye-catching!
I applied two coats to create the opacity seen in these shots. The application was smooth and effortless and the wear has been great so far!
Here's a shot of Petra using flash, which shows off the metallic finish and purple undertones:

And how it looks in natural sunlight:
Overall, I've been thoroughly impressed with this formula and the unique, multi-faceted shade. Petra is one of the few nail colours in my collection that has me gazing dreamily at my tips all day! The shade is unlike any other in my stash and the wear time is impressive. Have no complaints, really!
Is Petra a shade that's up your alley? Have you tried any of the Marc Jacobs Enamoured High Shine Lacquers?
Thanks for reading! xo
