Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer: Gatsby #110


Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Gatsby #110 ($18 for 13 ml/0.43 fl oz) is a metallic champagne pink. It's rich pigmented shade with a metal-like finish. I found the color to be unique compared to other metallic pinks. Gatsby has a slight mauvey tone to it. The formula was a bit difficult to work with - I found this one to be thicker than most shades that applied with a streaky finish and visible brush strokes. Once dried and with two coats applied the strokes blended out a bit. The metallic quality is a bit sharp with this one contrasting with my olive skintone. I'm not sure whether I like it or not - I'm on the fence with this color. More photos and swatches below.

Overall - still undecided. I know it's expected that brush strokes are visible with metallics. I'm not sure if the photos captured those streaks. Gatsby is a lovely striking shade that's neutral but with that edge from the shimmer. You can find Marc Jacobs beauty exclusively at Sephora.

  1. Oh I think I prefer La Petite Robe Noire. Gatsby seems a bit too shiny for my taste. :(

  3. This is the perfect amount of shiny for me! Not too glittery and not too overpowering. Love it!

  7. Hi Sabrina,

    I've been looking forward to your swatches of MARC JACOBS Gatsby - it's my favorite amongst your nail lacquer picks! I love how reflective the pink champagne shade looks. It's so fresh against the more modest shimmers!

    (And, I'm still tickled by the lacquer's literary reference, especially in light of 'Daisy' being a theme in the MARC JACOBS line.) :)

  11. Reminds me of Butter London Fairy Lights but not quite as pink. Love the bottle and name. Might have to get this!
