Marc Jacobs ~ Desire



Marc Jacobs ~ Desire
Clear red shimmer

Yesterday I showed you Blue Velvet from Marc Jacobs, and today I’m going to show you the other one I bought. It’s red and shimmery and very beautiful, wait and see.

The formula is really good and the polish need two easy coats to reach full opacity. The drying time is good. Desire has a thinner consistency than Blue Velvet so this is not a true one coater like its sister.

But here it is: Two coats and no topcoat in the sun:


I added glitter because I love glitter. I used #656 from Nilens Jord. It’s a lovely mix of orange hexes and glitters in a clear base. I dipped the brush once in the bottle for each nail. The drying time is average.

Here’s how beautiful it is over Desire.


I added holo flecks as well! I used my faithful topper from El Corazón. It’s number 421h/25.

Here’s the final result in the sun:


And this is what it looks like in the shade.


The pretties:


Desire is also a winner in my book. I actually wanted to buy 1 or 2 Marc Jacobs polishes more, but the rest they had were all crèmes and I’m not so hooked on that, as you may know by now :)


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Very good
Finish: Shimmer
Overall impression: Wow, I love the colour and the shimmer – and the quality
Buy again: Yes

  1. Oh wow, what a gorgeous red - to be honest I think it is perfect on it's own, but I'm not a glitter girl LOL

  6. It looks great and I would consider buying a a more expensive red since it's a color that I wear a lot.
