Marc Jacobs Midnight in Paris

Welcome to  a very difficult polish. Unique bottle with a great brush? Check. Great color? Check. Amazing one coater? Check. Photographs color accurately? No check.

Sephora describes this polish as "a collectable nail lacquer inspired by the magic of a Parisian night in a chic blue shade for the holiday season. " Midnight in Paris comes with a keepsake box, and a miniature storybook. The box adds a nice touch, especially if you are giving it as a gift. The storybook doesn't add much to the product in my opinion, and I wouldn't really say it was a story, more of a couple of facts about Marc Jacobs.

See the swatches after the break!
For my swatches I didn't have any outside sunlight, so all photos had to be taken indoors. However, if there's interest, I can definitely re-swatch and use sunlight. All pictures are taken with one thick coat of Midnight in Paris, with no topcoat.

Midnight had an amazing formula, and is a one-coater if you use a thick coat. If you tend towards thinner coats, then you'll need two thin coats.

One of the cool things about this polish (and annoying things) is that it is not a straight up navy blue. It almost has a little bit of green and a muted dusky greyish quality too. It makes it unique to my collection, but also makes it hard to describe.

Marc Jacobs Midnight in Paris is a creme, and has faster than average drying time. I definitely recommend picking it up, or asking for it for the holidays!
