Questions & Answers for Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Polish

Question
If this polish wore well for you, what else do you do and use for your manicure?
The reviews I read seemed to be mixed on this polish with regards to how it wears. If it wears well for you... do you have a particular way you do your manicure? What products did you use along with the polish? I think information like this really makes all the difference. Thank you for sharing!

This is wearing well for me. I filed buffed my nails, used seche vite base coat, three coats of polish (ultraviolet colour) and butter london top coat. It is lasting longer than my last salon mani!

I had just a regular normal manicure done, base coat (found out the hard way with another brand that the dark colors will stain your nails if you don't use it) 2 coats of polish and a top coat. I think I let them really dry for 10 minutes and was off and running . And seriously, very little chipping after 2 weeks

I use a base coat first. Then I do the three-stroke method, wait for it to dry, add a second coat, and add a topcoat. Without a base and topcoat, this polish chips really easily, but it lasts for about four days with this method :)

It did not wear well, less than two days before it chipped; no top coat, yrs on the base coat. I do use opi, China glaze, butter London, and zoya. Even some sinful colors, all last longer than this very over priced but beautifully colored polish.

Unfortunately, polish wear is subject to personal body chemistry. What chips for one person may wear like iron on another. I got amazing wear from my MJ. What I used: Essie Feed Me basecoat (sadly discontinued) and Essie Good to Go quick dry topcoat. Hope that's helpful!

I honestly feel the Marc Jacobs polish wears best on its own with no base or top coat. I tried a couple different kinds of base coats and top coats and nothing wore as well as the polish did on its own.

I've had great luck with all three of the colors I've bought in this line. I've gotten a week of wear out of each but I tend to get pretty good wear out of most polishes. My routine is to wash my hands/nails with regular liquid soap. I use a nail brush to make sure I get all of the unseen oils, dirt, etc... Dry with a paper towel - again, I don't want anything to transfer onto my clean nails. And then I swipe an alcohol pad across each of my nails. (I always use cuticle oil on my nails after I remove polish so no worries about it being too drying.) For a base coat I've used a couple of different ones with this polish. I've used Beauty Secrets moisturizing base coat, which is very inexpensive, but one that's given me good results. The other I've used is ORLY bonder base coat. It's a inexpensive sticky base coat option that has worked well for me for years. The top coat I always use is Seche Vite. I like it because it's fast-drying. With some brands it can cause some shrinkage if you don't run the brush along the top of your nails. With these polishes I didn't have any shrinking issues. I think that the key is just making sure you start with very clean nails and using base and top coats.

I start by using the Nails Inc. Base coat. Apply a thin layer of that and wait for it to dry. After that apply a thin layer of your desired color (I recommend Lola...it is gorgeous!) and once that is relatively dry, apply another layer (this time a bit thicker) over the first coat. Make sure to paint the top edges of the nails, as this will help immensely to stop chipping. Once that is fairly dry, I follow with the Nails Inc. Kensington Caviar Top Coat. Voila...perfect manicure! This lasted about 5 days without even the tiniest chip!

I wrote a review on it here:

Always use a base coat. I use sticky. As well as a good top coat. Don't go cheap on either.

I did use the Illamasqua base coat before layering my color from Marc Jacobs. It helps make the color last longer. I also used the Julep Gel top coat-which I swear by!! I Hope this helps

I use OPI base and top coat with all of my polishes. It keeps some of the polishes on but worked especially well with this product.

Formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin aren't the same thing. Polishes that are 4-free are free of the resin.

I would recommend you spend your money on a different polish; this chipped after 2 days.....what a waste! The salesperson I spoke to said it was like "40 coats of laquer;" not!!

150SHINY
I am very disappointed and upset. I love Hi-Shine Nail Polish but the 150SHINY is terrible. Over 5 minutes after applying it is lifted up and comes off like a piece of polyethylene film . I'm going to throw 150SHINY to the garbage. I want an explanation.
