Marc Jacobs Stone Jungle is a superbly sparkly silver. It is metallic. It looks like liquid silver on the nail.
Stone Jungle is not a polish to wear when you are show casing some bling because it is uber-bling on its own and draws attention to itself. That being said, it does draw attention to your hands and fingernails…so people will notice the bling but their eyes will be drawn to the metallic sheen of the polish. I think this would be a fabulous holiday colour or something to herald in the New Year in style.
Here’s Stone Jungle in the bottle.
The formula was easy to apply but can be a little brush-strokey so be careful with your final coat. It also highlights every lump, bump and ridge in your nails. I did not apply any base or top coat to the swatches. I slapped on coat number one and carefully applied coat number two for the swatches you see below (this method worked to apply the colour evenly).
For those of you that are observant and have noticed that my swatches are devoid of all jewellery, you will note that I now have a bit of sparkliness. Mr Swatchfest would like to make me officially Mrs Swatchfest and liked it enough to put a ring on it (oh oh oh, woah oh oh, oh oh uh-oh, oh oh oh).
I can’t fault the formula of the Marc Jacobs polishes. I have found the whole range (except Lux) to be just spectacular and am nearly at the end of my swatching of the range (one left, Ultraviolet).
Stone Jungle is similar to Zoya Trixie and NARS Silver Factory (part of the Photo Booth set that came out in the Andy Warhol collection). I don’t have Trixie anymore (swapped it away) but I do have Silver Factory which I think is a bit less metallic and looks more like little metallic particles (not glitter) suspended in a polish vs Stone Jungle’s metallic / molten metal look.
