Marc Jacobs in #212 Surrender Dorothy + Comparisons & a Layering Combo

Direct sunlight
Today, let's have a look at a polish I haven't seen get much attention. This is Marc Jacobs in #212 Surrender Dorothy, released for Spring 2016. Marc Jacobs released a few polishes for the permanent collection this spring that weren't exactly grouped in with the pastels I posted earlier, and this was one of them.

Surrender Dorothy is a rosy red glitter including small hexagonal glitters and microglitters in a clear base - the same composition as Marc Jacobs in #148 Glinda. It builds up pretty well because the microglitter fills in the gaps between the slightly larger small glitter; this is 3 thin coats with 1 coat of Gelous and 1 coat of Seche Vite. The formula is good for a glitter, not thick and gloopy.

I do find this to be an odd color for a Dorothy-inspired polish - although this does make it more unique in the realm of "ruby slipper" polishes. It does better match the color the actual shoes from the movie have faded to, though.

I don't really like this color on its own, so I decided to layer it over Sinful Colors in Haute Koffee (swatched on its own here). See more after the jump.
