Jessica Coral Symphony for Spring 2014

Jessica Coral Symphony

Jessica Coral Symphony for spring 2014 features six new creme shades with a brand new formula!

This new formula is called “stretch” because the shades flow right onto the nails without any streaks then it stretches while it dries. This is supposed to help with coverage, chips and how long it lasts. I have yet to test this new formula for wearability, but it sounds promising!

The Coral Symphony collection was inspired by the creatures and blossoms deep within the sea. All six of these shades have excellent coverage with just two coats.

Jessica It’s a Girl Thing for Spring 2013 Swatches & Review

Jessica It s a Girl Thing

New this spring from Jessica is the It’s a Girl Thing collection.

This bright, fun collection features six new shades all inspired by and named after people the founder Jessica Vartoughian knows.

Upon first glance at the bottles I will admit, I wasn’t all that impressed. I thought they might be boring bright cremes. But they are really SO much better than that! They all have really nice shimmer in them, some more subtle than others. And let me talk about the formula for a second. It’s great. Jessica normally has a really nice creamy, smooth formula, and this collection was the same. All shades here were just two coats, some nearly covered completely in one.

Blue, Red & White Holiday Dot Mani

Holiday 2012 Dot Mani

When you think of Christmas colors traditionally you think of green, red, white, gold and silver right? But my favorite combo is actually a bit different.

I love a pale, icy blue with red and white. It’s actually one of my favorite color combinations in general, not just for Christmas. But something about it does say the holidays to me.

For this manicure I used Jessica Barely Blueberry for the base (three coats) then China Glaze With Love and Snow for the various sized dots.
