Maybe I didn’t move in the right neighborhood. Can you imagine having Jessica in your vicinity? It’s kind of good thing that little one is keeping me busy. :D But I have more time now and thought I would ask them if I could borrow testers of new limited editions for day or two to make swatches for you … and they agreed. This was one of the more requested themes from you but it wasn’t really possible until now. To be honest, it still wouldn’t be, if I didn’t live right around the corner.
Sooo – the newest Jessica LE already hit our shelf’s and it’s called In Bloom. There are 6 creme nail polishes in collection, but wait for the best part – if you buy the whole set it comes in cute box, which you then use to display the whole bouquet of nail polishes. <3
I managed to break both of my pointing finger nails (poor nutrition and nail care seem to be new mothers trademark ), so I didn’t manage to wear any of the nail polishes as whole manicure. Unfortunately all you’re getting are quick swatches.
Majority of the In Bloom collection are pastel kind of a shades. Jessica Loving is lighter pink shade. I’m as far form pink loving nail polishes as person can be, but this shade strikes me as something wearable without being grandmomish. Muted, but not to the point of blending with the background. Jessica Awakening is similar as Loving, only in violetish tones. Both shades changed undertone as the light temperature changed, so I’m uncomfortable defining them as warm and cool.
Jessica Whispering is green. Yes, that means I loved it. :D Application was similar to that of other “pastel” shades in this LE – neither gliding or difficult. But I did get the feeling that Whispering was slightly easier to apply. Jessica Enchanting concludes the pastel nail polish selection with it’s light blue color. I have neither love or hate for this color – good for nail art base, but I probably wouldn’t ware it on it’s own.
Now for onto my favorites from Jessica In Bloom LE. I’m sure you’ll tell me I’m boring, but I can’t help it if dark blue and red are two of my all time favorite nail polish colors. Jessica Blazing is one of those timeless red shades with it’s almost neutral red shade, but still slightly leaning to the warm side. And Jessica Longing – gorgeous, vibrant, electric, blue … ahhhhh. Plus both of these shades were easier to apply than the “pastel crowd”.
All swatches consist of 2 layers + top coat.
I didn’t talk that much about application as I make videos instead of explaining with word. My thin coat can be your normal one …
