I first checked out Jesse’s Girl High Intensity Nail Color earlier this year, when the line launched. I was mostly pleased with my finds, although I was disappointed that the glass-flecked polishes were on the sheer side. Still stunning, but better as either layering polishes, or simply sheer with VNL.
I recently had the chance to check out three more shades from the collection that were included as samples I received during the Jesse’s Girl beauty blogger summit I participated in at CosmoProf (July 31-Aug 2, Las Vegas)!
First up, Beach Baby:
Beach Baby is a bright, neon hot pink! It’s amazing how different all three of those photos are in terms of color and vibrancy! One in natural light, one with flash and finally, one indoors. This color might have been better served over a coat of white polish, but it still stood out and looked like a neon jelly. I used three coats for this mani. Perfect summer color!
Glee is a glass-flecked duochrome of teal, yellow and green! I LOVE that last swatch shot – this color is so pretty. Unfortunately, it is a much-duped color, but still a steal at drugstore prices. Glee is reminiscent of Zoya Charla, OPI Catch Me in Your Net and Orly Haley’s Comet.
Spring Break is a pretty lilac creme, on trend with spring and summer of this year. It applied well, and I love the shine it has before top coat in these swatch photos!
Overall, these polishes are a great buy. I bought my original High Intensity polishes for $1.99 a bottle, but I’ve heard these are actually $2.99. You can find them on the Jesse’s Girl web site, or at Rite Aid.
In terms of application, I had no issues. Each formula acted like it should – neon was neon, drying fast and jelly-like. Creme was smooth and streak-free, and glass-flecked was sparkly with no pull from the cuticle to the tip on second coat application.
I like the polish bottles and the brush handle, which make for easy application. I tend to put the bottle of polish between my thighs and paint, so it holds well in that spot!
What do you think of these colors? Have you tried Jesse’s Girl High Intensity Nail Color yet?
I hope to show you the new Julie G collection soon, I hear it is starting to pop up in stores – Nouveau Cheap has a couple pics of the collection and more info! There’s a couple stunners in that collection!
