Jesse’s Girl High Intensity Nail Color Swatches

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.

Hi ya’all! Holy HOTness. It’s been 100 degrees here in the Dirty Jerz. I was even starting to think of: But then I quickly realized how much more I hate the snow than the heat…although I don’t need to carry my inhaler around in winter like I do this week! Anyway! Do you spy the …

Nicole by OPI Black Texture

The next Nicole by OPI Texture Coat I have to share is Black Texture. I am finding the Texture Coats to be much like the OPI Shatters. I find this Texture to crackle in a way that I like – with quite a bit of the base color showing through. Swatches! I love this color …
