Jessica Cosmetics; Polished in Pastels, Summer 2016

Happy Tuesday.  It's almost Fall, ALMOST!  But here in California we still have very Summer weather.  So I figured I'd share a final Summery collection with you.  Really though, this collection will be perfect for anyone planning a fairy/princess costume for Halloween and these will definitely work for your Spring manicures!   This is the Polished In Pastels collection from Jessica Cosmetics.  It's a 6-piece set, nice pastel cremes and purple shimmery shades.  You can get this kit now for $54.  Individual shades are $9.  So let's jump in and check these out.

I started with all the shimmery purples.  This is Angelic Lavender, a super frosty, pastel lavender.  It's almost a white color it's so light.  It's got a nice dose of gold shimmer too.  It's hard to see in my pictures and is much more obvious in real life.  But I have to say my personal preference is that this is a bit heavy on the shimmer and I'm not a fan of the frosty finish. I used 3 coats and topcoat.





Lilac Pearl is another soft purple, but this is a shimmery lilac shade.  It's just a touch less frosty so I do prefer it to the previous polish.  Formula and application were good.  I used 3 coats and topcoat.  





Blushing Violet is a pretty medium toned shimmery purple.  It's definitely my favorite of the 3 shimmers in this collection.  It doesn't have that same frosty look, so it's less streaky than the others.  And it's a nice shade of purple.  Formula and application were great.  I used 2 coats and topcoat.  





Pink Daisy is a pastel pink creme.  I like the color but found the formula a bit thin, causing application to be patchy.  I used 3 coats for even coverage and it dries to a glossy finish so no need for topcoat.  




Mint Blossom is my favorite of the collection.  I jut love things that are this mint color.  The end.  Thankfully the formula was much nicer, user-friendly.  I had full coverage in 2 coats and no topcoat needed.  




And last but not least is Periwinkle Bliss.  This soft blue was a really nice polish.  The color was appealing and looked great on my skin tone.  Formula and application were great.  I used 2 coats and no topcoat.
