JESSICA COSMETICS CALIFORNIA GIRL SUMMER COLLECTION 2019 - SWATCHES & REVIEW

Feel flirty and cool this Summer with the refreshing new JESSICA Cosmetics California Girl collection.

I have all 6 polishes from the Summer 2019 California Girl collection to review for you today :)



OCEAN WAVES 
Ocean Waves is a teal green nail polish shade.
I love this tone of green! So fun!

The formula is PERFECT! It isn't streaky or patchy and it self-levels nicely. 

It's SUPER vibrant and pigmented*, covers amazingly well and builds up to full opacity nice and easily in one thin coat!
*It's so pigmented I would definitely recommend wearing a couple of coats of base coat to avoid green staining. For the record, it didn't stain my nails, but I would still wear base coat just to be safe (no one likes Smurf hands!)


VALLEY GIRL
Valley Girl is a taffy pink nail polish shade. 
I'm a sucker for pink! This is a good one!

The formula is FANTASTIC! It isn't streaky or patchy and it self-levels nicely. 

It's vibrant, covers amazingly well and builds up to full opacity nice and easily in two thin coats.


COOL IN THE POOL
Cool in the Pool is a pastel mint blue-green nail polish shade.
A crowd pleaser for sure! So pretty!

The formula is FANTASTIC! It applies slightly patchy but is still easy to work with and self-levels nicely. 

It's pigmented, covers well and builds up to full opacity nice and easily in two thin coats.


MALIBU BARBIE
Malibu Barbie is a shimmery pink nail polish shade with fine pink and gold shimmers scattered throughout it.
STUN-NING!

The formula is very sheer, but buildable (don't be deceived by the first coat!) The colour builds up really nice and easily.

I guess this one comes down to personal preference and nail length, as to how many coats will give you your desired effect / matches what you see in the bottle. My swatch shows two thin coats (which is how I'd personally wear it), but I also like the delicate shimmery effect in just one coat. 

This one would also be sheer enough to layer over another colour as a shimmer effect top coat - I think it would look SUPER cool over black.


DESERT SUNSET
Desert Sunset is a lemonade pink nail polish shade.
Oh, I like this one a lot!

The formula is good! It applies slightly patchy but is still easy to work with and self-levels nicely. 

It covers well and builds up to full opacity nice and easily in two - three thin coats. 
(My swatch shows two coats).


POPSICLE KISSES
Popsicle Kisses is a watermelon pink nail polish shade.
It's lovely! I didn't expect to like this one as much as I did. 
Would look spectacular with a tan! 

The formula is FANTASTIC! It isn't streaky or patchy and it self-levels nicely. 

It's vibrant and pigmented, covers amazingly well and builds up to full opacity nice and easily in one - two thin coats, depending on personal preference.

As per usual, JESSICA Cosmetics have nailed this collection! The colour selection is absolutely PERFECT for Summer and the warmer weather at the beach or down by the pool.

It's hard to choose a favourite from this collection, but my personal picks (right now) are; Ocean Waves, Valley Girl & Desert Sunset. I am sure if you were to ask me tomorrow, my picks would be different...they are all just such pretty colours! 
JESSICA gets an A++ for the colour selection!

I love that JESSICA nail colours are Cruelty Free, Vegan and 7-Free which means they are free from nasty chemicals like Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, DBP, Camphor, Xylene and Ethyl Tosylamide - so they are gentle on you and the environment!

JESSICA polishes are available in classic and trend-setting shades with a huge variety of finishes including; creme, matte, metallic, glitter, opalescent, sheer and frost.
I cannot wait to try out some more! Definitely recommend!
