My first Jessica


Today I bring to you another RAOK for me.  My friend Janet had a nail polish that she didnt want anymore, go figure, so she let me have it - and when she sent it to me - she had incllded a new brand of nail polish for me - Jessica!!

Shantung was a petty Copper Orange.  I liked it so much, I do believe if I were still of child bearing years, I would name my next girl child after this np.

She is stunning in the bottle, but when I put her on the nail - OH BOY....

...did she ever shine!!  She was just stunning to me!! 

Since this was my first Jessica - I rally had no idea what to expect - but I actually never have any expectations with np.  I have yet to meet a np I can't work with and that I can't make to last at least a week if I wanted it to.
Before I even opened the bottle, I knew I was going to be wearing her as a full mani - so I went through my whole manicure procedure - this is NOT a swatch.  See above link for my manicure routine.
From the time I opened the bottle and applied the first stroke I was in heaven.  The application on Jessica is exceptional, at least to me it was.  every stroke was even and there was no going back to straighten anything out.  I am a 3 coater by choice - but I could have gotten away with two.
I have no complaints about this polish what so ever. 

I was going to Konad her today - but on the way to the Post Office today I broke a nail.  I was able to save it and it was on the thumb.  Thank goodness I had my nail file with me (I never leave home w/o it) otherwise I would have gone back home to change my mani - yes, I'm that anal when out in public. 

Well, that does it for me today!!  Once again, I have to thank my girl Janet for her graciousness.  She knows I'm a nail polish nut.  I actually have her hunting out colors for me too - but I think she enjoys it because she finds them!! :-)

Until next time....Happy Polishing!!
