No top coat was used in any of the following swatches:
Jesse's Girl JulieG Nail Color in Sushi for Two
Sushi for Two is a cantaloupe-ish coral jelly-creme (or "crelly" for short). I've noticed that most of the shades I own like this seem to require three coats for good opacity, and this one wasn't any different. But I think that extra coat is worth it because this color is just so "juicy" on the nail. I love it. No issues with application (aside from the streakiness after two coats).
Jesse's Girl JulieG Nail Color in Dolled Up Dorothy
The name of this shade is fitting because it's like a more "stylish" version of the various takes on Dorothy's red shoes (no glitter but lots of shimmer). I used two coats for my swatches, and that was enough for good opacity. The formula on this one was easy to work with.
Jesse's Girl JulieG Nail Color in Damsel
Damsel is actually a tiny bit lighter and a tiny bit more blue-based than what you see above. You know I love my cremes, and this one was not a disappointment This color is a one-coater, but I used two for the pic above. Perfect consistency and very easy to work with; it's one of these cremes that "paints itself."
Jesse's Girl JulieG Nail Color in Shark's Cove
If you like Sinful Colors Mint Apple, then you are going to love Shark's Cove. Instead of gold shimmer (like the shimmer in Mint Apple), Shark's Cove contains silver shimmer. It's also more of a true mint green, whereas Sinful Colors Mint Apple is more of a jadeite green. This is my favorite of all four shades I received for review--I can't stop looking at my hands when I'm wearing this one. The formula isn't perfect though--it requires three coats for the opacity you see above, and the consistency is a little bit thick, but I think it's worth the extra effort. So pretty for toes this spring.
The dry time for these polishes was good (like other Jesse's Girl polishes I own), with the exception of Shark's Cove, which did require some extra time to dry due to the thicker consistency and the fact that it requires three coats. Other than that, I was already a fan of the JulieG polishes and I think all four of these shades are nice additions to the line. I definitely want to try other colors (especially Holla-Peno, which I plan to pick up as soon as I see it at Rite Aid).
Do you own any Jesse's Girl JulieG polishes? Have you spotted the new 2013 shades at your Rite Aid yet? Thoughts?
