Velvet Rose

Yes, that's right. Yet another Jessica polish. I'm telling you, I can't get enough of these! I wish I heard about this brand years ago. If I had, I bet more than 75% of my collection would be of this brand. Slowly but surely I am definitely building my tiny collection of Jessica's. I can't wait to get my hands on some more!

As usual. I couldn't expect anything less than perfection with this one. Like the many others, this one went on smoothly in 2 coats.




As you can see, Velvet Rose is a bright sort of frosted pearl'ish pink with slight yellow undertones. It's so beautiful! In the bottle it looks exactly like this, except once I swatched this onto my nail, it was even more vibrant. Thankfully the pictures came out accurate.

I usually tend to stay away from these kinds of finishes, the frosty pearly ones because I truly hate seeing brush strokes but I am so glad that I picked this up (I'm a bit OCD about that). I have been having such great luck with all these Jessica polishes and I hope my luck doesn't run out!

So how do you feel about frosted finishes and obvious brush strokes?

  3. This is a gorgeous color! I'm on the fence with frosts and brush strokes; I think frost finishes are gorgeous, and I'm willing to accept minimal brushstrokes as inherent to the finish, but if it's a total mess I'll use it once and never touch it again! I don't think this one looks bad at all, it would totally pass my brushstroke test! :)
