Jessica Botanicals Collection & RBL 50% Off Sale!

    Good evening, Dear Reader!

    Tonight I have the Jessica Botanicals Collection for you, which I bought based on Scrangie's review of them, as well as the fact that Jessica's Fall Goddess Collection really wowed me. Scrangie's pictures are, as always, spot-on, and as I went through mine I was more impressed with the colors than I was swatching them. It might just be the fact that I was swatching these on the heels of wearing really glowy nail polish that made them just as have the "umph!" that I'd been anticipating all these weeks that I've waited to get them. I'll have to give them another try, because even going through my pictures I see some winners.

    They applied well, and all required three coats to be opaque and even. I found that presenting them in alphabetical order starts and ends with some of teh stronger colors, so I'll go with that.

    First up is Butterfly Kisses, which is a very sparkly light blue.

    Next in line is Birds of Paradise, which is definitely a solid purple shimmer nail polish.

    Here's where things started getting weaker. Color Me Calla Lily is the only creme in this collection, a somewhat violet pink. Huh.

    We move on to Coral Reef Daisies, which, being a frosty coral pink nail polish, reminds me of the early 1980's...

    This is the one about which I was most excited, as well as the most let down: Loving the Lilacs. I expected a sparkly lilac, but got a somewhat muted and not-so-sparkly one.

    We end a little stronger with Rosy Romance, which is a girly pink shimmer nail polish.

    That's Jessica Cosmetics' Botanicals Collection for you.

    To end on a happier note, I got an email from Rescue Beauty Lounge. Here's the part you probably care about:

    RBL is in New York, so I'm assuming Eastern time for this. Have at it!
