Embracing Colour | Jessica Nails Prime Collection

Jessica Nails Prime Collection Blog ReviewContinuing with the theme of pampering and indulging, now seems like a pretty good time for a fresh manicure, right?  Summer is here, and with it comes the brightest, boldest shades.  Jessica Nails are celebrating colour right now with their (primary) colour-popping new Prime Collection.  So, five sassy shades later, which polish impresses most with its colour and application?
Jessica Nails New Summer Prime Collection









Prime Collection c/o Jessica Nails 


Orange (scarlet crème) - totally surprised by how much I love this shade.  Similar to coral lipstick, it takes some getting used to... and then you're smitten! 

Yellow (sunflower crème) - sorry, still unable to warm to yellow nails. Perhaps it's my pasty complexion?  I definitely feel as though this is a shade better suited to darker skin tones

Magenta (fuchsia crème) - LOVE!  Such a sophisticated twist on Barbie-pink nails.  The ultimate colour pop and one you'll see a lot of this season for sure

Purple (rich crème) - vampy, mysterious and a lovely way of going bold without scaring yourself witless

Blue (cobalt crème) - my all-time favourite.  I feel as though I've been searching for the perfect shade of blue my entire life and finally I've got my mitts on it (literally).  Yes, yes and ten thousand times, yes!

Application?  I found each 'primary colour' only needed one layer of polish, with purple needing two.  The biggest surprise with regard to coverage was the striking orange and yellow shades; unlike most other light shades, they applied heavily and without streaks.  It's safe to say I have a pretty large collection of Jessica Nails polishes now, and mainly due to how quick the drying time is.  I'm all about those speedy manicures!

  6. This made me LOL! Yellow nails remind me of smoker’s nails haha I can totally understand where you’re coming from. But I do love them on darer skin tones. I think it has to be exactly the right shade of yellow though, otherwise that smoker’s nails thing pops into my head haha Love the blue on you! I have a crazy amount of cobalt & electric blue polishes but I can never find the time to bother painting my nails now. Maybe I’ll have to pamper myself soon haha I love how it matches your outfit!

  10. The Fuchsia and the blue would be my picks as well. I do like orange, but not as much, and I am not a fan of yellow on myself either.

  15. Yellow looks absolutely horrid on my medium complexion and my nails look dirty and old with it. So it's not just you, Gabrielle who struggles with the colour.

  19. Cute and super fun shades!! They look so perfect for summertime. I bet yellow nailpolish must be hard to pull off and I agree that maybe it suits better to darker complexions. Blue is undoubtly your color, and you're rocking it with that mani! if I had to choose one it would probably be the magenta one (I'm a girly-girl at heart) or blue. :)

  20. I’m all about pampering myself, every chance I get. I haven’t done my nails myself in years, I actually hated doing my nails, it was torture waiting for them to dry and now I kind of miss it. I love all of these colors. Your nails look great.

  26. I love the orange and magenta shades but like you yellow just doesn't suit me at all. I don't usually wear a lot of blue when it comes to nail polish either but this blue shade is really pretty :) x

  27. Wow these are some gorgeous bright shades! Your lovely long nails put mine to shame - I desperately need to grow them as it's so lovely to have painted nails at this time of year!

  30. I'd never heard about the brand before! These shades are lovely, and that electric blue looks great on your skin - but I've already mentioned how that shade is very flattering even with clothing. The purple shade is also super pretty! And the quality seems quite impressive if you only need one coat for most of them. That's a good discovery for me, thank you!

  31. The collection is so bright and cheerful!
    I have never heard of this brand.
    I try to be colourful but I end up sticking to my Red OPI Infinite Shine.
    However; I am wanting to try some natural nail polish and I think I might do a review on the blog soon.

  32. The blue shade is completely fitting you, I love your nails! Although I am a sucker for dark shades for nails and lips, during summer period I love the yellow you picked and the red. You are right, summer is here , nails have to be on point! Hugs, Miha :)

  38. I was pretty sceptical when you said that the blue was your favourite colour until I saw that picture at the end, that is such a lovely shade of blue!!! Summer is definitely the time to try bright colours on your nails, I say this with a pastel pink on my nails at the moment... Will definitely need to be a little more adventurous next time I'm painting them lol! xo
