Jessica Nails | La Vie En Rose

Jessica Nails SS18 La Vie en Rose
Is... is that the last of the snow now?  I don't want to jinx things, but it really does feel as though Spring is on its way now.  I mean, the fact we're no longer stepping out into sub zero temperatures has got to count for something, right?!  We may not quite be able to jump into Spring in the way we want to just yet (uh, might hold off on those frilly mini dresses for a bit longer), but we can embrace in another, more subtle way.  Time to get out your nail polish remover and coat your talons in pastel shades!  Nude nails continued trending throughout winter (lifelong fan though over here), but now it's time to inject a subtle helping of colour with this season's pastel shades!  I adore pastel shades for Spring, and so with this in mind I'm totally smitten with Jessica Nails' Spring 2018 collection: La Vie En Rose (Life in Pink).  The so-pretty-it-hurts name for the collection aside, it comprises six pastel colours, including the most gorgeous shade of lilac that I've been wearing non-stop since getting my paws on the new Spring Collection...
Jessica Nails Spring Collection 2018 La Vie en Rose
Jessica Nails La Vie en Rose Lavender Lush
With Ultra Violet being Pantone's Colour of the Year, it's fabulous to see a shade of purple here in Jessica Nails' collection.  The one colour I've always pushed against is lilac, and yet here I am, proudly wearing it on my nails and showing it off to anyone who hangs around me for longer than a second.  Three warmer shades are also in this collection (Peony, Posh and Pinkies Up), each on the scale of peach-to-pink and with subtle differences to keep manicures looking fresh and slightly different each week.  The two lightest shades (Lavish and Cheeky) will be experimental shades for me, having never really tried such pale shades with cool tones on my nails before.

Jessica Nails' formula has always been a favourite of mine, with their Top Priority top coat becoming my go-to nearly five years ago.  No more than one or two coats are needed, depending on how opaque you prefer your manicures.  Better yet?  They're one of the rare brands that are truly chip-free for as long as we're all hoping for deep down.  Put it this way, Lavender Lush layered with their Top Priority top coat has been sitting prettily on my nails for the past week.  No chips.

Jessica Nails SS18 La Vie en Rose Pastel ShadesSo, how do I rate this new collection from Jessica Nails?  Ten out of ten, of course!  The range of pastels is beautiful.  I would have loved to see a baby blue shade included, but rest assured the La Vie En Rose Collection will have you (and your nails) covered throughout this exciting new season!  Can't wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below - Do any of these shades stand out to you?  What colour are you wearing on your nails right now?  


With love,

  5. These colors are absolutely gorgeous and so perfect for spring! I especially love that lilac shade, which looks so beautiful on you! I'm hoping that spring comes sooner rather than later. We're supposed to have a snow storm tomorrow into Thursday :( I'm so over the snow already, so these pretty shades are making me optimistic! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far!

  6. These pastel shades are gorgeous! A great way to get ready for the spring and get those positive spring vibes on. I'm a big fan of pastel nail- polishes and I think they look great on both lighter and darker skin tones.

    These Jessica Nails nail-polishes seem amazing. Lavender Lush is my personal favourite from this collection but they are all lovely. A baby blue would have been welcomed as well, but there are more than enough shades to pick from...and who knows someone might decide to get them all. It is easy to get tempted to do exactly that. Beautiful photographs and presentation.

    Have a lovely day!

  17. While I don't often have pastel colours on my nails - usually just brights or deep navy/black colours - I do love how chip resistant these are! My current polish is pretty badly chipped, haha!

    Hope you are having a good week so far :) I've lost my voice so not the best week for me, haha!

  21. Total pastel paradise sweet Gabrielle! Lavender Lush is such a stunning stand-out shade on you and makes for the perfect upbeat spring look :) The La Vie En Rose collection is all the dreamy, such incredible colours that pop and vibe perfectly as pastel tones. Peony and Posh really catch my eye (probably as they're pink haha ;) ), but I'm crushing hard on the whole collection. Such blissfully beautiful photography as always babe, I'm adoring your cloud nine set-up, all the divine and magical! <3 <3

  23. Oh, I'm in love with these pastel shades. All shades are perfect for spring. However some shades are not suitable for Indian skin tones but the pinks, lilac are great for everyone. Personally I love this collection and these shades are looking pretty on your nails. The finish is brilliant <3 Have a great day <3 Kisses <3

  24. Hahah I thought I'd paint my nails in a neon green shade but yours looks so pretty with the neutrals, haha perhaps I should change my mind on this?! Happy to embrace spring though and doing it with nail polish is a chic way indeed. Hope you're having a lovely week hun! Xx

  25. Pastel, peonies and lavender is said to be the colors of this spring 2018, so you picked very well and in trend. My favourite nail polish from this collection are lavender rush and peony, they are like princess colors haha. I don't own so many nail polish as I usually opt for either red or black, white or nude, even sometimes just a transparent nail polish. Thanks for sharing this collection with us, it's really girly and beautiful!

  28. Such great colours! I loooove a lilac colour, and anything else pastel too to be honest! Today I was wearing a darker blue-ish shade with an accent nail with dark blue glitters! :D The weeks before I was wearing more pastel pink shades because I thought it went well with the brighter days. :D

  29. Loved this post Gabrielle! I really hope spring is here now too, and I always end up doing my nails around this time of year too. There's something about putting on some pastel or colourful shades to bring that spring feeling into my life again. I really like these pastel shades too, so pretty. - Tasha

  36. Love these colors. I'm a huge fan of pastels! Lavender based shades will always be my favorite, but honestly I would wear any of these! Currently... Zero polish on the fingers. Yup, that needs to change ASAP. But as a teacher, I was my hands a million times a day and they chip so fast! Still... Mani is in my near future!

  37. Spring is on the way in my neck of the woods i hope the same is going for you. i tried to get my nails done today but they were booked up, I’m so happy now I get to see these beautiful spring colors. I like Pinkie’s Up the best.

  38. Those are beautiful, I love Pinkies Up. You're right though, a baby blue would complete the range.

  56. How pretty are these shades! I love pastel colors and seeing them on other people's nails, but sadly most of the lighter (especially cool toned) shades look terrible on me 😅 The top coat on the other hand sounds exactly like what I need!

  57. These shades are all absolutely gorgeous! I had nude acrylics done not too long ago, and my nails have been so weak since. I do dislike having plain nails though, so as soon as my nails have overcome the worst damage I plan on sticking to just nail varnish rather than full acrylics, and these colours would all be perfect for me. Gorgeous post.
