NOTD – Jessica Nails Black Ice

Introducing the Stumpsters!  My new look teeny weeny fingernails!

The fabulous LionLovingTiger brought it to my attention that every cloud has a silver lining and that now was the time to break out those dark vampy shades!  And she was so right!

I thought I’d break out the bottle of Jessica Nails polish I won in in a Twitter giveaway a couple of weeks ago.

I’m loving this polish!  The longevity is ah-mazing! 4 days so far and no tip wear that I can see, although maybe that’s because my ‘tips’ end below my finger pads now that I think of it.. oh well, either way, no chips or flakes or any such nonsense.

It applied like a dream, 1 coat to reach opacity but 2 to tidy it up.  It is a glitter (and boy does it sparkle).  I finished with a coat of Seche Vite (my first ever use – I know, shocking!)  Which completely smoothed the gritty surface that glitters leave behind.  I’m not exactly relishing the thought of removal, but Helen gave me some great tips that I will be putting to good use!

    Beautiful colour!
    I’m not usually a fan of glitter polishes but I’ve just discovered Rescue Beauty Lounge’s Black Russian which I’ve fallen head over heels for. Not tried removing it yet but don’t think it will be to much hassle as the glitter flecks are tiny; if I do I’ll be sure to try Helen’s tip.

    I’ve also recently been forced into the Short Nail Club, but I have to say it’s so much better having short nails than long! For a start the nailpolish seems to last a lot longer, and as my skin tone lends towards darker, more vampish colours, I look bang on trend rather than Wicked Witch of the East (or was it West, can’t remember). I don’t take a layer off my eyeball when I put my contacts in either, which can only be a bonus I guess.

    Your nails look great, honest!
