The Beauty Buffs – Pastels




Hi everyone! Today I am super excited to be sharing my first post as part of The Beauty Buffs!

beautybuffsI have to tell you that my first scheduled post was a big fat fail. I finished up last night before going to bed, and I scheduled it to go live today at 5 am. You know what would have been helpful? if I actually clicked on the “schedule” button. Womp, womp! I didn’t even realize it didn’t publish until a few minutes ago that I got home from work. Hopefully the next time I will actually schedule it correctly. The Beauty Buffs is a group that was organized by the always fantastic Nory from Fierce Make Up And Nails. I’m really happy that she asked me to be a part of this group because I am getting to know some really wonderful ladies in the process. We will be posting bi-monthly on Wednesdays so I hope that you will visit us. For our very first post, we are focusing on pastels so you will be seeing some great posts from my fellow Beauty Buffs. I decided to re-swatch a collection that is the epitome of fun pastels: Jessica Gelato Mio! Don’t even get me started on how much I love every single polish in this collection. In fact, this is my favorite Jessica Collection of all time. Let’s take a look at my swatches below:

Jessica Lime Cooler 1Jessica Lime Cooler 2Jessica Lime Cooler

Jessica Strawberry Shake 1Jessica Strawberry Shake 2Jessica Strawberry Shake

Jessica Tangerine Dreamz 1Jessica Tangerine Dreamz 2Jessica Tangerine Dreamz

Jessica Banana Peel 1Jessica Banana Peel 2Jessica Banana Peel

Jessica Barely Blueberry 1Jessica Barely Blueberry 2Jessica Barely Blueberry

Jessica Surfer Boyz 'n Berry 1Jessica Surfer Boyz 'n Berry 2Jessica Surfer Boyz ‘n Berry

Before you even ask, I will tell you that the formula on all of these beauties is really fantastic. I was really surprised because similar colors always require a billion coats to even out and look good, but these applied like buttah. While this collection is from 2012, all the polishes are still readily available online so don’t fret! If you’re not familiar with Jessica, you’re going to want to give them a chance–I promise that you will fall in love!

So, let me know what you think of this collection. I hope that you love it as much as I do and that you will take a moment to check out some other fun pastel posts below. Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I will catch you on the flippity flip.

    I swear to the gods… the wp Schedule button only works half the time! I have no idea why- I know how to click a button properly! But sometimes the scheduled time has come and gone… and it just DID NOT WORK.

    I’ve always wanted to buy a Jessica nail polish, but I’m not too much of a fan of pastel so I’ll wait until something really catches my eye hahaha. That said… I definitely liked Surfer Boyz ‘n Berries the best!

    I love Jessica Polish. And your swatches are lovely but I’m just not a pastels fan. Fingers crossed they bring out nice brights set this summer

    Your swatches make me want every single polish. Beautiful colors and so perfect for spring and even summer. I still am loving your baby stiletto nails. You should keep them a while longer.

    Ugh, these colors are just stunning! Can you try to make them look a little bad so I don’t feel the urge to buy every single one of them??! 😉 Great first post!

    1. 31 March, 2014 at 6:55 am

      Look who’s talking! You’re making me want all the polishes you post about! 😀
