Jessica In Bloom Collection Summer 2014

Yay it’s Monday! Said no one. Ever. I’m going to drag my feet all day because I’m feeling cruddy so I’m just looking forward to the evening so I can pass out again. Wow, that sounds really pathetic but whatever. So this weekend I went looking for the Morgan Taylor Neon Collection but I couldn’t find it anywhere. Luckily I didn’t leave empty-handed because I found the Jessica In Bloom Collection which is their Summer 2014 offering. I feel like I can always count on Jessica for top-notch cremes because most of their polishes seem to be cremes. I’m not complaining because there’s nothing more delicious than a perfect creme. Let’s take a look at my swatches, and I’ll let you know what I think below.

So these colors aren’t really what I was expecting for a Summer collection. It feels like this year, a lot of the Summer collections are very muted and could work as Spring colors. I kind of miss super juicy bright collections this year. With that being said, this is a nice collection. The colors are pretty and they look nice together. However, the formula was not as great as I am used to when it comes to Jessica. Don’t get me wrong: the formula isn’t horrible, but it’s not the usual creme perfection I’m used to. All of them were a tad bit streaky so they needed a little patience with application. I applied a thicker second coat for these polishes and then smoothed everything out with Seche. I’m a little on the fence with this collection because I like it but the colors aren’t that unique, and I feel like I probably have many dupes. Then I look at that mint color and those blues and I kind of want to love them hard. I have no hope.

If you want to try these polishes out, I’m selling my set for $26 shipped in a box with tracking. (SOLD) These retail for $8 each so that’s a good deal for the set of 6 polishes. I’m just trying to be good and not get overrun with polish again. Anyway, let me know what you think of this collection. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

    I feel like, as a whole, these polishes work so well together. Perhaps not the most groundbreaking, but they are lovely!

      I know, right? WHY MUST I WANT EVERYTHING? I should have passed on these but then I see something new and some weird part of me takes over.

    They make some amazing creme shades. I like how muted some of them are here too.

      Yes, that is a perfect word: muted.

    Your swatches are always so amazing! I appreciate the work you do, I love seeing such nice swatches of all the different collections :)

    These colors are all so beautiful, but I feel like I have similar colors – which doesn’t stop me from wanting them, of course. How similar are Longing to Baker Street from Nails Inc and Blazing to other orangey reds (I have Essie Clambake)?

      Thank you so much, Rose! <3 I think Longing has a bit more of a crelly consistency but the color is pretty close to Baker Street–maybe a tad darker. I don’t have Clambake from it looks pretty similar from the swatches I have seen.

    We’re in the same boat for monday! I have finals today and I’m just blaahhh. Can’t wait to get home and sleep!
    They look like an essie spring collection, no? I can’t remember which collection, but I could have sworn essie did similar colors for spring. Longing and enchanting look pretty nice though :)

      You are right! There are similar colors here. In fact, most of the spring/summer collections seem to overlap so much.

      I hope you get some good rest tonight and hope you did great on your finals.

    It’s odd how Jessica sometimes releases these under-the-radar collections. At least you find them for us! ;)
    These are nice, but nothing’s really jumping out at me as “wowza!” I kind of hate the naming convention, too…I don’t know why.
    I’ve recently been trying to curb my “it’s new, I must have it” shopping reflex for cosmetics. That way, if I am still thinking about it, I know it’s more “OK” to spend money on it, whereas in some other instances, I get over it if I wait for a bit. It is difficult, but I think it’s for the best in the long run, lol.
    I hope you feel better! It’s a busy week for me, so I’ll be glad when Friday is here.

    I really like these! Very easy on the eyes, great variety of colors that never look dated. Nothing groundbreaking, I’ll give you that, but good basics :) Whispering is my favorite :)
