It’s May, and wedding season has quickly snuck up on us. While everyone begins to adorn florals and massive hats, JESSICA Cosmetics have launched their latest nail collection ‘Glowing with Love’.
I love the nail care items from JESSICA (the life jacket is wonderful for my peeling and ridged nails) but am yet to try her colour polishes. With my own big day approaching it kinda seemed appropriate to give these a whirl.
What JESSICA says:
“Relationships evolve through special moments along the way. From the romance to the proposal, to the engagement and prenup, and eventually to the wedding and the vows, a bride’s love story shimmers and sparkles much like her heart on her special day. Inspired by the beauty of romance, this glistening collection represents each special moment for when she was undeniably Glowing With Love.”
The Jessica Glowing With Love collection comprises six colours (two glitters and four satin / shimmer finishes):
- The Romance – A peachy / rose gold satin.
- The Proposal – a white confetti-esque glitter in a sheer polish.
- The Engagement – a silver (slightly holographic) glitter.
- The Prenup – described as a ‘pale, pearl gold’. Reminds me of Champagne Pop by Becca.
- The Wedding – a delicate off white (with very slight blue undertones).
- The Vows – a true pastel pink with a finish.

All swatches are with two coats and no top coat (I used JESSICA’s Life Jacket as a base coat). This formula can either be very sheer with one coat creating a hint of colour and sheen; or built up to be very opaque with two coats. Personally, I prefer one coat as it gives a more delicate and elegant feel.

I think this is a beautiful collection for anyone’s wedding (or before and after for that fact). Whilst I typically don’t go for satins or glitter finishes day to day these are so elegant and classic I can definitely can see myself reaching for one of these on the big day.
The wear is also great (which is just what you need on your big day). I trailed The Proposal, The Engagement and The Wedding and after 5 days (and no top coat) there is no chipping, just a mild fading (with The Wedding shade only). The Proposal and The Engagement are pretty indestructible and as someone who doesn’t really like glitter finishes because I typically find them scratchy I found these to be smooth and non-gritty on the nails. Yay!
The tones, textures and finishes mimics those used at weddings; the satins, the confetti and the sparkle. As someone who is still in the planning stages on their wedding I have to admit I do feel inspired by this range. My only one criticism is the naming of ‘Prenup’ – I think from a diehard romantic point of view I think maybe Honeymoon or Minimoon may have been more appropriate.
All Jessica polishes are 7-FREE (No Formaldehyde, No Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, DSP, Camphor, Xylene or Ethyl Tosylamide), cruelty free, vegan friendly and made in the USA. Long-lasting & chip resistant.
