The kind folks at Jessica Cosmetics sent me this beautiful “Ocean Glow” Phenom collection to review for my followers.

The Jessica Cosmetics Phenom collection is a phenomenal evolution in polish technology. It’s fast, it lasts, and it shines. Exclusively formulated for salon professionals (but you don’t have to be a professional to purchase it), the 3-Step Phenom Polish System delivers fast-drying in natural light, chip resistant, gel like shine that last up to 10 days, and removes easily like polish. No LED/UV lamps are needed. JESSICA’s custom Base coats are exclusively formulated to work flawlessly with the Phenom system.

So I set out to test the Phenom collection and see if it truly does last 10 days.

You all know I use my hands all day long and typing up to 12 hours a day (yes I do) between working on my blog or working for my non-profit organization I’m always on my computer typing which can destroy a manicure of any kind.

I am blessed with very nice strong natural nails so I do not like to do any type of LED polish treatments as it weakens my nails so I stick to regular polish.  However, we all know that regular polish, regardless of the brand and the amount of abuse you put your hands through each day, can start to chip in as little as 3 days.

That is why I was so excited to discover that Jessica Cosmetics had come out with a No LED polish that lasts up to 10 days.

Included in any of the Phenom collections will be a base coat, a final shine top coat and three amazing colors.  The Ocean Glow comes with:  Purple Urchin, Sea Star (which is what I have on my nails), and Blue Nautical.  Each beautiful color has a hint of tiny sparkles for an added glow.  I love them all.

Today was day one for my 10 day test of the Phenom collection (photo below).  I will be back to comment on day 10 and show you the results.

Day # 1 (I have three coats of Sea Star on my nails, it’s a sheer color so I wanted a more intense look.)

 


As promised here is the results (photo below) of 10 days of wear with Phenom – as you can see I circled the growth at the cuticle but not one chip or peel of this amazing polish.  And I truly put it to the test for 10 days cleaning, typing for hours each day on the keyboard and really not taking care of my nails (wearing gloves in water) like I normally would.  I wanted to see how it would hold up under harsh conditions and as you can see if passed with flying colors.  Yes there is some very very slight wear at the free edge (tips) of my nails but that’s to be expected after 10 full days.

 

Contest has ended.  Thank you!

Jessica Nail Polish and Gel Polish Review and Giveaway!

Disclosure: I received a sample (as described below) to conduct my review for this blog post.  All opinions stated in this post are truthful and mine alone.  Receiving a sample(s) of this product in no way influenced my opinion in this review.

 

As a licensed manicurists I have the ability to choose any polish or gel polish brand or brands on the market today.  If you ask any manicurist I am sure they will tell you we all have our favorite brands, colors, applications, etc.

I have been in this industry for 15 years and have tried almost every brand of polish from the designer high end most expensive ones to the drug store brands and I have my favorites for several reasons.

I will tell you that the cheaper the polish the less effective they will be in lasting on your nails but that doesn’t mean you have to spend $25 on a bottle of designer polish to get great results.  That’s why I love the complete line of JESSICA products they are reasonably priced.

I evaluate a polish by the following criteria:

  1. Ease of applications
  2. How long it lasts
  3. Selection of colors available

Over the years I really haven’t changed my opinions of my favorite brands and JESSICA is on the top of my list.

They are at the cutting edge of trend colors, their polish is reasonably priced and lasts up to 14 days depending on whether or not you take care of your manicure.

Now there are many factor’s that will effect your polish condition as the days go on but if you take care and pamper your hands you can get up to two weeks out of a good professional nail polish.

I always recommend using rubber gloves when your nails are polished to do household chores.  Chemicals and water will reek havoc on your polish and manicure.  I know many people do not like to wear them but it is really important to protect not just your manicure but your hands in general from harsh chemicals.

JESSICA brand polish, gel polishes and treatments can be found on their website at www.jessicacosmetics.com

With 250 classic and trend-setting shades, and a variety of finishes in Creme, Frost, Glitter, High Shine, Metallic, Matte, Opalescent, and Sheer you are going to find something you LOVE!

All JESSICA polishes are 7-Free: No Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, DBP, Camphor, Xylene or Ethyl Tosylamide – cheap drug store brands many still continue these harmful chemicals that can cause cancer.

This is one of the newest collections from JESSICA called “Indie Fest” and the colors are amazing.

I choose “Desert Sun” to show you as it doesn’t do the color justice in the box.  It’s a beautiful golden brown with miniature gold flecks – just beautiful!

 

To purchase the IndyFest collection or any other JESSICA brand product go to www.jessicacosmetics.com
