Today I am reviewing the Jessica Cosmetics Heavy Petal collection for Spring 2012. I am SUPER excited to be showing you this 6 piece collection, so lets get started shall we?
Born 2 Pansy is very light lilac with duochrome blue and green shimmer. The formula on this was pretty good, at first it was a bit sheer, but I think it looks great after three coats. I love this one, I don’t have anything like it!
Witchy Wisteria is a red leaning purple with gold shimmer. This is something that we have seen before in colors like Zoya Tru and OPI Dutch Ya Just Love OPI, but if you don’t have either of those, this is a great choice! Formula was nice and easy, opaque in two coats.
Geranium Gypsy is a light purple frost. I was expecting application on this to be a nightmare like all other frosts, but it wasn’t too terrible! When applying frosts it is easier to paint the sides first and then down the middle of the nail last to minimize brush strokes. I really like the color of this, but I would prefer a shimmer or cream finish. Two coats for full opacity.
Rolling Rose is a light baby pink with the same duochrome shimmer that we saw in Born 2 Pansy. Formula was the same as B2P and it looked really nice in three coats. Very pretty! I wish I still had my Nicole by OPI Kim-pletely In Love (I gave it away) because I feel like that may be pretty close to this.
Hotter than Hibiscus has the same frosty finish as Geranium Gypsy. The formula was pretty nice to work with, I would just personally prefer a creme or shimmer finish, but those of you who like frosts, this is a really nice color, I think it would flatter most skin tones. Two coats.
Dazed Dahlia is a pretty berry creme with a super shiny finish. Formula on this one was outstanding, I only needed one coat for full opacity, we all love one coaters!
So that wraps up the Heavy Petal collection! What do you guys think? Which ones will you be picking up? My must haves are Born 2 Pansy and Rolling Rose, that shimmer is just so pretty!
