Happy Saturday! In this post, I'm going to show you two stunning polishes that are my picks from Jessica's Fall 2012 collection. I bring you Pumpkin Delight and Gingersnap, both of which take glass-flecked finishes to new heights of gorgeousness.
First up, Gingersnap. This polish is a combination of brown-bronze, gold, and silver flecks that come together to give an overall golden-brown effect:

Next up, Pumpkin Delight. This one is a blend of orange, bronze, and gold flakes, that give a stunning fall feel:

In the shade, inside, in indirect light, the gold flecks meld together to create a textured, deep, intense feel. Then, when you take the polishes into the sun--they light up like they're on fire, sparkle like crushed gems, and shine like molten metal. Many polishes are either stunning in the sun or in indirect light--few polishes can do both. These two just have magic.
Both polishes applied like a dream--perfect consistency, no problem. I've already used Pumpkin Delight for a Halloween manicure, and will certainly use it for fall manicures. And Gingersnap? Such a gorgeous color for the Christmas holiday season. Or just anytime, really.
I admit I'm biased in favor of glass-fleck finishes, sure. But these go beyond anything I've seen before, and I can't wait for more more more more like this! Excellent job, Jessica--keep them coming. :)
Thanks for looking. :)
