Jesse's Girl Julie G Nail Polish

I don't show other brands of nail polishes here often unless it is something I absolutely love (for obvious reasons) and feel I can recommend to you. So this is one of those polishes. When Jesse's Girl took us out at CosmoProf, I had the pleasure of sitting next to JulieG of Youtube fame herself. Her nails are amazing! She has the exact nails I wish I always had! Long skinny nailbeds with the perfect curve to them. But to make them more amazing looking was her amazing polish. I had to ask her what it was - she quickly responded that it was Jesse's Girl Julie G. Yup they named a polish after her! Pretty cool. Anyway at first it seems like a basic, but it just looked amazing on her. I knew I had to get it!
This is an cantaloupe colored polish with a hint of pink. I put it next to a cantaloupe colored candle so you can see how it compares.

Jesse's Girl Nail Polish retails for $2.99 and can be found at Rite Aid or on www.Jessesgirlcosmetics.com. I found that I needed three coats for this color.  If I was the patient kind and let coats dry in between applications, I think I could have achieved perfect coverage with just two coats. But outside of that I am very happy with the polish and I would definitely buy more. You definitely can't beat it for the price. I also didn't clean this manicure up. I was too lazy. It actually looks a lot better in person - darn macro lens!
I had a tough time capturing how this color really looks. I wish it looked like this in person. It is a lot brighter in person.

Unfortunately the color doesn't look as good on me as it does on Julie G. For me I would like this just a bit darker and a little less bright. But at the same time I am loving it and can't stop staring at my nails. My kids already started school, so it feels like Fall in everything we are doing, but it's 95+ degrees out everyday, so it feels like Summer too (Which it totally still is here). So this is a perfect color to keep the summer going. I highly suggest you get on over to Jesse's Girl and get this polish and perhaps a few eyeshadows while your at it. I am really enjoying this brand. (Better yet, save your money and get our upcoming Fall polishes which will be available any day now, and then buy this polish with whatever you have left over! LOL)
In some lighting it takes on a more orange hue, while in other lights it looks like a bright pinkish orange. But no matter what when I take a picture it comes out either vibrant pink or dull cantaloupe. 

Julie G showed me some swatches of her upcoming line within Jesse's Girl Cosmetics that will be releasing in the next few weeks. If I remember correctly there are 6 - 8 colors coming out. I will definitely be supporting her and Jesse's Cosmetics buying all of her colors.
