I really plan to use this blog as my home base, so unlike other blogs that are orientated towards the readership, which of course I want that too, I might have posts like this one. Which is a bookmark for me and a reminder of why I want the bookmark in the first place! lol
At the moment, I plan on having the focus of this blog on budget beauty products, but lately I’ve been mostly obsessed with nail polish. While cruising around the nail blogs I come across brands I would like to try, but I’m cheap and don’t have much money, so I have to do a little research to find those brands at better prices.
One brand that universally gets high marks and nail bloggers rave about is Jessica… well, once they discover it. There are some brands that are just harder to come by, if you don’t know about it, you can’t give it high marks! Jessica sells for $7.50 at their website. I know, now you’re saying, she really is cheap! Yes, I don’t like to pay any more than $5 for a polish, and much prefer the brands that sell for $3 or less. I am that cheap.
One of my regular stops while drooling over polish is Body & Soul, and it’s there that Mary mentioned that she sometimes buys Jessica at Hello, Gorgeous! That’s my bookmark, when I get a few dollars together I’d like to make a little Jessica haul from Hello, Gorgeous! where they are almost always on sale for only $4.95 each with flat rate shipping also set at $4.95.
All the links to Jessica are set to the part of the website that shows the nail colors in the bottle. It seems to me that these are the closest true to life representations of the colors, but you can also check them out in little swatch blobs. I’d also suggest just going to different nail blogs or google to see some swatches on nails. But as I said, this brand isn’t the best known, and you might miss out on a color that is perfect for you since there aren’t swatches of it on a blog or in google. That’s when you take a chance on the bottle or blob swatches at the Jessica Cosmetics site.
