GELATO MIO! by Jessica Cosmetics


A collection of nail colours that celebrate summer!

Jessica Vartoughian, known as the "First Lady of Nails", founded Jessica Cosmetics in 1969.  The Gelato Mio Collection is composed of 6 gorgeous pastel colors to celebrate summer.  It makes me think of ice cream and cupcakes. 

The colors are very creamy, smooth to apply and fast drying

(From left to right) Banana Peel, Strawberry Shake It, Tangerine Dreamz, Surfer Boyz & Berry, Barely Blueberry

And last but certainty not least Lime Cooler (above).

Stamps very nicely as well (sorry for the bad picture)

This is Banana Peel with a lemon wedge for a summer afternoon =) 

I don't only like to show you how good a nail polish looks when it is first applied but also, how I experience its durability.  These pictures were taken four days after application and no special considerations to my mani have been taken into account.  I did everything I would normally do.  No chips, no peels, just minor fading on the tip (most noticeable on the middle finger) which happens with ALL polish as I work with my hands and handle an enormous amount of paperwork and am on the computer keyboard ALL DAY-EVERYDAY.  (you get used to typing with long nails but nail polish doesnt) 

Also, I usually have a favorite from every collection that I get to try, however, I could not pick one.  They are all lovely.  This is a collection I can use throughout the year and for nail art.

Banana Peel perfectly matched my greeting card stickers EEEP!!
