JENsations Smoke n Ashes

Good morning, ladies.

I'm excited to show you a new-to-me indie brand with the cutest bottles ever.  JENsations, Etsy-sold polishes created by -- you guess it -- Jen, is a brand of really cool top coat glitters and effects housed in star shaped glass shells...which can't help but put a smile on your face when you see it.

But this polish isn't all superficial smoke and mirrors.  In fact, Smoke n Ashes is one of the chicest top coats I have ever tried in my polishing history.  A charcoal base of purple and gold flakies, I chose to layer two coats of Smoke n Ashes over SpaRitual A World of Compassion.  I thought the dusty cornflower blue creme would only serve to complement the smoky, slightly holo flakies, and boy did it.  

Take a look.



From far away, Smoke n Ashes darkens the base and appears to be a dusting of charcoal loveliness, but up close you can really tell how the simple nuance of the multi-toned flakies create an absolutely winter-appropriate mani.  

I'd also like to note that this topcoat made my mani almost indestructible.  I wore this on a weekend where I banged into about everything humanly possible (I'm a walking mess most of the time) and this baby stayed put.  Nicely done, Jen, nicely done.

JENsations polishes are available on Etsy and retail for $8 a bottle.  Please click here to be directed to the shop.
