Jessica Cosmetics Effects Glitzy Collection



To add some sparkle to this falls's dramatic jewel tone palette, Jessica has also released a collection of glitter top coats.  Take a look at Effects Glitzy, where even a glitterphobe like myself can find something to love!  Every glitter is just one coat over its base mani and all applied evenly with no need to dab or forcibly place the glitter pieces.

Bling in Black
over Opening Night
Black and white matte glitter is everywhere this season so it makes sense that this salt and pepper topper make an appearance here.  What I particularly love about Bling in Black is that the matte glitter is all the same size, giving a really nice uniform, yet dramatic, look to any manicure.

Star Spangles
over Overture
A sparkly mix of red, white, and blue hex glitter in a clear base, Star Spangles is instant Fourth of July.  Super metallic, I can see this being used to no end next July 4.  Although maybe not over an orange base, like I used above.  I thought the red glitter would bring out the red undertones in Overture, which it evidently did not...oops.

Glam It Up
over Prima Donna
I must admire, Glam It Up was actually the one surprising disappointment in the bunch.  In the bottle, this violet and silver hex glitter mix is absolutely gorgeous and I had such high hopes layering it over the stunning Prima Donna.  Unfortunately, Glam It Up just got lost over the purple base mani and just looked rather messy when it was finished.  This may look worlds better over black without another color to compete with.

Razzle Dazzle
over Blue Aria
As surprisingly disappointed I was in Glam It Up, I was just as surprisingly pleased with Razzle Dazzle.  Not a fan of bar glitter, I didn't expect much from this blue and silver mix of hex and bar pieces.  However since this glitter is also holographic, I loved how it absolutely glowed over the murky navy base.  A real win in my book!

Sparkles
over Standing Ovation
Ah, to my favorite!  A fantastically gorgeous array of holographic shimmer and opalescent hex glitter in a sheer green base jelly, once I layered this over Standing Ovation I never wanted to take it off!  I can see myself having a lot of fun with Sparkles, especially over black or white creme bases.

Sizzle
over Velvet & Pearls
And to conclude, we have my second favorite.  Sizzle is a mix of ruby red hex and microglitter and while nothing particularly unique, is happily bright enough to dazzle over such a dark base coat without looking cheap or trying too hard. In fact, what I love most about Sizzle is that is actually looks like it was part of the black polish to begin with.  To me, that's layering gold.
