NOTD: Jess - Swan Lake

Dealz opened in my town a few months ago and it's been the best thing to happen to us in a very long time! Besides the cheap stationary, junk food and household products, they sell makeup.
I hit up the Rimmel section straight away but I overlooked the little pots of Jess nail polishes along the queue to the checkout.
Thankfully, my mom picked one up for me and I'm so glad she did.

The first thing that strikes me about this polish is how similar it is to my beloved Barry M Blueberry.

This polish takes two coats to get full opacity. It dries quickly and stays on until you decide to take it off. Seriously, I've gone a full week with this on my nails and not a single chip. It applies streak free and has a nice shiny finish.

The brush is small and thin, similar to Barry M actually. I really like it as it isn't too big for my nails like some brushes.

Lets address the elephant in the room, I cut my nails and they are TINY. They're just too weak to keep at the length I like so I decided to cut them down, take care of them and try to grow them back out with the hopes that they'll be stronger.

To help with that, I used Nail HQ All in One with Argan Oil* as a basecoat.

I'm hoping this will work it's magic and make my nails stronger and less likely to snap when hit with a strong gust of wind. It applies clear despite it looking green in the bottle. I'll continue to use this and get back with my thoughts on it.

Let me know if you've tried any of the Jess nail polishes or if there's any other bargain beauty bits I'm overlooking! 

Thanks for reading! :)
