Jesse's Girl Julie G Spring Trio Sets 1 and 2

*press samples*

Hi guys! It's Dancing With the Stars night, and I've been following it this season. Do you watch? Do you have any favorites? I have some extra special things I want to put up this week, so I thought I should get an early start. I have 3 different sets from Julie G (Jesse's Girl) to show you, and you get 3 polishes for $10 on their website. Each polish normally retails for $3.99 so you'll be saving a couple bucks buying the trio. Stay to end of the post for your chance to win a set directly from Jesse's Girl. All of the trios have one thing in common: neons! Well, some of them aren't true neons, but are on the verge of being one. I started this post yesterday, but I thought it would be helpful to see how the pinks and purples compare to each other so I put the first 2 sets together. Shall we see how they stack up?

Set 1

Julie G Bikini (3 coats)

Oh man, a good neon coral crème will always call my name. I think this will look even better after I get a little sun (hey, it's still spring). All of these were a little hard to capture because neons are notorious for making cameras go wonky. Bikini had just enough orange in it to be a coral and not just pink. It was a bit sheerer than the others and needed 3 coats for full coverage. The first 2 coats were a little streaky, but built up well with the third.  It ended up drying to a satin finish from the neon pigments so you may want to add a topcoat. The satin finish is fine, but I personally liked the look with a shiny topcoat best.

Julie G Dream in Pretty (2 coats)

Up next is Dream in Pretty which is a lilac crème with pink undertones. I currently have a lilac bush growing in my backyard, so I should have taken a picture of it for this post. Maybe next time! This one isn't quite a neon or a pastel...and just perfect for me! It had a smooth formula and application in 2 coats (and didn't dry with a satin finish).

Julie G Tropical (2 coats)

The last polish from Set 1 is Tropical which is a bright mint/seafoam green. Some people see this as more of a turquoise, but it looks more green to me. I really like this lush green color. This one also dries to a satin finish, so have your topcoat handy. This is 2 thicker coats with topcoat.

Set 2

Julie G Julie's Fave (3 coats)

You can see some similarities between Bikini and Julie's Fave, but Bikini is brighter and has more orange tones. Julie's Fave is a medium pink crème with some dustiness to it. It applied better than Bikini and only needed 2 coats (without the streakiness) for full opacity.

Julie G Rio de Janiero (2 coats)

Rio de Janiero is a raspberry magenta crème which is deeper and more saturated than Dream in Pretty. I think this looks better with my skintone, but both purples are beautiful. I had no problems with the formula or application and it just needed 2 coats for full coverage.

Julie G Santorini (2 coats)

Oh man, we finally got a shimmer in here! It's faint for sure, but it's definitely there. In case you didn't know, Santorini is a Greek island known for its beautiful scenery and volcanoes. The polish is a sky blue with pearly silver shimmer. It reminds me a little of something Essie would put out, you know what I mean? I used 2 thicker coats for the photos, and I had no issues with the formula.

You can find both trios on the Jesse's Girl website here. Don't forget, these trios are $10 and are only available on their website.
