Jessica Iridescent Eye
Behold! The fruits of my uh... venture into a shady little nail supply store. I have never seen Jessica polishes in person before, so I was really excited to this very full display a few weeks ago. In the very bottom row, I spotted Jessica Iridescent Eye, Chanel Peridot's doppelgänger. I wasn't willing to shell out a ton of money for a Chanel polish, but I very happily forked over three dollars for Iridescent Eye.
The first time I wore it, I wasn't happy with how streaky it looked. I mean, it wasn't as bad as a frost but the gleaming polish made me feel like I had done a horrible application. The second time I wore it (these photographs) I used Nfu Oh Aqua Base and was much more pleased with the results. I'm fascinated by how utterly duochrome-y and vividly bright it is.
Crackle... I'm so over it. I literally have not used crackle polish since the trend first exploded. However, it looks mighty nifty over Jessica Iridescent Eye. Here, I'm using Barry M Instant Nail Effects.
What do you think of this color? Do you own Chanel Peridot, Jessica Iridescent Eye or any of this color's reincarnations?
