I was recently gifted some polishes (and lipsticks) from a new to me brand: Jay Godfrey. Since I love trying out new polishes, I couldn’t wait to put these on my fingers! The 5 polishes come in a collection paired with 5 complimentary lipsticks ranging from a soft mauve-y pink to a deep Raspberry.
To try out these polishes, I decided to pair them together in a fun sideways dry brush (one of my favourite designs). ❤ this also would have been a great manicure and polish set for Valentine’s Day!
- Jay Godfrey Cosmetics Nude 256
- Jay Godfrey Cosmetics Orchid Violet 185
- Jay Godfrey Cosmetics Nior 421
- Jay Godfrey Cosmetics Rouge 132
- Jay Godfrey Cosmetics Bordeaux Lust 326
- Butter London Hardwear Quick Dry Top Coat
To achieve this look, I started with a base of 2 coats of Nude, and then applied top coat and let it dry for about 5 minutes. I then went with each colour, removing as much polish from the brush as I could before brushing it diagonally against my base colour. I tried to alternate darker polishes with lighter colours to create a nice texture to the look. When I was happy with the design, I sealed everything in with two coats of top coat.
So what do you think of these colours and design? I always have fun when I discover new polishes, and really quite like the formula on these, not to mention the colours.
I’m also really excited to test out the complimentary lipsticks! So far I’ve only worn one of the lipsticks, a fuchsia pink named Casablanca, and I really liked how it looked and applied. I can’t wait to try out all the colours! I think I’ll do a whole post dedicated to the lipsticks since I’m really quite in love with them. ❤
