Greens for March: Jessica's Envy

Here's a polish I've had for too long and realize I hadn't blogged it. Worse, or best(?) I have a dupe!

Jessica Divine Pine

Three coats, no top coat. Shine on! Note please that my photo is blown out a bit to show the yellow undertone, it's darker than this normally.

This polish has secret shimmer, but it's super hard to see. It also doesn't have a uniform creamy formula, the particles are larger, like they are in a suspension (well duh) but the first coat shows more of this, and the overall effect is that it gives it a "foamy" feeling rather than a straight creme finish. This lightens the polish up, more light moves through it and it's less dense than a standard creme.

It's warm, it's a yellow green that's been crushed down into the vamp zone. Kid yourself not, it will go black under much lighting.

I compared it to Zoya Envy and guess what? Yup....

I would say that Zoya is a slight bit deeper, though not by much. The more I look at the photo the less I can really tell them apart. 

I've blogged Zoya Envy a couple of times before and formula-wise, I'd say they were about the same. 

Jessica is readily available online. I found mine on their website quite some time ago when I first saw this polish on Scrangie's site. 

If you like shades like this, but want something a little more luminous than Zoya Envy, this polish I do recommend. Though Zoya works the sales quite often, I've noticed (at least this year) they limit promotions to polishes they want to promote, rather than people like who have long wish lists and a tight budget. 

Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. This is a very specific shade of green I don't think I'd ever wear for full mani, I just don't do a lot of green...but it would be great for nail art (like Christmas especially)...

    1. I think it is a very warm, vampy green, yet I think it is pretty gorgeous.
