Jessica Fall 2012 Spicy Dreams Collection Swatches and Review PLUS a Giveaway!

Good morning my fellow Lacquered Lovers!  Happy Monday!  I'm celebrating my day off of work today by setting up some fun posts, doing swatches, all sorts of nail polish related goodies in preparation for Fashion Week!  Today, I have the new Fall collection by Jessica Cosmetics called Spicy Dreams to show you!

This collection is full of rich browns and reds that are perfect for Fall!  Now, without further ado, on to the polish!

Above:  2 coats of Brown Sugar

Brown Sugar is a gorgeous milk chocolate brown with a silver shimmer running through it.  It's such a rich, vibrant shade for Fall!  I love how the brown has some red to it that really makes it look decadent!  The shimmer is definitely hidden, it comes out in direct light but in indirect light it just looks like a rich brown without the shimmer. The formula is great, a little bit thick but easy to work with and opaque in 2 coats.

Above:  2 coats of Champagne Bubbles

Champagne Bubbles appears to be gold, silver and light gold tiny micro glitter all mixed together!  It's so fine that it almost looks like a foil on first glance but as you can see on the top picture, it's definitely a glitter.  This shade is really unique and complex.  The formula was great, easy to use and opaque in 2 coats.

Above:  2 coats of Cinnamon Kiss

As many of you now, I love colors that are blackened and have a shimmer that make them glow from within and Cinnamon Kiss fits that perfectly!  The base of Cinnamon Kiss is a blackened red and it's full of beautiful red shimmer.  Truly a gorgeous shade.  The formula was fantastic, easy to use and opaque in 2 coats!

Above:  2 coats of Crimson Tattoo

Crimson Tattoo is a gorgeous vampy blackened red jelly polish.  This is one of those dried blood looking shades that I love for Fall!  It truly almost looks black not in direct lighting but around the edges you can tell that it's red.  The formula was a bit thick so it's best to wait a few minutes between coats so there is no dragging.

Above:  2 coats of Gingersnap

Gingersnap is amazing.  This is a beautiful gold/red duo chrome that looks like a foil like Champagne Bubbles but is actually very fine micro glitter.  The red and gold in this shade make it look like a warm gold with flashes of red that's just stunning and very unique.  The formula was great opaque in 2 coats and simply stunning!

Above:  2 coats of Pumpkin Delight

Last but certainly not least is Pumpkin Delight, which is the same type of tiny glitter as Champagne Bubbles.  The glitters in Pumpkin Delight are more orange, red and bronze and it gives off flashes of gold as well.  Absolutely gorgeous!  The formula was great, opaque in 2 coats and easy to use.

All in all, this is a gorgeous Fall collection.  The colors are rich and vibrant, the glittery ones are unique and all had pretty great formulas!  These polishes should be available now wherever Jessica cosmetics are sold.  But, there's more!

Due to a shipping fluke, I have two versions of this collection and Jessica's PR is graciously letting me hold a giveaway for the entire collection to one lucky winner!  This giveaway will be open internationally, just fill out the form below and good luck!
