Jessie's Girl Cosmetics JulieG 9 to 5 Review/Swatches

Happy Friday! When I saw Thuy from The Painted Ninja post swatches of JulieG 9 to 5, I knew I had to have it.  There was one thing standing in my way...we don't have Rite Aids near me:(  I made a sad little comment under her post saying "I wish we had Jessie's Girl around me".  Thuy ended up emailing me asking if she could send me a few...I happily accepted her offer ;)
As Thuy mentioned in her review, 9 to 5 is pretty streaky.  Like her, I had to apply three coats and I can still see some unevenness in person.  Despite the annoying application, it's such a pretty color.  It's so bright and fun on the nails.  My nails really stand out and like Thuy said, it makes you look tan...bonus!  
9 to 5 reminds me of Essie Van D' Go (wow, scary swatch...that was pretty early on in my blogging career...eeek), but I think Van D' Go is a little more pink (it's also very streaky).  Perhaps I will do a little comparison using all of my peach polishes.  Oh, Lime Crime Peaches <3 Cream may be close as well, but it looks a bit more orange.  
If you are looking for a bright peach polish...and you have a Rite Aid near you, I would recommend this one.  Yes, the formula could be better, but the little extra work that it requires is worth it...to me, at least:)

A big thank you to Thuy for sending this to me - along with the other two beauties!

  12. Hi Essie - peach and you - a perfect match!!! It looks wonderful on you and while the Lime Crime is certainly more into the face, this one has a liveliness that has a lot more elegance and sophistication without going for "thin lips" if you know what I mean!!! I ALWAYS experience the same issues with peach colored polishes (grrrr) but I usually apply two coats of a thick base coat and can eliminate like 3/4 of the streakiness - at least it helps getting the second coat on even - maybe this might be of help??? Have a lovely Saturday :-)

    1. yeah, I don't use a base coat at all, perhaps I should try a few coats and see what happens. I also heard that it works to do one coat of polish and then a matte top coat and then another coat of polish. I should really try that too. Thanks for your comment Christine!

  13. This is so loverly on you (nod to Emily/My Fair Lady)! It's such a pretty and wearable shade. Peaches skeer me a little. I've learned to embrace them in blush form but I'm just not sure how they'd pan out on my nailses... this looks like a good one to try, though, and I do have a Rite Aid close by :D

  17. Love this color!! Revlon ColorStay "Peaches and Cream" is another peach color that I fell in love with. It's a bit bright but so gorgeous and the formula was actually really nice for being a cheap-ish brand. :) Love your blog! --Patricia
