Jinsoon x Tila March Collection With Swatches

| , ,

Leave it to Jinsoon to make nail colors for spring that embody the entire essence of the season. I mean would you look at all those vibrant shades?! I have long been a fan of Jinsoon polishes and find they are some of the best in my entire collection. (Read all of my past reviews here.) The shine, the immediate drying time, the long lasting formula – it’s light years ahead of most of the other polishes that I’ve used.
Her recent collaboration with Tila March is full of intense hues balanced with the most perfect milky nude shade. The five shades are Tila (green), Farouche (pink), Enflammee (orange), Charme (bright yellow) and Doux (nude). I myself was instantly drawn to Doux and Enflammee – they seemed so opposite but so perfect for spring. The brush is quite thin as you can see from the above photo, and is very manageable when using. I am not the best at doing my own nails, but I find I can manage applying Jinsoon polishes quite well myself.
Tila, Farouche and Enflammee went on evenly with two even coats. Charme and Doux needed a bit more of a steady hand and worked better with three very thin coats to give a nice opaque finish. From first swipe, Farouche and Enflammee had a slight jelly finish to them with one coat, but after the second coat became creamy and opaque which I prefer.
Jinsoon polishes out of all my nail polishes dry the fastest and have incredible long wear times – usually 4-5 days for me with minimal chipping. That being said, I still swear by my Formula X system and will never paint my nails without it again because of how well it extends the length of my manicures. But even without the Formula X, these polishes have serious staying power.

Shop some other Jinsoon shades for spring:

JINsoon x Tess Giberson Collection With Swatches

JINsoon x Tess Giberson swatches
My JINsoon collection is now beginning to reach epic proportions. Every time she comes out with a new seasonal launch or collaboration (remember this one from last year?), I am compelled to try them all, and this new JINsoon x Tess Giberson collection is no exception. I am not going to lie and say that I am not wooed by the shiny and sparkly bottles of Chanel, Dior and Tom Ford, but frankly when it comes down to wearability, these polishes are truly some of the best around. They dry immediately and last the longest out of my entire collection of nail polishes (and I have A LOT of polishes – ooooops).

I definitely had my favorites from this launch, with my initial stand out being Heirloom, the metallic teal. It’s so different and quite a conversation piece when on the nails. Melange is a chunky glitter polish that you will need extra time to remove, but the color is a muted metallic which is a nice change from those liquid metal style shades that are often too reflective for day. Farrago is probably one of the most unique colors and blends a deep aubergine with very fine gold reflective particles. I feel like this will be in contention with Nocturne for the shades I will wear the most. I love Nocturne because it is not as severe as a standard black polish, and has some dimension with it’s silver metallic shine and deep concrete gray base. Pastiche is the color that will probably take me into the warmer months and could be worn all year.

Another winning collection from JINsoon, and as usual her polishes continue to wow me with their quality and long wear. If you are looking to add some additional JINsoon shades to your collection, I highly recommend Coral Peony and Blue Iris from her Botanical Flowers collection, Azurite and Epidote from her JINsoon x Tibi collection as well as her entire Color Field Collection.
