Collection: Essie Winter 2014
Notwithstanding the terrible, terrible name, Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Lo (hereafter JHJL) is the best metallic I’ve tried in a long time.
I recently picked up the mini for CA$2.49 (hard to resist the minis at low prices!) and I’m very slightly tempted to go looking for the full-sized version!
JHJL is described by Essie as a “molten gold”. To me, it’s more of a cross between gold and silver, resulting in a quite unique color. Its finish is even a bit different, as the shimmer is really fine, leaving the finish metallic, yet smooth and glowy. I generally don’t like metallics that are too in-your-face and chrome-like. JHJL, to me, has a perfect metallic finish, and its mix of two metal tones makes it very easy to pair with other colors.
Application was great, as usual for Essie. Two coats provided full opacity and even coverage.
Essie Nail Polish retails for US$8.50 / CA$9.99–$10.99 and is 0.46 US fl oz / 13.5 mL. I purchased my mini (0.16 US fl oz / 5 mL) for CA$2.49. The polish is free of toluene, formaldehyde, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). It is made in the USA.
Essie Cosmetics, founded in 1981, is based in Westfield NJ, USA. In 2010, Essie was acquired by the L’Oréal Group.
