What top coat/base coat do you use?

– I don’t have a favorite topcoat, usually I use the INM Out The Door (can be found at Sally’s Beauty Supply) for swatches and the HK Girl from Glisten & Glow for manicures. My all time favorite base coat the CND Stickey. You can find that on Amazon.com or at Ulta stores.

Why do you take your picture and video swatches separately?

– Since my lighting, camera settings, and tripod all have to be adjusted when switching from pictures to video, its faster, and helps keep the lighting more consistent, if I batch process all the pictures at once and then all the videos at another time. It also helps me get a feel for how to work with the polish if I do my pictures before the video.

How long do you let your nail polish dry between coats?

– I wait until a coat is completely dry to the touch before adding another one. The time it takes for that to happen varies from polish to polish, but usually is around 3-5 minutes.

How long do swatch videos take you to make?

– To take pictures, film, edit, and upload, it takes between 8-12 hours depending on the size of the collection.


– I purposely avoid the sides of my nails and my cuticle line when I’m swatching because I do swatches one after the other after the other. Removing polishes that are applied too close to the skin can stain the skin around my nails and make the next swatch look bad. I do it to keep the video clips and pictures clean.

Why don’t you use a peel-off base coat when you swatch? You should use the UNT one because Simplynailogical uses it and everyone should use everything she uses with no exceptions.

– I speed swatch. The polish is still wet or tacky by the time I remove it to apply the next one. Using a peel-off base coat would not only add an extra step to my routine, but would require me to wait for the polish to dry before it could be peeled off. This would end up taking more time and be less efficient for me.
Trust me, if Cristine suggests it, I try it…but everyone has different taste in products and everyone does things differently. Two people can have vastly different opinions on a product. It doesn’t mean that one of them is wrong, it means that they’re different people.

Are you going to swatch the Essie/OPI/China Glaze _ collection?

– Yes.

FTC: Some of the polishes shown were sent to me for review


Kim Thornton says:

Hey Jess, did you know that Sally’s came out with 3 exclusive polishes to this collection? I picked up 2 out of 3 yesterday… they are beautiful 🙂

Rachel Small says:



I LOVEEEEE YOUR SWATCHES AND REVIEWS!!! i love to use them as reference when i buy polishes so thank you so much for your videos

Cara Eskins says:

The yellow looks like the crayon “macaroni and cheese” on camera after its dry..

ALSwellkept says:

Girl…you’ve been pulling yourself together very nicely in these videos lately. Your hair looks gorgeous.

Stacy P says:

Those neons are gorgeous!

Gina Rose says:

I really liked No turning back from pink street, it was def my favorite. Tyfs

Susan Gilchrist says:

Maybe a dumb question, but why do you paint your nails a second time to take the pictures? In other words, why don’t you take the pictures immediately after painting them for the swatching video?

need now musen now you dont

Seriously Lacqueing says:

Damn OPI is on top of it this year super early to the Spring/Summer game, kind of loving “Closer Than You Might Belem” it is so gorgeous perfect aquamarine color.

Maliyah James says:

I LOVEEE a A Red Vival City and Title Art to Warm Your Heart

Lori Reece says:

I’m rocking the Tile Art…, and I love it! It really pops!

flautist666 says:

Ugh why do I always like the Ulta exclusives when I know I can’t get them! Thanks for the review, it’s made me decide on a few that I wasn’t fully sold on.

jessFACE90 says:

You’ll see some disparity between the color in the video vs. the swatch photo. Always trust the photo! I adjusted the video to the best of my ability (it’s usually Kyle’s job) and some of the brighter colors still weren’t matching up.

Also keep in mind that everyone’s phone and computer screens show color differently. It’s always best to look up swatches from a few different swatchers if you’re unsure about a color 🙂

Bethany Rosier says:

Am I the only one that is really disappointed with this collection? I feel like I already have all these colours, nothing really special in my opinion.

Tara Esielionis says:

Great review! I really like this collection! Also, the blonde ombre looks super pretty on you!

Destiny Schlegel says:

Ahhhh good old Pacific Blue!!! ❤️ Do you know of any dupes for that polish?!?!

Karen Erwin says:

Your hair & makeup are gorgeous! Well…you are gorgeous! I love your videos. You are always so helpful, informative & have a great personality. Your opinion helps me decide which polishes to purchase. I really don’t NEED any more polishes, but what can I say? I’m a nail polish addict & have been obsessed with polishing my nails since I was 4-5 years old. I’m now 43. Lol Sounds crazy, but it’s true!

jazy 686 says:

i always thought the opis that look like that where fake..just getting into opi and only buy them at drugstores…i guess its a new look?

Mineminemine says:

Great video, as always. I’m kind of disappointed about this collection. I liked the blue one, but I already have so many blues. Also liked the Ulta Raven shade, but not enough to get off my butt and go to Ulta. The other colors seemed blah to me. I think China Glaze will be more of a WOW.

Catie says:

Oh nooo I just realized I bought the infinate shine version of Sun, Sea and Sand in my Pants. I hope it’s as decent of a formula.

Kat Sprauer says:

You are AWESOME! I will definitely buy some—or maybe all of the wares depicted. I didn’t think I’d want them all until I saw them!

Cecile Estelle says:

Someone help me out! I just went to polishpick.com and could only find the XOXO collection…nothing from the Lisbon collection.

melissafromri says:

Your videos are so helpful. Thanks so much! Is it just me or are all these colors pretty generic?

Shayla Nguyen says:

im wearing Lisbon wants moor and its so pretty :)))

Ines Božić says:

Tile art to warm yor heart…I think I need one!

Lynette Michele says:

Tagus In That Selfie is beautiful! 🙂

Maryam Khalil says:

valerie melo says:

-Lisbonnnnnnn 🙂
I’m from the Azores and so happy to see some portuguese love! Great vid!

Darcie Williams says:

ugh i wish opi was cruelty free, i love that color closer than you might belem

BillytheBrime says:

Sally Beauty also has 3 exclusive polishes. I don’t know if they’re available in stores or if they are just online. They are “I Absolutely Amador-ya”, “Set Apart by Tile Art”, and “Hittin’ the Portuguese Pavement”.

Valerie Berry says:

What eye shadow are you wearing on your lids? Very pretty and flattering!
