Jackie O’s
Fashion icon, socialite and world traveler. She always the topic of discussion. Love her or hate her, you just can’t get her out of your head. You can always find her on the dance floor at Jackie O’s.

This is a vampy black with silver sparks. It reminds me of Orly Goth. The formula is great.

John Russo Margate

Staying out until 3 a.m., dancing until your feet hurt and loving every second of it. Margate is synonymous with Party.

Beautiful metallic yellow gold. Sheer in one coat but great in two. This was the sheerest of all the polishes that I tried.

To me, this is an orchid pinky violet (slightly deeper than how it looks here). The formula on this one is great and you can get away with one coat.

John Russo Jackie O's and Oh My Gosh

My Thoughts
I found the formula on all of these polishes to be easy to work with and exceptionally smooth. Jackie O’s is a shade that I haven’t ran into in a while, a teal blue with silver. Usually you see teal blue with gold. Oh My Gosh is awesome; perfect for nail art! I love Princessa, as it’s a nice light aqua shade without being too pale or streaky. Be That Girl is dazzling, especially with a top coat. Margate is a yellow-toned metallic gold that would look luxe on your tips. Little Fagie is a knockout shade that if you love that color you will love love the formula.

Jackie O’s and Oh My Gosh are tied for my favorites of the polishes that I tried. I’m envisioning some cool chevron nail art with Princessa, Jackie O’s and Oh My Gosh.

If you’re looking for a new luxury line of cruelty free nail polish, definitely give John Russo a peek.
