The polish that started it all

So here it is, the polish that started it all for me.

This is Jessica's Palladium.  I bought a bottle of this years ago from Priceline, it was just a fluke acquisition, cause I had never seen Jessica polishes there before and I have never seen them there again.

It is the most sparkly champagne gold colour.  It is so pretty and it matches my jewellery perfectly.  I LOVE IT.

Eventually my bottle ran out, and I don't think I have ever run out of a polish before.  So I started trying to find a replacement.  I finally found some online, and it was this tiny 7ml bottle and it cost be about 12 pounds to buy and post to Australia.  But I'm so happy to have a little bit of it again.  I have heaps of colours similar to this, but have never found a dupe.  Has anyone seen any Jessica polishes for sale here is Australia recently?

Oh, and because of all my online searching for this polish, I found some awesome blogs showing even more awesome swatches of polishes available overseas and the rest they say is history.


  1. Wow what a pretty polish. And it looks like a flattering gold too (I've just painted mine a very unflattering gold... blergh). Can't believe you got a Jessica in Priceline.

    Ooo, good point no nail polish in my bag (I think you may have just encouraged me to add something more to it :P).

    I'm glad you like Punk. Can't wait to see your swatches! I'm thinking of layering it with some of the other Rockstar polishes because I want that pink shimmer!


  2. I found a few Jessicas at a makeup/body care outlet here in Melbourne recently. Not a huge range but I'll check whether they have Palladium next time I go in and let you know :)
