I don’t think that I know anyone who gives Color Street It’s a Jersey Shore Thing a second glance on the Color Street shopping website. It almost looks sallow in the photo, and the description calls it a “pale beige shade.” Meh. While I have not actively avoided this color, I haven’t reached for it YET until I swatched all the Color Street solids. Well, friends, let me tell you, It’s a Jersey Shore Thing JUMPED to the top of my list for when I want to have the perfect neutral nail color.
Color Street It’s a Jersey Shore Thing
It’s a Jersey Shore Thing is one of the lightest of the available Color Street nude colors. It’s truly an unremarkable color until you are ready for a nude. If you love the classy look of nude painted nails, and don’t want brown or gray undertones, then It’s a Jersey Shore Thing is going to be perfect for you.
Color Street It’s a Jersey Shore Thing Swatches
Now the moment you’ve been waiting for…..seeing It’s a Jersey Shore Thing on my nails!
This first pic is to show the contrast of the color against my skin vs in the package. Most of the time, the color of nude nail polish tends to vary according to the skin tone of the person wearing it. I have fair skin, with pink undertones. I was afraid that it would clash with my skin, but overall, it was a lovely peachy nude color.
Here is a pic of It’s a Jersey Shore Thing on my nails in the sunlight. You can see a few small dings in the polish where I didn’t get the application PERFECT – those would smooth out after a few hours of wear, and it would look amazing.
But hold on, you guys. You know how matte nails are a trend? You got it, I got you a picture of It’s a Jersey Shore Thing with a matte top coat. For this photo, I used the OPI matte top coat. You can get it from Amazon HERE, or from your favorite local beauty supply store.
Note: a matte top coat is an easy addition, but just know this….if you’ve had a hard time with application, a matte top coat is going to show every flaw – it’s ok to get the nail polish remover out and clean them off and start over if you mess up!
Color Street It’s a Jersey Shore Thing Review
Remember, I swatched all of the solids back-to-back, so I got to try alllllll the colors to see what I loved. This one went on like a dream! I swatched It’s a Jersey Shore Thing around the time when I was hitting my stride and getting good at applying Color Street solids, and starting to get excited about how well it was going.
Have you ever had trouble wearing Color Street solids? Let me give you some pro tips here:
- You don’t NEED special tools to apply solids, but a rubber tipped cuticle pusher will make it exponentially easier. You can get a multi-pack HERE from Amazon. It WILL change your life. You can use the rubber tip to smooth any rough edges out.
- Ever heard a stylist say to “stretch” the color? I did and had no idea what they were talking about. They are really just saying to pull it smoothly over the nail. I think of it like this: imagine putting plastic wrap over a salad bowl. You’re going to pull the plastic wrap taut over the bowl – that’s all they mean by the word “stretch.”
- It’s okay to use a base coat. Yep, you heard me right. Color Street nail polish comes with a base coat, color coat, and top coat. However, I have issues with super ridged nails. See, in 7th grade, I had a cuticle get infected, and I lost my thumbnail. Thankfully, it grew back just fine – except for a deep ridge. That ride is the place where my nail polish ALWAYS chips first, no matter the brand. The best way that I have found to combat that is by wearing a base coat.
