Review & Swatches - Joe Fresh Spring 2011 Polish: Twilight

Hey guys!

Yesterday David (the bf) and I were at Dominion picking up a few groceries and as always, before we left I just had to drop by the beauty section to see if there was anything new. I didn't see anything special but on our way out of the beauty department I spotted a little bin of Joe Fresh nail polishes. I've known about these polishes for a while now but I never really had any interest in trying them. Until now.

I sorted through the bin out of curiosity and happened to spot what looked like a flakie polish. At first I thought no way, Joe Fresh definitely doesn't have a flakie polish. But sure enough, it was a full-blown flakie-fest!

This polish is called Twilight and after doing a little googling, I've discovered that it was actually released with the Spring 2011 collection. It definitely doesn't seem like a Spring polish to me, although I'm not bothered since I basically ignore season-based manicures. However this does feel a little out of place among the other season-friendly pastels of Spring.

Nonetheless, I'm VERY happy to add another flakie polish to my collection, especially an affordable one!

Look at those flakies! I'm completely in love with this polish! In fact, I think I'm going to go back tomorrow and pick up a back up!

The formula of this was really good, although it does take 3 coats for it to be opaque on its own. For this reason I suggest layering it over a black base as this only takes 1 coat so you waste less polish.

Joe Fresh polishes retail for $4 each or 3 for $10 and can be bought at Dominion.

What do you guys think? Did I just create a new lemming?

  6. I love this polish! I don't own any flakies yet and they're my favorite, I guess around me there aren't any really sold in stores. I missed the Hidden Treasure boat. :( Hopefully some new ones will come out soon!

    LacquerSmack: I hope you've entered my giveaway! I'm giving away a bottle of Hidden Treasure. :)

  14. I love Joe Fresh polishes! I actually prefer their formula and brush to a lot of more well known brands (I wanted to pitch Revlon Minted out the damn window)

    I will have to scour the Super Store for this little guy!

  15. I am so glad you did a swatch of this. I saw it the other day when I was buying a new matte top coat and REALLY liked it in the bottle but I wasn't sure. I'm seriously in love with it. I will have to go back to buy it.
