Joe Fresh Style - Nail Polish Review

Hey Ladies! I recently picked up some Joe Fresh Style nail polishes after loving a few other products I have from them! I have a small obsession with nail polish and I have a lot of them, these were a few to add to my ever expanding collection!

Mint - Limited Edition (Summer)

Gunmetal

Nude

These nail polishes are a great price! At Real Canadian Super Store these sell for $4 each or 3 for $10 (why I have three haha). They also come in super trendy shades that are pretty good dupes for more expensive, popular polishes (Example, Mint - there were so many of those this summer and I actually liked this one the best!) So here are some pros and cons of these polishes:

Pros: 

- Amazing Shades that are always on trend!
- Great permanent collection
- Most have great coverage (Mint and Nude are two coats)
- Dry fast
- Good Staying power
- Price - 3/$10 is great!
- Packaging, I think the bottles are adorable, very clean and cute!
- Cream shades apply with NO streaking or clumping, YAY!

Cons:

- Shimmery/Glittery shades (like Gunmetal) take a lot of coats to get to that shade in the picture (worth it though I LOVE that shade!)
- Brush is average, I much prefer the wide, flat brushes
- Will chip without a good top coat (Seche Vite will do the trick!)
- Not a huge shade selection (but I'm sure its growing!)

As for the shades themselves I absolutely adore all three of these! The gunmetal is a gorgeous alternative to black or the "greige" trend and it adds a little shimmer to your nails! I actually will say it is one of the most gorgeous shades I've ever bought! The nude is equally as gorgeous! I never thought I would like a blush/nude but this looks so stunning and sophisticated! A perfect work nail! And the mint is just so fun! I want this on my toes in the summer with a nice tan, but it looks just as good with my regular pale self! Overall, I think these nail polishes are definitely a good buy and I will be repurchasing in new shades!

I have 10 or so of their polishes, my favourite being powder blue, they are great and inexpensive.

Amazing review and my thoughts exactly. I feel the consistency is its biggest flaw. With some shades you really have to add in the third coat. But they do stay forever. I painted my toes three weeks ago and the polish is still intact. Gotta love the 3 for $10.

I thought Gun Metal is a mettalic grey (have it but haven't swatched it). The swatch looks more like Expresso :) I gotta pull mine out and try lol. Yay for a good Canadian product, right?

@Halifax - It is more of a metallic grey, sorry the picture doesn't do it justice! :) Try it out though, its gorgeous! (even though it takes like 4 coats to get it to look like that!) :)
