Joe Fresh Fall Nail Polish Swatches and Review

Joe Fresh is a brand exclusive to the Real Canadian Superstore in Canada and their affiliated stores. I love their polishes, I purchased some in the summer and recently they released some new Fall colours, they are perfect and apply like a dream. The ones that I will show you are one-coaters and very vibrant, great for the fall. I picked up Persian Blue, Orchid and Fig (Fig isn't in the fall line, but I included it anyway). They sell for 3 for $10.

Joe Fresh "Fig" is a dusty purple cream, I love colours like this. This resembles several polishes in my collection including OPI Parlez Vous OPI and some others (picture above). This was one coat. I wore this for a few days, it didn't last well through washing dishes, there were minor chips at the tips after the second day, then it was time for a new manicure anyway.

Joe Fresh "Orchid" is a reddish plum purple creme. This one applies like butter with one coat as well. This one is so fall looking, love it.

Joe Fresh "Persian Blue" is definitely the favourite of mine from these three, it is a medium blue leaning to teal creme. This is what I wanted OPI Ski Teal We Drop to look like. As you can tell in the bottle it is very similar to the OPI shade, slightly lighter.This is one coat, opaque totally and gorgeous.

And here is a comparison between the OPI and Joe Fresh, Persian Blue looks slightly lighter than the OPI, but I actually prefer it and it applies better too. My OPI went really thick and lumpy here, not sure why. And for the price, the Joe Fresh is a steal, if you are in Canada I would suggest definitely picking this one up. It was the last one at my Superstore, I lucked out getting it. And we know that Superstore hardly ever restocks their Joe Fresh racks, so if yours is out, it's gonna take some time to get more.

Do you have any of the new Joe Fresh fall polishes?

Wow! Those are pretty nice polishes for such a cheap price. I have never tried them before because I have this sort of weird mentality that if it's super cheap, than the quality can't be that good. I think you have convinced me to go give them a try!

@Halifax - persian blue is awesome!

@Junerose - I have like a dozen polishes from them, they are great if you don't mind changing your polishes after a few days, cause I find they do chip. But the colours are great. The bottles are tiny too and the applicator is wide (like OPI) but short, so you gotta get used to that too.

Orchid and Parisian Blue look great! I have to get back to look if my RCSS has more of the fall colours though.
