Joe Fresh Khaki

I was so excited when the Canadian store, Joe Fresh, opened its NYC flagship store literally two blocks from my boyfriend's apartment.  So like the dutiful nail polish blogger that I am, I took the long and arduous trek to the store and ogled endlessly at their wall of nail polish.


In the end, I only bought one for myself and picked up a few for the other polishaholics in my life.  Don't worry though; I intend to buy more in the near future :)


Anyways, while the Joe Fresh polishes are on the tiny side, they are super saturated and have an excellent, wider brush that helps this apply apply super smoothly.  I often find smaller polish wands hard to handle, but I didn't have any issues here.  Just a really perfect application in two coats.


The color is a really pretty muted green, although is probably better suited for fall than spring.  A grey based sage green, this creme is super soft looking...but has a special surprise.  Take a look.




See that blue shimmer?!  How cool is that?  I love a slight shimmer in my cremes so this polish really impressed me.  Most sage and green polishes, if they have any shimmer, typically shine gold, bronze, or a similar complimentary tone.  I really like that instead of using a corresponding warmer shimmer, the Joe Fresh polish people went with a cooler blue shimmer that pops if you look closely.  Well done, Joe Fresh, well done.


To my Canadian girlies: now that I have JF access, are there colors I must get?  (Major sad face: Joe Fresh Twilight isn't sold here.)

  7. If you have it, I'd love to see it on you! You don't swatch that much green. I just recently got into it, so I'm trying to convert everyone to use green polish more :)

  10. Not a problem! It's a reason to get a new polish! Teal needs a friend, I think Khaki would suffice ;)
