I love shopping for lettuce. Not. But, if you’re in Canada, where’s there’s lettuce, maybe there's the Joe Fresh Polish spring 2015 collection. It makes lettuce shopping a much happier experience and I’ll show you why.
Joe Fresh Spring 2015 Collection Swatches
It’s important for me to show you what these little bottles are made up of. In that picture above, you can see the cute little 6mL bottle, the really great flexible brush, and the pop-off cap that reveals the easy-to-maneuver handle thingy. I like these bottles ‘n brushes. A lot.
Above: Joe Fresh Ice. Shimmery pearl with a pale blue flash in two easy coats. Would I wear it like that all by itself? Probably not, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s very pretty if you’re a fan of shimmery sheer.
Above: Joe Fresh Pink Pearl. Wow. Does that remind you of anything? Hmmm? Yeah, there’s a certain Essie Cashmere Matte that’s awfully similar (but not the same). This here Joe Fresh Pink Pearl is less than ½ the price and has the same satin matte finish.
Above: Joe Fresh Ice over Pink Pearl. Oooh! Pretty! One coat of Ice over two coats of Pink Pearl – so easy!
Above: Joe Fresh Mist. There’s something about this almost frosty, almost pearly shimmery greenish grey that speaks to me. I really, really like it.
Above: Joe Fresh Pale Blue. Not particularly exciting, but perfectly on-trend for spring this year. Application of this barely-blue is easier than I thought it would be with so much white stuffed in there. That’s two coats and no top coat – shiny, huh?
Above: Joe Fresh Powder Blue. I like this blue much better than the last but maybe because I haven’t seen that many in this shade for spring 2015. Pale cornflower blue that leans a little lilac – so pretty.
Above: Joe Fresh Polish Spring 2015 – Mauve. Ooooh. Dusty, dusty lilac. Similar to OPI Hello Hawaii Ya, yes. But, Mauve is lighter - more like the OPI’s softer, gentler sister. J’adore.
Above: Joe Fresh Sweet Pea. Shades like these make me smile simply because they’re not for everyone. It takes a brave kind of polish wearer to sport a chartreusey shade like this one. I’m that brave kind of wearer. My dad would not approve of this shade – he’d probably call it ghastly. I just call it fun.
Above: Joe Fresh Pale Moss. Oh, a Joe Fresh chrome. They’ve been popping a few of these out over the past couple seasons and really, they’ve got a sweet formula. That’s two coats over my super-smooth RCM base coat. It dries down without the heavy streaking you’d expect from a $4 polish but hey, it’s Joe Fresh and Joe Fresh makes a swell little bottle-o-polish. Top coat dulls the finish so roll without. Also, if you’re lucky, as with all the chrome finishes, you’ll get a whole day of wear!
Joe Fresh Comparison Swatches
And that’s the Joe Fresh polish spring 2015 lineup. Anything grab you? At $4 a shade or 3 for $10, I think I’ll head to the grocery store now. Oh – and you’re going to use your favourite base and top coat with these, right? Just like with any polish, you need that stuff to increase wear time.
