Good morning! I'm very excited to be sharing some STUNNING polishes with you guys today! This is Jior Couture's 'As a MATTEr of Fall' Fall Collection. All of these polishes have shimmer and flakies...and as you can probably guess by the name of the collection, they have a matte finish.
**These polishes were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**
Up first is Harvest. Harvest is a beautiful lime green/mustard yellow polish, with shimmer and flakies. The formula for this one was a little thick (Sacha from Jior, emailed me and mentioned this could have happened, so I was prepared for it. Too much air got into the polish when they were packing them.) I just added a little nail polish thinner and it was as good as new :)
One coat was a little sheer and slightly patchy, but once the second coat was applied the polish was completely opaque and self leveled.
I wanted to see what they would look like with topcoat so here you can see 2 fingers with Seche Vite topcoat.
Bonfire is a beautiful, brick red with shimmer and flakies. This color made me melt :P I LOVE this shade of red! I think it looks great with my skin tone.
Again, I applied 1 coat which was slightly sheer, but by the second coat the nail was completely covered and the polish self leveled.
Here is Bonfire with topcoat...isn't it Gorgeous!?
Foliage is a stunning forest green with shimmer and flakies. I was totally gaga for this color! I normally don't really like or really dislike greens, I've typically been pretty neutral, but I REALLY LOVE this shade of green!
Again, I applied one sheer coat and then a second to completely coat the nail. For this one though, I decided to add a third coat, just to add more shimmer and flakies.
Here's the polish with topcoat (Does it make you think of Christmas? ...or is it just me?).
This deep purple polish is absolutely breath taking! This is Migration. I swatched this color too fast to really take in the beauty of it while I was wearing it. But the photos are so pretty! I'll definitely be wearing this one again :)
Again, I applied the first coat, and then completed the swatch with a second coat.
Here's the topcoat. <3 <3
Frost is a beautiful, gunmetal grey. This polish was one of those ones that at first I overlooked, like "oh it's a grey polish, ok nothing super special". But boy was I wrong! This grey with the flakies is mesmerizing!
I applied my first coat and then halfway through my second coat I realized I wasn't getting many of the flakies, so I shook the bottle and applied a third coat and I am so glad I did! You don't really notice how much the flakies enhance this polish until you realize you're not actually getting them onto the nail. Don't make that mistake if you buy these polishes for yourself! YOU WANT THE FLAKIES!! :P
This polish with topcoat is to die for! (Insert googly eyes here).
Last up is Scenic, a beautiful deep blue, shimmer flakie polish. You guys know I love my blues :D
I applied my 2 coats and then decided I wanted more flakies, so I added a third coat.
...And here's the topcoat, which pretty much knocked me out of my chair! LOL!!
I can't even put into words how IN LOVE with this Collection I am...even if I had not swatched these myself, all of the other swatches I've seen of them has just had me gaga. I have never been so IN LOVE with an entire collection before. And I'm slightly sad to admit this, for how much I love matte polishes, I almost liked these better with topcoat!
Both finishes are absolutely perfect though ;)
So, do yourself a favor and get your hands on them! ...Well technically you can't atm because it's all sold out.
