Fiore By Julep

Now I can officially say: HAPPY NEW YEAR! I’m getting good vibes about 2014, and am also looking forward to seeing what’s in store for Polished PR :) One of the big goals for this blog that I want to have completed by the end of this year is to swatch all the colors in my nail polish collection. Considering I have a good number (but not a crazy amount) of colors, it’s definitely feasible.

On Black Friday, Julep had a big online sale, including $1 polishes on select colors. While scrolling through the list of colors, Fiore caught my eye, and I happily placed the item in my cart and checked out. Yes, only one polish– I told myself I was going to focus on spending on others instead of myself during the holidays! I waited until yesterday to swatch it since I was so focused on nail designs for Christmas and New Year’s Eve during these past couple of weeks.

After the initial application and after seeing how the color turned out in photos, I dubbed Fiore as a charcoal with violet undertones. The website, however, describes it as an ‘espresso brown crème’. Uhm…is it just me, or does this color definitely NOT look anything like a brown?! Regardless of the description though, I was satisfied with the smooth, creamy application, but I would have liked it if the color was a little bit lighter– every time I look down at my nails, it appears as if I’m wearing black nail polish :(

I would love your input on my next swatch! What shades or tones would you like to see on my nails next?

  1. It is kind of brownish on the first photo but I wouldn’t call it a brown. Like the colour though, not too sure if I’d wear it alone. I am sure though that it will look great in nail art :)

    • Yeah, I definitely wasn’t impressed with the color on its own, but I’m curious to see how it’ll look with other colors in a design. I think a color block design would look great incorporating this color! :)
