One of the nail polishes I bought in my massive August haul is this awesomely summery Girlstuff nail polish: Joanne. It’s another shimmer polish but it seems that the bottle looks slightly different from my first Girlstuff shimmer polish Nina. It also costs Php140 and can be bought from any Girlstuff kiosk.
How can I describe Joanne? It’s a sparkly metallic orange shade that is slightly holographic. It is very similar to how Nina performed, and seems to change its appearance depending on the lighting. Here is how Joanne looks like indoors. Notice how muted the orange looks, although the shimmer is pretty evident.
Check out how it looks outdoors. The metallic is more noticeable here, and that orange just jumps right out at you.
However on a different angle, it seems like it’s a deeper shade of orange! I really love how moody this polish is.
And again, a more muted orange. Very interesting effect!
Again there is that single drawback to this polish: the very strong smell! But I would love to try other shades, and maybe try a non-shimmer polish next time.
