Joy Lacquer Misc. Swatches Part 1

June 13, 2016

Hi everyone! I have some gorgeous polishes from Joy Lacquer to show you guys today. This is part 1 because Joy sent 4 more for me to review but I already had these swatched so I want to share now because I'm impatient. I was struck down with a stomach virus over the weekend so my swatching was put on hold, but the other 4 will be up this week hopefully, so stay tuned!

Description: A hybrid version of the original white glitter creme polish and the opal jelly. This version is filled with beautiful flakes!
Application & Formula: Perfect formula and flawless application. Applies smoothly, is still patchy at 2 thin coats.
Opacity: 3 coats
Description: A white crelly/jelly filled with sparkles. Can be used as a stand alone polish or layered over a base.
Application & Formula: I was worried this one would be thick and hard to apply but I'm happy to report I was wrong! Great formula, applies like a dream.
Opacity: 3 coats
Price: $10.50
Description: A creamy mint with scattered holo. 
Application & Formula: PERFECTION IN A BOTTLE. I can't get over how fantastic this polish applied! Could easily pull this off in ONE thick coat. This is Joy Lacquer's biggest seller, and I can understand why! Beautiful color and great application.
Opacity: 2 coats
Price: $9
Description: A tri-color thermal that applies a deep teal green, at average temps. Changes to baby blue when warm, and dark rich purple when cold.  
Application & Formula: Has a jelly like formula and applies like butter. I did have some trouble with transitioning, but I blame my room temperature as I sit right in front of an air conditioner.
Opacity: 3 coats
Price: $10
Description: A perwinkle polish with pink and purple holo glitter with a pink shift and linear holo finish.
Application & Formula: Another perfection in a bottle. This polish is absolutely STUNNING and applied like a dream. No issues to report.
Opacity: 2 coats
Price: $10

Since I'm pretty new to Joy Lacquer, Joy told me about her "custom boutique" and I thought I'd share the info with you guys! Enchanted Pixie was one of her earliest customs and is now one of her core colors and is staying in the shop.

"Every 2 or 3 months I take all the customs I've made for people and (with permission) I open a pre-order listing, lasting several days. When it closes, I make the polish and ship within the week. People love it because gives them a chance to purchase customs that are extremely LE. I almost think that's why so many people continue to order customs from me, it's fun for them to show off the inspirations and story behind the polish.  Normally I let the group vote in their favorites from about 20-30 colors and I feature about 15-18. But it's been overwhelming for me, so this round I'm only featuring duos and trios, narrowing it down to about a dozen colors."

Do you have a favorite from these? What is your all time fav from Joy Lacquer?
