Joy Lacquer Swatch-A-Thon! – Press Samples

Hello everyone, and Happy Monday! Today I have several gorgeous colors to share with you from Joy Lacquer! She has an amazing system where every month she creates a custom pop up ’boutique’ with fun colors only available for that month. I have two of those to share, plus some polishes she created from her science group! Let’s get to the polishes!

Formula/Application: Perfect formula and application. The shimmer didn’t cause any dragging or streaking.

Coverage: Opaque in two coats

Color: Neon blue with icy blue shimmer

Finish: Creme shimmer

Notes: Isn’t this insane! It’s so pretty. Note from the maker: Repo! The Genetic Opera Duo – Co-created by Katy and based on a musical called Repo! The Genetic Opera. It’s set in the not so distant future where they’ve overcome death with synthetic organs you can buy…if you can afford them. If you can’t, you finance them but when you miss a payment, the Repo Man strikes!  Zydrate is the drug of the future, it’s a potent pain killer but also highly addictive. Just like nail polish!

Formula/Application: Perfect formula and application. The shimmer didn’t cause any dragging or streaking, and the mini glitter is so gorgeous!

Coverage: Opaque in two coats

Color: Lavender with icy blue shimmer and neon pigment

Finish: Creme shimmer

Notes: II can’t tell which one I like more. The icy blue shimmer sold me, though, so I guess I’m ok with both! 🙂  Note from the maker: Repo!

Formula/Application: This one was a tiny bit sticky, but wasn’t hard to apply. I think next time I would use a black base so I could alleviate some of the drag.

Coverage: Opaque in three coats

Color: Black jelly base with yellow and red glitter

Finish: Jelly glitter

Notes: This is part of one of her science colors. I LOVE how the yellow pokes through the black base, and the red is an awesome touch.

Formula/Application: No issues to report, application and formula were great!

Coverage: VNL with three coats on its own, glitter topper over a base

Color: Baby pink hex glitter, pale pink micro glitter, and holo dot glitter

Finish: Glitter topper

Notes: This is part of one of her science colors. This is named after the Wright Giemsa Stain, which is a histology stain that is used in peripheral blood and bone marrow samples. It stains the different parts of the blood! Here, in this polish, we have the pale pink micro glitter as the platelets, the baby pink glitter as the erythrocytes, and the large holo circle glitter as the lymphocytes!  This polish nails it!

Color: Baby pink jelly base with lilac circle glitter, purple large cirlce glitter, purple hexes, and a scattering of chrome flake

Finish: Jelly glitter flake

Notes: This is part of one of her science colors. This back story is pretty interesting, I’m waiting to hear from the inspiration before I post it! Check back to see what makes up this gorgeous shade!  I love this series she does and hopes she does more of them.


So, what do we think of these colors? Hurry to her shop because she only has a few of the June colors left!
