Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen Collection

Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen Collection – Press Samples

You guys, this collection is so special. Joy Lacquer debuted this collection at Cocktails and Colors this year in Vegas, and oh my gosh my heart melted when she spoke about this inspiration! Her daughter started kindergarten this year, and this collection is for HER! ūüôā Let’s get to the Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen Collection!


teal Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen Show and Teal DayJoy Lacquer Kinder Queen Show and Teal Day Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen Show and Teal Day

Formula/Application: Formula is a tiny bit thick, so I did notice some pulling. As long as you keep the coats thin and a good dry time between, you should have no issues!

Coverage: Opaque in two coats

Color:  A bright blue-green color that leans deeper emerald and has a light holo finish

Finish: Crelly flake holo

Notes:¬†From the maker:¬†Show and Teal Day – This bright teal is more than meets the eye because you’ll notice it pops with electric blue sparkles and shimmers with a bright green and gold flash.¬†¬† As a kid, the much anticipated Show and Tell Day was the highlight of our week and this polish is definitely brag-worthy.


pbj Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen PB&J Yay! Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen PB&J Yay! Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen PB&J Yay!

Formula/Application: Lovely formula and application!

Coverage: Opaque in two coats

Color:  Shimmery taupe with a strong pink flash.  It includes copper brown flecks, and a few raspberry and grape chrome flakies speckled in.

Finish: Crelly flake

Notes:¬†From the maker: PB&J Yay! – ¬†The base has a smooth “buttery” application, but is still a bit “jelly” to accommodate layering of the flakies.¬† PB&J is a classic memory for those who brown bagged it to school every day and this is my interpretation of the classic sandwich, represented in the most beautiful way possible!


gfd Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen I Heart My Teacher Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen I Heart My Teacher Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen I Heart My Teacher

Formula/Application: No issues to report, I absolutely LOVE this formula!

Coverage: Opaque in two coats

Color:  Pink

Finish: Crelly linear holo

Notes:¬†From the maker:I Heart My Teacher –¬† A linear holographic pink that’s fun and bright, I Heart My Teacher is even more beautiful when you notice the combination of subtle gold and lavender flashes that catch in the light.¬†¬† Being a teacher takes patience, commitment and a huge heart and this is my tribute to the incredible people that make up the fiber of the education system.¬† Teachers, we heart you!


crush Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen Crush on The Blue Eyed Boy Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen Crush on The Blue Eyed Boy Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen Crush on The Blue Eyed Boy

Formula/Application: Another great formula and application

Coverage: Opaque in two coats

Color:  Royal blue with pink/blue shimmer micro flakes

Finish: Jelly shimmer

Notes: From the maker: Crush on the Blue Eyed Boy РA beautiful royal-blue violet with a sparkling jewel-like shimmer.  There is abundant purple and blue micro-flecks throughout the polish and dash of scattered holo dust that gives it an extra twinkle.  The one thing you remember most about your first crush is the color of his eyes and this polish was made to match a dreamy shade of blue.


crocodiletears Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen Crocodile Tears Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen Crocodile Tears Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen Crocodile Tears Joy Lacquer Kinder Queen Crocodile Tears

Formula/Application:¬†This is a topper, and I didn’t have any issues

Coverage: Topper

Color:  Clear base with blue, teal, and sea green shimmers/glitters

Finish: Glitter/shimmer topper

Notes: From the maker: In this iridescent micro-glitter-bomb top coat, the turquoise, aqua and emerald-green elements take several forms.  Multi-sized and multi-shaped holographic glitter glisten in sheer pearly base.  This ethereal aqua top coat shimmers with an opal-like finish and will transform any base color into sparkling drops of wonder.

Tears on the first day of school, it happens.  The kiddos might be crying crocodile tears, but once my kinder-queen is in class, my mama tears will be flowing for realz!

Formula/Application: Thermal Рformula and application were great!

Coverage: Near opaque in two coats (cold version is opaque)

Color:  Black to grey thermal with holo microglitter and lavender shimmer

Finish: Thermal holo shimmer

Notes:¬†From the maker: This is the thermal of the collection. A black to gray scattered holo with an intense galactic finish. When warm, the gray shows speckles of black holo microglitter and silvery lavender shimmers.¬† In the cold state, it’s a deep charcoal-gray that highlights the¬† reflective holo glitters, and again the beautiful scattered purple effect.¬† Just like the polish “fades” as it warms to you, your backpack might go from a shiny and new at the beginning of the year, to a comfy worn color by the last day of school.
