Joy Lacquer fall 2017 birthstone collection swatches


Hey all, welcome back! Today I have the entire 12 piece Birthstones collection from Joy Lacquer to share with you + 1 extra called 1977, the year Joy was born in! This collection is inspired from zodiac birthstones and I love what she's done with this! Stay tuned till the end of this post for important info, launch date, pricing, a huge savings code and learn about a fun gift with purchase!

Be forewarned, this post is going to be a tad photo heavy - so grab a snack! I originally took four photo's of each polish but wanted to keep it as short as I could and included 2 of each to shorten it.

Swatch info: All photo's were taken indoors using led lights and top coated with Cutex quick dry.

Joy has teamed up with Melissa from Love & Lotus, and they've created a coconut and shea butter custom sugar scrub called 1977. The fall fragrance could be described as, "Ocean waves, water lilies, freesia and a dash of spice and holly berries."
