New Year, New Polish from Joy Lacquer

*Press Sample*
Happy New Year! With the start of the New Year, New Flakies are on the way from Joy Lacquer! Launching today are four new limited edition flakies that are going to be sure to steal your heart!  

Let's jump right in and take a look! All of these polishes are stunning with easy coverage in 2-3 coats (depending on your application).  I used three coats for my photos, but easily could have gotten away with two.

Pink Freud is a coppery pink with teal and pink chrome flakies.
Pink and Teal?! Yes please! Also, check the  bottle shot below to see how the chrome picks up some gold as well! 

Great Gig in the Sky - cobalt blue with orange and copper chrome flakie. Easily the most striking color of the group, this cobalt blue steals this blue lovers heart.

Comfortably Plum is a bright purple fuchsia with navy and purple chrome flakie.  Blurple flakie, need I say more?


Avant Garde a Clue is a teal with gold shimmer and pink/gold chrome flakies. This is my favorite of the four because I love teal and the pink and gold flakies are just a stunning contrast to the polish color. 

These colors are pretty limited so if you see one you like don't delay, order today! These incredible flakies are available now and are $10.50 for full size and $7.50 for the minis at!

While these flakie colors are limited edition there is a great selection of core colors available regularly to choose from.  

Right now members of the Joyful Fingers (Joy Lacquer Facebook Fan Group) are voting on which colors from 2016 deserve to join the core lacquer club. Not a member, click here to join the group and vote!

One of the polishes to recently join the Core Collection is Highway Heat. Highway Heat is a thermal polish that is magenta when warm then transitions to plum and almost black in it's coldest state. There is a pink golden shift and has an incredible sparkle.

Aquatic Asphalt
When Highway Heat became part of the core line in the new year, Joy realized there was definitely a need for a similar black thermals in different hues.  Now, it has a cousin! 

Aquatic Ashphalt  is an amazing teal blue color that is highly sensitive to transitions and goes black when cold.  It has a pinkish shimmer and bright turquoise micro-flecks that are most prominently seen in the black/cold state.  When warm, the teal is a complex shimmery color that looks speckled with electric blue micro-flecks.  A must-have color for thermal polish lovers and anybody who already loves it's cousin, Highway Heat!

Also Coming Soon is the Joy Lacquer Custom Pop Up Boutique! 
If your not familiar with this Pop-Up it consists of all recently ordered, non-exclusive custom-made polishes. With the blessing of their co-creator's, the public is able to purchase them on a limited, pre-order basis.

Here is the voting album for new colors featured in the custom shop this round! You need to vote on the colors/photos in the album so Joy know which ones you guys want!

This voting album is open all week through this Friday the 13th. The pre-order window will open on Saturday January 14th and close the following Friday January 20th at

One of these custom polishes is Blissfully Stranded. A deep robins egg/aquamarine shimmer with pink micro glitter, pink iridescent glass-like flecks and a dash of scattered holo.

Co-created by Leila and inspired by the thought of being happily stranded on a beautiful island with pink sand beaches. Romantically reminiscent of The Blue Lagoon movie but mainly because her family was watching the Lost series TV show at the time!

Stunning right?  I love seeing all the custom polish colors that Joy creates for people and learning more about where each individual inspiration comes from. 

Tell me what you think about these colors! Which of the new flakies is your favorite? Did you vote for the core colors or custom boutique colors? I'd love to hear from you!
