Joy Lacquer - Birthday Duo + Giveaways (swatches and review)

**press sample**
Hi guys! Today I have Joy Lacquer's 1st Birthday Duo to share with you! Plus there's a little giveaway going on too! I think the first birthday for an indie brand is definitely something to celebrate! A lot of brands, unfortunately don't make it past the first six months, so seeing a thriving business continue its success is really awesome!

Before the giveaway info, let's meet the polishes!

Icing on the Cake is a beautiful, sparkly lavender holo that's filled with blue and purple toned micro glitters! This has a bit of a jelly consistency, but was still opaque for me in two coats plus topcoat!

Birthday Suit is my fav! No surprise to anyone who knows me! It is a sandy, nude linear holo! Love me some nudes! Here I did two coats plus topcoat!

Super cute duo! The duo will be released on May 28th for $20 USD. It includes both polishes, as well as a half ounce sample of 'Blueberry Butter Creme Frosting Whipped Sugar Scrub' and a 5 ml Blueberry Cuticle Butter!
