Joy Lacquer - Indie Shop Event Limited Editions (swatches and review)

**press sample**
Hi guys! Today I have three gorgeous polishes from Joy Lacquer to share with you! These are limited edition for the Indie Shop Event in March and all have a bit of an Enchanted Forest theme!

Shadow Grove is a gorgeous deep purple to forest green/teal multichrome filled with scattered holo micro flakies! For a multichrome, this was pretty opaque. I did two coats plus topcoat, but depending on your application, you may need a third. It dried fairly shiny on its own and was easy to remove.

Dark Side of the Moonicorn is a beautiful deep magenta to copper multichrome filled with iridescent purple and aqua micro glitters. Super pretty combo! Here I did just two coats plus topcoat! It dried pretty shiny, but ever so slightly textured due to the glitters, so you'll want to be sure to use a good topcoat. It will also be a little harder to remove due to those glitters, but not horrible since there aren't a ton of them.

Pixie Elixir is a lovely violet to sort of an orange multichrome and is a linear holo. Really beautiful color! The orange isn't "in your face orange", but is apparent at certain angles. To me it appears like a peachy orange. Another great formula that was opaque in two coats plus topcoat!

These beauties will be available at the Indie Shop Event in Atlanta on March 11th and will be available for preorder in Joy Lacquer's shop before the event, as well as in limited quantities after the event. You can check out more info on the Indie Shop Event on it's IG and Facebook pages.

Thanks for reading!
