Joy Lacquer ~ Kinder Queen Collection

                                                                        *Provided for review


          Hey guys! I have been sitting on these polishes for a couple months and I CANNOT wait to show them to you :) The Kinder Queen Collection has 7 polishes that represent Joy's daughter going into school. This collection will be available on September 9th. The theme for these are so fun. Let's get right to it because there are a lot of pics!! I will be using Joy's personal descriptions of each polish but also my own opinion of quality.


          Josie Joy - "A rich iris purple linear holo with a subtle red/orange chameleon shifty-ness and a smooth finish.  In honor of her starting Kindergarten this year, Josie's favorite color purple, is named after her in this school themed collection." I used 2 perfect coats of this polish plus top coat. The red/orange shifty-ness came off really rosey to me.

PB&J Yay! -  " This delicate looking polish is a shimmery taupe with a strong pink flash.  It includes copper brown flecks, and a few raspberry and grape chrome flakies speckled in. 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!" All I can say is YES!! This is perfect for PB&J! 2 coats of perfection with top coat.

Crush on the Blue Eyed Boy - "A 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." This is such a dreamy blue polish. Of course the formula was flawless. I used 2 coats with top coat.

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!" This one is extra special for me. My mother-in-law just retired as a high school English teacher. She is just as spunky as this polish so it was all to perfect. 2 coats of perfection with top coat.

Crocodile Tears - "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 aqua-blue shimmers with an opal-like finish. This ethereal top coat transforms 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, mommy tears are going to flow for realz!" I love glitter toppers like this. It has taken me a very long time to appreciate glitter and this would have to be my favorite type of mix. The base is a shimmer base that shifts from blue, to green, to purple. It also has holo and iridescent glitters. Its not at all over powering though. I used 1 coat of Crocodile Tears over SinfulColors Chalk It Up with top coat.

Show and Teal Day - "A bright blue-green color that leans deeper emerald and has a light holo finish.  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." This polish is one that you constantly stare at because it constantly shifts. So, so pretty. I used 2 coats with top coat.

Brand New Black Pack -" Brand new school year means a brand new back pack!
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. 
Coincidentally when school shopping this fall, we were able to find a Jansport that could pass for the inspiration bag. We snatched it right up and I'm happy to share the picture of this classic bag, black with purple and pink galaxy print, matching the polish!" Thermals are my 1 of my favorite types of polish. This one is just awesome!! I used 3 thin coats for this one but it is totally doable in 2 coats. I also topped this one with top coat. Tons of pics to show transition and all that good stuff!

I love this collection. It is fun and vibrant and there is definitely a polish for everyone. I really feel that this brand needs so much more promoting. The polish is wonderful but Joy does so much more. I have already raved about the coffee scrub but I have also tried the coffee bar soap, cuticle serums, and a whipped hand scrub. Seriously top notch stuff. Please make sure you check out all of the links!! And please feel free to share my post :)  SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!!!! Have a great weekend everyone!!
