Joss polishes- Colour Illusions collection- swatches and review.


Hello there everyone,

Today I have f 5 polishes to share from the Joss Colour Illusions Collection which were sent to me by the lovely Ray over at Beauty World Now for most you Beauty would may not be a name you know, but for us Indie polish makers we frequent Beauty World quite a bit to get an array of supplies for our polish making.
But  Beauty World not only sells glitters and polish making supplies they also sell other beauty related products as well. One of the great ranges they have is their polish collections. Joss have holographic polishes for a little as AUD$9.95 and also glitter polishes from AUD $6.95. I have 5 to share from their glitters with you today!

*please note at all colours were 2-3 coats with a Seche Vite top coat.

In a Mermaids Dream (JC783)- This is a beautiful bright blue that is packed full of holographic and iridescent glitters plus what i can only describe as a green to pink shift. It was really hard to capture the colour shift with in the blue but be assured it is their and this polish totally is a million times more holo that i could also capture!

You can just see the shift in the shade pic. Coverage was easy and the wear was great. i had this on for 3 days before removing it and all i has was a little shrinkage from the Seche Vite.

A Calming Influence (JC782)- This is a lovely lavender jammed packed with holo glitter. I really fell for this colour BIG time! i'm not a huge fan of paler colours but this was just awesome on. Only 2 coats were needed and boy did it sparkle when i went in the sun! I did note a small amount of settling with this polish but i was assured by Ray that this is totally normal with these polishes. and after a bit of a shake the polish was fine.

Amazing...right??!!

In a Violet Haze (JC780)- Is a what i could only describe as a white/silver holo glitter packed polish with a very distinct purple to green colour shift. This i think is another favorite of mine in this collection of Joss Lacquers. 3 coats were needed for full coverage. Again the pics don't do the polish justice. it was SOOOO sparkly on it was insane.

And as i loved the last 2 polishes so much i decided to do a gradient mani with them.

Desert Sunset (JC779)- Is a copper/gold polish packed again full of glitter that has a gold/red shift to it. the polish is so hard to describe. and once again so very hard to capture in photos. i notices a small amount of settling in this polish also but once i had given it a little shake all was well and i applied 2 coats for full coverage. I tried to capture the different colours this polish produces as best i could with shade and sun shots.

Magic Potion (JC781)- Is a very festive green, tho im sure i will wear this at other times too. It is packed full of holo glitter again and I only needed 2 coats. I really like this colour for Christmas!

 For the price of AUD$6.95 these polishes are certainly worth every penny. There are over 20 different Joss lacquers to choose from on the BEAUTY WORLD website, from these glitters, to holographic polishes.
BEAUTY WORLD ship Australia wide currently, but if you love overseas you can head on over to LLarowe and she ships world wide.

Until next time.......
