JOSS Lacquers - 700 series swatches Pt 1

By the looks of the answers so far on my Guess that polish giveaway, most of you are quite familiar with the JOSS holographic shades.  Although I doubt many of you would have seen many other JOSS shades.  I recently received a whole bunch of JOSS shades to swatch, and was asked to do a set of eight shades from the 700 series first because swatches were needed for an international stockist.  I have four tonight, and will bring you another four soon.

Bitter Sweet - deep purple shimmer with a slight red duochrome.  Beautifully pigmented, this was two coats with Seche Vite top coat.

Exotic - a bright shimmery aqua blue with a pale mauve duochrome. Two coats with Seche Vite top coat.

Shock Tactics - bright in your face hot pink shimmer. Two coats with Seche Vite top coat.

Tequila Sunrise - ultra bright golden orange shimmer. Two coats with Seche Vite top coat.

The formula on all these was great.  They all have a strong shimmer, so some slight brushmarks are noticable in the full sun shots.  The colours were all very saturated and opaque in two coats.

Aussies can get these shades through Beauty World for $5.95 a bottle, but remember they have a minimum purchase amount, so grab your polishes next time your stocking up on frankening supplies.  These shades are also available from Norway Nails who ship all throughout Europe.  US Ladies, there are no shipping options available for you guys right now, but if the colours are popular then maybe Llarowe might stock them, like she did with the JOSS Holos.


  1. The colors of these polishes are brilliant. The orange one is stunning!

  2. They're all so pretty and shiny!

  3. They're really pretty, so hooray for a Scandinavian stockist! <3

  4. Beautiful swatches! I have a feeling some of these will end up in my cart when I place my next BW order. :)
