JOSS Shattered Gold with simple Christmas Trees

I recently received a some nail mail from the Nail Super Store with 12 new JOSS lacquers.  I'm really excited to show you swatches of them, because I think they are all so stunning, but you are going to have to wait for that!

Instead I picked just one to wear in some simple Christmas themed nail art. There are two golds in set of 12, and I flipped a coin to choose which one to put on.  The winner was Shattered Gold, which is an amazingly sparkly gold polish with gold flakies and micro holo gold square glitters.  It's a really stunner!

Then I stamped some simple little trees using Mundo de Unas green polish and then added some teeny tiny silver holo stars on top of the trees.  Simple and quick.

These first three photos are taken indoors with artificial light, and the thee at the bottom are in natural clouded light.  In the clouded light you can also see a slight duochrome finish that shifts blue.  You can see in on my nail and more prominently in the bottle on the second last photo.  

The formula was great and I did two coats for what seemed like opacity, although looking at these photos there are a few thin patches that could have been evened out with a third coat.  But in real life, two coats is plenty because the reflective sheen means you don't see the gaps.


  1. I love the sweeping boughs on your Christmas trees and those sweet little stars at the tops. Great polish from JOSS -- lovely manicure!
