Beauty Queen

First of all, a huge congratulations to IG@ale1mtz for winning my blog launch giveaway! Thank you to everyone who entered and celebrated the start of my blog. 

Tonight I have a dynamo of an indie polish to share with you. I saw some early swatches of this polish a few weeks ago and was immediately enamored. I couldn't resist picking it up on presale, and had to swatch it immediately upon arrival! This is Beauty Queen by The Juice Box Lacquer, a black jelly polish with a mix of magenta, gold, and holo glitters.

This is two thin coats topped with Seche Vite. The jelly achieved full opacity very easily, and there was no fishing for glitters. I did dig out a few extra of those big holo circles, because how couldn't I. Real talk: I am quickly developing a circle glitter addiction, and this beauty certainly has not deterred my thirst!

Bottle shot -- this polish is truly unique. The shapes and colors of glitters really stand out in the black base, and there's a perfect ratio of glitter to base in each stroke. As I do with all polishes like this, I sat the bottle upside down for about 5 minutes and gave it a good shake before application.

Another angle to highlight the complexity of this gorgeous polish.

This polish is from the "Alive" collection by The Juice Box Lacquer, and is currently available, along with many others. You can see all this lovely label has to offer by visiting their website or following on Instagram.
