    Pearl Jam released Ten, their debut album on August 27, 1991.  This and many other Seattle bands emerging in the early nineties gave rise to the now infamous Seattle grunge scene.  Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Temple of the Dog, Alice in Chains, Mother Love Bone and Soundgarden are among the most influential and still a few of my favorites.  

    Late last year, Melissa from My Lacquer Cabinet approached me with a desire for some custom Pearl Jam polish. She listed off her favorite songs and seeing that the list was rather long, we decided to narrow it down to ten.  After some quick math, it was discovered the 25 year anniversary of the Ten album release was to fall in late August of 2016!  Because of this milestone, we knew this collection needed to go public.  

    Here is what Melissa has to say about the inspiration for "Star in Someone Else's Sky"

    I know someday you’ll have a beautiful life /
    I know you’ll be a star in somebody else’s sky /
    But why why, why can’t it be /
    Can’t it be mine

    "You’ll Be a Star in Someone Else’s Sky is a deep midnight purple polish with scattered holo and blue and gold holo microglitters, which was inspired by the song Black. The song is about lost love and the one that got away. Can I just say for someone who doesn’t love purple, I *love* this polish?  I love that Joy didn’t go with the obvious black polish and instead made the polish look like a night sky filled with twinkling stars. The colour is a couple shades darker in person than my photos show.  The full spectrum light really brightened up the purple.  The last macro shot shows just how deep of a purple this polish is on the nail. Never before has heartbreak looked so beautiful."

    Colors may vary slightly due to monitor settings.  To showcase variety, swatch and brush photos were taken under different types of lighting.  Melissa's were taken with a DSLR under a full spectrum bulb and Bitty Sween's were taken in bright natural light.  I did brush macro shots myself, in the direct sun.

    Joy Lacquer nail color is made from a 5-free suspension base.  That means it contains no Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor.  These ingredients are often found in mainstream nail polishes that you would find in the store.  Polish is mixed by hand in small batches, so slight batch variation may occur.  As in any handmade product, some separation can be normal. Always roll the bottle gently before use.  For optimal application, a base coat and quick dry top coat is recommended.  Joy Lacquer's full size bottles are max filled at 13 mls. and contain a wide flat brush for a nice, smooth application.
