    Special notePlease ensure shifting polishes are not left in hot mailboxes for longer than necessary as extreme temperatures can easily cause them to lose shifting ability! This color is a very sensitive thermal and as such, it may rest on different colors with different people. Generally a dramatic shift effect will be most noticeable on people whose nails have a longer free edge; those with shorter nails may not see as dramatic of an ombre shift effect. Due to the nature of the thermal shift pigments used, the polish may need to cure on the nails for several hours before the thermal shift is readily visible. If they arrive in the mail warm, immediately place them in a cool place to acclimate for several hours before use.  Exposure to extreme temperature fluctuations may have an impact on a transition polish's sensitivity.  Generally transition polish will have a shelf life of 6-12 months.  When stored properly, many of them will retain their shift ability much longer. 

    Note: This polish is named after a scent that Joy Lacquer offers, but this is not a scented polish.

    Joy Lacquer is proudly made in Seattle, WA, USA. This nail lacquer is made using a 5-free nail polish suspension base that is free from Toulene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, and Camphor. All Joy Lacquers are handmade products and as such, each batch of polish can display very small variations due to handcrafted artisan nature of the product. Due to the handmade nature of the polish, some mild separation can occur and does not affect the overall quality of the product. Always gently roll the bottle prior to use to ensure even mixture and application. Use of Joy Lacquer base coat and top coat are recommended for optimal application and longevity of wear. Full sized polishes are filled to their 13mL maximum volume and include a wide, flat brush for ease and evenness of application.
