Julep describes Joyce as "a lava red shimmer." Joyce does have a really pretty shimmer in the bottle and it definitely translates on to the nail. I feel like this polish is more pink than red, at least on my skin tone. For this manicure I used 1-2 coats of Joyce (depending on the nail) and then on my ring fingers I placed two gems close to the cuticle to give a bit more sparkle to my nails. The formula of this polish was great. I had no problems with application at all. I top coated everything with one coat of HK Girl top coat.

You can find Julep Joyce here and the gems can be found on Amazon or at a beauty store like Sally's Beauty Supply. I really like how this turned out. Do you prefer a more simple manicure or do you like more glitz and glam? I'd love to hear what you think!
Keep an eye out because I will be putting up a second post today. I will be showing the overview of the Mystery bag that I purchased from Glisten and Glow recently. It will be coming shortly!
