Joy and Polish Pink About It - Bottle Shot 2

Following on from Just Blue-tiful, today I have a review and swatches of Joy & Polish Co Pink About It.

Joy & Polish Co was first introduced to me through Craftadian last year.  It is a local(ish) indie polish company run by the lovely Steph.  I loved the Spiced Plum and Goldschlaquer I tried back then as well as Merry Grinchy Christmas I picked up at a holiday market so jumped at the chance to try her new bright Spring/Summer collection.
