JOSS FX Affinite Holographic Nail Lacquer Swatches & Review

by Lisa Heath

Have you checked out the Color4Nails website before?  They carry a nice assortment of indie polishes from around the world and make it easy to order some of your favorites in one spot!

One amazing brand Color4Nails  carries is JOSS Lacquer.  I have used JOSS Lacquer before, so I knew I loved the brand.  They have amazing holographic shades in both scattered as well as linear that apply amazingly well.

The first 2 shades I’ll be showing you tonight are not yet carried on the Color4Nails website – so if you like them, make sure you let Color4Nails know (either on her Facebook Page or in the comments below!) so she can make the decision on carrying them or not.

Desert Sunset

Desert Sunset

Desert Sun is a medium bronze jelly base with scattered holo throughout.  This is a slightly textured polish that can be smoothed out in 2 coats of top coat.  Look at the holo sparkle in it!  I didn’t even need a lamp to show it off.  I used 2 coats for this photo and 1 coat of top coat

Desert Sunset side

Desert Sunset CU

In A Violet Haze

In A Violet Haze

In A Violet Haze is a silvery white with a violet shimmer and holographic micro glitter scattered throughout.  I used 2 coats for this.  Like Desert Sunset, this has a mild texture and needs 2 coats of top coat to smooth over.  Also like Desert Sunset – the holographic glittered needed no help sparkling through!

Now we’re going to move onto shades that Color4Nails currently has in stock!  Again, if you like the 2 above and want to see more of them and colors like them – let her know!

Sudden Impulse

Sudden Impulse Full

Sudden Impulse is a reddish coral linear holographic polish with a jelly like finish.  Although it’s jelly like, Sudden Impulse is completely opaque in just 2 coats.

Sudden Impulse CU AL

Caribbean Holiday

Caribbean Holiday full

Caribbean Holiday is a STUNNING vibrant aqua blue linear holographic.  I used 2 coats for this photo.

Alternate Dimension

Alternate Dimension

Alternate Dimension is a orangey coral jelly linear holographic.  Much like Sudden Impulse, this had GREAT opacity and I had full coverage in 2 coats.

Alternate Dimension CU

Flamingo Dancer

Flamingo Dancer

Flamingo Dancer is my #1 of the group.  This is a beautiful, rich rose pink metallic finish linear holographic.  The finish on it is completely like a standard metallic.  You need to make sure the first coat is dry before you apply the second or you may have slight dragging of the first coat.  I used 2 coats for this photo.

Flash Diamond

Flash Diamond

Flash Diamond is a metallic silver linear holographic polish.  I used 2 coats for this photo, and like Flamingo Dancer – make sure the first coat is dry before applying the second to avoid dragging.

Flash Diamon AL


All of the JOSS FX Affinite shades have an amazing holographic quality to them regardless of whether they are linear or scattered.  I love the range of finishes on them as well, they go from lightly textured to jelly to metallic – yet no matter what the finish they are amazing.

Price: $9.00 each

I definitely want the two new shades! Other than the silver, because how many silver holos do I *really* need, I want them all, but the two new ones are crazy pretty.

This looks like a high quality product and the color selection is beautiful. I would ask to pre-order and I’d wait as long as I had to. Some shop will carry Joss Lacquer and I am sure it will be a successful line.
