Lollipop Posse: July Tarot


Lollipop's newest July Tarot shades launch on Sunday, July 14th, 8pm Central at lollipopposselacquer.com
**All Tarot descriptions adapted from biddytarot.com by Lollipop Posse Lacquer

xoxoJen's swatch of Lollipop Posse Tarot

Justice is an olive leaning, fern green crelly that suspends red/gold multichrome pigment, red/orange/gold/green shifting iridescent flakes, and silver holographic microflakes.

When drawn upright, the Justice card represents fairness, truth, and a logically ordered mind. She often appears at a time in your life when you must make an important choice with the potential for long-term repercussions. Be sure to keep in mind your well-being and the well-being of others when you are considering your options! Follow your intuition and be sure to make decisions that you can stand by in the long term. You will be held accountable for your actions, so make sure to align your choices with the greatest, highest good.






Strength is a royal violet crelly filled with very fine turquoise contrasting shimmer.

The Strength card represents many things, including courage, determination, and power - but not those of your physical body; rather, when drawn upright, Strength reminds you of your inner strength and the human spirit’s ability to overcome any obstacle. You have stamina and persistence, and you are balanced with underlying patience and inner calm. Others may underestimate your power because it is so “invisible”, but don’t let that make your forget your true inner strength and fortitude.

The Star is a pale, matte lavender shade filled with violet-blue shifting shimmer.

The Star represents your time of reprieve after a period of turmoil and destruction. You have endured many challenges, and stripped yourself of the limiting beliefs that have held you back. It is time to realize your true self; that person who is at your inner core, beneath all of the layers. The Star brings a renewed sense of hope and faith, and a sense that you truly belong to and are blessed by the Universe. All of your opportunities are right there, waiting for you.

I am shook the house!
The glow in this polish is other-worldly! I'm showing matte swatches first since that is its intended finish, and then with topcoat. My photos don't do it justice. Trust me polish lovers, and just order it. You'll be glad you did.

The World is a multichrome crelly that shifts between green, red, gold, and blue at extreme angles.

When The World card appears to you, you are glowing with a sense of wholeness, completion, and achievement. You have finally accomplished your goal or purpose; you are in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing. Don’t forget to reflect on your journey and honor your achievements. All of the trials and tribulations of your travels have shaped you into the strong, wise, and experience person that you are now.

KBShimmer & Emily Liebert Collab

KBShimmer creates vibrant and distinctive nail polishes that spark confidence and self-expression. Bestselling author Emily Liebert writes compulsively readable novels that plumb the depths of female relationships.

Together, the two have collaborated on an exclusive duo of polishes inspired by Liebert’s new book PRETTY REVENGE, a novel of psychological suspense that explores just how far someone will go for vengeance.




The polishes, a daring red and a shimmering silver, are named after Liebert’s two main characters, Kerrie and Jordana, and reflect their personalities and dualities. Wear red if you’re feeling bold and dangerous. Try silver for a look that’s dazzlingly chic.

Kerrie
(Shown in two coats with topcoat, formula is good.)
I would describe this as a red linear holo. It is a straight up red.

Jordana
(Shown in two coats with topcoat, formula is good.)
I would describe this as a sparkly, silvery holo made with large pigment; there is no texture when I squish the polish between my fingers. I can't speak to removal since I use a peel off base.

Are you a Kerrie? A Jordana? Or both? Keep people guessing this summer, with the PRETTY REVENGE duo available now. (set excludes book)
