Hey everyone, I know my blogging has been incredibly irregular lately and I do have an explanation for that, which I will explain at the end of this post. All good news I assure you!
But today I've have some gorgeous polishes to share with you from Literary Lacquers. Literary Lacquers hosts a monthly Pop Up in her Etsy shop now which features a new polish and rereleases several older polishes. This month the Magical March Pop Up shop will be open from Friday March 3 at 8 p.m. MST to Sunday March 5 midnight MST.
Lets get to the gorgeous polishes shall we?!
First up is Literary Lacquers Amortentia, the new polish of this bunch. This is a lovely champagne rose gold almost metallic holo with glass flakies. This was inspired by the love potion in Harry Potter and designed with Rachel McNulty for her wedding. The formula on this was great and was applied easily in two coats for opacity.
This polish is a gorgeous gold that totally stands out in my collection. A lovely hue that is perfect for any time of year. This new beauty is not necessarily limited edition, but she has no current plans to stock it again after this pop up so you might not want to miss out now!
This is Literary Lacquers Midsummer Night's Dream, an old favorite with a new formula. This is a deep shimmery blue with small gold square, black hex and holographic gold hex glitters. I love this glitter bomb, it reminds me of a magical fairy book night sky. This applied easily in two coats, but as it is a glitter bomb, it may need two coats of top coat for a smooth finish.
This stunning beauty is Literary Lacquers Color of Magic (formerly titled Octarine). This is a gorgeous mauve-y pink linear holo with glass flecks and flakies. The glass flecks give this a lilac glow that makes this a very characteristic pink holo in my collection. I just love it. This polish was inspired by the Terry Pratchett Discworld series. This also had a great formula that was opaque in two easy coats.
This is Literary Lacquers Felix Felicis, inspired by Harry Potter. This is liquid gold flakies and glass flecks for a gold, in-your-face polish. The glass flecks in this give it a slightly pink glow. The formula on this particular polish was on the thick side, so take care with application. I used two thin coats to achieve opacity.
This is Literary Lacquers Avada Kedavra, also inspired by Harry Potter. This is a gorgeous black matte base packed with gold and green glitter. This dries quickly to a surprisingly flat base and looks great as a matte or with a shiny top coat, I've shown both for your viewing pleasure. Takes two coats for opacity.
And last but not least is Literary Lacquers Mirror of Galadriel, inspired by Lord of the Rings. This is a gorgeous silver linear mega glitter holo, it has all microglitter and holo pigment. It is just one lovely rainbow and is one of my most favorite polishes that I use quite often. I used two coats here, but I think three coats looks best for opacity.
Now for the personal note as to why it's been more silent here lately.
Yup, lots of life changes for me coming up. I'm moving in two weeks, I'm just getting out of the first trimester and hopefully with that new boost of energy I can dive back in to the nail blogging world! My husband and I are beyond the moon as we've wanted to leave the Bay Area for quite some time and we are upgrading from 740 square feet to 2,500 square feet! It's a dream home and perfect for raising my new family! And the move is allowing me to be a new mom for awhile.
Anyway, enough about me, don't forget to check out those Literary Lacquers this weekend!
