Literary Lacquers August 2017 Limited Edition Polishes


Literary Lacquers A Thousand Different Strokes of Light is the book club limited edition. It is a taupe with linear holo shimmer and blue-to-magenta duochrome iridescent flakes and microflakes. I wore it in three thin coats, but two might do. A single coat gives a lovely, sheer, neutral effect and there is no streaking at all - this one is smooth and even! It is a little on the thick side, but that is not very noticeable. The flakes made it a bit more intensive to remove than a standard polish but it was very manageable. I love how it is a nice neutral with a special flash.
Here is what Amy had to say:

“In our world of shadows, there is no black and white but a thousand different strokes of light.” from The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman. Designed and named by Sharon Wood.

Literary Lacquers Unspeakably Desirable is the birthday polish. Happy birthday, Amy! Bottles of this polish will be numbered. It is a coral linear holo jelly with copper, rose, and gold holo microglitters. Man does this have some flash! Perfect formula, with a very slight amount of texture that is easily smoothed with top coat. I wore it in three thin coats but two were enough. This was more challenging to remove due to the packed in glitter, but I did not have to soak it off or use a peel off base coat, so it should be fine for sensitive nails. If you want holo flash, this polish is for you! Here is what Amy had to say:

Inspired by a quote from Mark Twain’s published journals “There is a charm about the forbidden that makes it unspeakably desirable.” - Mark Twain
