Literary Lacquers A Court of Feels and Sparkle Collection Swatches and Review

After a pause Literary Lacquers is back! The reopening of the store coincided with a new release, A Court of Feels and Sparkle Collection, inspired by Sarah J. Maas' series A Court of Thorns and Roses. The polishes are a tribute to the seven courts of the High Fae of Prythian. Let's have a look!

Literary Lacquers A Court of Feels and Sparkle Collection


Literary Lacquers Adriata is an aqua with blue holo microglitter and white, green, and blue iridescent flakes. I wore it in three thin coats, but two will do and it had a quick dry time. It has a bit of texture due to the flakes and glitters, but smooths with top coat. 

The Summer Court is home to the beautiful city of Adriata nestled in its half moon bay.

Price: $10

Literary Lacquers Autumn Fire is a cordovan red-brown with copious holo shimmer and red microglitter. I wore it in three thin coats, but two will work. It dried quickly with some texture which can be perfectly smoothed with a couple layers of top coat.

Fire is the power of the High Fae that reside in the Autumn Court.

Price: $12

Literary Lacquers Court of Dreams is a black with blue-to-magenta duochrome microflakes, holo microflakes, and silver microflakes. Again, I wore this in three thin coats, but two are enough. It dries quickly and perfectly smooth.

The Night Court is home to the mysterious and dark Rhysand and his hot muscular Illyrian warriors (ahem). No spoilers but fans self anyway.

Literary Lacquers Cursebreaker is a white with gold-to-green duochrome microflake shimmer. I wore it in three thin coats. It dried quickly and has a bit thicker texture than the other polishes.

The mysterious Day Court is home to Helion Spell-Cleaver, his power of Cursebreaking is vital to something I can’t tell you about because it’s a spoiler. These are hard to write, y’all, just read the books, they’re good.

Literary Lacquers High Lady of Winter is a gray-blue with holo shimmer, white, silver, and blue-to-violet duochrome iridescent flakes. I wore it in three thin coats, but two will do. Quick dry time and a little texture due to the flakes, which smooths with top coat.

This polish inspired by the frozen Winter Court is a little shout out to the fandom and my girl Vivianne, may her voice be heard.

Literary Lacquers Starfall is a dark navy with strong holo shimmer, black holo microglitters, and green-to-blue duochrome iridescent flakes. I wore it in three thin coats, but two will do. Great, fast-drying formula with some texture due to the microglitters. I got it glassy smooth with two layers of top coat.

I really wanted to call this polish My Other Ride is an Illyrian Warrior, but I decided to go with the more sedate Starfall. Starfall is a holiday celebrated in the Winter Court on a night where star spirits migrate across the sky.
If you want a My Other Ride is an Illyrian Warrior name label, let me know in your order notes and I’ll hook you up!

Literary Lacquers Sunstone Palace is a foil with pale, warm pink-to-gold duochrome shimmer and flakes.  I wore it in three thin coats, but two will do. Good, fast-drying formula.

The books’ action only visits the Dawn court for a short period of time, but the description of the breathtaking palace inspired this lacquer.

Literary Lacquers Veiled in Roses is a bubblegum pink with holo shimmer and pink holo  and iridescent microglitters. I wore this in three thin coats, but two will do.  Good dry time. This has a bit of texture due to the glitter, but smooths out with top coat.

Inspired by the Spring Court’s beautiful manor house, an alabaster estate covered in roses and ivy, surrounded by meadows and forests in a perpetual springtime.

Literary Lacquers A Court of Feels and Sparkle Collection is available in the shop now for the individual prices listed above or the full collection, plus bonus free Starfall for $70. That's a great deal for eight polishes, and I think Starfall and Autumn Fire are my favorites - they are SO sparkly! Have you read the series? Any favorites here?
