Literary Lacquers Nail Polish Review and Swatches

Literary Lacquers More Like Fire Than Light

More Like Fire Than Light –  a juicy orange linear holographic polish.  (inspired by Delta of Venus by Anais Nin)

I think this is the first orange holo that I’ve ever seen and the holo is strong in this one!

Literary Lacquers If It Pleases You

If It Pleases You – a deep plum with a touch of brown (or bruise colored if you will) linear holographic polish. (inspired by The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice)

This is a truly beautiful plum purple. Again, the holo is very strong.

Literary Lacquers Laters, Baby

Laters, Baby – a deep charcoal linear holographic nail polish with added fine holographic glitter for extra sparkle love. (inspired by 50 Shades of Grey)

This is my favorite of all the holographics. You can layer it on top of blck but it’s pigmented on its own. I LOVE the holographic glitter in it. It’s very fine and tiny, and I think it gives it that extra special touch. I can stare at the bottle, enraptured by it.

Literary Lacquers Bionic Mmmm Detector

Bionic Mmmm Detector – a black jelly polish packed with aqua, teal, blue and green microglitter. (inspired by Vox by Nicholson Baker)

This is super pretty but it definitely leans green to me.

Literary Lacqurs Woman of Pleasure

Woman of Pleasure – a periwinkle crelly (creme jelly) base with navy and lavender sparkle, matte light pink, large navy hexes, and magenta circle glitter. Full coverage in 2 thicker or 3 thin coats. I like to drag the almost dry brush over the last coat to fully uncover the glitter there for maximum sparkle. The polish has a little more purple in it than it appears in these photos. (inspired by Fanny Hill: Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure written by John Cleland in 1748)

This is a light blue crelly. I think it would probably work best layerd on top of a light blue or white polish, so that you get the full effect of the glitter.

Literary Lacquers What Fools These Mortals Be

What Fools These Mortals Be – This polish is a glitter riot. Holographic pink and purple sparkle form the base, with light green, aqua, fuchsia, and tons of black glitter thrown in for a pageant of color. It looks best in a thin coat or two over another solid color and is truly amazing in the sun! This polish contains a lot of glitter and will require effort to remove; but it’s worth it. (inspired by Puck from Shakespeare, a Midsummer Night’s Dream)

This is such a beautiful glitter. I tihnk those large aqua glitters mixed in with the purple really do it for me. It’s worth it as an accent (or full mani, if you don’t mind removing glitter).
