Literary Lacquers Community Collection, Part III

Press Sample

Good evening, dear readers! I hope this post finds you well, and you have been enjoying the weekend. For this evening's post, I wanted to finish sharing my swatches and thoughts on the Literary Lacquers Community Collection. The other polishes from the Community Collection can be viewed here and here. So I'm not repeating myself throughout this post, I used three thin coats of each polish and topped them off with HK Girl top coat for these swatches.

Thermodynamics is not my favorite subject matter, but this polish is hot! ;)

This polish looks beautiful in the bottle, but it just came to life as soon as I put it on my nails. I expected to like it, but I was completely blown away by it! A pinky-red jelly with blue glass fleck, this stunner was designed by Sparkly Vernis. It is the sort of colour that I tend to wear primarily during the summer,  and you can bet I'll be sporting this on my toes all summer long! Impeccable formula and gorgeous, this is a definite must-have from this collection. 

Shift of Fate
I have always loved green polishes, and this green to gold shifty holo is a welcome addition to my polish collection. Designed by Olivia of Morning Nailspiration, the formula on Shift of Fate was flawless, and this shade is perfect for the spring.

My Red Hair
Be still, my beating heart! It's no secret that orange polishes have a special place in my heart, and this colour shifting shimmer orange through copper into red beauty designed by Debbie of The Crumpet is amazing! If you love orange and copper, this fiery beauty will win your heart. I don't believe I have ever seen a red and orange duochrome polish, and I am *thrilled* that Debbie and Amy decided to make this happen!

I absolutely adore these polishes, and the rest of the collection as well! There is such an assortment of colours and finishes to choose from, and you just cannot go wrong with any polish made by Literary Lacquers. 

These and many other amazing polishes can be purchased at the Literary Lacquers etsy shop. Also, keep an eye on the Literary Lacquers Facebook page for shop announcements.

Which one would you choose? 

Until next time, dear readers, have a great night and enjoy the rest of the weekend!
