Literary Lacquers - Returning Favorites Review


As you know from my last polish post, Literary Lacaquers is back and releasing quite a few polishes from past collections, and I have two of them for you! This release coincides with the release of the trio so I believe you might as well stock up! The release is Friday, June 23rd at noon MDT. Holographics & Multichromes are $12 each, Shimmers & Cremes are $10 each.


Here is Ether Binge and Porco Rosso.




Ether Binge is a shimmering aquamarine linear holographic polish with blue-green glass flecks.

Ether Binge is inspired by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson.



This is the exact polish that I would create. I love the light blue and the green, it's the perfect combination and such a bright and fun Summer-y polish!



Matte nail macro.



I even love it matte. The holographic disappears some and it is just an aquamarine polish with silvery flecks!



Formula: Good.
Coats for Opacity: Three thin coats.
Ease of Dry: Typical dry time.
Texture: Minimal texture.
Finish: Shine.



Porco Rosso is a deep red linear holo with taupe and gold flakies.

Glossy nail macro.



Porco Rosso is designed by Schette of Schette EssaisBeaut̩ РInspired by Porco Rosso.



Initially, I wasn't sure about this polish. I'm always hesitant about reds at first, but as soon as I swatched the first coat I was hooked. It's the perfect berry red and the gold flakies makes it perfect!
