Swatch & Review: Literary Lacquers – February 2017 Pop Up


It’s finally FriYAY!!! Here we are finishing up our second week of daily posts…* wipes sweat from forehead. Please pause for a second and give yourself a hand for sticking it out and being here with me through all the craziness. Today I am excited to bring some new polishes and returning faves from a from an amazing brand. You know I must be talking about Literary Lacuquers!

With the Etsy shop opening today, Friday, February 3, 8pm MST thru Sunday, February 5, midnight MST, a new pop up shop format will be used for this restock. That’s a full, but short weekend to shop and add these babies to your LitLac collection if you don’t already have them.

I have 7 of 8 polishes today, so let’s jump right into the swatches, as we have A LOT to cover.

**All swatches are done using Commitment Issue Peel-off Base Coat by Vapid and Tonic Topper by Tonic (shiny) and Matte Me by Jior Couture (matte). Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**

Overall Thoughts

Formula: phenomenal!!! Exactly what you’d expect for holos and crèmes.

Application: applied easy and smooth.

Opaqueness: 2 coats for full opacity and no VNL

Availability: Friday, 2/3 @ 8pm MST – Sunday, 2/5, midnight MST. Please note, the two new polishes are not necessarily LE, but there are no current plans to stock them again after this pop up.

Price: New: $10, Returning Faves: $9.50

Overall: the crèmes are stunning but as you know by now, I have a secret love affair with all things crème. The 2 new polishes are gorgeous…Amy really knows a thing or 2 about polish.

You’ll be the hit of any book club with any of these polishes.
