Swatch & Review: Literary Lacquer – August Release


Hey y’all and welcome back! So who checked out the solar eclipse yesterday? I tried but was afraid that I was going to damage my eyes because I didn’t have the correct protective glasses. There was so much media coverage and posts plastered on social media, that I feel like I didn’t miss a thing. In other news, I made it through my daughter’s and hubby’s Leo Birthday Bash on Saturday. It was a day filled with family, friends, food and fun….the way it was intended to be.

But we’re not quite done celebrating, because Literary Lacquers is releasing 2 LEs this month including a Birthday LE. To help celebrate, there will be 10 returning shades making an appearance for the occasion. 

Returning shades:

84 Charing Cross Road * Cyan-tifically Proven * Shadow Between Us * Je Reviens * Rebecca, Always Rebecca * Afterglow * Tia Wanna * Arousal * Curious Yellow * English Voodoo

So get your dancin shoes ready folks, these polishes are ready to party!!

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

Birthday LE –  $12

Unspeakably Desirable

Inspired by a quote from Mark Twain’s published journals “There is a charm about the forbidden that makes it unspeakably desirable.” – Mark Twain

It’s a bright coral mega glitter holo with copper, gold, and rose microglitter. These bottles will be numbered.

Book Club LE – $12

A Thousand Different Strokes of Light

“In our world of shadows, there is no black and white but a thousand different strokes of light.” from The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman. Designed and named by Sharon Wood.

Overall Thoughts – Literary Lacquer – August Release

Formula / Application: a slightly thicker formula but nothing that caused application issues. I quite liked it because it I ended up only having to apply 2 coasts for no VNL. Amazing coverage and normal dry time.

Opacity: swatches shown in 2 coats

Price: Cremes, Glitters, Shimmers – $10, Holos and Multichromes – $12

Availability: August 24 at 12pm mt (PLEASE NOTE – LEs available through September 8)

Overall: Both of the LEs are must haves in my opinion. Unspeakably Desirable is fun, bright, exciting and really makes you want to get up and dance. A Thousand Different Strokes of Light is the opposite. Its calm, soothing and while the shimmer shows it’s daring side, the polish overall is reserved. So whether your going out for a night on the town of working in the office, these polishes will make for a great mani for either.
