Swatch & Review: Literary Lacquer – Alice in Lacquerland


Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, the real name of Lewis Carroll, was the author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland which arose in the early 1860’s after a boat trip on the river Isis with Reverend Robinson Duckworth and the sisters Alice, Lorina and Edith Liddell. This infamous date is known as ‘The Golden Afternoon’. Many sites say, Dodgson invented the story while he was telling it,” which in my personal opinion are often the best stories.

150-ish years later, this fairy-tale is still a classic! With characters including Alice, Caterpillar, Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts and White Rabbit, it’s no wonder Literary Lacquer chose this story as inspiration for their upcoming 6-piece collection, Alice in Lacquerland. This collection releases the day after Christmas, so you’ll get to enjoy opening gifts and spending time with family and then take some time for yourself to do a little holiday shopping. And guess what….. there is also a Limited Edition Gift with Purchase (LE GwP) polish too!! Are you excited yet?
