Literary Lacquers - Alice in Lacquerland Collection


     Today I have the Alice in Lacquerland Collection from Literary Lacquers and I am so excited to share it with you! This long-awaited collection is filled with fun and sparkle just like the story that inspired it. Get ready to set your alarms because this collection releases today Dec 26th at noon mt and I'm sure it's one you won't want to miss. 
   
     This will be a long post with a ton of pictures! I have 6 collection polishes and 1 gift with purchase to share so let's get some particulars out of the way right now. Each polish is shown as 2 coats plus topcoat and I photographed them all in my lightbox using daylight LED bulbs. Let's jump right in shall we.

Tulgey Wood

Rich-caramel-brown-linear-holographic-nail-polish

     Color: A rich caramel brown linear holographic nail polish with copper and gold glass flecks.

     Application: Tulgey Wood has a smooth formula with even coverage. I was surprised at how opaque this is. I only had a slight VNL after 1 coat. This polish builds up nicely to a perfect opacity after 2 coats.

Six Impossible Things

Burnt-orange-scattered-holographic-nail-polish

     Color: A scattered holographic glitter nail polish in a burnt orange base with gold and copper micro glitters. This color reminds me of the bittersweet plant that used to grow in my yard as a child. 

     Application: The formula for this one is a bit thin on the first coat and can be patchy if applied thinly. Six Impossible Things builds up nicely after 2 coats but still shows a slight VNL that's more evident in my photos than when looking with the naked eye.

Grin Without a Cat

Purple-multi-chrome-nail-polish

     Color: Purple multi-chrome polish that shifts from purple to gold to pink with magenta shimmer and microglitter. This one doesn't have an obvious color shift to it which makes it unique for multi-chrome polishes. At first glance, I actually thought it was a shimmer finish because I was only getting a light to dark purple shift until I moved my hand around. Then I was able to get the hints of gold to appear. 

     Application: This polish went on a bit uneven for me on the first coat and wanted to pull away at my tips. I'm not entirely sure if this was because of the polish itself or the new sticky base coat that I'm trying out. As you can see I was left with a smooth even finish after 2 coats but there is still some shrinkage at the tips.

The Golden Afternoon

Yellow-Gold-Scattered-holographic-nail-polish

     Color: Yellow gold scattered holographic nail polish with a hint of linear holo thrown in.

     Application: Smooth and even application with the first coat being quite sheer. The Golden Afternoon does build up quite nicely to full opacity with two coats.

Curiouser and Curiouser!

Sky-Blue-Scattered-holographic-nail-polish

     Color: Sky blue scattered holographic nail polish.

     Application: Smooth formula and very opaque. I had 99% full coverage after one medium think coat. Builds up quite nicely to complete opacity after two coats.

Always Tea Time

Medium-pink-linear-holographic-nail-polish-with-scattered-holographic-glass-flecks

     Color: Medium pink linear holographic nail polish with scattered holographic glass flecks. 

     Application: Smooth and even application and a very opaque polish. I would almost consider this a one coater. Builds up to a perfect opacity after two coats.

Be What You Would Seem to Be

Pale-purple-scattered-holographic-nail-polish

     Color: Pale purple polish with scattered holographic glitter with a hint of linear holo. 

     Application: Even application but a bit sheer on the first coat. Builds up nice and smoothly for full opacity after two coats.
