Literary Lacquers - As You Wish Trio
Just a few weeks after releasing her Alice in Lacquerland collection Literary Lacquers is at it again with a trio just in time for Valentines Day. This Collection was named by a member of the Fan group and it's like they were reading my mind. I am a HUGE Princess Bride fan. So much so that my I'm having my friend who is officiating my wedding this fall open with this famous line...
Speaking of Mawage, that's the name of the LE topper from this trio. It will be available for the entire month of February.
Color: A clear based polish filled with holographic hex glitter and heart-shaped glitters. Shown here over Sinful Colors Whiteboard.
Application: When trying to apply this like a typical polish I did need to do a bit of fishing for the heart glitters. The holographic and pink hex glitters came out easily and were abundant on the nail. Rather than play around too much and have thick layers of this on my nail I decided to sponge it on. As you can see I was able to get a good amount of coverage this way without being over the top. I did need to fish a little for the hearts but it was minimal. Shown as 1 sponged coat plus top coat.
Typically I'm not a fan of the shaped glitter in polish. You will notice that I have maybe one other polish on my blog with them in it. That being said I actually like this one. The shapes are not overpowering and blend well with the hex glitters for a fun look. I don't see myself wearing this a lot but it is a great polish for Valentines.
Color: White matte polish with pink glitter and shimmer.
Application: Smooth formula with even application. This polish is a bit on the sheer side and I had quite the VNL after 2 coats. Opacity builds up nicely and I was able to get full coverage after 3 coats. Shown as 3 coats plus a matte top coat.
Now, this is a polish I can see myself wearing a lot, especially in the spring when all flowers are blooming. I think it also makes a great base for nail art although I didn't add any this time around. I did add a glossy top coat however so you can see what it looks like with a little shine.
The Man in Black
Color: Black matte nail polish with pink glitter and shimmer.
Application: Smooth application but goes on a bit sheer with the first coat seeming to have a sparse amount of glitter. Builds up beautifully to reach full opacity with 2 coats and a nice amount of glitter. Shown as 2 coats plus a matte top coat.
This is another beauty that I can see myself wearing. While I like Princess Buttercup better matte I actually like this one better with a glossy top coat. Check it out below.
Which version do you like better glossy or matte? The As You Wish trio is releasing Friday, Feb 2nd at noon Mountain time. Polishes will be $10 each or $27 for the trio while supplies last.
