Chaos & Crocodiles: A special gift

Sarey of Chaos & Crocodiles sent a special polish gift to me to brighten my day. It was a surprise, and I can see that she put a lot of thought and time into making it especially for me.

I love the lavender shade of purple and the holo / coppery flakie finish.

The labeling is a sweet sentiment, a single purple heart shaped sticker that sparkles.

The formula is fantastic, smooth, opaque in one coat. I love the bottle, cap and brush too.

If you haven't tried a C&C polish, you absolutely should on next restock.

Sarey,
Thank you again for your generosity and thoughtfulness to me, a complete stranger.
I will never forget how much you care, and that you helped lift my spirits during a difficult time.

Literary Lacquers: Duo and Long May She Reign

This Literary Lovers duo, Lestat and Louis, was designed with Nichole Costa of Bedlam Beauty after she and Amy geeked out over both having cruised by Anne Rice’s house in the Garden District in New Orleans.

Lestat: A saturated lilac metallic linear holo. Icy and cool as the vampire himself. I wore two coats with topcoat. It's super metallic/chromey looking. I love it!

Louis: Black and green glitter topper. Black hair, green eyes, the vampire with a guilty conscience. I wore one coat over Long May She Reign. No digging or fussy application, what you see on the nail in the photos is exactly how it landed when painting in a regular way.

Long May She Reign was inspired by Cate Cropp's obsessive love for green nail polish and her ability to keep tempting Amy with screencaps of wildfire explosions from Game of Thrones. Amy finally gave in and made this polish. It’s named for events that do not yet occur in the world of the books.

Long May She Reign: Screaming chartreuse microglitter crelly. Inspired by Cersei's revenge. I wore two coats with topcoat. It's super vibrant and sparkly and dries quite smooth for a microglitter polish.

The formulas on all of these was fantastically smooth and easy to apply. You can get these starting July 25th at the Literary Lacquers shop.

Literary Lacquers: Cream Duo

The Othello duo is A crème duo named by Trish Cowart Krulin in a Literary (&) Lacquers contest. I absolutely love the two shades, their formula is buttery smooth and opaque in two coats. These will both be available on July 25th at the Literary Lacquers Shop.

If Thou Hast Eyes To See: A sea-green crème polish

While I love a beautiful cream polish on it's own, I couldn't stop the urge to stamp over them. They were both screaming for designs from my Vivid Lacquer custom plate!
