Literary Lacquers took a brief break and has transformed her business plan to do monthly 'pop up' style shops. With that, the plan is to rotate several core colors along with a few new colors each month. Two new shades will debut on February 4, which I've reviewed below. In addition to these two polishes, the following core shades will be stocked: Desdemona's Handkerchief, Bluestocking Romance, Cyan-tifically Proven, Salmon Chanted Evening, Breathing Dreams Like Air and If Thou Hast Eyes to See.
The Happy Prince: Sparkling sapphire blue crelly with a subtle pink shimmer. Designed with Jennifer Sky Walker to celebrate her 5th blogiversary. The Happy Prince is inspired by the Oscar Wilde story of the same name. It tells the tale of a gilded statue with sapphires for eyes and a ruby in the hilt of his sword, the Happy Prince, who convinces a swallow to… well… you should just read it for yourselves. Have tissues.
Since it is a jelly, I wore three thin coats for opacity. The formula is easy to apply and slightly textured from the micro-glitters in it.
“Hope” Is the Thing with Feathers: Pink amethyst linear holo with blue shimmer.
Amy shares some insight about this polish, "Personally, I have been in need of a little hope to get me through these last few months. I created this polish to cheer myself up, and I hope that it will breathe a little fresh air into each of your lives as well. It’s inspired by the poem “Hope” is the thing with feathers, by Emily Dickinson."
Absolutely stunning! The blue shimmer really shows and flashes through the holo, together the pink base and flashes of blue appear like a purpley polish. I wore two buttery smooth coats and topcoat.
Amy's formula wears like iron on me, and these polishes are no exception. If you've not tried LitLaq before, you totally should!
