Blush is turning 3!
For their special day they're releasing a special anniversary polish on May 31st at 6pm Central at blushlacquers.com

Princessa
An off-white blush toned base with a soft pink to gold shifting shimmer and gold flakes.
As usual, the formula is amazing, the brush is amazing, what's not to love here? Shown is two coats with topcoat. If painted thinner, this could be one of those translucent/natural french look type polishes. Love the versatility in this!

Literary Lacquers: A Court of Feels and Sparkle Collection

Literary Lacquers is back with a collection of 7 new polishes (Plus a special limited edition gift with purchase polish) inspired by the Sarah J. Mass series A Court of Thorns and Roses. This collection will take you on a journey through the 7 courts of the High Fae of Prythian. Amy thinks everyone should absolutely read these books, so her descriptions are short to ensure they are spoiler-free!

The full collection is available now at https://www.etsy.com/shop/LiteraryLacquer.
Receive Starfall Limited Edition polish as a free gift with $50 total product purchase (before shipping).

Each polish is shown in two coats with topcoat. The formula was good on each of them. Some of the heavier glitter finishes were slightly thicker, if you like a more fluid polish just add a few drops of thinner.


Veiled in Roses – Rosy pink packed with holographic and opalescent microglitter
Inspired by the Spring Court’s beautiful manor house, an alabaster estate covered in roses and ivy, surrounded by meadows and forests in a perpetual springtime.

High Lady of Winter – Soft grey holo with white, silver, and blue flakies
This polish, inspired by the frozen Winter Court, is a little shout out to the fandom and Vivianne, may her voice be heard

Sunstone Palace – Delicate metallic that shifts from copper to rose
The books’ action only visits the Dawn court for a short period of time, but the description of the breathtaking palace inspired this lacquer

I think this polish has a few large flakes in it, as I can see that sort of shape on a few nails.

Cursebreaker – Bright white gold metallic with a subtle green iridescence
The mysterious Day Court is home to Helion Spell-Cleaver, his power of Cursebreaking is vital to something we can’t tell you about because it’s a spoiler.

LE Gift with $50 purchase (pre-shipping) – Starfall

Deep navy holo with microglitter and opalescent green flakes
Amy really wanted to call this polish My Other Ride is an Illyrian Warrior, but she decided to go with the more sedate Starfall. Starfall is a holiday celebrated in the Winter Court on a night where star spirits migrate across the sky.
If you want a My Other Ride is an Illyrian Warrior name label, let her know in your order notes and she’ll hook you up!

My favorites of this collection are Autumn Fire and the LE, Starfall. Starfall has a very similar finish as her Rebecca trio from 2014.

Chimney Sweep
This soot-inspired silvery gray is filled with silver sparkle and holographic microflakes. If you are ready to step in time with Bert, this color is all you need for a little chimney sweep luck. Shown is two coats with topcoat, formula is easy to apply.

Supercal
A bright blue based multichrome shimmer that shifts between blue, turquoise, purple, and gold. Also includes pink to green shifting aurora shimmer. The dancers in the musical use this nickname for Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, and a shimmering multichrome seemed perfect for something that can’t quite be described. Shown is two coats with topcoat, formula is easy to apply.

Rosy Cheeks
A beautiful full coverage red cream that leans slightly pink. In the advertisement for a nanny written by the Banks children, they specifically requested rosy cheeks and Mary Poppins certainly fit their description. Shown is two coats with topcoat, formula is buttery and perfect. Now that we have a beautiful one coat black and now a perfect red, I'm waiting for Nikki to create the perfect white cream. ;)

Feed the Birds
An incredibly sparkly polish with a base of gold shimmers, gold microflakes, and holographic gold glitters that is topped with a rainbow of multichrome flakies. Feed the Birds is inspired by the bird-filled golden snow globe from the original movie. Shown in one coat over Rosy Cheeks. A second coat of this would likely be opaque - wear it alone or over something!

Spoonful of Sugar
A holographic topper that is the perfect sweet addition to any mani. Holographic microflakes mix together with sugar crystal white glitters for a unique take on the classic holo topper. Shown in one coat over both Chimney Sweep and then Supercal.
