Literary Lacquers: The Needle's Bite

The Needle's Bite - A vampy mysterious metallic gunmetal linear holo with an antique gold highlight shimmer, designed with Alex and Eli Bacon-Leslie and inspired by the Newsflesh series by Mira Grant.

I wore two coats with topcoat but this polish was very near opaque in just one coat. It applied easily and so far no chipping after four days of wear. I received a compliment yesterday from the cashier at a restaurant. In their lighting, this polish looked greenish. It's definitely a morpher depending on the lighting situation.

The Needle’s Bite to raise funds for JDRF

SANTA FE, New Mexico ﹘ With Type 1 Diabetes, every day can feel like a succession of needles. Each day is filled with finger pricks, blood tests and insulin injections.

The Needle’s Bite, developed in collaboration between Literary Lacquers and Alex and Eli Bacon-Leslie, will raise funds for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

A big fan of the “Newsflesh” series by Mira Grant, Eli Bacon-Leslie chose to name the polish “The Needle’s Bite” because of his experiences living with Type 1 Diabetes and endless days of needles and blood tests, something the characters in the book could empathize with. The characters in the “Newsflesh” series live in a world of constant needle pricks and blood tests, but in their case, the tests are for zombie amplification, not blood glucose.

Each bottle of The Needle’s Bite will be sold for $13 and $5 from each bottle will be donated to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The polish will be sold from October 17, 2016 to November 16, 2016.
