Literary Lacquers Post 1 of 3: The Holos!! (Must See PLUM Holo!)

I was lucky enough to receive 5 polishes to review from the brand new collection, The Good Parts, by Literary Lacquers - releasing TOMORROW, March 18!

I don't usually take 3 posts to show you 5 polishes, but this collection has such a range, from holos to jellys to crellys, that I decided to stretch out the eye-candy.

First, the holos!!!  There's been a lot of issues with some sub-standard holos (ahem, CG), but in my opinion, indie makers like Amy are putting the mainstreamers to SHAME.  Look at this polish!

Plum holo say what?!


Oops, I got ahead of myself - can you blame me? Quick pic of the whole group! They came packaged very sweetly:



Okay, back to the polishes! This amazing plum holo - honestly, have you ever seen a true plum holo? Most are either brighter purple or so black that you can't see the purple. This is PLUM. And it's lovely and opaque at two coats. The name of this polish is: If It Pleases You and was inspired by The Claim of Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice, published in 1983.






Next is a charcoal holo named Laters, Baby. It was inspired by 50 Shades of Grey. 

I am probably the only woman in the US who has not read this book but I haven't! Sorry, LOL. I've also never read or watched anything Twilight related, weird huh? 

 Anyway, Laters, Baby is PERFECT, opaque in two coats and just super sparkly!


Come closer:

These polishes are my first experience with Literary Lacquer and I am very impressed by all 5 - these, especially. If It Pleases You is by far my favorite of the 5, but I think the rest are all tied for second, LOL.

Find Literary Lacquer on etsy HERE!



  1. Those are so on my wish list now. LOVE THEM!

  2. Hahaha your not alone never twilight never 50 shades either. Im a potter head through and through but man these polishes rock!

  3. Right, I definitely need Laters, Baby!

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:

Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.

Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.

Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?

I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!

The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!


PS: Fuck Trump!
