When I opened this package from Literary Lacquers, angels sang!!!!

Amy has created a 10 piece collection called the Community Collection, inspired by bloggers and polish friends. I was lucky enough to get mine, As The Waltz Was Ending, in November, and I blogged about it here! In case you forgot (although, I have NO idea how you could), check it out in all it's holo pink glory:


Unbeknownst to me, Amy went ahead and sent me THE REST OF THE COLLECTION!!!!!!! Shot of the whole gang:

Let's go in order of my pic, shall we??

 First up, My Red Hair, two coats alone.  This has a great formula but Amy is tweaking it to make it even better.  I love the copper to pink shift:

Thermodynamics is next.  BEAUTIFUL cherry red, hot pink, I dont even know, amazing jelly with pink and blue looking flakies :

And over Wet&Wild Pom Pom Kelly and over Out The Door Black Hole:


Phenomenal Woman - oooh, oohh, sweet wine colored holo.  This is three coats, and flawless as all of LL holos are! I expect nothing less than perfection, and this is IT:

Shift of Fate.....................WOW.  I love this polish.  Three coats, stunning.  The green to gold shift is out of this world, the holo is so pretty and...Wow. Just, yes.  A whole lot of YES.  By far and away, one of my favorites of this collection:

Camille Sepharial D'Artigo is a purple jelly with black, purple, and holo glitters.  This is 3 coats and it's so much shinier in person!

Goodnight Moon, first, three coats alone - no undies, no topcoat.  This is truly a 'jelly sandwich in a bottle' and it has the perfect name!  The moons are so easy to get out of the bottle, you don't even have to look for them with the brush, just dab it in and get this:

And over 2 coats of Camille.  Easy galaxy nails right here:

Love You Forever is a super pretty blue holo.  Love the color!  I want to sponge some clouds over this next time, it's a lovely day sky blue color.  Three coats, perfect formula, lovely holo:

As The Waltz Was Ending.   Three coats, no topcoat.  Perfect.  I'll spare you more drooling and excessive adoration.  You know I love this polish, right?? :)

84, Charing Cross Road.  How gorgeous is this?  It is copper, it is neutral, it is gorgeous.  This is three coats with topcoat because I wore it when  was done swatching and did my other hand.  (Sidenote: You know it's THE ONE when the blogger ends the review with it so she can keep wearing it. AmIRight?)

I tried my first gradient with Waltz, of course. I thought it came out quite charming!


Sidewalk's End.  This is two coats over one thin coat of NYC Sidewalkers (or something like that. It's a good grey).   Sidewalk's End is the same perfect holo formula.  It is sheer though, with a strong silver base, so I recommend a grey creme (ta-daa) or something similar to showcase and not overpower the base:

AAAAAAAAHHHH. Are they not ALL stunning?? Obviously, I have a CLEAR favorite in Waltz, but my other faves are: Shift of Fate and 84, Charing Cross Road. Stunning, stunning, stunning. If you have yet to check out Literary Lacquers, you NNEEEDDD to rightnow.
