Literary Lacquers: The "Rebecca" Fall collection - 3 Mega Glitter Holos!

In just a few days, the 10th to be precise, Literary Lacquers is releasing a mini fall collection, 3 "mega glitter holos" inspired by Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.

As for the inspiration, Amy writes:

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier is a suspenseful novel told in the form of a flashback. I struggled with these descriptions because I don’t want to give too much of the story away. This collection is dedicated to Rebecca, the book simply throbs with her presence, but yet we never meet her alive.

Group shot:


Pretty in the bottle, but stunning on the nail. Let's get to the pics!  First up, this is Je Reviens, a deep teal mega glitter holo.  This is three thin coats with topcoat.  Lit Lac polishes have amazing formulas, perfect, and surprisingly quick drying considering how complex and glitter packed each polish is!

The buoy was just opposite, about thirty feet away. There was something written on it. I craned my neck sideways to read the lettering. “Je Reviens.” What a funny name. Not like a boat… “Je Reviens” – “I come back.” Yes, I suppose it was quite a good name for a boat. Only it had not been right for that particular boat which would never come back again. Je Reviens is a deep teal linear holo with holographic sparkle Rebecca was assumed to have drowned in her little sailboat, Je Reviens, despite being known as an excellent sailor. Je Reviens means I come back or I return, is it ironic that the boat is named such? Has the boat disappeared beneath the water for good or does the name herald future events?

Next, this is Rebecca, Always Rebecca.  Swatch shows three thin coats and topcoat.  Another perfect polish, shocker, right? :)

“Rebecca, always Rebecca. Wherever I walked in Manderley, wherever I say, even in my thoughts and in my dreams, I met Rebecca. I knew her figure now, the long slim legs, the small and narrow feet…. I could guess her laughter and her smile. If I heard it, even among a thousand others, I should recognize her voice. Rebecca, always Rebecca. I should never be rid of Rebecca.” Rebecca, Always Rebecca is an eggplant linear holo with holographic sparkle In the novel, our unnamed narrator, a young girl known only to us as The Second Mrs. deWinter becomes obsessed with the supposed perfection of her husbands deceased first wife, Rebecca. She is constantly comparing herself to Rebecca and supposes that everyone that she meets in her new life is also comparing her unfavorably to the accomplished, beautiful and socially connected Rebecca who has been dead for less than a year.

Last but not least, this is Shadow Between Us. I was just thinking I needed a silver holo and this is so it! Swatch shows three thin coats and topcoat. This polish flows on the nail like sparkly lava, it's just perfect.

He put his hands over mine and looked into my face. “Rebecca has won,” he said. I stared at him, my heart beating strangely, my hands suddenly cold beneath his hands. “Her shadow between us all the time,” he said. “Her dammed shadow keeping us from one another. How could I hold you like this, my darling, my little love, with the fear always in my heart that this would happen? I remembered her eyes as she looked at me before she died. I remembered that slow treacherous smile.” Shadow Between Us is a smoky grey linear holo with holographic sparkle Has the shadow and specter of Rebecca and her death poisoned the potential for a happy life and marriage for Maxim and his young wife? In Manderley, the ancestral home of the de Winter’s her presence is felt everywhere. Her abandoned bedroom is the best room in the house. Her preferences are still observed. How can our young narrator ever hope to stand on her own in these circumstances?

Aren't those stunning?? I had to do a bit of nail art with all three, so I thought a striping tape mani might be nice. What do you think?

Of the three, my favorite is Je Reviens...are you surprised? I am a little, I figured Rebecca would be my auto fave, but there's something about Amy's teals that just grab me!

Hopefully, last Saturday you saw my blog post of Luggage For Your Journey, a polish that Amy is donating some of the proceeds of to Alzheimer's Research UK. If you didn't, it's worth a quick pic:


All 4 will launch on 10/10 an NOON MT so set your calendars!

 Luggage, however, is a very limited edition and will only be available for ONE week, so if you love it, don't wait on it. The other 3 from the Rebecca fall collection will be part of Lit Lac's core line.  They are $12 each with the price of $35 if you purchase all 3.

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!
