Literary Lacquers: Wuthering Heights Duo for Gloss48!

Today I have another gorgeous set of Literary Lacquers polishes for you. Amy has designed a new duo for Gloss48 that will be available starting on December 3! If you snag this set early, it's 20% off for the first week along with other duos available.

Amy's duo was designed by the winner of the Show Us Your Indies nail art contest and the designer did an awesome job - let's get to the pics!

 Group shot:


 And this is the photo Amy used for inspiration. How gorgeous is that?


 The polishes are named after Heathcliff and Catherine from Wuthering Heights.

 Heathcliff is a dark demin-like blue. The formula was flawless, the color is saturated and deep. This is 3 thin coats, no topcoat:

Literary Lacquers: 2014 Community Collection!

Today I have a photo heavy post from one of my favorite indies, Literary Lacquers!

This year's holiday collection is the Community Collection, a group of 8 polishes that were made in collaboration with bloggers and polished obsessed ladies. This is actually the 2nd Annual Community Collection - you can see reviews of last year's collection HERE, and many of those polishes are still available (including my beautiful Waltz!).

*This year, if you purchase a certain amount, you receive either a full size or mini of I Heard The Bells, a gorgeous gold/copper/bronze holo that is just amazing. Pics at the very end, so make sure to scroll all the way down!*

Group shot of this year's Community Collection:


I do have some favorites but I'll reserve that for the end and review in order of the pic above.

Needless to say, they are all gorgeous and have the typical Literary Lacquers perfect application and formula.  I used 3 coats, no topcoat, for each of the swatches you see below. Dry time is fine, application just fluid and perfect!  Time for pics!

First up, this is The Ruby Thief.  Designed by Jenne of Polished Pathology – Inspired by Dinosaurs in the Attic , a ruby pink glass fleck shimmer.  I love how it takes on different colors, blue, red, pink, gold.  Really pretty:

Next, Porco Rosso, designed by Schette of Schette EssaisBeauté, Inspired by Porco Rosso, this is a deep red linear holo with taupe and gold flakies.

Fallen Tributes is a darkened almost denim blue holo. Designed by Jennifer of 4Boys1Mom Lacquer and inspired by The Hunger Games, this polish features gold flakes and copper shimmer, too.

Always Winter, Never Christmas is an icy blue holo with extra holo glitters. It was created by the Mercurial Magpie, inspired by The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Oh, my, goodness. You have to see this in person. It's so holo it almost glows.

Effie's Trinket is another favorite for me! The color is similar, not the same, to my Waltz. If you love orchid and Lit Lacq, you do need both! It was created by Heather Tharp and inspired by The Hunger Games, too.

Grasshopper With Cotton Candy Hair is one of the most stunning green polishes I have ever seen! Created by the fab Cate and inspired by The Dresden Files, this is a must have for green lovers.

Lurid Fog is an intense shade! It's grey, it's purple, it's grey, it's purple! xoxo, Jen created the shade and it was inspired by The New Grub Street.

Attic Mice is a gorgeous grey. Inspired by Flowers In The Attic and created by Jess Moore, this is just a soft, subtle, work-friendly, gorgeous shade.
