Literary Lacquers: Book Club Polishes - Serious Nap Rays & My Whirlwind Other Half

Lately it seems as if there is a Facebook group for every single indie brand. While I tend to sit out on most of these groups, one of my favorite groups, polish related or not, is the Literary & Lacquers Group. Everyone in the group loves Amy's polishes, (and Amy!) and we also love books. Each month, the group reads and discusses a book and we hold contests to design a polish based off the book. We all get to vote and then Amy works her magic.
Available March 21, only to members of the group, are two brand new beautiful polishes! They are not only LE in production but also in time!  The polishes are $10 each and available starting TODAY!! - March 21-April 16 for members of Literary (&) Lacquers group members only. Request to join the group HERE!

As usual, let us begin with bottle shots!

First up, here is Serious Nap Rays. This beauty was designed with Jennifer Sky Walker inspired by Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. It is described as a "moody grey-purple-taupe with orange shimmer, pink glass fleck, purple flakies and just a touch of linear holo. Looks different in every light."

I used three thin coats and no topcoat for the pics. I sent Amy a few photos of my swatches and she was surprised by how purple it looked on my skin tone while it looked more taupe on hers. The formula is beautiful, slightly sheer but builds so nicely.

The second polish is My Whirlwind Other Half. It was designed by Jennifer Zakroff and inspired by We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler. This beauty is described as a "sheer shimmery crelly white, packed with holographic microglitter and rainbow opalescent flakies." This polish is a beaut! Here are three coats with no undies:
