Literary Lacquers: Breathing Dreams Like Air (& Nail Art)

It should come as no surprise that I love creme finish polishes more than anything else! And you already know how much I love Literary Lacquers, too, so when I saw Breathing Dreams Like Air hit the LitLaq store, I knew this baby had to be mine!

Breathing Dreams Like Air is described as "neutral lilac-grey creme finish inspired by The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald."

Here is the inspiration: " I have an idea that Gatsby himself didn’t believe it would come, and perhaps he no longer cared. If that was true he must have felt that he had lost the old warm world, paid a high price for living too long with a single dream. He must have looked up at an unfamiliar sky through frightening leaves and shivered as he found what a grotesque thing a rose is and how raw the sunlight was upon the scarcely created grass. A new world, material without being real, where poor ghosts, breathing dreams like air, drifted fortuitously about . . . like that ashen, fantastic figure gliding toward him through the amorphous trees."

Such a great formula! This polish was from the November 2015 Creme a la Mode box but is now available from the LitLaq store. I used two coats for the swatches you see here. It was practically a 1-coater, but I did use two and topcoat here. So pretty for any time of the year!

I attempted a little nail art using Breathing Dreams Like Air, Soul Within Me Burning, and Flopsy, all by Literary Lacquers. The base, as you can see, is Breathing, and Soul and Flopsy freehanded over. I think it looks like a modern french mani and I really love the design!

Flopsy is from the Peter Rabbit Quartet with Ever After Polish and Soul Within Me Burning is from The Color Box.
