Literary Lacquers- An Honest Puck, Lucy, and Midsummer Night's Dream.

    On the blog this coming week, I am going to be reviewing ten of Literary Lacquer's polishes!  I am always excited to show you a new indie and this one is different simply because of her combination of polish and literature. 
    Amy is the creative mind behind Literary Lacquer and she describes her combining of both passions well on her Etsy shop: Literary Lacquers was founded at 7,000 feet above sea level in the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2012 out of a desire to combine my two biggest passions: literature and polish. Each polish is inspired by a literary reference and I attempt to evoke in color and texture the feel of the passage or work to me.
So let's start this journey, shall we?
An Honest Puck is a bronze-brown base with brown and bronze glitter. Scattered throughout are bright green squares. I used this polish on its own and it was opaque in two coats.  I found the base to be very pigmented and very easy to apply.  It went on smoothly and evenly and I had no issues with it. I didn't even have to fish for green glitters!  They came out readily.
An Honest Puck is a great polish for brown polish lovers!  It is so rare to see a brown glitter polish and this one hits the mark and then some-especially with those green squares thrown in!
Lucy is a character in Dracula by Bram Stoker.   Lucy is a darkened brown base with red and silver glitters in it.  The glitter dispersed fairly well and polish went on smoothly.
Pardon the bare spot on my finger. That was completely my fault as I had smudged the polish and thought I had covered it up well enough. Only macro shots will show you every single flaw in your application!  :o(
Midsummer Night's Dream is a vibrant blue polish with gold glitters and gold HOLO glitters!  I found that three coats alone did not make it opaque enough to stand on its own for my preference, so I layered it over Sinful Colors Rain Storm.  I think with a bit more pigment, it would be a stunning stand alone polish!  Midsummer Night's Dream went on smoothly and the glitter spread evenly here as well.  I had  no issues getting out the larger hexes either.
This polish is a stunner and if you love blue, you will love this!
