Literary Lacquers-Green Gables Collection-Anne With an E

Literary Lacquers has just created a new collection based on Anne Of Green Gables.  The collection is named Green Gables and the release date is set for June 5th at noon MST.  

I was sent five of the six in the collection to review, and I have just posted about Marilla's Amethyst Brooch.
Now I want to show you my other favorite, Anne With an E.  Anne With an E is a glitter topper. Literary Lacquers describes it as "an opalescent glitter topper."  But it is so much MORE than that!  
I layered it over two different colors to show you its range. It will go well over ANYTHING. 

This first layering is over Zoya Kieko.  I only needed one coat of Anne With an E and it went on smoothly and without fault.  I had plenty of glitters come out in all shapes and sizes. The base is a bit foggy, but not so much that it distorts the color of the base.
I used one coat of Seche Vite and it was smooth!  I love the iridescence of the glitters!

I also layered it over Sinful Colors Mesmerize.  Mesmerize is a dark plum.  Anne With an E looks really fantastic over the darker colors and this look is my favorite.
Honestly, I did not think I would like this polish when I saw it.  I could not see how it would look as I held the bottle in my hand.  I planned on swatching it real quick and taking it off. I quickly changed my mind when I put it on and I wore it for a full mani!
I said it with the last collection and I will say it again...Literary Lacquers has come a long way since she first started and has become quite the maker!  Stay tuned later for some holo goodness that I will show you from her!
Yeaahhh!  I am quite proud of this shot!  I love the color-changing glitters so much!
FYI: When she debuts these polishes, you can also buy the entire set of six at a discount for $55.
