Literary Lacquers New Collection-Literary Liquors

*Press Sample*
Tonight I have a new collection from our book loving indie maker-Literary Lacquers.  Amy has made a collection entitled Literary Liquors.  Here is what she has to say...
The collection is called Literary Liquors and it consists of 5 holos and 1 glitter top coat. It's being launched on September 5 at 12:00 pm MDT. Full size bottles are $10 each and the entire collection will be available at a discounted price of $55.
****************
I'm Drinking Stars - Champagne linear holo, opaque at 3 coats or a fabulous holo top coat at one coat over pretty much anything, this is not a golden champagne, but a neutral pale taupe. Inspired by Still Life With Woodpecker by Tom Robbins

 I used four coats with no base color.  It went on very well and layered well. It is on the thinner side, which enables it to be layered easily.  It is a very nice nude holo; I might even call it a transluscent holo.
 It really does remind me of champagne!

 Dandelion Wine - Mustard golden yellow holo with orangey-pinky color shift, I'm describing this as the color that you remember summer as when you look back after the weather has gotten cold. Inspired by Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury
Dandelion Wine was two easy coats.  I love the pink shimmer running through it!  I am not usually a fan of yellows, but this one has some great qualities to it!  I love that it is only a two coater and I love he pink!
You can really see the pink here.

 Jack Rose - Warm coppery brown holo, kind of the color of magical apple cider. Inspired by The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
Jack Rose was one of my favorites.  It is a soft copper color with a nice linear holo.  I used three coats to cover VNL.
I couldn't get a great shot of the holo in my light box, but it is there.  This is a fantastic fall color!

 Two At the Very Most - Martini top coat - Black hexes, white squares, gunmetal hexes, silver chrome hexes so shiny that they reflect light like a disco ball, a touch of holographic microglitter and added green circle glitters (for the olives, of course!) This polish is inspired by the martini, literature's most beloved cocktail. The name refers to the quatrain attributed to Dorothy Parker.
I used one coat of Two at the Very Most over Jack Rose.  It went on very nicely and I had no issues.  The glitter laid flat and spread well.
 Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster - Hmmm... I'm just not really sure how to describe this specific shade of blue. It's a rich blue (that's also a little on the warm side but not so much that I'd call it teal) holo with added holo glitter. Inspired by The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
My other favorite in the collection!  Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is a fantastic blue/teal holo.  I used three coats for depth, but you can get away with two.
The holo is amazing as is the added glitter holo!

 Strawberry Ice Cream Soma - Warm pink crelly holo - I call this one of my "office holos." Indoors, it's a shimmery pink with a touch of purple shimmer, in the sun or bright light a full linear holo rainbow emerges. Inspired by Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
Do you want something office friendly and super girly and soft?  Strawberry Ice Cream Soma is just the one for you.  I used three coats for opacity and it layered well with no issues.  In most light, it is a pretty soft pink.  When you get it out in the sun, that gorgeous linear holo comes out to play!
