Literary Lacquers Gift of the Magi Collection

Amy from Literary Lacquers says that the collection consists of “3 full coverage glitters: a bright holly green glitter with silver and scattered holo glitter [Gift of the Magi], a grey crelly with iridescent, black and white glitters peeping through [Grey Cat/Grey Fence], and an icy icy icy aqua blue with crazy shimmer, iridescent and white glitters [Bright Spirit].  1 glitter top coat: copper and silver glitters [$1.87].  A red shimmery linear holo [Greatest Treasures], and 3 shimmers: Barbie sparkle party pink [Sudden Serious Sweetness], elegant navy blue shimmer with a slight shift [Generosity and Love], and molten rosy copper [They Are Wisest].”

Robyn, who graciously did this review for me says “Greatest Treasures was one of my favorites in this collection! I love holos and have never even tried a reddish holo until now and it didn't disappoint.  I couldn't stop staring at my nails.  This is 3 coats, no topcoat for these pics.  Generosity and Love is a beautiful dark blue. I don't have anything like this in my collection. My only advice when applying this polish is to let it dry a while before doing your second and third coat. I am impatient by nature so I learned this the hard way. I had to re-do two nails, but it was worth it. The end result is gorgeous.  Regarding Grey Cat/Grey Fence, I'm typically not a huge fan of grey polishes. I have a history of buying them from Sephora and thinking maybe this is 'the grey' but then returning them before I even wear them. This grey blew me away! The formula was fantastic and It applied perfectly. This grey is a keeper.  $1.87, just look at this one. It's a beauty! Easy to apply, two coats over They Were The Wisest. A perfect combo in my book.  The formula of They Are Wisest, was awesome. 3 coats applied smooth and dried quickly. I couldn't wait to get the next polish on top of this, $1.87. These two polishes were made for one another.  Sudden Serious Sweetness, this is one of my favorites. It's simply beautiful. I have a hard time finding pinks I really like. I find light pink polishes hard to apply and I always wind up messing them up. This polish went on like a dream. AND, it is soooo pretty! I love it.  Bright Spirit was my favorite in the bottle. I'm a sucker for blue polish. I saved this one for last because I knew I wanted to keep it on for a couple of days. I applied two coats like normal, and then dabbed on my third to get more glitter coverage.  I love green polish. I don't love green as much as blue, but it's a close 2nd. Gift of the Magi is one of my new favorite greens. It was so easy to work with. I can't wait to wear it again, and it'll definitely be one I wear around the holidays."

And I say “What a cheerful Holiday Collection! I am so in love with that grey and that gold.  Check out these beautiful lacquers while they are on sale (see last picture for details).  A big thanks to Robyn for helping me and cheers to Amy for this wonderful ensemble of pretties; and thanks for hosting this sale!”
