Literary Lacquers The Good Parts Collection

Disclosure

This is the newest collection from one of my favorite indie makers, Literary Lacquers; and it is a big one, so pop the corn.  None of these disappointed.  I was waiting for a "meh" color since there were so many, and I liked every single one.  I do have some critiques, but overall great quality, as I've come to expect from this brand.  Woman of Pleasure, based on a novel that was banned for 200 years, now there's something I'd like to read some day.  This is a jelly-esque periwinkle, with that magenta round glitter, that is now in vogue.  Great addition to any blue-lover's collection.  My favorite thing in it, are the pale pink hexagons, I don't know why, but I love them so.  About John Thomas/Lady Jane there's not much to say, ecept that it is a stunner, and the pictures speak for themselves.  The orange holographic in this collex, More Like Fire Than Light, my only comment is who knew I needed a tangerine linear holographic? genius!  Roissey is an interesting metallic-y blue with black shreds that are somewhat chunky.  It dries matte and the drying time is slow.  My secret garden is a gorgeous blend of matte pastel glitters.  I had shown this before as a glittery sandwich for Easter here.  Zipless is not at all what I expected from looking at the bottle.  I thought "this belongs in a Christmas collection", but I was so wrong, this is borderline neon.  It even makes my hands look tanned.  A warm bright jelly that is perfect for this season.  If It Pleases You has been blogged about a lot, and there is a good reason why: there is no other purple holographic, as of now, that compares to it.  This shade is very unique.  One thing that I did notice with this, and with More Like Fire Than Light, is that they are not glossy, so I recommend adding topcoat (I use Sally Hansen Diamond Flash that does not dull holographics).  They are also very sheer, and they require up to four coats for opacity.  The good part is --no pun intended-- that they have an amazing holographic effect, comparable to the coveted OPI Designer Series or discontinued Ozotics.  Bionic Mmmm-Detector was a bit watery for me, but I used two heavy coats here, and had no issues.  Last one is Laters, Baby, it is pure perfection, regarding black holographics, simply the best I've seen.  It is completely black, and does not lean grey or charcoal (except maybe in the shade).  The holographic effect is the strongest of the three.  It is a perfect three-coater, and it has that sparkly (and did I mention smooth?) microglitter that just dazzles and makes it so unique and special.  A must have for sure.  Wow I'm done :) if you've read this far, congrats!  Bottom line: I really love this collection, especially the holographics.

    1. Oh really? If I had to pick a favorite it would be one of the holographics too, but I can't make up my mind ;)
