Literary Lacquers Indie Polish Review

Disclosure: One or more of these polishes were sent for my honest review. I only recommend products that I use and believe my readers will enjoy.

Hello lacquered lovelies,
Today, I have another review for you.
I was sent these polishes by Literary Lacquers  a couple weeks ago, and had a great time playing around with them. Right away, I discovered that this stuff is good. I mean really good.

Before I get into specifics about these polishes, let me start with my initial experience. Of course, I was excited to receive the bottles and was eager to try them out. I did not, however, anticipate what I found. There is a certain luxurious quality to these polishes. The colors are vibrant, yet not overdone. Don't get me wrong,  I also enjoy polishes that are over-the-top, but I found these to touch on a certain level of understated elegance. Even the glittery ones were right on target, sparkly, but not garish, and very wearable. I wore them to the office and received complements. A few of my more conservative friends were very impressed with the glitters, which was a shocker to me since anything beyond neutrals and pinks are a little outside of their comfort zone. Not only was I impressed, but these polishes appeal to a range of tastes beyond my own.

Ok, with that said, let's take a look at the consistency and application.

These are dream polishes, meaning that they applied like a dream. This is how you wish all your polishes applied, smoothly, without pooling or clumping. I did not have to use special care with the glitters and there was no streaking. I used three coats, but these polishes are opaque in two.

Now, let's get to the good stuff, the polishes themselves.

More Like Fire Than Light
 More Like Fire Than Light from The Good Parts Collection, is described as an orange linear holographic polish. It applies smoothly and is opaque in two coats. The formula is a little thin, but I experienced no pooling, and was surprised that it was opaque in two coats. I love the rich color.

Everything You Love

Everything You Love
Everything You Love is a soft muted lilac linear holographic polish that is opaque in two coats. Like the other four polishes, this one applied easily, with no pooling or streaking.


Je Riviens

Je Riviens
Je Riviens is a deep teal linear holo with holographic sparkle from the Rebecca Collection. I fell in love with this polish immediately because of the vibrant sparkles, just the perfect amount to set off the lovely teal color. The consistency was just a tad thicker than More Like Fire Than Light, and it applied smoothly. The sparkle effect was evenly distributed throughout. 

Mirror of Galadriel
Mirror of Galadriel

Mirror of Galadriel is a gorgeous sparkling crystalline silver linear holographic, inspired by Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. This is my favorite of the four because the sparkles are simply captivating. The formula is the same as Je Riviens and was opaque in two coats, although I may have used three for the pictures.


Overall, I think Literary Lacquer polishes are a winner. The formula is well perfected and the color selection is outstanding. I love Amy's creative vision and inspiration for her polishes.
