Literary Lacquers Long May She Reign

Literary Lacquers has a flair for the dramatic. Especially when it comes to sparkly things, books, and the fans. My darling Cate of @allthegreenpolish  whispered in Miss Amy's ear, and we got a wonderfully glittering green polish. Thank the gods.

if you are not up-to-date on Game of Thrones...stop here and go to Instagram. This post is dark and full of spoilers.

Literary Lacquers Long May She Reign

This terrifyingly brilliant acid green jelly-ish glitter bomb is..explosive. It is filled with holo, green, and gold glitter. It is immediately evocative of Wildfire, and I cannot even with it. It makes my brain fuzzy just looking at it. I am not the biggest green fan, admittedly, but this shade gave me pause. The color is just that impressive, and that gold shimmer almost seems to give off heat itself. 

The formula is surprisingly great, considering how dense the glitters are here. I used three very thin coats, letting each coat set about five minutes each. It dried with the slightest of textures, but a simple coat of Seche Vite was enough for my texture-hating-self to be happy.

Oh, and because it's me...I had to give it a pass with my black light. I am so glad I did...because this sucker is UV reactive. That just makes it better in my eyes. Black lights really are the best things since sliced bread.


Are you a Game of Thrones fan? I am counting the days until the FINAL SEASON comes back. And then, I might die. But at least I'll have my polish picked out already.

  13. I don't plan on ever watching the tv show. I started reading the books waaaaaay back in the 90s, and by Feast For Crows I was fed up waiting for the next installment. I have no plans to finish reading the series. If he can manage to finish it before he dies. I'd have to start from the beginning again anyways, because I don't remember what's going on.
    I adore this polish though. :D
