I was lucky enough to be invited to take part in a great nail art challenge inspired by the Seven Deadly Sins! The first sin is Lust! As luck would have it I was also asked to review some amazing polishes by Amy of Literary Lacquers which included polishes from The Good Parts Collection which is based on erotica (is anyone else as excited about this as me! I studied this subject at University!). I also have been dying to try out my new Barry M Nail Pens- oh what a lustful combination!
Laters, Baby is based on the bestselling series 50 Shades of Grey. Yes I have read them, admittedly they aren't the best written books in the world but they aren't bad and have done a lot for changing the canon of popular woman's fiction and women's sexuality.
Of course then this polish is grey based, with a brown charcoal warmth which doesn't make this polish seem too stark on the nail. This polish is also filled with course holographic glitter that really comes alive in the sunlight.
This polish has fifty different shades of the rainbow when it hits the sunlight! I love the fact this isn't a 'smooth' holographic finish, those larger holographic glitters add far more depth to this polish in my opinion and make it far more interesting! It reminds me of galaxies, black holes and the night's sky.
Application was a breeze with this polish this is two coats and a layer of topcoat (which really didn't diminish the holographicness of this polish at all!!), although I should have added another layer of topcoat over my heart after using the nail art pen, to smooth it out a bit.
I can't wait to show you the other beauties I have from Literary Lacquers, in the mean time feel free to check out Etsy and Facebook for more details.
