Literary Lacquer The Ultimate Answer Swatch & Review


Happy Friday! Today I have a special polish from Literary Lacquer called The Ultimate Answer to share with you. This polish is a very limited edition polish that will only be available for the next couple of days (August 28- August 30).

The Ultimate Answer was created by Amy of Literary Lacquer to celebrate her birthday this year. The name comes from The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy and the answer is how old Amy turned this year. Gotta love how that worked out, right?

The base of The Ultimate Answer is a peacock green, it has a subtle linear holo, small holographic bits of glitter and holographic silver star glitter. The formula was good, its sheer but buildable. I did have to fish a bit for the stars but they are plentiful and fairly easy to grab. I used 2 coats for the photos below, you can see some nail line in the photos but I couldn't see it in real life.





The Ultimate Answer will be available for a very limited time, from today August 28th to August 30th. Literary Lacquer can be found at https://www.etsy.com/shop/LiteraryLacquer

Elevation Polish + Pahlish Venetian Duo Swatches & Review

Hi guys! Today I have the Elevation Polish + Pahlish Venetian Duo to share with you! I was like YUS when I saw this, Elevation is a long time favorite brand of mine and Pahlish is one that I've been recently enjoying a lot from. In addition to this duo both brands also put out collection inspired by Marco Polo, they are gorgeous...you should check them out!

Elevation Polish's contribution to the duo is called The Merchant's Son. This is a turquoise/aqua thermal polish with a subtle green shimmer. The color is lighter aqua when warm and a few shades darker when cool. This changes pretty nicely, however it was like 95 degrees outside when I was wearing this so getting a shot of the cool color was pretty much impossible (I even tried putting my hand in the freezer and running outside lol). The formula was good, it was easy to apply and had nice opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.




Pahlish's contribution is called The Wayfarer. The Wayfarer is a glitter topper filled with silver flakes of glitter, multi chrome flakes of glitter and iridescent glitter. This goes great over The Merchant's Son, and will probably look good over pretty much anything you layer it over. The formula was great, it was a nice consistency and easy to apply with good glitter payoff. I used 1 coat plus top coat over The Merchant's Son. Both photos below are in the shade.




The Elevation + Pahlish Duo is available for a limited time at both shops for $22. Elevation Polish can be found at http://elevationpolish.bigcartel.com and Pahlish can be found at http://www.pahlish.bigcartel.com
