Literary Lacquer Community Collection Swatches & Review


Hi guys! Today I have the Community Collection from Literary Lacquer to share with you. This collection isn't inspired by the show Community but its a collection made up of a bunch of collaborations! Each polish in this collection is inspired by a book, I'll have the inspiration with each polish! Check out the swatches after the jump!



A Sensible Rabbit is a taupe-y brown with a linear holo and tiny black micro glitters. This is my favorite of the collection, I don't have anything quite like it!  This polish was  designed by Cassandra Pio of Fierce Hearts Wildlife Rehabilitation, inspired by Watership Down by Richard Adams. The formula was good, it was easy to apply and had good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below. 






Burning Slowly From The Inside Out is a red orange holo with white and re-orange flakies. The flakies are pretty much impossible to see in my photos but they are more visible in lower lighting. This polish was designed by Destany Pingle from Confessions of a Sarcastic Mom and was inspired by The Selection Series by Keira Cass. The formula was good, it was a good consistency and had great opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Free To Fly is a light lavender with a soft linear holo and blue iridescent flakies and green shimmer. This was designed by Jennifer Zakroff and was inspired by Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison. The formula was good, it was sheer at first but easy to build up. I used 3 coats for the photos below.




Give My Heart is a pinky red holo with holographic glitter. This polish was actually a gift with purchase, unfortunately it is no longer available but I still wanted to show it because its beautiful! This polish was designed by Amy, the maker of Literary Lacquers, and is inspired by In The Bleak Midwinter by Christina Rossetti. The formula was good, it was sheer but buildable. It dried down a little dull and really came to life with top coat. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.





Leaves of Grass is an emerald green with a linear holo and green glitter. This was designed by Alex Bacon-Leslie and was inspired by Leaves of Grass by Walk Whitman. The formula was good, it was a good consistency and easy to apply. I used 2 coats for my photos but would probably use 3 coats when wearing it again since I can see some patchy spots I didn't notice until editing the photos.




My Favorite Day is an amber/gold metallic with a subtle linear holo. This was designed by Jody Morris Feldman and inspired by Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne. The formula was good, it was easy to work with and applied nicely with no brush strokes. I used 2 coats for the photos below.





Phizzwizard is a seafoam green holo. Whenever I say the name of this polish an image of TunaMeltsMyHeart pops into my head. If you don't know who Tuna is please click here (you're welcome). This polish was designed by Traci Hatling of Newsie Nail Novice and inspired by The BFG by Roald Dahl. The formula was good, sheer but buildable and easy to apply. I used 3 coats for the photos below.



Stinky Little Truck is a metallic silver scattered holo. This was designed by Michelle Chouinard of Lacquer or Leave Her and was inspired by The Veronika Layne Mysteries by Julia Park Tracey. The formula was good, it was a really nice consistency and easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Veronika is a violet holo. This polish was designed by Julia Park Tracey inspired by The Veronika Layne Mysteries by Julia Park Tracey. How neat that the author of the book is the one to collaborate on this polish! The formula was good, it was a good consistency and easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.
