Hello friends!!

Hope you’re all doing great!! I have two beautiful polishes from Literary Lacquers to show you today! They were inspired by the poem “The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe and were done in collaboration with Jen Carter of xoxoJen. Was I the only one obsessed with this writer?? Cause I remember being a teen and being totally in love with his poetry although I must admit that the Raven is not my favorite Poe poem (my favorite poem ever is Annabel Lee also by Poe). I always loved his way with words and  it is a true pleasure to be able to blog polishes inspired by his work.. makes my emo 16yo self proud. 🙂

And This Mystery Explore 

Is a bronzy/grayish crelly packed with holographic copper and orange holographic microglitter and shimmer.
This is one hell of a beauty! Ahh so gorgeous and unique.. doesn’t it look like a really cool rusty bronzy sparkly jewel? The formula was wonderful, opacity in 2 coats for me. You see two coats plus glossy top coat in the pics.

For nail art I stamped in black , I really like the color combo but I’m not sure if I love the mani, maybe the ratio of filigree to flower should have been different?
Sweet Lenore 
Is a bronze metallic linear holo with just a touch of grunge.
This polish is fantastic! the formula was an absolute dream, super easy and flowy, no noticeable sign of brushstrokes which is amazing for a metallic! You see two coats plus glossy top coat in the pics.

With a matte top coat!
