And welcome to Part 2 of the latest collection from Literary Lacquers. In this post, we look at the bolder colours.
We're going to start with the standout polish. And yes, it's a green. This polish is just utterly entrancing, hypnotic and mesmerising - and as you know, me and green, uh huh.
Avada Kedavra starts off matte, and looks good, but get a top coat on her and OH MY GOD. The green becomes instantly more serpentine, the glitters more toxic and the overall tone darker and more sinister.
For a polish that takes its name from dark magic, I don't think there could be a more perfect representation. This is poisonous, bewitching, and utterly off the scale.
After all the poison, an antedote is required, and palates don't come more cleansed than Octarine.
Octarine is a lovely mauvey gentle holo that redefines the word "soft". Super calming and docile, this is elegant in every way.
Cast From Stormhold is a purple (I love that Amy does a lot of purples) but quite a different one to the ones we usually see.
Firstly, this is lighter and brighter in tone - more blackcurrant-ish - and with a subtle flakieness and metallic edge. I like that this is so different - good enough to drink!
And finally, the squish and splish of spring / summer happiness - Flickum Bicus.
As well as being the brightest and happiest polish in the collection, Flickum Bicus pulls off the feat of a sun-hot polish wearing the coldest cloak of bluish shimmer. A real juxtaposition, and a very heady summer cocktail.
