Happy Labor Day! Today I’ve got the Literary Lacquers Literary Liquors Nail Polish Collection to show you. It’s a stunning new collection that I think you’ll love. The collection is made up of 5 holographic shades and 1 glitter top coat. Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster really stole my heart! I’m in love with it! All swatches and bottle shots were taken outside in direct sunlight. I’ve got the glitter top coat shown on top of every color.
Here’s my thoughts on the collection in a video. Please give it a thumbs up if you like it
$55 for the entire collection (discounted)
$10 for full size bottles

I’m Drinking Stars – Champagne linear holo, opaque at 3 coats or a fabulous holo top coat at one coat over pretty much anything, this is not a golden champagne, but a neutral pale taupe. Inspired by Still Life With Woodpecker by Tom Robbins
Jack Rose – Warm coppery brown holo, kind of the color of magical apple cider. Inspired by The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
Dandelion Wine – Mustard golden yellow holo with orangey-pinky color shift, I’m describing this as the color that you remember summer as when you look back after the weather has gotten cold. Inspired by Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury
Strawberry Ice Cream Soma – Warm pink crelly holo – I call this one of my “office holos.” Indoors, it’s a shimmery pink with a touch of purple shimmer, in the sun or bright light a full linear holo rainbow emerges. Inspired by Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster - It’s a rich blue (that’s also a little on the warm side but not so much that I’d call it teal) holo with added holo glitter. Inspired by The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Two At the Very Most – Martini top coat – Black hexes, white squares, gunmetal hexes, silver chrome hexes so shiny that they reflect light like a disco ball, a touch of holographic microglitter and added green circle glitters (for the olives, of course!) This polish is inspired by the martini, literature’s most beloved cocktail. The name refers to the quatrain attributed to Dorothy Parker:
I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
At three I’m under the table,
At four I’m under the host!
Now, I’m completely in love with Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.
It’s a seriously stunning color. I personally feel it’s a brilliant teal blue
This is such a fun, quirky collection from Literary Lacquers. I love the theme and the colors!
What do you think of the Literary Liquors collection? Which shades do you love?

I love Bradbury’s Dandelion Wine! The color really does suit that novel.
Like, where can I purchase?
It’s available on Etsy There’s a link in my blog post.
RealForUs7 They’re all so pretty
I have their store bookmarked and several of their polishes on my wishlist.
These are gorgeous, I need to go add the shop to my Etsy favorites. I really need Strawberry Ice Cream Soma in my life…with the glitter top coat!
I love the way Two At the Very Most looks swatched on top of each of the colors. So gorgeous!
Phyrra, you are one hoopy frood, ya know that?
Love the color and the name…but for some reason I would have expected it to be a yellow with a name like that
My wish list just got longer …..
These are truly fabulous polishes, I have a few and can’t wait to get more!
I have a few of these, and I love them
I have never heard of this brand but I think that is going to have to change. I think their logo is adorable as well.
All of their polishes are inspired by books!
I know. Where’s the lemon yellow or gold flake? It’s still pretty though.
Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is most definitely a PHYRRA color!
omg amazing name!!

When I saw Jack Rose in LL’s shop I didn’t like it, I felt it pulled too orange, but these swatches show it to be much prettier. I love I’m Drinking Stars and Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster (so a Phyrra color!) I don’t understand Two at the Very Most. I feel it ruins all the colors. It’s just haphazard, chunky, and well, ugly.
