Literary Lacquers Nail Polishes in Shift of Fate and Lake of Shining Waters

I was tickled to find out that there’s an Etsy shop with a literature obsession.

Literary Lacquers is described as “a little haven for well-read polish lovers”.

The two shades I bought are Shift of Fate (named after a book by Cynthia Voight) and Lake of Shining Waters (named for a certain lake in Anne of Green Gables).

Shift of Fate:



A gorgeous apple green with shifting gold holo, this is a must have! Its name come from the book Jackaroo by Cynthia Voight.

Lake of Shining Waters:



It’s more green in person. I LOVED the Anne of Green Gables series when I was a kid! Of course, I had to own this. Even if I didn’t love the color, there was no way I was letting a nail polish with a reference to one of my favorite books slip by.

As a freebie, I was sent a mini polish called A Thousand Christmas Trees.



To illustrate how important layering is, I painted one coat on the pinky, two on the ring, three on the middle and four on the index. With Literary Lacquers polishes, 3 thin coats is best.

Personally, I think the extra effort with application is worth it considering how gorgeous these shades are. I’m looking forward to shopping with them in the future.

    I loved Anne of Green Gables as a kid 🙂 Such a great idea for a polish collection! I’m on a bit of a ‘milky/glitter’ polish kick at the moment, so ‘Carrots! Carrots!’ is very tempting!
