Mani Monday featuring Literary Lacquer!

*Purchased* *Press Sample*
Hello Lovelies!
   I am back again today with a new installment of Mani Monday! First, I must apologize that this post was supposed to go up last Monday but to to the preschool chaos that was happening here I missed it. So, I do apologize.But, today I have to chance to show of some really gorgeous beauties from Literary Lacquer. Literary Lacquer is run by a wonderful lady named Amy and she creates FABULOUS polishes based off of novels! So of course being the big giant literary nerd that I am, I squealed with joy at the aspect of this.

Yup, this is my face looking at her available polishes. Cause seriously they are pretty damn epic.
When the polishes arrived I was blown away as soon as I opened the package. It was as if pure literary and polish goodness powers combined and punched me in the face with their epic-ness.

So much pure awesome in one package!
I was determined to swatch them all...

I was determined!

I originally picked this gorgeous polish, Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, which is you are a scifi junkie you  will automatically know that is from Douglas Adams' Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. It is one of my favorite books (and yes I even loved the movie hence for your viewing pleasure the fabulous animated gifs). It is described as a vibrant turquoise blue linear holographic polish with added fine holographic glitter. The description isn't kidding this polish is PACKED with holographic glitter. It hits you in the face when the sun shines on it .
That's the holo hitting you in the face.. Just be prepared.
But don't just take my word for it, take a look at this!
I would say that it is more on the green side of turquoise but either way it is fabulous.

Another sunshine shot trying to capture all that holo-y goodness.

Look at all that HOLO! 

I also was lucky enough of get the Bionic MmmmDetector, from the Good Parts Collection based off Erotic Fiction,which is a polish inspired by Vox written by Nicholson Baker. For those of you who are history buffs, or actually lived thru this, this book is the same one given to President Clinton from  Monica Lewinsky. Bionic MmmmDetector is described as a black jelly packed with aqua, teal, blue and green micro glitter. I will admit that when I applied the first coat I was wondering if I needed to apply some undies underneath the polish. But I didn't, it builds up beautifully giving the polish amazing depth.
Step away from the undie polish cause this is gorgeous all on it's own!

This polish while not based on HGTG looks like an amazing space polish.

Trying to capture the glitters just right

Close up shot.. Doesn't it look like an exploding planet?
This could totally be the glitters in the polish.

Finally last but never least, Amy was sweet enough to include a sneak preview a polish, Camazotz,  from the Wrinkle in Time Collection which is another favorite book from my childhood. Camazotz is the planet that has been swallowed by the Dark Thing. This polish fits it perfectly since it is described as a black linear holo with a blue/ red shift. It can even appear purple at some angles.

Don't be sad, while the planet was swallowed by the Dark Thing the polish is fabulous!

See here it appears black

And close up you can see the purplish hue.
  I loved all of the polishes so much I wanted to track Amy down and immediately hug her for combining two of my loves, books and polish into one awesome package!

So much literary and polish love!
