Literary Lacquers Misc. Swatches & Review

Friday, April 22, 2016

Ecstatic doesn't even begin to cover what I felt when Amy from Literary Lacquers asked me to pick some polishes from her shop to swatch for her. Do you know how hard it is to look through a shop full of awesomeness and have to narrow it down? She was even kind enough to throw in an extra! I wanted to go out of my comfort zone with these and pick some shades I don't own or normally don't gravitate towards. I was NOT disappointed!
