I have a weird fascination with anything macabre. I love it. And I love old books. One of my favorite is Dracula by Bram Stoker. And I love polish. So when I found out that my good friend Amy over at Literary Lacquers was coming out with a Dracula inspired polish trio I was like… WHAT?! Seriously, if she keeps making polishes like these I am going to go broke.
First up is Mina. It’s a gorgeous black jelly polish full of flecks and shards and squares and hexes in purple.
I seriously love this polish, but do not like the way it photographed, so I will be re-doing the swatch pictures for this and Lucy on Thursday when I can take advantage of the sunlight. It has some seriously awesome shimmer to it. (The amended pictures are at the end of this post!)
Next up of course, is The Count. A shimmery black/gunmetal grey polish, it is a true stunner. Amy says it’s opaque at two coats, but can be worn over a lighter polish to give that polish a vampy look.
It truly reminds me of bat or crow wings and moonlight.
Here I wore it over Chanel’s Rouge Flamboyant. It really does lend it a slightly funky, very vampy look to it.
Lastly I have Lucy for you. It’s kind of hard to explain Lucy. It’s a blackish/brownish base with a whole ton of different colored glitter.
It is very vampy, very almost demure with a hint of something other-worldly.
You can find Amy’s polishes at Literary Lacquer’s Etsy shop. Right now she’s on a much needed vacation, but will be back in the swing of things in a few short days. If you haven’t tried out her polishes, you must. They’re some of the best out there!
Here’s Mina over Orly’s Purple Velvet.
Here’s Lucy over Zoya Raven.
Thank goodness for sunshine!!!!
