It’s always exciting when Literary Lacquers releases a new collection- even the most simple of her polishes always have a certain magic to them and some of my very top favorite polishes are from her brand. Her Magic And Mysteries collection was amazing so I was excited to hear about her newest Vurt-U-Want collection!
The Literary Lacquers Vurt-U-Want collection is inspired by Vurt, the 1990s classic cyber-hallucinogenic novel by Jeff Noon (which I totally want to read now). The collection will be released in her shop on June 11th. I used Out The Door top coat for the photos below. Unfortunately the weather was not cooperating for sun shots of the holos but I cannot wait to rewear those when it’s sunny outside! Let’s take a look!
Literary Lacquers Vurt-U-Want is described as a neon pink linear holo with holo microglitter. Two coats. The formula was awesome, the perfect consistency and went on easily. I’m a big pink lover so I totally fell in love with this one and I love any unique takes on neon! This one freaked my camera out a bit- the nail macro is the closest to color accurate!
Literary Lacquers Thermofish is described as a bright aqua-cyan linear holo with holo microglitter. Two coats. The formula was great, thick enough to stay where you put it but thin enough that it goes on easily. I can see myself using this pretty much the entire summer and for a million ocean or mermaid-themed manis. The nail macro is also the most color-accurate on this one.
Literary Lacquers Blue Lullaby is described as a deep bright blue linear holo with holo microglitter. Two coats. The formula was awesome, just like the other two microglitter shades. Such a perfect shade of blue.
Literary Lacquers Bottletown is described as a bottle green linear holo with rainbow flakies and glass flecks. Two coats. The formula was wonderful, I usually have to barely do cleanup with Amy’s polishes because they go on so easily.
Literary Lacquers Dreamsnake is described as a violet linear holo with green flakies and glass flecks. Two coats but you may need three if you have longer nails. The formula was great, not too thick or too thin. I basically died when I put the first coat of this one and had to have someone come throw me a /rez. So gorgeous.
Literary Lacquers Shadowgirl is described as a a soft grey matte packed with holographic and metallic glitter in silver, gunmetal and blue, gives different effect when worn with topcoat. Two coats. The formula was great, it had a good glitter density and I didn’t have to fish for any of the glitters. Such a cool icy look- I see myself wearing this a lot during the winter as well!
Literary Lacquers Curious Yellow is described as a taxi yellow matte with gold glass fleck and flakies, gives different effect when worn with topcoat. Two coats. The formula was flawless. I’m not usually a big fan of yellows but this one was like painting on liquid sun!
Literary Lacquers English Voodoo is described as a magenta holo microglitter, 2 sizes of black hexes, black holo triangles and a smattering of marigold matte small hexes. One dabbed coat over Zoya Dove. The formula was good, I turned the bottle upside down for a few minutes before applying and didn’t really have to fish for the big glitters.
Overall, I think this collection is wonderful- classic Literary Lacquers aesthetic with some fun new additions as well. Picking my favorites is EXTREMELY difficult but if I absolutely had to narrow it down I think they’d be Dreamsnake, Vurt-U-Want, Thermofish and Shadowgirl. Again, this collection releases June 11th in her shop if you’d like to adopt any of them for your own.
