Literary Lacquers - The Community Collection - Part 1

Hi Goddesses

Ok, are you ready?  This is a WHOPPER!  This is HALF The Community Collection - the reds, oranges, pinks, lilacs etc.  There will be a separate post for the blues and the green.

As I think you know, these polishes were sent to me for my honest review.

Let's start with Phenomenal Woman, which is one of my favourites from the Collection.  This was designed with Jen from Musings of the Wife of a Jedi.

This is just gorgeous.  It's a browny, burgundy holo, really warm and autumnal, but not so autumnal that it would restrict when you can wear it.

I really love this one - great job!

Next we have Thermo-Dynamics, designed with Sparkly Vernis, and I firmly expected this to be my very favourite - but it wasn't.

This is described as pink-red jelly with blue glass fleck and it IS gorgeous - but it's also really transparent.  I have used 4 coats here and it's still not as opaque as I would like it.

Another reviewer described this as similar to Disco Biscuit by Butter London, and it's a really good comparison.  That too isn't opaque, and has to be layered over another polish, so I think I will be revisiting this one soon over a variety of bases.  If you own Disco Biscuit, you *can* justify both - this one to me has more coral tones.

Then we have As The Waltz Was Ending, designed with Lacey from My Boyfriend Hates Make Up.  I firmly expected to dislike this one, but again I was wrong!

If you watched my original YouTube video on this collection, you may remember me being worried about this particular shade of lilac - it's blue toned - which never looks good on my skin.

The great news is that the beautiful holo takes those fears away.  This really is fluffy and pretty.

Part 2 will follow shortly.  Amy has just passed 4,000 likes on Facebook and is holding a big sale to celebrate - you do NOT want to miss out!!!
