**this product is a press sample and was sent to me to swatch and give my honest review**
This new collection by Karen, of Lollipop Posse Lacquer, is inspired by a strong girl or woman from some of her favorite books. This collection consists of five beautiful shades that applied like a dream, all in two easy coats, and have that gorgeous Lollipop sparkle! I’ll tell you about launch details after the pictures…
First up is [really almost beautiful]; “Under the pink Harlequin sunglasses, strawberry lipstick, earrings dangling charms, and sugar-frosted eyeshadow, she was really almost beautiful.” ~Weetzie Bat, by Francesca Lia Block
This is a deep jewel-toned raspberry shade filled with linear holographic pigment and silver holographic micro flakies. Every single one of these shades is so gorgeous, and I love this entire collection, so I’m just going to give you the descriptions, because I don’t really have any words for how amazing this collection is!
Next up is [courage, dear heart]; “But no one, except Lucy, knew that as the albatross circled the mast it had whispered to her ‘Courage, dear heart’, and the voice, she felt sure, was Aslan’s.” ~The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, by C.S. Lewis
This one is a glittering, glistening gold holographic that is packed with gold and bronze micro flakies and shimmers with a green undertone. This is a gorgeous gold!
Next we have [half so interesting]; “There’s such a lot of different Anne’s in me. I sometimes think that is why I’m such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn’t be half so interesting.” ~Anne of Green Gables, by L.M. Montgomery
This beauty is a deep, opaque emerald shade that is packed with scattered holographic pigment, blue micro flakies, bronze micro flakies, and blue/green shifting pigment.
Here we have [i give you your faults]; “Meg, I give you your faults.”
“My faults!” Meg cried.
“But I’m always trying to get rid of my faults.”
“Yes,” Mr Whatsit said. “However, I think you’ll find they’ll come in very handy on Comazotz.”
~ A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L’Engle
This one is a rich, jewel-toned, holographic teal with bright sparks of gold and bronze micro flakies scattered throughout.
And lastly we have [you are the gull (strong and wild)]; “You are the gull, Jo, strong and wild, fond of the storm and the wind, flying far out to sea, and happy all alone.” ~Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott
This gorgeous beauty is a rich and luxurious sapphire/indigo shade packed with blue micro flakies and holographic pigment. (this is the beauty that I used as an accent nail in my Super Bowl mani; gorgeous, right??)
I’m not sure that I could pick one favorite out of this collection because I truly love them ALL!! Could you pick just one?
