Literary Lacquers: The Ultimate Answer LE aka Happy 42nd Birthday, Amy!


Good evening, dear readers, and happy Monday! Today's blog post is in honor of Amy, the creative darling behind the indie brand Literary Lacquers. Today is her 42nd birthday, and to celebrate, she has created a polish with the most appropriate inspiration, The Ultimate Answer.
The Ultimate Answer was inspired by The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. The number 42 is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything, and I couldn't think of a more perfect inspiration for Amy's 42nd birthday,
The Ultimate Answer is a peacock green polish with light linear holo pigment and packed with silver holo microglitter and subtle tiny silver holo stars.
The formula of The Ultimate Answer was flawless- not too thick or thin, and the small glitters spread nicely over my nails. The stars are intended to be subtle, so I only got a few stars as I painted my nails. I used three thin coats plus top coat for these swatch photos.

I am in love with this polish! The base colour has just the slightest hint of blue, and I love the surprise of the flash from the stars as the light hits them at just the right angle. It is a fabulous celebration polish!
The Ultimate Answer will be sold at the Literary Lacquers etsy shop located here for one weekend only. It will be available for purchase from August 28th through August 30th. That is this upcoming weekend! The bottles will be numbered. You don't want to miss out on this beauty!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful evening!
XO!

  6. Gorgeous! I'm not even normally a fan of shaped glitter, but I find myself wishing the starts stood out a bit more.
