Literary Lacquers ~ Raspberry Cordial?


Literary Lacquers ~ Raspberry Cordial?
Pink linear holographic with holo glitters added

This is the third holo from the Green Gables Collection, which came out this summer.

As with the other two that I’ve tried, I used an aqua base coat to make sure that the polish had the best potential to look great. And as with the other two (Lake of the shining waters – link here – and Green Gables – link here) it took three coats before the polish was fully opaque. Drying time was pretty good though, so I didn’t mind the multiple coats that much.

And here’s what the polish looks like in the sunshine. There’s no topcoat involved just yet:


The holo isn’t as strong in Raspberry Cordial, but it’s prominent enough for me. And it’s got glitters too – I love that combo!


I stamped on it! I used my XL stamping plate O for the flowery design, and I stamped with “Bleu Mystérieux” from Bourjois. It’s not a stamping polish as such, but it’s a deep blue and it works great over colours like this one. I didn’t topcoat it before taking these pics:


I quite like how this turned out. I think the blue looks really great over the pink. It takes a bit of the cute and adds a bit of edge. I like that!


One last picture, just because!


So all in all – yes, I like this polish. I would have loved to have had another holo with glitter. You should know by now that I’m a holo glitter fan, so to have both in one polish is a double win!

Please tell me what you think of this in the comments below :)

  3. As long as the holo is not so bright, the polish looks quite interesting. Dark blue stamping is very pretty adding to it :)

  5. The polish is nice on its own but the dark blue stamping definitely adds a lot!

    1. I find that stamps often do that to girly polishes - I love that :)
