Announcement   Welcome to my little haven for well-read polish lovers!

Gift with purchase through 7/9/17 – mini bottle with $20 purchase, full sized bottle with $50 purchase:
Feather Family – Sparkling Soft Pink holo
Inspired by The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
Named by Alex Bacon-Leslie, LitLaq Marketing Director

When I was searching for the right name for this gift with purchase polish to adequately express the gratitude I have for the support and love given to me by my fans and customers as I come out of this long dark period of LitLaqlessness, Alex pointed me in the direction of The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, a brilliantly fun sci-fi book by Becky Chambers. The book introduces a few interesting alien species, including Sissix, the reptilian feathered Aandrisk tech.
“Okay, well, on her wall, there’s this big fancy frame with a mess of Aandrisk feathers hanging from it. Every Aandrisk’s got one, as far as I know. See, if you’re an Aandrisk and somebody really touches your life in some way, you give that person one of your feathers. And then you keep the feathers you get from others as a symbol of how many paths you’ve crossed. Having a lot of feathers on your wall shows that you’ve had an impact on a lot of people. That’s a pretty big priority for most Aandrisks. But they don’t give feathers out casually, not, like for helping you carry something or giving you a free drink or whatever. It’s got to be an experience that sticks with you, but it can totally be between strangers.”
Thanks for being my feather family.

About

Inspired by two passions: literature and polish

Literary Lacquers was founded at 7,000 feet above sea level in the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2012 out of a desire to combine my two biggest passions: literature and polish. Each polish is inspired by a literary reference and I attempt to evoke in color and texture the feel of the passage or work to me. I'm fascinated with the way that light passes through polish and bounces off shimmers and glitters and I've worked to develop complex and original finishes to my polishes.

All of the polishes are 3-free and each contains two stainless steel shaker balls.

All of my purchased shipping materials are 100% recycled and my greenwrap is 100% compostable as well as being recyclable. It's even cute!

Shop policies

Welcome to Literary Lacquers! I strive to create unique and complex polishes inspired by works of literature. I use only recycled shipping materials and special greenwrap that's compostable and recyclable. I love polish and the polish community and hope to bring joy to you with my creations. Each batch is handmixed with joyful loving intent in the high desert of Santa Fe. Because each polish is created by hand, there may be some variations among bottles.

Returns and exchanges
In the case of a breakage in shipping, please contact me with a photo of the damage and I will replace (or refund, if the polish is not available for some reason) the polish and shipping costs.

If you have a problem with the formulation, please let me know. Polish is an interesting medium to work with. Sometimes ingredients do weird things and while I do thoroughly test my ingredients, it's impossible for me to replicate every polish storage situation. I recommend storing nail polish in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
