Horrible shop to deal with in getting your order Wrote email after email to this shop about my order, "Which I NEVER received", NO reply. Finally I contacted Esty about this and I got a FULL refund. Would never order from this shop again in a million Years

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!

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.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Other Method
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.
