Literary Lacquers Anne With an E: Aren't you the little surprise!

You know how there's always that one polish in a collection that you look at and say "I have nothing again you, you're pretty, but...I dunno.  I just don't think we're gonna click."  And then the more you look at in in the bottle the more your mind starts to say "Actually I think I do like you!".  I had these feeling followed by "I know what polish would look FANTASTIC with you" and "I'm hungry."

Little book info first!  Anne With an E is how Anne insists her name is spelt as it looks better than Ann without the E.

Now the polish!  It's medium silver and multicoloured iridescent, hex glitter.  As well as some large and super tiny multicoloured iridescent, hex glitter.  You can pretty much put this over any base.  Over a lighter colour you get this whimsical, fairy tale feel,  And over darker colours you get this cosmic feel.

The first colour I tried it on was Essence Sweet as Candy.  I knew these two HAD to be layered together.  I thought their creaminess would mesh perfectly together.  I used one coat on these ones.  I decided for my darker polish to use H&M Plum.  As I wanted something dark that wasn't black.  On this I used 2 coats.  You should know on the darker polish you could see the creamy base.  Not so much after the first coat, but after the second.  I would say if you are using more than one coat of this over a dark colour be careful.  The milkiness looks fin but if you're not careful it may look patchy.

I think I can safely say this polish is amazing!  Even as someone who dosn't wear soft colours a lot I think this is a great look and I have a dress that goes PERFECTLY with it!

If you would like a bottle of Anne With an E go over to Literary Lacquers etsy page.  The full size bottle retail for $10.61 Canadian.  Hopefully the sun will come out tomorrow and I'll be able to photograph the last 2 polishes! Ps. Annie.

*Product sent for honest review.


  1. It's so pretty! I'm a fan of Anne of Green Gables. I wasn't aware of this collection of polishes! I saw the headline "Anne with an E" and I instantly thought of Anne Shirley :)

  2. I love this over Sweet as Candy! The glitter mix is so feminine. This collection is so tempting me...I always wanted to marry Gilbert Blythe.

  3. I'm so in love with it over Sweet As Candy!! So soft and pretty!

  4. Oh, I love this! Especially over the pale pink, but the cosmic vibe over the plum is seriously rad too. ;)

  5. Soooo pretty! And I totally get that uncertainty ---> love feeling with polishes all the time haha

  6. This is a stunning glitter! I love it with Plum! :)

  7. It's very pretty over both polishes - but especially much so over Sweet as Candy!

  8. This looks great over both polishes! :D
