Literary Lacquers Marilla's Amethyst Brooch: Any excuse to whip out my googly eyed amethyst

Blah, I'm getting sick :(.  My throat is raw and overall I just feel really yucky.  And to top it all off I'm cold.  Poop.  My problems aside lets move on to another one of Literary Lacquers polishes from the new Anne of Green Gables collection.

Today I have Marilla's Amethyst Brooch.  Now the name of the polish gives two things away. 1)It was a brooch that belonged to Marilla, the lady who along with her brother adopted Anne.  It was a favourite of hers.  2) The colour of the polish is Amethyst.  Well if you really want to get specific Literary Lacquers describes it as Amethyst shimmer with a pink to orange color-shifting flash.  I only needed 2 coats for full opacity but you may need 3 depending on how thick or thin your coats are.  While getting the orange shimmer to show may be a bit trickier the pink is very evident.  This polish kind of reminds me of Essence Color & Go Oh My Glitter.  This polish is like Oh My Glitter's complex, mature sister.  Overall this is a colour I really like.  It's glowy, fun, not afraid to show it, and at the same time is not obnoxious.

And just so you know he last 2 photos are with my chunk of raw amethyst.  And yes, the amethyst has googly eyes.  Because what 16 year old doesn't want a rock with googly eyes for her birthday!  I think it makes the rock even more beautiful.

Anyways if you would like Marilla's Amethyst Brooch go over to Literary Lacquers etsy page.  The full size bottle retail for $10.61 Canadian.

First 2 photos natural light, last 4 light box.

    1. Honestly, I do very little apart from Vaseline after showers, and I try and stay healthy in general. Every now and then I use cuticle oil or butter if I feel my nails need a bit worn.
