Nails: Literary Lacquers Phenomenal Woman

And it’s Monday. Again.

Today I put on a polish that I swatched here over a year ago, but I don’t think I’ve ever worn as a full manicure - Phenomenal Woman from Literary Lacquers.

A question came up on the Literary & Lacquers Facebook page about what color this polish is supposed to be. The polish in real life does not match the pictures that have been posted in various places. I took a look for myself then decided to try one more time to capture this beauty as she truly is. So I pulled mine out and put it on. There are three coats here. I think my previous pics were only two coats.

I did have to use flash for these photos. No sun plus a failing light made flash a necessity. It also means what you see here is a bit lighter than what's actually on my nails. Unless I look at it in a different light get the idea.

I would call this a dusty mauve with a bronze shift. The holo is very strong, which I think is why it doesn’t look the same all the time. Some pictures look like a darker magenta while others will look more pink-y/purple-y/bronze-y.

Whatever color you want to call it, I still think it’s gorgeous. I’m now wondering why I don’t pull this one out more often. 

That’s it for today. Thanks for reading and stay tuned.
