Darling readers! It’s really turning out to be Literary Lacquers week here at Boom Shaka Lacquer. There might be a reason for that…uhm because they are awesome! So today’s Pink Post is going to feature the raspberry pink twin sister to Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster; Raspberry Cordial!
Raspberry Cordial is inspired by Anne of Green Gables when Anne (with an E if you please) and her friend Rachel Berry mistake some of Marilla’s homemade wine for Raspberry Cordial…hilarity and tragedy ensue from this debacle and there is no doubt that it’s one of the memorable scenes from the book!
So I said it was the sister to PGGB. It is a dark raspberry pink linear jelly holographic polish filled with the same holographic sparks that PGGB has! These two are definitely related (Also how smart is Amy, both of them are named after DRINKS).
The formula on this one is virtually the same as PGGB as well. Starts off sheer but builds nicely. The pictures show 2.5 coats plus topcoat! I threw in a flash photo to show off the linear holographic feature since the sunlight wasn’t cooperating.
Polishes Used: Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu; Literary Lacquers – Raspberry Cordial; Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That Topcoat
So I couldn’t bear not to do a little nail art…so here we go!
So for this nail art look (which I’m still wearing!) I started with a base of Literary Lacquers – Annabelle Lee. Using my largest dotting tool I made large dots down the middle of my nails with Literary Lacquers – Raspberry Cordial. Then I went in with a smaller dotting tools and added six more dots using Color Club – Halo-graphic. I am totally digging on this mani…even my aunt said it was one of her favorites! This is also very easy so even beginners can do these kinds of nail art looks!
Polishes Used: Sally Hansen – Complete Care 4-in-1 Treatment; Literary Lacquers – Annabelle Lee; Literary Lacquers – Raspberry Cordial; Color Club – Halo-graphic; Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That Topcoat
