Literary Lacquer - Special Gift Polish, "A Thousand Christmas Trees"

Today I have the honor of showing off a very special polish from Literary Lacquers! 

A Thousand Christmas Trees is a beautiful polish that is only available as a gift with purchase from Literary Lacquers the week of Black Friday and Cyber Monday (11/26 - 12/2). You won't be able to buy Christmas Trees seperately, but if you buy 20 dollars or more worth of polish you will recieve a Mini with your order... or buy 50$ or more and get a Full size! This way Amy can give her loyal customers a Limited Edition polish without the pain of resellers scooping up the LE, while making sure it is attainable on most any budget.

My favorite Christmas Tree!

Amy worked with Rebecca Lynne of Goosesglitter.com to create this beautiful polish. Rebecca wanted a deep green holo with a rainbow of sparkles, and Amy brought the idea of the poem, "Christmas Trees" by Robert Frost. Once she saw what that partnership had created she knew she couldn't keep this one to herself! And what better way to share something beautiful than to gift it to another?

"A thousand Christmas trees I didn’t know I had!

Worth three cents more to give away than sell,

As may be shown by a simple calculation.
Too bad I couldn’t lay one in a letter.
I can’t help wishing I could send you one,
In wishing you herewith a Merry Christmas."
Robert Frost

One Thousand Christmas Trees is a stunning pine green with both scattered AND burn your retinas linear holo. In lowlight it has an almost metallic sheen and there is still plenty of rainbow visible, but in the light this polish explodes with color! The holo is brilliant, and I love how strong the red color spectrum is! I can almost see a forest of decorated christmas trees burning brightly against the cold night, shining as a reminder of hope and love against the long winter chill. This is two coats with a layer of Seche Vite. Application was smooth and easy, but that isn't a surprise from LL! Dry time was quick and a day later I still have no tip wear. 

Amy is wonderful about keeping her shop stocked, which is great during such an amazing sale. Her newest Community collection is there, plus all her old favorites. Make sure you head over to Literary Lacquers' shop and grab some polish!  No code is necessary to recieve Christmas Tree, just as long a your purchase is over 20$ (for mini) or 50$ (for large!) you will find it in the package.

Thanks for reading!
